IANS  |  Indore 

clinched their maiden title as they rode on captain Parthiv Patel's stupendous 143 to beat record champions by five wickets on the final day here on Saturday.

Chasing a challenging 312-run target, second-time finalists were in trouble at 89-3 but a 116-run stand between Parthiv and Manprit Juneja (54) helped them stay in a strong position.

Left-hander Parthiv, who recorded his 25th century in first-class cricket, then stitched a 94-run stand for the fifth wicket with Rujul Bhat (27 not out) to help overhaul the target.
