Ranji Trophy: Super Saxena spins MP to nine-wicket win over Railways

Gwalior: Spinner Jajaj Saxena added eight more wickets to his first-innings effort for a match haul of a staggering 16 scalps, as Madhya Pradesh registered a convincing nine-wicket victory over Railways in a Ranji Trophy match here on Monday.

The 29-year-old off-spinner Jalaj returned impressive figures of 8/58 to bundle out Railways for 131 in 51.1 overs at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium.

Resuming at overnight score of 42/1, Railways lost nine wickets for just 89 runs, and had no answer to the questions posed by Jalaj on the third day of the Group B game.

Jalaj had picked up 8/96 in the first innings, helping his team bowl out Railways for 258 runs.

Madhya Pradesh rode on Rajat Patidat's 113 to eke out a narrow 20-run first-innings lead.

Jalaj then, once again, spun a web around the Railways batsmen to fashion a comfortable win for the hosts and give them full points.
