RP Singh's behaviour was perhaps the only sour point for Pathiv Patel's side, which put on a clinical display in the high-profile final.
Parthiv Patel and RP Singh continued Gujarat's winning streak as they continued their fine run in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
RP Singh picked up five for 33 in the second innings to guide Gujarat to a 153-run victory over Madhya Pradesh in their Ranji Trophy clash.
Gujarat bowlers picked 16 wickets on the third day as the defeated Railways by an innings and 36 runs.
RP Singh welcomes the lively Indian pitches which have yielded result-oriented Ranji Trophy matches of late.
The injury-prone former India pacer, RP Singh, might have taken just 16 wickets from five Ranji Trophy matches in the ongoing season, but has been instrumental in Uttar Pradesh's two outright wins to lead group B as they are almost certain to make the last eight.
Led by Parvinder Awana (5/97), Delhi bowled out Odisha for 379, 63 runs behind their first innings total of 442.
In reply, Uttar Pradesh reached 86 for three in 38 overs, needing another 79 runs to surpass Services' first innings total but the hosts will be aiming for an outright victory.
The former West Indies legend observes that home advantage is not about changing nature of tracks but in home support. The former only spoils cricket, he says.
Chasing 191 for victory, no one gave Punjab any chance when they were reduced to 51/3. But, David Miller smashed an unbeaten 101 of 38 balls to take Punjab home with 6 wickets and 2 overs to spare.
