Photo source: DNA[/caption] <p></p> <p></p><b>Chennai:</b> <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Siddesh-Lad">Siddesh Lad</a> starred in Mumbai's 41-run win over Gujarat today while defending champions Tamil Nadu crashed to a six-wicket defeat to Goa in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Group 'C' League. Lad hit 11 fours and four sixers in his 125-ball 129 to power Mumbai to 317 for 8 in 50 overs. Gujarat didn't seem in the hunt despite captain Priyank Panchal's 89 and was bowled out for 276 in 47.4 overs to hand Mumbai a second straight win. <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu lost six wickets for 44 runs to collapse to 210 all out before Swapnil Asnodkar's 103 took Goa home after a mid-innings wobble. The Mumbai-Gujarat match saw Lad come up with a dominant display and was involved in two big partnerships, one with opener Akhil Herwadkar (37) for 88 runs and then with captain Aditya Tare (51) which yielded 127 runs. <p></p> <p></p>In reply, Gujarat appeared to be behind on the required run-rate despite Panchal's century partnership with Bhargav Merai (64), who scored a ton against Tamil Nadu yesterday. At M A Chidambaram stadium, Tamil Nadu couldn't build on a 89-run opening wicket partnership between India Test opener <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/murali-vijay">Murali Vijay</a> (51, 69 balls, 6X4, 1X6) and M Kaushik Gandhi (43) in the face of disciplined bowling and sharp fielding by Goa to be bowled out in 48.5 overs. B Aparajith was the other major contributor with a patient knock of 52. <p></p> <p></p>Asnodkar, who made waves with Rajasthan Royals in the inaugural IPL, led Goa's chase with a well-compiled ton (103). The visiting team scrambled home after a stutter towards the end. India Test spinner Ravichandran Ashwin kept things tight and took 2 for 30 as the Goa batsmen played him with caution. <p></p> <p></p>In the other game of the day, Andhra Pradesh notched up a second win on the trot, beating Madhya Pradesh by six wickets with medium-pacer P Girinath Reddy's six-wicket haul and G Hanuma Vihari (61 not out) being the stars. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief scores: </strong> <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu 210 in 48.5 overs (M Kaushik Gandhi 43, M Vijay 51, B Aparajith 52 (70b, 2x4), Darshan Misal 3 for 42, Srinivas Fadte 3 for 51) lost to Goa 211 for 6 in 46.2 overs (Swapnil Asnodkar 103 (112b, 9x4, 2x6), Sagun Kamat 38 (76b, 4x4), R Ashwin 2 for 30). Points: Goa: 4; Tamil Nadu: 0. <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai 317 for 8 in 50 overs (Akhil Herwadkar 37, Siddhesh Lad 129 (125b, 11x4, 4x6), Aditya Tare 51 (56b, 6x4s), Ishwar Chaudhary 3 for 46) beat Gujarat 276 in 47.4 overs (Priyank Panchal 89 (96b, 7x4, 2x6), Bhargav Merai 64 (63b, 3x4), Rohit Dahiya 33, Roystan Dias 4 for 64). Points: Mumbai: 4; Gujarat: 0. <p></p> <p></p>Madhya Pradesh 184 in 44.2 overs (Rajat Patidar 34, Harpreet Singh Bhatia 31, Anshul Tripathi 39, Sohraab Dhaliwal 28, P Girinath Reddy 6 for 24) lost to Andhra 190 for 4 in 38.5 overs (Ashwin Hebbar 42, G Hanuma Vihari 61 (60b, 9x4), Ricky Bhui 32 n.o, D B Ravi Teja 33 n.o).
