Railways new ball bowlers Anureet Singh and Amit Mishra were in a leather hunt as they bundled out former Ranji Champions Rajastan for a just 35 in their Central Zone Vijay Hazare trophy encounter at the Vidharbha Cricket Associaton stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur.

Both the bowlers took five wickets apiece as Anureet and Amit finished with figures of 5-16 and 5-18 respectively. Rajasthan innings folded in the 16th over of the innings. Only ne of the Rajasthan batsman managed to reach the double figures. Arjit Gupta was the highest scorer for Rajasthan with an unbeaten 13 and the next highest for them is less than half of Arjit’s score, 6.

Railways chased the target in just 5.3 overs and cruised to a massive 9 wicket victory. Asad Pathan scored a 13 ball 20 to steer Railways home. With this huge victory, Railways are favourites to book a spot in the Vijay Hazare tropy quarters as the winners from Central Zone. This might be the lowest score in a List A game in India.
