Group D: HP survive Punjab scare to pick up three points
Services stave off Bengal assault, while Goa manage to earn one point after a massive push for victory from Chhattisgarh
Paras Dogra is a top-order batsman from Himachal Pradesh who has been active in the Indian first-class cricket circuit for more than a decade, after debuting in the 2001-02 season. He didn’t grab many headlines early on but the 2010-11 and 2011-12 domestic seasons have been rewarding for him with six half-centuries and three centuries, including a double ton against Tripura in November 2011. His IPL career began under Shane Warne at the Rajasthan Royals in 2010, but he didn’t have much success. However, on the back of his revamped first class showing, he was bought by Kings XI Punjab ahead of the 2011 season.
