Dinesh Karthik scored a hundred to help Tamil Nadu beat Bengal by 37 runs in the final of Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik scored a marathon hundred (112) against Bengal to help Tamil Nadu lift the Vijay Hazare Trophy by 37 runs in Delhi on Monday.

Earlier, Tamil Nadu won the toss and elected to bat first. Up against the favorites Bengal, Tamil Nadu got off to a worst possible start as they lost four quick wickets within the first 10 overs. Relying on the shoulders of Karthik, they kept on cruising even with wickets falling from the other end, regularly.

With some late resistance from Washington Sundar and Baba Indrajith, Tamil Nadu crawled past 200 (217) in their allotted 50 overs. For Bengal, the returning Mohammad Shami picked up four wickets, including the big one of Dinesh Karthik, who scored 112 off 120 balls.

In reply, Bengal had a torrid start, losing three wickets inside 13 overs. Captain Manoj Tiwary and Sudeep Chatterjee had their side’s hopes going until some poor strides cost them their wicket. Chatterjee was the lone half-centurion from the side, but it was a brilliant bowling performance from the visitors which kept them ahead in the match.

Tamil Nadu then dismissed Bengal for 180 to register an emphatic win by 37 runs. This proved to be their fifth Vijay Hazare title win while Bengal have now lost five finals.
