Bengaluru, September 5. Talented batsman Tilak Verma hit his first-class century while Kuldeep Yadav bowled quite controlled, leading to the first unofficial cricket Test draw between India A and New Zealand A here on Sunday. New Zealand A scored 133 for four in the second innings after which the match was over. Earlier, India A captain Priyank Panchal declared the first innings at 571 for six. In this Tilak scored 121 runs in 183 balls and was the third century of the innings. The big thing in Indian bowling was the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav who took two wickets for 38 runs in 22 overs in the second innings.

The match was heading for a draw, but the left-arm spinner bowled with more control and precision than in the first innings. In the first innings, he took a wicket for 119 runs in 34 overs. He caught New Zealand A right-arm openers Chad Bowes (five off 20 balls) with excellent left-arm spin googlies. Bowes went forward to play a defensive shot but the ball turned and ended up kissing his bat in the hands of Ruturaj Gaikwad who was in the slips.

He also got Mark Chapman out but the way he diversified the pace of his balls was great to watch. The important thing in the match was that Kuldeep bowled a total of 56 overs in the match. He will play at least one more Test in the remaining two as Rahul Chahar also gets a game. After this, Kuldeep will tour Bangladesh after playing domestic cricket for Uttar Pradesh. Tilak dazzled in India A debut. Prior to his first unofficial Test, he had played only four first-class matches and his best score was 90 runs.

The left-handed batsman grabbed everyone’s attention when he played for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League this year, hitting nine fours and six sixes during his innings. In the match, Abhimanyu Easwaran (132 runs) batted brilliantly against the new ball and laid the foundation for the big score, while Rajat Patidar (176 runs) blew the New Zealand A bowlers apart. But Tilak’s effort cannot be said to be less because the team had reached a strong position and the pressure was less.
