In reply to Vidarbha’s massive first innings score of 504, Haryana were earlier bundled out for 241 and were subsequently asked to follow on. Resuming on 66 for two in their second innings while following on, Haryana started off well with overnight batsmen Mohit Hooda and Rohit Sharma playing responsible knocks.

While Hooda contributed with 38, Rohit scored his maiden first-class century but lack of support from the middle and lower order left the team in tatters. Rohit was the ninth batsman to be dismissed after a fine 107 off 241 deliveries that included 10 fours. In the end, Haryana were bowled out for 232.

Jangid and Sarwate had earlier hit a century each down the order as Vidarbha piled on a massive 504 for 7 declared in their first innings on the second day of the game. The duo stitched 212 runs for the seventh wicket to demoralise the Haryana bowlers after the home side resumed from their overnight score of 284 for 6.

Vidarbha 504 for seven decl. (Faiz Fazal 126, Ravi Jangid 110, Aditya Sarwate 103*; Harshal Patel 2 for 70) beat Haryana 241 & 232 (Rohit Sharma 107; Ravi Jangid 7 for 59) by an innings and 31 runs.
