New Delhi: Gujarat scored a comprehensive innings victory over hapless Railways as their bowlers grabbed 16 wickets on the third day of their Ranji Trophy cricket match here.
Railways resumed the day on their overnight 168/4 and they folded their first innings at 234, in reply to Gujarat's 387. R P Singh and Jasprit Bumrah took four wickets apiece and Gujarat asked Railways to follow-on at the Karnail Singh Stadium.
The batting slide began last evening when three Railways batsmen were shot out with the score on 168. The woeful form continued this morning as Prashant Awasti and Mahesh Rawat were dismissed between the 53rd and 55th overs.
That meant Railways went from 168 for 1 to 168 for 6.
In their second innings, Railways did even worse as none of their batsmen could reach 30. They were shot out for 117 in no time in just 39.4 overs to lose the match by an innings and 36 runs.
Gujarat bowlers shared the spoils in Railways second innings. Bumrah and Mehul Patel grabbed two wickets apiece while R P Singh and Rush Kalaria got two each.
Gujarat collected seven points from the win while Railways got none.
Gujarat: 387 (Priyank Panchal 141, Rush Kalaria 80, Parthiv Patel 58, Anureet Singh 4/91) beat Railways 234 (Saurabh Wakaskar 93; RP Singh 4/55, Jasprit Bumrah 4/47) and 117 (Arindam Gohsh 25; Mehul Patel 3/25, Bumrah 3/37).
