MP bowlers led by Agarwal (5/38) then wreaked havoc as they bundled out their opponents for a paltry 137 in their second essay to register a convincing win.

The Chandrakant Pandit-coached side had trounced Gujarat in their lung-opener in an emphatic fashion.

Meghalaya started on their overnight score of 16/0 on the third day and needed to bat two days to salvage a draw, but none from their line-up, barring skipper Punit Bisht (38; 7×4), showed resistance as MP bowlers kept striking at regular intervals at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium C.

Agarwal was the more lethal one and his wickets included openers Wallam Kynshi (12), Kishan Lyngdoh (6), one-down batter Chirag Khurana (26), Larry Sangma (4) and D Ravi Teja (10).

Meghalaya’s innings never got going and they were tottering at 62/5 at one stage.

Skipper Bisht, with his 64-ball 38, only delayed the inevitable. But once in form left-arm orthodox spinner Kumar Kartikeya (3/18) dismissed him, it was just a matter of time.

Kartikeya and pacer Gaurav Yadav (2/39), who had claimed a fifer in the first essay, then ripped apart the tail to complete MP’s sheer domination.
