In another match at the PCA stadium, Haryana edged out Services by eight runs. It was paceman Ashish Hooda who turned the tide in Haryana's favour with his five-wicket haul.


Haryana put up a competitive 144 for seven after being asked to bat as opener Avi Barot played a superb knock of 78 from 58 balls. Services had a good start as openers Yashpal Singh (18) and Nakul Verma (46) added 60 runs for a strong foundation but they could mange 136 for seven in the end.

Hooda removed both the openers and also scalped Anshul Gupta (6) while Jayant Yadav dismissed Rajat Paliwal (4) to reduce Services to 75 for 4.

Soumya Swain waged a grim battle with an unbeaten 32 from one end but ran short of partners as Hooda got rid of two more batsman to script Haryana's second win in a row.
