HIM won by 77 runs.
 
Himachal Pradesh making their debut in the finals and they have outplayed the Services' side. A stellar performance from the bowling side as they got the entire team all out with almost 4 overs remaining and they have shown with their excellent and consistent bowling and fielding as to why they deserve to be in the finals. The match started with the bowlers giving an exceptional performance where the batters could barely middle the ball for the big runs and to add to it, it was Rishi Dhawan who lead the team from the front with the bat, ball and the fielding as he scored 84 runs, took 4 wickets and one catch! Talk about a one man army here! The batters had absolutely no reply to this and the pressure of the increasing run rate, lead to the wickets falling one after the other. The batters like Paliwal, who made a 55 and Akash Vasisht towards the lower order making a 45, did what they could but the run rate and the innings was so slow due to them not being able to connect the ball for the big shots that they were eventually going to lose the match. It was an excellent example of captaincy and leading the team by example which motivated the players of Himachal Pradesh to collectively play as one strong unit and march their way to their first ever finals of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Thank you so much for tuning in for the match. This is Navjeevan Rajput and Pranav Danani signing off. Until Next time.

Himachal Pradesh win by 77 runs.
