Managing to bowl Madhya Pradesh out for 229, Rajasthan then proceeded inexorably towards the victory target, winning the Ranji Trophy Central Zone league match by three wickets on the final day.

Starting from a good position of 180/3, Madhya Pradesh collapsed dramatically, with only S Abbas Ali making a fifty. The remaining seven wickets fell for 49 runs, leaving Rajasthan a target of 173.

The home side started off solidly, putting up a 40-run opening partnership. Manish Majithia, however, returned figures of 19-1-57-4, wrecking the middle order with some fine bowling.

Support for him at the other end was missing, and the rival batsmen took advantage of this; Gagan Khoda, batting for once at number five, made an unbeaten 39, seeing his side to victory with three wickets to spare.

Rajasthan thus picks up eight points from this match, while Madhya Pradesh garners none.
