Bengaluru: Mayank Agarwal continued his good form, hammering a 90-ball 109 to star in Karnataka's 85-run (via VJD method) against Baroda in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Group 'A' league in Bengaluru on Wednesday.

Sent into bat by Baroda captain Deepak Hooda, the host suffered an early setback when Test opener KL Rahul fell for just three.

Agarwal was in superb touch and played shots all round the wicket to keep the scoreboard ticking.

Though Test discard Karun Nair failed to get going, Agarwal found an able partner in R Samarth (77) and the duo added 95 runs to set the platform for Karnataka.

After the exit of Agarwal for 109, Samarth added 74 runs with Pavan Deshpande.

The stylish right-hander hit 14 fours and two sixers in his knock.

A middle order wobble saw Karnataka lose a few quick wickets, but skipper R Vinay Kumar blasted a quickfire 34 towards the end to help the team finish at 312 for 9.

In reply, Baroda lost wickets at regular intervals to fall behind the run rate.

Only opener Kedar Devdhar (48) and all-rounder Krunal Pandya (39) showed the intent, but good bowling by K Gowtham (4/42) and Shreyas Gopal (3/30) pegged them back.

All-rounder Yusuf Pathan, who is returning to the game after serving a doping ban,made only two runs off seven balls.
