Saurashtra overpower Haryana in three-day finish

Saurashtra 278 (Mankad 68, Hooda 6-61) beat Haryana 107 (Sanandia 4-44, Kushang 3-21, Unadkat 3-35) and 140 (Bishnoi 56, Jani 2-12) by an innings and 31 runs

Haryana collpased to 140 all out on the third day in Lahli as a Cheteshwar Pujara-led Saurashtra enjoyed the unusual feeling of winning by an innings despite making less than 300 when they’d batted. The traditionally seamer-friendly conditions were on show again as Jaydev Unadkat and Chirag Jani shared the four Haryana wickets left standing and sealed Saurashtra’s victory before lunch.

Forced to follow on after being bundled out for 107 in their first innings, Haryana’s batsmen struggled once again, except Chaitanya Bishnoi – who made 56. Deepak Punia‘s resistance was snipped at 34, leaving Haryana reeling at 136 for 9. Three balls later, they were all out.
