Rajkot: Apr 12, 2014

Opener Prashant Gupta‘s struck his maiden Twenty20 (T20) century to guide Uttar Pradesh to a commanding six-wicket win over Haryana in a Group A match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy at Rajkot on Saturday.

Chasing a stiff 179-run target set by Haryana, Prashant all and sundry with a whirlwind unbeaten 102 off just 58 balls to single-handedly ensure the win for UP with four balls to spare.

Earlier sent into bat, Haryana posted a competitive 178 for the loss of eight wickets in their allotted 20 overs.

Rahul Deewan was the top-socrer for Haryana scoring 46 off 37 balls with six fours. He gave the visitors a good start along with Avi Barot (35). The two openers added 63 runs in just five overs before getting separated.

Guntshveer Singh (21) and Rahul Dalal (24) also made useful contributions for Haryana.

The 23-year-old Prasanth hammered seven sixes and five fours during his fiery knock.
