Hyderabad have pulled off a 10-wicket in over Services on the final day of the Ranji Trophy 2016-17 Round 6 at Bandra-Kurla Complex. Due to this 10-wicket win, Hyderabad have now earned a bonus point. Services began the day on 360 for 9 in their first innings, still trailing Hyderabad by 220 runs. They could not add more to their total today and therefore conceded a huge 220-run first innings lead. Hyderabad enforced the follow-on and all services had to do was to bat one full day and save the match. They could not do that as Hyderabad fast bowlers Ravi Kiran and Mohammad Siraj shared seven wickets between them to ensure Services are bowled out for 239, setting Hyderabad a 20-run target.

Hyderabad took just 29 deliveries to wrap up this match to register a morale boosting win for them. Hyderabad had shattered a couple of records in the first innings to ensure that they put on a mammoth 580 for 9 on the board. Bavanaka Sandeep scored an unbeaten 203 and Chama Milind not only scored his maiden First-Class ton, he also was the first ever Hyderabad batsman to achieve that feat coming in at No. 9. Sandeep and Milind put on 267 runs for the eighth wicket to put Hyderabad in a commanding position.

With this win, Hyderabad now have two wins in five matches and will look to build on that. Services on the other hand are yet to register a win in this edition, not having won a single match out of the six they have played.
