Mumbai beat Rajasthan in Ranji One-dayer
Friday, February 6 2004 10:59 Hrs (IST)

Kolkata:Vinit Indulkar and Nisit Shetty struck useful half-centuries to guide Mumbai to a five wicket win over Rajasthan in the Ranji Trophy One-day cricket tournament final round in Kolkata.

Indulkar (77 not out) and Shetty (53) stitched together a 107 run partnership for the fourth-wicket as Mumbai reached the winning target of 237 for five in 48 overs after Rajasthan were all out for 236 at the Jadavpur University campus stadium.

Indulkar, who completed his 50 in 99 minutes of 56 balls, played responsibly, to frustrate the Rajasthan bowlers on a wicket, which gave some assistance to the spinners.

Mumbai got an early jolt when opener Vinayak Mane (4) returned cheaply, but Robin Morris (32) and Vinod Kambli (32) added 56 runs for the second-wicket to retrieve the situation.

But Mumbai then lost two quick wickets to become 77 for three as both Morris and Kambli got out, before Indulkar and Shetty took charge.

In the morning, opting to bat first on winning the toss, Rajasthan began well, thanks to a 85 run opening wicket stand between skipper Gagan Khoda (82) and Dishant Yagnik (50). Yagnik was the first to go, when he was adjudged leg-before to pacer Munaf Patel, but Khoda played a blazing knock, tearing the Mumbai attack to shreds. However, none of the other willowers succeeded in getting decent scores.
