Mayank Agarwal scored 116 as Karnataka defeated Goa by 71 runs in the South Zone Subbaiah Pillai limited overs match on Monday. Electing to bat, Karnataka lost Robin Uthappa after he had made a quick 27 with four fours and a six in as many balls, before edging Garg to Gadekar.

But the aggressive Agarwal took charge of the Goa attack and clobbe­r­e­d the bowlers with gay ab­­a­­ndon as the ball often screamed t­o the boundaries. He was involved in a 96-run stand for the second wicket with KL Rahul, who made a sed­ate 40, before being castled by Amog Desai. Agarwal and Manish Pandey put on 70 ru­n­­s for the third wicket.

But Agarwal perished after making 116 off 102 deliveries with  13 fours and three huge sixers.  Goa were never in the hunt and except for a brave knock of 63 by Sagun Kamat, they never came to terms with Abrar Kazi who bagged 4 for 49.

Tamil Nadu match against Kerala was washed out wit­h­out a ball being bowled. Before Monday’s match Tamil Nadu had won three matches out of three.

Brief scores: Karnataka 312/9 in 45 overs (Mayank Agarwal 116, Amit Yadav 3/54) bt Goa 241 in 43.2 overs (S Kamat 63, A Kazi 4/49, Vinay Kumar 3 /47) by 71 runs.

Hyderabad 166 in 47.5 overs (H Vihari 43, H Ahmed 44 no, Swaroop Kumar 4/21,) lost to Andhra 167/4 in 40.1 overs (K S Bharath 60) by 6 wkts.
