New Delhi, September 19: Robin Uthappa missed out on a hundred while team-mate Sheldon Jackson smashed his sixth ton in Saurashtra’s 25-run win against Uttar Pradesh in a Group B match of the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Wednesday.

Mavi, who gave away 73 runs in 10 overs, grabbed a hat-trick to remove Chirag Jani, Arpit Vasavada and Jaydev Unadkat in three balls to mark a memorable List A debut.
In chase of the huge target, UP managed to score 278.
