It's two in a row for Vidharbha
Monday, January 5 2004 20:16 Hrs (IST)

Jaipur:Unheralded Vidharbha defeated former Ranji champions Railways in a nail-biting encounter while Uttar Pradesh defeated Rajasthan in the Central Zone Ranji Trophy Limited Overs league matches in Jaipur on Monday.

Helped by a four-wicket haul by Sandeep Singh, Vidharbha restricted the railmen to a modest 164 and then recovered well from some early setbacks to win with five balls to spare.

Sandeep Singh (4/20) wrecked the fancied Railway batting lineup before middle-order batsman Yere Gaud (45) and Shreyas Khanolkar (42) gave their total some respectability. Umesh Patil (2/29) gave good support to Sandeep Singh.

Vidharbha also received some early jolts during their chase but Amit Deshpande (42) and M Acharya (39 no) ensured a memorable victory for their side.

In another encounter, Uttar Pradesh had no problem in overcoming the 212 run target set by the hosts, reaching the mark in 48.4 overs.
