Chennai: Tamil Nadu took less than 10 overs to complete the formalities and notch up an emphatic 104-run win over Maharashtra on the fourth and concluding day of their Group B Ranji Trophy match here on Tuesday.

Having reduced Maharashtra to 75 for eight at stumps yesterday after setting a target of 193, the home team wrapped up the proceedings in just 53 deliveries on Tuesday.

For the visitors, Ankit Bawne was the top-scorer with an unbeaten 24 that came off 81 deliveries and included a couple of boundaries.

Bawne, in fact, was the lone bright spot in an otherwise listless batting display by Maharashtra against a disciplined bowling performance by the hosts.

The two wickets to fall this morning were Akshay Darekar (3) and Samad Fallah (5).

Malolan Rangarajan, who got a half century in the first innings besides seven wickets in the game, was adjudged man of the match for his fine all-round display.

With this win, Tamil Nadu tally eight points from three matches, while Maharashtra remain at one point from two games.

Brief scores: Tamil Nadu: 276 and 149 II Maharashtra: 233 and 88 all out in 46.5 overs (Ankit Bawne 24, R Aushik Srinivas 3/15, M Rangarajan 3/34).
