Kolkata/Jaipur: Bengal’s hopes of moving into the next round of Vijay Hazare Trophy were heavily dented when Saurashtra beat the hosts by 149 runs in the Group E fixture here at the Jadavpur University Second Campus ground on Thursday.

Put into bat, Saurashtra put up a massive 324 for nine on a placid wicket. In reply, Bengal innings folded up for 175 in just 37 overs.

For the visitors, opener Avi Barot gave the Saurashtra innings the necessary boost with a 90-ball 83 studded with 8 hits to the fences. Thereafter middle-order batsman Prerak Mankad scored a run-a-ball 59, while Arpit Vasavada plundered 91 off just 59 deliveries to prop up the Saurashtra innings.

None of the Bengal batsmen could put any resistance before a disciplined bowling attack from Saurashtra. They capitulated before some quality attack led by skipper Jaydev Unadkat.

Meanwhile, in Jaipur, India Test-discard Prithvi Shaw hit a magnificent, unbeaten 227 to help Mumbai thrash Puducherry by 233 runs in a Vijay Hazare Trophy clash.

Shaw converted his fifth List A ton into an undefeated 227 as Mumbai amassed 457 for 4 in the Group D fixture.

The total is now the fourth-highest List A score, just short of India A’s 458 for 4 against Leicester back in 2018. Interestingly, Shaw featured in that game also and scored 132 during the course of a 221-run opening partnership with Mayank Agarwal.

The feat on Thursday made Shaw the eighth Indian after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma (three double-hundreds), Karn Kaushal, Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal to hit a List A double ton.

Brief scores: Saurashtra 324/9 (Arpit Vasavada 91, Avi Barot 83, Prerak Mankad 59; Ishan Porel 3/71) beat Bengal 175 (Abhimanyu Easwaran 44; Jaydev Unadkat 3/46) by 149 runs; Mumbai 457/4 (Prithvi Shaw 227*, Suryakumar Yadav 133; Pankaj Singh 2/75) beat Puducherry 224 in 38.1 overs (Damodaran Rohit 63; Prashant Solanki 5/48) by 233 runs.
