Virender Sehwag was in the mood for destruction on Tuesday and it was the Jammu & Kashmir bowlers who bore the brunt of it. While the world was busy watching the World Cup semifinal between New Zealand and South Africa, Delhi started their T20 campaign in style with a 26-run win over Jammu & Kashmir in the Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy North Zone match here at the Ferozshah Kotla. Riding on Virender Sehwag’s 50-ball 85, Delhi register a 26-run win over Jammu and Kashmir in the North Zone match of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Chasing 160 for a win at the Feroz Shah Kotla, the Delhi batsmen put up a concerted effort to achieve the target with three balls to spare. Sehwag was the top-scorer with his 35-ball knock, including 3 fours and 3 sixes, but finally done in by caught and bowled effort from opposition skipper Harbhajan Singh (1-25)
Coming to bat at number three position, Sehwag sent the J&K bowlers for a leather-hunt to score his runs off just 50 balls with the help of seven boundaries and five sixes and help Delhi pile up a competitive 159 runs for the loss of six wickets at the Feroze Shah Kotla ground.
