Haryana are on a roll. After getting the better of Punjab by one run in their opening match, they whacked Himachal by 100 runs on Friday to notch up their second consecutive win.
Batting first, Haryana’s Pradeep Sahu (47), Joginder Sharma (45), Ankit Rawat (33) and Prateek Pawar (33) chipped in with useful contributions to help the team post a modest 189.
For Himachal, Kuldeep Diwan was pick of the bowlers, picking up a five-wicket haul.
Chasing the modest target, Himachal put up a miserable show and were bowled out for mere 88 runs.
Sanjay Budhwar (4-27) and Joginder Sharma (2 for 16) nipped their chase in the bud itself.
