Chennai: Siddesh Lad starred in Mumbai's 41-run win over Gujarat on Tuesday while defending champions Tamil Nadu crashed to a six-wicket defeat to Goa in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Group 'C' League.

Lad hit 11 fours and four sixes in his 125-ball 129 to power Mumbai to 317 for 8 in 50 overs.

Tamil Nadu lost six wickets for 44 runs to collapse to 210 all out before Swapnil Asnodkar's 103 took Goa home after a mid-innings wobble.

The Mumbai-Gujarat match saw Lad come up with a dominant display and was involved in two big partnerships, one with opener Akhil Herwadkar (37) for 88 runs and then with captain Aditya Tare (51) which yielded 127 runs.

In reply, Gujarat appeared to be behind on the required run-rate despite Panchal's century partnership with Bhargav Merai (64), who scored a ton against Tamil Nadu on Monday.

At MA Chidambaram stadium, Tamil Nadu couldn't build on a 89-run opening wicket partnership between Murali Vijay (51, 69 balls, 6X4, 1X6) and M Kaushik Gandhi (43) in the face of disciplined bowling and sharp fielding by Goa to be bowled out in 48.5 overs.

B Aparajith was the other major contributor with a patient knock of 52.

Asnodkar, who made waves with Rajasthan Royals in the inaugural IPL, led Goa's chase with a well-compiled ton (103). The visiting team scrambled home after a stutter towards the end.

Ravichandran Ashwin kept things tight and took 2 for 30 as the Goa batsmen played him with caution.

In the other game of the day, Andhra Pradesh notched up a second win on the trot, beating Madhya Pradesh by six wickets with medium-pacer P Girinath Reddy's six-wicket haul and G Hanuma Vihari (61 not out) being the stars.

Brief scores: Tamil Nadu 210 in 48.5 overs (M Kaushik Gandhi 43, M Vijay 51, B Aparajith 52 (70b, 2x4), Darshan Misal 3 for 42, Srinivas Fadte 3 for 51) lost to Goa 211 for 6 in 46.2 overs (Swapnil Asnodkar 103 (112b, 9x4, 2x6), Sagun Kamat 38 (76b, 4x4), R Ashwin 2 for 30).
