India U-19 snatch thrilling last ball victory

The Hindu
Friday, August 30, 2002

London, Aug. 30 (PTI) - Last man Chadra Shekar Atram hit
a six off the last ball as India requiring four runs from
it scored a sensational one wicket victory against
England in the second Under-19 one-day international at
Taunton last evening.

The nail-biting finish, after their three wicket win in
the first ODI in Bristol on Tuesday, also enabled India
to take a winning 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Fortunes fluctuated wildly in the match but Atram's
heroics, smashing a four and a six in the last two balls
saw India reach the readjusted target of 259 in 47 overs,
following a rain delay.

England's total of 269 in 50 overs was based around a
marvellous 103 from Lancashire's Kyle Hogg, who also
claimed three wickets as India collapsed from a
comfortable 154 for no loss to 237 for nine.

However, Atram (19 n.o.), in the company of K Rawat (22
n.o.), saw India home with a 25-run last-wicket
partnership to spark scenes of joy on the outfield.
