Karnataka defeated Hyderabad by 12 runs in the Syed Mustaq Ali South Zone T20 cricket tournament here on Thursday. Put in to bat, Karnataka made 185 with Mayank Agarwal helping himself to a superb century off just 64 balls with seven fours and four sixes. Mayank and Manish Pandey (31) put on 85 for the opening wicket to lay the foundation for a good total. Although Karnataka lost four wickets in a heap with the three of them being out for a duck, they managed to put up a competitive total. CV Milind (3 for 13) and B P Sandeep (2 for 34) bowled well for Hyderabad.

Hyderabad began their chase sedately but lost wickets regularly to fall short. T L Suman (36), PA Reddy (24), AA Bhandari (30) and BP Sandeep (21) produced useful knocks to keep their hopes alive. But part-time bowlers Manish Pandey and K Gowtham bagged four wickets each as they struck at regular intervals to ensure Karnataka won by 12 runs.

Meanwhile, Kerala shocked Tamil Nadu by four wickets with four balls to spare in another close match. Arun Karthik (66), Abhinav Mukund (41) and  Dinesh Karthik (44) enabled TN post a challenging 183 for 3. But Kerala found their hero in opener VA Jagadeesh, who hammered 75 off 51 balls to lead their charge.
