After Aakarshit was dismissed in the 9th over, Arjun came in to bat and started poorly by playing some bad shots. He was dropped on 5 by Vaibhav off Parikshit Valasangkar. His partner Siddharth Akre calmed him down before he took off again and scored 23 off 19 balls. He mistimed the ball again and was caught by Vinayak Bhoir on long-off.
