Mumbai:  Apr 12,2014

Uttar Pradesh and Baroda qualified for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2014 final by topping their respective groups on the basis of better net run rate after finishing equal on points with Goa and Kerala.

UP defeated Haryana by six wickets by riding on Prashant Gupta‘s maiden T20 century (102 in 58 balls) to finish their Group A league engagements with 12 points from three wins in the five-team pool at Rajkot.

They had to wait for the conclusion of the last Group A pool game between Goa and Gujarat, that the former won by four wickets by blitzing their way to the winning total of 181 in only 15 overs for the loss of six wickets, to book their berth in the final with a better net run rate (+0.906) than Goa (+0.879) to top the pool.

A similar situation arose here when Baroda lost to Kerala by 22 runs, finished level on points (12) but pipped the winners in the race to the summit clash on better net run rate in Group B.

Baroda finished with NRR of +0.774 whereas Kerala ended up with NRR of +0.661.

The final between Baroda and UP would be played at the Wankhede Stadium on April 14.
