Rajkot, Oct 3 (PTI) Left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar was virtually unplayable on a raging turner, returning with a match-haul of 10 wickets as Rest of India pulverised Ranji Trophy champions Saurashtra by 175 runs inside three days to win the Irani Cup here on Tuesday.

As many as 21 wickets fell on the day with Saurashtra being shot out for 79 in just 34.3 overs in pursuit of a near impossible target of 255 which would have taken a Herculean effort on this track.

Saurabh, who has been a regular India A spinner, had match figures of 10/108 (4/65 and 6/43) and his effort trumped opposition's Parth Bhut, who finished on losing side despite taking 12/147 (5/94 and 7/53).
