Chasing 300+ totals in a One Day Game is always challenging but Railways Team made it look easy courtesy a brilliant 238 run stand for 2nd wicket between opener Rudra Dhanday and Sahab Yuvraj Singh. Rudra who is known for his flamboyant strokeplay and solid technique dazzled with a match winning knock of 152 runs in just 141 balls, a knock which oozed maturity and controlled aggression as he smashed 16 boundaries and 1 six. S Yuvraj Singh on the other hand scored 126 off 101 balls as Railways clinched a massive 8 wkt win in BCCI Men’s U25 State A Trophy.
