India A vs New Zealand A third one-dayer: Shardul ‘Beefy’ Thakur’s day out, Tom Bruce finds the hang-time, Tilak Varma offers future promise

Shardul Thakur’s blazing cameo and Tom Bruce’s acrobatic effort at long-on to Tilak Varma’s measured aggression, here are the main highlights from the third and final unofficial one-dayer between India A and New Zealand A at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. India A bagged the series 3-0, with a 106-run win. 

Thakur's overall capacities have procured him the epithet Husky, a la Ian Botham, inside the India changing area. He gave a brief look at his batting fireworks

when he hit 51 off 33 at a strike rate of 154.55, powering India to 284. Thakur was particularly severe on Logan van Beek, hitting him for two sixes and a four in one over. Sixty-three percent of his runs came on the on-side.

Thakur was not piece of the actually shut Asia Cup, nor was he picked in the team for the looming T20 World Cup. After the essential casual one-dayer,

Thakur had said that commander Rohit Sharma and lead trainer Rahul Dravid were checking out at him for every one of the three configurations. With the following ODI World Cup in India set to happen in a little more than a year, the crease bowling all-rounder is having a special interest with his exhibitions. Duffy, Fisher and Rippon took two wickets each.
