Mumbai: Mar 30, 2014

Skipper Parthiv Patel led from the front with a 53-ball 70 as Gujarat thrashed Maharashtra by 62 runs in a Twenty20 zonal league (west zone) match at the Mumbai Cricket Association’s (MCA) Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) Ground on Sunday.

Put into bat, Gujarat posted 171 for six with Patel scoring the runs at a brisk pace. The wicketkeeper-batsman struck two sixes and six fours in his knock and was well supported by Venugopal Rao, who made a 27-ball 47.

The duo stitched a partnership of 80 runs for the third wicket to help their side post a big total.

Chasing a stiff target of 172, Maharashtra were bundled out for just 109 with almost three overs left.

Maharashtra got off to the worst possible start as they lost three wickets in the second over.

Jasprit Bumrah castled India under-19 skipper Vijay Zol and Rahul Tripathi, while Harshad Khadiwale was run out in the same over and Maharashtra found themselves at three for 3.

Maharashtra never recovered from the early jolt and were further reduced to 59 for 7.

Srikanth Mundhe made a breezy 42 off 26 balls to steer his team closer to the three digit mark. Maharashtra skipper Kedar Jadhav was the other main contributor for the team with a 22.

For Gujarat, Bumrah, Akshar Patel and Rohit Dahiya picked up two wickets each.

Brief Scores:

Gujarat: 171 for 6 (Parthiv Patel 70, Venugopal Rao 47; Domnick Muthuswami 3 for 33) beat Maharashtra 109 all out (Shrikant Mundhe 42, Kedar Jadhav 22; Jasprit Bumrah 2 for 10, Rohit Dahiya 2 for 20, Akshar Patel 2 for 15) by 62 runs.
