Pune: Feb 20, 2013

Sheldon Jackson‘s century for Saurashtra went in vain for as Gujarat rode on stupendous top-order batting to thrash the rivals by six wickets in a Vijay Hazare trophy (West Zone) match.

Asked to bat, Saurashtra did well to score 269 for six with Jackson scoring a 109 after batting for almost 40 overs.

Rahul Dave (36) and Chirah Jani (31) also batted well in the middle order for Saurashtra even though they could not build on the good starts.

Mehul Patel was the most successful bowler for Gujarat with three wickets at the expense of 52 runs.

Gujarat skipper Parthiv Patel led from the front as he top scored for the side with a 78-run knock and laid the foundation of the easy win by sharing a 136-run stand with fellow opener Priyank Panchal (70).

After Panchal’s fall, Munprit Juneja came up with a brilliant 66-run knock to steer Gujarat close to win.

Juneja kept the one end tight after Patel’s dismissal and he was out when Gujarat needed only two runs to win with plenty of balls available.

In the end, Gujarat won with three overs to spare as Abdulahad Malik (26 not out) scored the inning runs with Akshar Patel (0 not out) giving him company on the other end.
