BENGALURU: Tamil Nadu defeated Chhattisgarh by 14 runs for their second win in Group C in the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Tuesday.

Sent into bat by the opposition captain Harpreet Singh Bhatia, TN openers B Sai Sudharsan (121, 109 balls, 10 fours, 4 sixes) and N Jagadeesan (107, 113 balls, 10 fours, 2 sixes) put on 233 in 34.5 overs. The duo played some superb shots and sent the Chhattisgarh bowlers on a leather hunt.

Though the Tamil Nadu innings stuttered after the exit of Sudharsan and Jagadeesan, M Shahrukh Khan (28, 27 balls, 1 fours, 1 six) and B Aparajith (36, 19 balls, 3 fours, 2 sixes) provided the flourish towards the end as they finished at 340 for six in 50 overs.

Up against a mammoth target, both the Chhattisgarh openers were back in the pavilion with the score at 38. However, skipper Harpreet Singh (121, 129 balls, 11 fours, 2 sixes) and Amandeep Khare (115, 99 balls, 5 fours, 5 sixes) mounted a superb fightback, adding 214 runs in 199 balls to keep the team in the hunt.

The dismissals of Bhatia, who fell to J Kousik (2/52) and Khare to R Sonu Yadav (3/47) pegged Chhattisgarh back. The rest of the batters could not rise to the challenge and the team eventually fell short by 14 runs.

In another match, Andhra trounced Arunachal Pradesh by 261 runs with Abhishek Reddy (136) and skipper K S Bharat (100) playing key roles and Kerala scored over Goa thanks to Rohan Kunnummal's superb 134.
