India A suffer two-wicket loss to South Africa A
India A put up a listless batting display to suffer a two-wicket loss at the hands of hosts South Africa A in a low-scoring one-dayer of the Tri-Series here on Wednesday.
Put into bat, skipper Manish Pandey (55) emerged as the top-scorer for India A before they were bundled out for 152 in 41.5 overs.
South Africa A then huffed and puffed their way to overhaul the target, scoring 153 for 8 in 37.4 overs here.
Dwaine Pretorius (3/24) shone for South Africa A with a three-wicket haul and a crucial 38 off 54 balls, which included three fours and a six.
Chasing a modest target, South Africa A found the going tough as they were 16 for 2 after losing H Davids (5) and D Paterson (11) early.
By 16th over, the hosts had lost half their side with 71 runs on board as R Hendricks (11), K Zondo (15) and H Klaasen (24) were sent back to the hut.
