IES VN Sule Guruji, resuming on their overnight score of 32-5, looked to delay the inevitable. But their hopes were dashed when they lost three quick wickets and later were bowled out for a paltry score. Al Barkaat’s Anurag claimed a fifer. The left-arm spinner was well supported by leg-spinner Adil Sayyed (2-17).
