Match tied after India A collapse

The second one-dayer in Lincoln ended in a tie, with India A level with the Duckworth-Lewis par score of 240 at the end of 48 overs, chasing 250. Bad light brought an early end to the chase, and it was found that India had made just enough to escape defeat.*

The drama wasn’t restricted to the final moments. India appeared to have the match in the bag at 151 for 1, before the middle order, with the exception of Ambati Rayudu, succumbed for single-digit scores. They collapsed to the left-arm pace of Andy McKay, who took 5 for 50. McKay got the first wicket, that of Unmukt Chand, before the Indians wrested the initiative with a 99-run stand for the second wicket. Abhinav Mukund and Naman Ojha hit 60s in their stand, which came at 5.71 runs per over. The pair hit five sixes between them, with Ojha scoring at nearly a run-a-ball for his 62. Read more
