Mumbai's Siddhesh Lad smashed a 100 off 105 balls
Rajasthan pulled off a six-wicket win over formidable Mumbai with opener Amit Gautam slamming an unbeaten 149 in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Group 'C' League here yesterday. Gautam did the star turn for Rajasthan after its rival had posted 268 for 8 riding on Siddhesh Lad's second century in the tournament. The Rajasthan's opener knock was embellished with 16 boundaries and four sixes.
For Mumbai, Lad, who stroked an exact 100 (8x4, 4x6) and Prithvi Shaw 52 (7x4), were the main scorers. Rajasthan's Syed Khaleel Ahmed bottled things up bagging four wickets for 35 runs in the match played at TI Murugappa cricket ground.
Vidarbha win four in row
Ranji champions Vidarbha overcame a jittery start to prevail over Services by 17 runs at the Gymkhana Ground in Secunderabad, consolidating their lead with 16 points from four matches. Half of Vidarbha's side were dismissed for 50 runs inside 14 overs with Raushan Raj (3/49) ripping through their top- order. Karn Sharma came up with a splendid all-round effort (54 and 2/50) while Apoorv Wankhade (73) and Akshay Karnewar (45) also made valuable contributions to lift them to a fighting 267-9.
Services' No. 9 batsman Diwesh Pathania stood tall amid the ruins with a valiant 100 not out from 77 balls, but his effort went in vain as they suffered a fourth defeat in row.
