Put in to bat by Baroda, Uttar Pradesh lost three batsmen for less than 100 runs on the board. Although Akshdeep Nath (45) and Rinku Singh (40) chipped in with important contributions, UP kept losing wickets at regular intervals to be reeling at 207 for seven at one stage.

Kuldeep’s innings came off 136 deliveries with four hits to the fence, while Saurabh took 113 balls for his knock that was studded with 12 boundaries. For Baroda, Babashafi Pathan (3/84) was the most impressive bowler. Sagar Mangalorkar (2/64) and Rishi Arothe (2/68) took two wickets each.
