ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

Karthik struck a blistering century before bowlers came to the fore as defeated Bengal by 37 runs to lift the Vijay Hazare Trophy at Feroz Shah Kotla here in the national capital on Monday.

Opting to bat first, Karthik was the lone significant scorer for as he slammed 14 boundaries in his 112-run knock to guide his side to a total of 217.

For Bengal, Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers for his figures of four for 26 followed by Ashok Dinda's three for 36.Kanishk Seth also took a wicket.

In reply, an unbelievable disciplined bowling by bowlers restricted Bengal to 180 in their stipulated 50 overs, despite some good efforts by Sudip Chatterjee (58) and Manoj Tiwari (32).

While Aswin Crist, M Mohammed, Rahil Shah bagged two wickets each, Vijay Shankar, and Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore all chipped in to defend a small total.

It was for the third time that prevailed over Bengal in the 50-over competition, having earlier beaten them in 2008-09 and 2009-10.
