Ranji Trophy: Quick recap and summary of the match between Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh

Here is the key highlight of the Ranji Trophy Game.

The match between Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh was played at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.

Opting to bowl first, Gujarat sealed Madhya Pradesh’s innings in 274 runs as Arzan Nagwaswalla took a five-fer against Madhya Pradesh (first innings).

Gujarat scored 331 runs as Ishwar Pandey took a five-wicket haul, along with Gaurav Yadav’s 4-wicket haul restricted Gujarat from scoring more runs.

Shubham Sharma’s ton helped Madhy Pradesh to score leading runs in their second innings. Rajat Patidar knocked classical half-century in both the innings of Madhya Pradesh.

Rajat Patidar was blasting out-of-the-park strokes against Arzan Nagwaswalla in the Gujarat-Madhya Pradesh match.

Arzan altered his game strategy and made his leg-side fielding more defensive, which paid off when Rajat Patidar’s poor shot gave Arzan a crucial wicket.

Arzan’s ferocious celebration resulted in an ugly quarrel between the batter and the bowler, with Arzan yelling obscenities at Rajat Patidar, to which Rajat responded with a caustic retort. After the umpire and on-field captain Priyan Panchal interfered, everything was forced to settle down.

Rajat made a fantastic half-century but was caught trying to hit another six in Arzan’s over after previously hitting two sixes.

Gujarat were bowled out for 88 runs as Kumar Kartikeya took a five-wicket haul in the final innings and Madhya Pradesh won the game by 106 runs.
