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 its second essay on day three in their Ranji Trophy Group B encounter on Monday in Vadodara.
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. Baroda, who pocketed the bonus point as well to take a total of seven from this match, now have 14 points overall from two wins and three losses. Services, in contrast, are bottom of the heap after two losses and four draws.
Overnight on 2/1, Services produced a shocking batting performance as half of their line-up departed without disturbing the scorecard. Vishnu Tiwari was the lone batsman to touch the double-digit mark with his 14.
In fact, the innings extras of 7 were the next big contributors to the Services' embarrassing scoreline. Munaf was the star of the show for Baroda with a match haul of 10 wickets.
His figures this innings read an enviable 6 for 13 from 10 overs, four of them maiden.
Brief Scores: Baroda: 369 Services: 191 and 31 in 20 overs (Munaf Patel 6/13, Gagandeep Singh 4/11)
