Bengaluru, January 14, 2021

Young Abhishek Sharma cracked his maiden T20 century and left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar captured four wickets to help Punjab thrash the Railways by 117 runs in a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match in Alur on Thursday.

Opener Sharma's 62-ball 107 (5x4s, 9x6s) and his fellow opener-cum-wicketkeeper Prabhsimran Singh's 39-ball 63 (2x4s, 6x6s) propelled Punjab to 200 for four wickets in 20 overs. For the Railways, pacer Dhrushant Soni bagged two wickets.

In reply, the Railways folded up for 83 in 17.1 overs while facing rampaging Brar and left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh (3/16). T Pradeep was the top scorer for the Railways with 15.

Punjab collected four points from the win - their third in as many matches -- and they are now on top of Elite A with 12 points as the only unbeaten team in the group.
