Opener Deepak played a really well placed innings of 74 runs in 76 balls which had 13 fours at a healthy strike rate of almost 100.00. Apart from him, Abdul Hadi at the middle order fell just 1 run short of a deserving half century while young all-rounder Dubey chipped in with a cameo of a quick 13 ball 30 down the order pushing the team to a 200+ total.
