They are still trailing by 132 runs but they showed a lot of stomach for fight after being bowled out for 85 yesterday.<br /> <br /> Opener <a href="/tags/Faiz-Fazal/post" target="_blank">Faiz Fazal</a> (58) and <a href="/tags/Amol-Ubarhande/post" target="_blank">Amol Ubarhande</a> (6) were at the crease for the hosts, which lost <a href="/tags/Akshay-Kolhar/post" target="_blank">Akshay Kolhar </a>(28).<br /> <br /> Fazal and Ubarhande shared a sedate 59-run stand for the first wicket in 26 overs. It ended when Ubarhande was scalped by off-spinner Jesal Karia.<br /> <br /> Earlier, Gujarat began the day at a comfortable 153 for three with skipper <a href="/tags/Parthiv-Patel/post" target="_blank">Parthiv Patel</a> and Mehul Patel resuming the innings.<br /> <br /> Vidarbha struck early as <a href="/tags/Sadeep-Singh/post" target="_blank">Sadeep Singh</a> dismissed Mehul (1). Parthiv resisted the determined home attack by making a quick-fire 65 off 69 but other batsmen let down the side.<br /> <br /> Gujarat could have built a bigger lead but Vidarbha spoilt their plans. Had it not been for some superb batting by the lower-order, the visitors would not have cross the 300-run mark.<br /> <br /> After losing Mehul, Parthiv became a victim of <a href="/tags/Shrikant-Wagh/post" target="_blank">Shrikant Wagh</a>, who was the most successful Vidarbha bowler with four wickets haul.<br /> <br /> <a href="/tags/Y-Venugopal-Rao/post" target="_blank">Y Venugopal Rao</a> (16) and Bargav Meria (5) and Karia (0) did not last long, leaving Gujarat reeling at 214 for eight.<br /> <br /> <a href="/tags/Rakesh-Dhruv/post" target="_blank">Rakesh Dhruv</a> (22) and Rush Kalaria (39) propped up Gujarat with their 65-run stand for the eighth wicket.<br /> <br /> <strong>Brief scores:<br /> <br /> Vidarbha</strong>: 85 and 87 for 1 (F Fazal 48*; J Karia 1 for 5) trail <strong>Gujarat</strong> 304 (Parthiv Patel 65, R Dhruv 22, R Kalalia 39; S Wagh 4 for 71) by 212 runs.
