Tamil Nadu defeated Chandigarh an innings and 293-run win as Railways beat Gujarat by 184 runs and Punjab triumphed over Goa by 6 wickets in the Ranji Trophy.

Left-arm spinner Sai Kishore ran through the Chandigarh batting order with a superb five-wicket haul as Tamil Nadu recorded an innings and 293-run win in their Ranji Trophy Group C match on Sunday.

With Tamil Nadu taking a massive 499-run lead, Chandigarh, who were bowled out for 111 in their first innings, needed a spectacular effort with the bat but it was not to be as they were dismissed for 206 in 71 overs.

Two left-arm spinners — Kishore (5/80) and Ajith Ram (3/42) — trapped the batters in their web of spin to complement their batting colleagues, who had posted a mammoth 610 for four in their first innings.

Ankit Kaushik hit 8 fours in his fighting 85-ball 50 but he was left stranded with wickets falling at regular intervals at the SNR College Cricket Ground.

With two wins and a draw, Tamil Nadu continued their sensational run, grabbing six points to top the group standing with 15 points. TN had defeated Railways by an innings and 129 runs in their previous match.

N Jagadeesan was adjudged the Player of the Match for his sensational 321 in the first innings.

Starting day three at 110 for 2, Railways were all out for 228 in 61.5 overs in their second innings to set Gujarat a target of 344.

Manan Hingrajia top-scored with a 52-run knock with the help of seven boundaries, but he didn’t get any support from the other batters, as they crumbled against a collective bowling effort by Railways.
