Mushtaq Ali Trophy: Delhi inch closer to knock-out berth with win over Goa | Cricket News – Times of India

JAIPUR: Skipper Nitish Rana and Yash Dhull continued their stellar run with the bat as Delhi moved one step closer to a knock-out berth with a six-wicket win over Goa in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy on Thursday.
India pacer Navdeep Saini took a couple of wickets in a brilliant bowling performance that saw Delhi restrict Goa to 131 for six in 20 overs.
Dhull, who made his senior T20 debut in the competition, struck 46 off 41 balls while Rana remained unbeaten on 49 off 38 balls to script a comfortable win.
It was Delhi’s fifth win in six games and they will play their final league game in Group B against Tripura on Saturday.
Considering the team did not make the knockout stage across formats last season, it has been a good beginning for Delhi under new captain Rana and new head coach Abhay Sharma.
If they top the group, they move straight into the quarterfinals but a second place finish would require them to play a pre-quarterfinal.
