Spinners shine in Mumbai's win over Baroda

Pune: Left-arm spinners Iqbal Abdulla and Ankeet Chavan took three each as Ranji champions Mumbai defeated Baroda by 17 runs in their limited-overs Vijay Hazare Trophy (West Zone) match here Thursday.

Sent into bat, Mumbai were all out for 236 in 49.5 overs, and then restricted Baroda to 219 for 9 at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.

Abdulla picked up 3 for 44 while Chavan returned figures of 3 for 45. There were two wickets for skipper Ajit Agarkar.

Ambati Rayudu top-scored for Baroda with a knock of 52 while Aditya Waghmode made 42.

Despite getting a decent start with the openers - Saurabh Wakaskar (31) and Aditya Reddy (38) - putting on 61 runs, Baroda failed to chase down the target.

After Rayudu's dismissal to Abdulla, none of the Baroda could contribute.

Earlier, Mumbai relied on Shoaibh Shaikh (51) and the experienced Wasim Jaffer (42) to give them a platform.

Before his effort with ball, Abdulla contributed with the bat as well, scoring an invaluable 39-ball 43 and giving his team's total a semblance of respectability.

Abdulla struck two fours and as many sixes during his breezy knock, which proved to be the difference eventually.
