Mumbai cruises into semifinals

MUMBAI, DEC. 16. Mumbai skipper and leg-spinner Sairaj Bahutule (five for 52) bowled his team to an innings and 64-run victory over Gujarat on the fourth and final day of the Ranji Trophy Elite Group `A' match here on Thursday. The host gained five points from the win for a total of 17 points and made it to the semifinals.

The defending champion, who had taken a massive 235-run first innings lead on Wednesday, bowled out Gujarat for a paltry 171 runs off 60.2 overs in just 106 minutes of play today.

Needing 133 runs to make the host bat again, Gujarat, which was without the services of Parthiv Patel and skipper Mukund Parmar (both nursing injuries), buckled under some sustained bowling by Bahutule and off-spinner Ramesh Powar (two for 49).
