Jaipur: Former Gujarat batter Samit Gohel hammered 135 (128 balls, 10 fours, five sixes) to star in Tripura’s comprehensive 210-run win over Arunachal Pradesh in a Vijay Hazare Trophy Plate Group match here on Wednesday.

Batting first, Tripura amassed 336 for 4 in 50 overs with Gohel, captain K B Pawan (64) and Rajat Dey (44 not out) adding substance to the total.

Gohel and Pawan added 133 runs for the third wicket in quick time to put Tripura on the road to a big total. After their big stand, Dey and Manisankar Murasingh (34 not out, 11 balls, 2X4, 3X6) added 41 runs in just 15 deliveries to swell the total.

Chasing 337 for a win, Arunachal were never in the hunt and kept losing wickets at regular intervals to be bundled out for 126 in the 40th over.

Former Tamil Nadu spinner Rahil Shah did the bulk of the damage, scalping four wickets conceding just 16 run in 10 overs while Ajoy Sarkar took 3 for 15.

In another match, captain Uday Kaul smashed an unbeaten 121 to help Mizoram romp to a seven-wicket win over Bihar.
