Rajkot: Feb 27, 2014

Riding on a splendid century by Kedar Devdhar and a collective bowling effort led by Irfan Pathan, Baroda on Thursday defeated formidable Mumbai by 44 runs in the opening tie of the West Zone leg of Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Baroda amassed 346 runs losing only three wickets off their stipulated 50 overs and then restricted Mumbai at 302 at the Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground.

Opting to bat first, Devdhar and Saurabh Wakaskar laid a solid foundation, adding 152 runs for the opening wicket before the latter got out after making 63 runs.

Devdhar, who completed his century off 109 balls, then added another 106 runs with Adiya Waghmode (42). The opener was finally dismissed after making 148. He faced 137 balls and hit 19 fours and a six during his stay at the crease.

Baroda captain Yusuf Pathan hit a quickfire 53 that came off 34 runs with 3 fours and four sixes.

For Mumbai, pacer Shardul Thakur took two wickets conceding 59 runs.

Chasing a stiff target of 347, Mumbai were restricted at 302 for 9. Shoeb Shaikh and Sushant Marathe gave a flying start, adding 98 runs in less than 18 overs for the visitors.

Middle-order batsmen Bravish Shetty (22), Surya Kumar Yadav (33) and Sujit Nayak (23) started well but failed to come up with big knocks. Abhishek Nayar was unbeaten on 65.

For Baroda, left-arm medium pacer Irfan took three wickets for 45 runs. He was well supported by Ketan Panchal and Murtuza Vahora, who picked up two wickets each.

Brief scores:

Baroda 346 for 3 (Kedar Devdhar 148, Saurabh Wakaskar 63, Yusuf Pathan not out 53; Shardul Thakur 2 for 59) beat Mumbai 302 for 9 (Sushant Marathe 77, Abhishek Nayar not out 65; Irfan Pathan 3 for 45, Ketan Panchal 2 for 51) by 44 runs
