The bowler on the receiving end was Tilak Raj. Shastri's slam-bang innings had come a week after his marathon century against England at Calcutta. As far as the match is concerned, it was a drab draw. In the first innings Bombay scored 371 runs, with G Parkar making 170. In reply Baroda made 330 runs.
Bombay then took charge and scored a mammoth 457 runs in the third innings. Baroda just hung on, as when the match finished, they were 81/7, chasing a target of 499.
