Services bundled out for a paltry 31

Vadodara: Pacer Munaf Patel’s six-wicket haul helped Baroda humiliate Services in an emphatic innings and 147 runs win after the visiting side was sent packing for just 31 in their second essay on Day III in their Ranji Trophy Group B encounter here on Monday.

Responding to Baroda’s first innings total of 369 after being bowled out for 191 in their own first essay, Services were demolished by the pace combination of Munaf and Gagandeep Singh, who took four in this innings.

Services, in contrast, are bottom of the heap after two losses and four draws.

In Hubli, a rare century by skipper R Vinay Kumar followed by purposeful bowling led by Abhimanyu Mithun had Karnataka on the verge of victory over Punjab.

Mithun captured three for 26 from 11 overs, as Punjab in pursuit of 331 for avoiding an innings defeat, slumped to 156 for five.

Gurkeerat Singh Mann was the only Punjab batsman who could negotiate the Karnataka bowlers, smashing the top score so far of 56 not out.
