Indore: Nov 29, 2011

Medium pacer Ishwar Pandey took a sensational six-wicket haul as Madhya Pradesh bundled out Gujarat for a paltry 130 before ending the day one at 51 for two in their Ranji Trophy Elite Group B match on Tuesday.

Pandey took six wickets for 31 runs after Madhya Pradesh decided to bowl at Emerald High School Ground to take honours on the first day of the match.

Fast bowler TP Sudhindra (3 for 33) also impressed by taking three wickets.

Gujarat had actually made a decent start as openers Avi Barot and Priaynk Panchal added 44 runs for the first wicket but once Sudhindra dismissed Barot, Gujarat innings fell apart.

Sudhindra scalped both the openers and Pandey polished off the middle and lower order.

Bhavik Thaker was the highest scorer for the Gujarat with his 38 run-knock, coming off 108 balls.

Pandey dismissed skipper Niraj Patel (9), P Parmar (7), J Karia (17), S Yadav (7), M Patel (3) and F Dudhat (2).

Madhya Pradesh’s start was disastrous as they lost opener Jalaj Saxena in the very first over and were reduced to 11 for two when other opener Naman Ojha also departed.

Mohnish Mishra (27) and Devendra Bundela (19) stabilised the innings by adding 40 runs for the undefeated third wicket.
