Chasing 196 for a win at the KSCA Cricket (3) Ground, Gujarat rode on opener Parthiv's 57 to achieve the target in 48.1 overs.
Gujarat though did see wickets tumble as left-arm medium Ravikumar Thakur and off-spinner Akshay Wakhare bagged three wickets each, but Axar made sure that he stays firm with Harshal Patel (15 not out) to ensure victory.
Earlier electing to bat, Vidarbha started off well with fifties from opener Faiz Fazal (52) and Jitesh Sharma (51) but soon their innings ran into rough weather. After the 96-run opening stand, one-down Ganesh Satish also contributed with a useful 47 but the rest of the batting folded like a pack of cards.
Sharing the new ball with Rush Kalaria, Jusprit Bumrah bagged four wickets, while off-spinner Rujul Bhatt and man of the match Axar chipped in with two wickets apiece.
