Offie Malolan snares 6 as Tamil Nadu crush Baroda

Chennai: Off-spinner Malolan Rangarajan took six wickets for 46 runs as Tamil Nadu got the better of Baroda by nine wickets and earned six points on the fourth and final day of their Ranji Trophy Group B match, here, on Monday.

After Rangarajan (6/46) and Aushik Srinivas (3/23) shared nine wickets between them to bundle out Baroda for a mere 129 in their second innings, Tamil Nadu were required to chase down just 59 runs for victory, which they achieved comfortably by losing just one wicket.

In Rohtak, Karnataka batsmen made heavy weather of small run-chase before registering a three-wicket win over Haryana in their Group A match.

Karnataka were made to toil hard by Haryana pacer Harshal Patel, who snared his second five-for of the match, to reach the 97-run target at Bansi Lal Cricket Stadium. Allrounder Stuart Binny (31 off 30 balls) played a cameo and held one end up to take his side home.

In Gwalior, Rajasthan took just 10 overs to register a seven-wicket win over Madhya Pradesh. Overnight 77 for three in a chase of 148, Rajasthan relied on Robin Bist (63 not out) and Ashok Menaria (49 not out) to romp home on the fourth and final day of the match.
