In the second innings, Thakur once again provided the early breakthrough but Shahbaz Nadeem and Jalaj Saxena worked in tandem to take three and two wickets respectively. Jalaj’s all-round exploits have once again put him in the radar of the selectors as they look to pick the squad for the series against South Africa. Heinrich Klassen and Wiaan Mulder shared a 74-run stand for the seventh wicket but they did not find any support from the rest of the batsmen as they folded up for 186, giving India A a target of 49. In response, India A stuttered as Lungi Ngidi took the wickets of Shubman and Ankit Bawne while Dane Piedt got the wicket of Srikar Bharat but Ricky Bhui held firm with a solid 20 while Shivam Dube ended the innings in style with two sixes.
