Skipper Yuvraj Singh notched up a fine double century as Punjab surpassed Baroda’s huge first-innings total with ease to collect three points from their Group A Ranji Trophy cricket match here today.

Punjab secured three points, as against Baroda’s one, on the basis of taking the first-innings lead at the Feroz Shah Kotla on the fourth and final day of the high-scoring game.

Owing to the out-of-favour India all-rounder Yuvraj’s 260, his second century of the season, and opener Manan Vohra’s 224, Punjab piled up a mammoth 670 before being bowled out.

Even as the match headed for a draw, Baroda batted a second time and scored 37 for no loss in 14 overs before it was called off.

For Baroda, left-arm spinner Swapnil Singh picked up 4/169 bowling 51 overs, while off-spinner Vishnu Solanki took 3/151, including the wicket of Yuvraj.

During their stay in the middle, Yuvraj and Vohra added 343 runs for the third wicket at nearly fours runs an over.

The left-handed Yuvraj then quickly put on 116 runs for the fourth wicket with Gurkeerat Singh (55) to help Punjab go past Baroda’s first-innings total of 529 all out and pave the way for securing three points.

Punjab were overnight 452/2 with Vohra and Yuvraj batting on 201 and 179 respectively.

While Yuvraj slammed 26 boundaries and four sixes during his fluent knock that came off 370 balls, Vohra found the fence 20 times and cleared it twice in his 386-ball innings.

Points:

Punjab 3 points, Baroda 1 point.
