Irfan Pathan and Hardik Pandya shared six wickets between themselves to rattle Gujarat and bowl them out for 79 in the West Zone qualifiers of Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2014 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Gujarat had won the toss and had opted to bat.

Gujarat got off to a disastrous start with Irfan Pathan running through the top-order. Parthiv Patel was the first to caught by Rakesh Solanki for seven from 10 balls. His innings included one crisp punch through the covers in the first over of the match.

Within quick time Rujul Bhatt and Manpreet Juneja too were on their way back. Pathan’s first spell read 3-1-11-3. And Gujarat were further pushed with Munaf Patel maintaining a tight line from the opther end. Lukman Meriwala too contributed with the wicket of Venugopal Rao.

Gujarat never found any momentum in their innings. There was a brief partnership for the sixth wicket with opener Smith Patel hanging around but there was no acceleration in sight. It was pacer Hardik Pandya who came back to break the resistance bagging two wickets in an over of Smith and Rohit Dahiya. Pandya bowled four overs on the trot which included one maiden and three wickets for seven runs.

Irfan Pathan came back in the 17th over. Mehul Patel was run-out by a brilliant throw from Aditya Waghmaode at covers. Spinner Krunal Pandya sent back Jasprit Bumrah in the 18th over. Gujarat dragged their innings and it was a comical end to the innings with Jesal Karia being run-out. Both the batsmen were running towards the same end, Karia slipped and was run-out.

Brief scores:

Gujarat 79 in 19.4 overs (Smith Patel 28; Hardik Pandya 3 for 7, Irfan Pathan 3 for 17) vs Baroda.
