Arbazz Uddin and Aryan Bangar’s fifer rattle Mizoram

In the first innings of Mizoram, Puducherry’s rookie Arbazz Uddin returned with a haul of 5 wickets for 32 runs off 11 overs, with an economy rate of 2.91, which rattled Mizoram. Arbazz was well supported by Aryan Bangar (2 for 19 off 11.2 overs). In the second innings of Mizoram, it was Aryan Bangar’s turn, who took 5 for 26 off 13 overs with an economy rate of 2.00 and this time Arbazz Uddin, who took 3 for 15 off 9.3 overs, supported his team mate Bangar.

With a deficit of 231 runs, Mizoram lost their way in the second innings also as the openers were dismissed again cheaply and with that, it was the hunt for Puducherry bowlers. Except Lalhriatrenga, who scored 43 off 49 balls with 8 hits to the fence, none of the Mizoram batsmen could resist Puducherry bowlers who were on wicket taking spree, and the visitors were bowled out for 87 off 31.3 overs. As the bowlers Aryan Bangar (5 for 26), Arbazz Uddin (3 for 15) and the skipper Rishab Belavadi (2 for 31) shared the wickets among themselves, Puducherry won the match by an innings and 144 runs with two days to spare.
