The difference in the quality of two teams was crystal clear in this encounter. Gujarat look a serious unit and they have made it to the semis of Ranji Trophy for the third time in their history. They will be facing one between Saurashtra and Andhra in the semis. And it wouldn't be an easy task for the opposition to get the better of this Gujarat unit which is excelling in all departments. That's it from this game, join us for the semi-finals which starts on 29th february. Goodbye and take care!

16:50 Local Time, 11:20 GMT, 16:50 IST: A comprehensive victory for Gujarat. They looked like the superior team on paper and they have displayed that over the course of the last four days. Hundreds from skipper Parthiv Patel and Roosh Kalaria allowed Gujarat to post a massive score of 602 on the board in the first innings. They continued the domination with the ball and the Goa batsmen couldn't combat the firepower in their bowling line-up. They were bundled out for just 173 in the first innings. Gujarat were kind enough not to enforce the follow-on and by adding 199 runs in their second innings, they set up a huge target of 629 runs. The batting effort of Goa was dismal again in the second innings. They could only muster 164 runs and ended up losing the game by a significant margin of 464 runs. It was a complete team performance by Gujarat but Roosh Kalaria was adjudged Man of the match for his brilliant all-round performance.
