Conceding the lead of 74 runs, J&K in their second innings batted positively and declared the innings at 223/9 in 46 overs, setting a target of 150 runs for Baroda.

Akshit Gandral played a brilliant knock of 80 runs off 69 balls while as Jasbir Singh scored quick-fire 32 runs off 26 balls. For Baroda, this time Karan Umatt took a five-wicket hual and Raj Limbani scalped 3 wickets.

In response, it was a cake-walk for Baroda as they chased down the target easily, loosing only 3 wickets (150/3 in 39.5 overs). Captain Harsh Desai once again played a brilliant knock of unbeaten 82 runs off 124 balls.
