Chasing 227 for a win at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, India A were in trouble at 142 for six before <g data-gr-id="10">Gurkeerat</g> (87 not out) and Sanju Samson (24 not out) stitched an unbeaten 87-run stand to pull off a four-wicket win. <g data-gr-id="11">Unmukt</g> admitted the teams follies but praised the batting duo. “Of course we did not bat well really in the middle overs of the ten overs. Mayank got run out, it was unfortunate.
