Krunal's 3-for overshadows Pujara's ton as Sussex lose close encounter

The Sussex skipper fell with just 20 runs more required for a win

Star India batter Cheteshwar Pujara cracked 22 runs in an over en route to his scintillating 107 off 79 balls for his county side Sussex in the Royal London One Day Cup in Birmingham.

However, Pujara's innings went in vain as Sussex fell short by four runs while chasing Warwickshire's 310 for 6 on Friday (August 12).

Pujara, India's batting mainstay in Tests, looked in ominous touch as he slammed three fours and a six in the 45th over off medium pacer Liam Norwell to keep Sussex in the chase.

Overall, Pujara smashed seven fours and two sixes during his innings. He was dismissed in the first ball of the 49th over by Oliver Hannon-Dalby as Sussex finished at 306 for seven.

Pandya snaps three wickets

Spin all-rounder Krunal Pandya, who turned up for Warwickshire, played an important role in his side's win as he made amends for his two-ball duck with a three-wicket haul.

Pandya took the wickets of Ali Orr (81), Tom Clark (30) and Delray Rawlins (11) to return with figures of 10-0-51-3.

Earlier, Robert Yates hit a 111-ball 114, while Will Rhodes (76) and Michael Burgess (58) cracked fifties to take Warwickshire to a 300-plus total.

Brief scores:

Warwickshire 310 for 6 in 50 overs (Robert Yates 114, Will Rhodes 78; Aristides Karvelas2 for 44) beat Sussex  306 for 7 in 50 overs (Cheteshwar Pujara 107, Alastair Orr 81; Krunal Pandya 3 for 51) by 4 runs
