Mumbai: Rishabh Pant sizzled in his first ever match for India ‘A’ and smashed 59 off only 36 balls to overshadow captain Ajinkya Rahane's compact 91 as a new-look India ‘A’ cruised to a six-wicket victory over England in the second warm-up game, in Mumbai on Thursday.

Chasing a target of 283, India ‘A’ knocked off the runs in 39.4 overs. Sheldon Jackson, who hit 59 off 56 balls, added 119 runs for the opening stand with Rahane. Senior pro Suresh Raina did the finisher's job with a 45 off 34 balls. Such was his dominance that his contribution was 59 off the 78 runs scored in only 8.4 overs -- added for the second wicket with Rahane.

Earlier, opting to bat first, the England innings was nurtured in the main by half centuries from opener Alex Hales (51) and Jonny Bairstow (64) before it got into the mire against the home side's spin attack.
