Fiery spells by Ratnesh Mishra (5 for 34) and Praveen Kumar (3 for 30) gave Uttar Pradesh an outside chance to make it to the knockout stage of the Ranji Trophy one-day tournament, as they ripped apart Rajasthan at the SMS stadium on Tuesday.

The medium-pacers not only gave a morale-boosting victory to UP but also help them earn a bonus point, which has revived the depleted UP's chances of entering the knockout stage.

Rajasthan, already out of the tournament, had to suffer ignominy of 154-run defeat in their last encounter of the Central Zone Ranji Trophy League one-day league.

Brief scores: Uttar Pradesh 277 for 9 (Shukla b Singh 66, J Yadav c Jhalani b Yadav 61, Saif c Sharma b Yadav 24) beat Rajasthan 123 all out in 31.5 ovs (R Mishra 5 for 34).
