Indore, Feb 15, 2013, PTI

Pacers Anand Rajan and Ishwar Pandey shared six wickets between them as Madhya Pradesh registered a comfortable five-wicket win over Uttar Pradesh in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (Central Zone) match, here on Friday.

Opting to field, Madhya Pradesh restricted Uttar Pradesh to 205 for nine in their alloted 50 overs, and then chased down the target in just 39.5 overs at Holkar Cricket Stadium.

Rajan picked up four for 51 while Ishwar returned with figures of two for 36.
Madhya Pradesh’s middle-order fired in unison as Jatin Saxena top-scored with a knock of 45 while skipper Udit Birla made 44.

Apart from the duo, Harpreet Singh played a quick-fire unbeaten knock of 41 off 28 balls, laced with five fours and one six, while Rameez Khan contributed 36.
For the visitors, Imitiaz Ahmed picked up four for 65 but did not find much support from the other bowlers.

Earlier, Uttar Pradesh relied on the experience of Mohammad Kaif (55) and skipper Suresh Raina (36) to cross the 200-run mark.

While Kaif struck three fours and a six in his 73-ball stay at the crease, Raina had six hits to the fence.
