Himachal Pradesh seamer Arpit Guleria became the third Indian to record an eight-wicket haul in List A cricket during a Vijay Hazare Trophy match against Gujarat in Chandigarh on Tuesday.

After opting to bowl, the Himachal Pradesh bowlers were put under the pump by Gujarat openers Urvil Patel (116) and Priyank Panchal (96) during a 211-run stand. Guleria dismissed Panchal and ran through the rest of the top-six even as Gujarat posted a daunting 327 runs on the board.

The 26-year-old recorded his maiden List A five-wicket haul in the 49th over and picked three more wickets in the same over while missing a hat-trick. His figures are the third-best among Indians, behind overall record-holder Shahbaz Nadeem (8/10) and Rahul Sanghvi (8/15). Guleria is also just the 15th bowler to achieve the landmark in all recorded List A cricket across the world.

Having made his List A debut in 2018, Guleria has featured in four matches this season, claiming 13 wickets.
