Delhi vs Assam
Ishant Sharma has made a superb start to the season. He has bagged a fifer to bowl Assam out for 258. The hosts managed to add only 34 runs to their overnight score, with Ishant bagging the last two wickets. Not too sure if Assam will be happy with the effort, but they know bowling is their area of strength.
Team Rajasthan vs Jammu & Kashmir
Pacer Samiullah Beigh has struck twice early on Day 2 to dismiss overnight batsmen Tanveer-ul-Haq and Robin Bist. Bist, who had scored his 13th first-class ton, is out bowled. Team Rajasthan 264 for 6.
Haryana vs Saurashtra
Deepak Punia ends Saurashtra’s innings with a brilliant delivery. The ball rises steeply and gets the edge of Sanandia’s bat. Punia gets his second wicket. Saurashtra are bowled out for 278.
Haryana vs Saurashtra
Ashish Hooda, who had taken four crucial wickets yesterday, has bagged a fifer. Jaydev Unadkat and Dharmendrasinh Jadeja are out early on Day 2; the former edging to wicketkeeper Nitin Saini and the latter getting bowled. Saurashtra are reduced to 274 for 9.
Kerela vs Jharkhand
It took less than 15 minutes of play on Saturday morning for Kerela to wrap up Jharkhand’s innings. The visitors added only two runs to their overnight score before Sunny Gupta waas bowled by Sandeep Warrier for 24. Jharkhand bowled out for 202.
Himachal vs Punjab
Sandeep Sharma has struck early, twice. Paras Dogra, much like Devendra Bundela yesterday, is dismissed for 99, bowled by Sandeep. That must be painful! The pacer then traps Gangta to reduce Himachal to 467 for 4. Nonetheless, birthday boy and double centurion Prashant Chopra is still at the crease. He has moved to 274 and registered the highest score by a Himachal batsman. Himachal 477 for 4.
