Darwin, Australia: Young opener Manan Vohra and limited overs specialist Mohit Sharma came up with fine performances as India A posted a comfortable six-wicket win over Australia's National Performance Squad in the Quadrangular 'A' Series to brighten their chances of a berth in the finals.

Opting to bat, NPS were restricted to 217 for nine, largely due to a fine bowling effort from medium pacer Mohit, who grabbed four for 48, while left-arm spinner Akshar Patel took two for 51 in their stipulated 10 overs.

India A knocked off the runs in only 38 overs as Punjab opener Manan smashed his way to a 95-ball 88 studded with 12 boundaries. He was well supported during a 108-run fourth wicket partnership with 'A' team veteran Ambati Rayudu (70 not out) after they were in a spot of bother at 88 for three.
