Hmmm.

Your BCCI test team is getting thrashed by a bunch of Australians who are not even good enough for their FC teams.

Congratulations Gujarat on trashing Mumbai, not happen once in entire 3 decades in the past.1970-2000 was Bombay's Supremacy in Ranji trophy alone with Karnataka.

We did it without Bumrah ( Gujarat) they beaten without Shaw, Rohit,Rahane and Thakur etc)

Rohit and Rahane play in Ranji trophy once in entire year

Being Gujarati,I feel like India win World cup 2019.We beat Mumbai in Mumbai

We are much more higher in point table in Ranji trophy than Mumbai.

Good results today.

Karnataka beat Maharashtra.

But far more importantly, Mumbai got thrashed by Gujarat.

Congrats, GMAH786.

Mumbai losing is always a source of joy for me. :-)

No offence, bolero.

It has only to do with cricket - it's a chip on my shoulder considering how much Mumbai dominated domestic cricket for decades.

Ranji Highlights: Bengal snatch thriller against Tamil Nadu

The thrillers...

Tamil Nadu and Bengal produced a classic in Chennai as the visitors managed to walk away with a one-wicket win. Bengal started on 87 for 2 but Rahil Shah's five-wicket haul helped the team stage a remarkable comeback in the game. From 114 for 2, Bengal were tottering at 150 for 7 giving the hosts an opportunity to take the game away. Sudip Chatterjee (40) and Pradipta Pramanik (25) scored 57 for the eighth wicket to frustrate Tamil Nadu before the former fell. Ashoke Dinda was run out trying to back up too far as the match reached the climax. Pramanik held his nerve to take his side over the line only to leave the home fans disappointed.

Vishnu Vinod eventually ran out of partners as Kerala were shot down for 455 on the final day. However, his innings of unbeaten 193 - the seventh-highest score in Ranji Trophy history by a No. 8 batsman - meant Madhya Pradesh were set 191 to seal the contest - a target which was going to be tricky. No team had pulled off a win in the tournament after conceding a lead of more than 250 but Kerala had a chance to change that. Madhya Pradesh were soon 42 for 2 before Rajat Patidar and Yash Dubey steadied the ship. Kerala continued to chip away but a sensible 92-ball 48 from Shubham Sharma ensured Madya Pradesh won the contest by five wickets.

There was a race for a first-innings lead as well between Baroda and Saurashtra in Rajkot. As the run-fest continued, Baroda found themselves at 433 for 8 and still 97 away from taking three points. That's when Atit Sheth (55 not out) and Bhargav Bhatt (44) collaborated to take the team forward. Their stand frustrated the hosts, and was eventually broken late in the day. However, they did their job and allowed the team to take a two-run lead before the sides settled for a draw.

When Jammu & Kashmir reduced Services to 67 for 5 at the end of the third day, they were in with a very good chance of stealing a win. On the final day, however, Rajat Paliwal made unbeaten 43 to lead Services to a five-wicket win after a nervy start in the day.

The Winners...

The pendulum in the Mumbai-Gujarat clash swung both ways during the first three days at the Wankhede. On the final day,
Gujarat sealed the win in 41.5 overs. They also became the first side to beat Mumbai four times - Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra have done it three times each.

Chattisgarh resisted for a while and posted 143 all out after being 28 for 4. The score, however, wasn't going to trouble Vidarbha who needed to chase 44. The openers completed the task with ease to help the side register a bonus point win.

Devdutt Padikkal (77), Dega Nischal (61) and Mir Kaunain Abbas (34 not out) ensured Karnataka eased to their target of 184 and registered a seven-wicket win over Maharashtra.

Things unfolded rather rapidly in Hyderabad as Himachal were shot down for 97 in their second innings. Ravi Kiran's four wickets meant the hosts had to chase just 97 and the openers completed the chase without a dent.

Odisha recovered from a late wobble on the third day, that saw them slip to 79 for 5 against Tripura in chase of 216. Subhranshu Senapati (84 not out) and Abhishek Raut (83 not out) scored unbeaten 138 on the final day to ensure there were no more hiccups in the win.

The Puducherry win...

Pankaj Singh and Fabid Ahmed ended with four wickets each as Puducherry cruised to a win by an innings and 238 runs. Mizoram started the day on 40 for 8 and then there wasn't much action as they lost their last two wickets after adding just five runs.

And the stat...

Out of the 16 contests in this round, 14 of them resulted in outright wins. The clashes that ended in a draw were between Baroda and Saurashtra and Goa and Jharkhand.



Wow this will pinch Bombay supporters

: "" Gujarat became only side who beat Mumbai 4 times in Ranji trophy "

Only Maharashtra, Tami nadu and Karnataka beat Mumbai 3 times each in Ranji trophy history

TBH, Mumbai cricket is going downhill.

There are some talented players like Shubham Ranjane who have not been selected.

There are major problems between administrators and the team.

Agarkar , head of selection panel is under fire from reputed cricket commentators like Makarand Waingankar

Mumbai star fast bowler Tushar Deshpande got injured on the first day against Gujarat. Thakur is already injured (got injured in the 2nd over against Windies with a groin tear).

There are issues.

Ranji Trophy 2018-19: Alarm over workload of pacers after Tushar Deshpande's injury recurs

When Tushar Deshpande played a Purshottam Shield match for Parsee Gymkhana early this month, not only did he break down with a right hamstring injury, but his appearance surprised the team management and selectors alike. That the injury recurred on the opening day of Mumbai’s Ranji Trophy game against Gujarat despite Deshpande missing the last match versus Karnataka has raised alarms over the workload management of bowlers.

However, head coach Vinayak Samant isn’t convinced about asking Ranji regulars to skip club games. “It doesn’t work that way. Whenever a Ranji player makes a comeback, he wants to play for his club. I was strict that he (Deshpande) should not play, but somehow he went on to play,” Samant said.

“It (injury) can happen in Ranji too. We are concerned that there should be no overload for bowlers but a bowler like Tushar, we have to push him to rest. He is a dum waala (energetic) bowler. Even with the old ball or on a dull pitch, he wants to bowl with the same attitude.”

He is unlikely to recover for four weeks and the Mumbai Cricket Association has requested for rehab to be carried out at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Without getting into the club game debate, chief selector Ajit Agarkar lamented the “bad timing” of Deshpande’s injury. “Wrong time to get injured, not just for the team but himself as well,” said Agarkar.

“Having a tough last season, coming back and doing so well in the one-dayers, then taking wickets at Karnail Singh (the venue versus Railways) which is a difficult ground to bowl at, it’s just one of those things. But he is still young. If you have to look at a silver lining, it’s better to get these injuries early on than later in your career,” he added.

“With the kind of effort he puts into his bowling there could be injuries later on as well. I don’t want to blame club cricket, because it may have happened in practice as well.”

Agarkar himself was a premier medium fast bowler for India. He should understand this.

First Karnataka allow the last pair to add 42, taking Saurashtra's score to 316.
Then they are reduced to 25/2.
A mini-recovery now, thanks to Karun Nair (62*) but defeat looms.

dashing new comers

Shahrukh Khan, a junior swimming champion and former winner of the junior CSK programme, is batting on 82 for Tamil Nadu against Kerala. He made his name during the TNPL this year as an opener, but the allrounder came in to bat at No.7, with Tamil Nadu at a shaky 81 for 5. They ended the day at a more comfortable at 249 for 6, though, with the 23-year-old debutant eyeing a century. Fun fact: He was named after the Bollywood actor who co-owns KKR. And he's entered his name for the IPL auction. So we could potentially have KKR, owned by Shah Rukh Khan, signing up Shahrukh Khan.

Ajay Rohera is another debutant in sight of a hundred. He's batting on 81 for Madhya Pradesh against Andhra, having opened the innings, and has already taken his team into the lead with nine wickets still standing.

Manipur's Mayank Raghav has scored a century on debut, and is batting on 109 with his team also having taken the lead against Nagaland, who were bowled out for 126.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir's Aakash Choudhary is having a good debut too. He came out to bat at No.11 and made an unbeaten 14 in 71-run stand with Irfan Pathan that took J&K to 290. He's also taken three wickets with his right-arm medium-pace, reducing Uttar Pradesh to 31 for 3.

The last debutant in focus hasn't yet had the chance to do anything. But lots of eyes will be trained on M Asaduddin when he comes out to bat for Goa tomorrow against Services. Comparisons with father Mohammad Azharuddin are inevitable. As are whispers about how exactly his move to Goa came about, given that at the start of the domestic season, there was considerable angst in the state about Asaduddin's status.

Paras Dogra smashed 253 at quicker than a run a ball for Puducherry against Sikkim. This is not only his highest score, but a record-breaking eighth double-hundred. No one in the Ranji Trophy has made more, and Dogra has now gone past Ajay Sharma, who had seven. Dogra's knock has taken Puducherry to an imposing first-day score of 418 for 4 in 90 overs.

Dogra's was the standout performance in the Plate Group, where professionals continued to drive teams. Meghalaya's Puneet Bisht and Yogesh Nagar made 154 and 91 against Uttarakhand, while Bihar's Ashutosh Aman took 4 for 26 against Arunachal Pradesh.

Andhra's Ricky Bhui is batting on 150 not out against Delhi, having carried his team to 266 for 7 almost single-handedly. This is Bhui's third century of the season in his fourth match.

Meanwhile, Piyush Chawla hit his sixth century in his 128th first-class match, and is still batting on 109 for Gujarat against Railways. Chawla came in at No.8 with Gujarat in some strife at 142 for 6, but he has carried them to a healthy 340 for 8 by stumps.

Among the two prominent domestic cricketers playing their farewell match, Gautam Gambhir hasn't batted yet. But Jaydev Shah continued his recent rich vein of form with 97 for Saurashtra against Karnataka. Jaydev walked in at 79 for 4, in the first session, and fell a little before stumps, missing out on an 11th first-class century. The innings, though, ensured his first-class average went past 30, and is now at 30.05. To keep it above 30, Jaydev needs to score at least 20 if he bats in the second innings and is dismissed. Saurashtra have ended the day on 288 for 9.

Blistering bowling

Avesh Khan destroyed Hyderabad with figures of 7 for 24 for Madhya Pradesh. Avesh took six of the first seven wickets to fall to have Hyderabad reeling at 37 for 7 at one stage, before Himalay Agarwal's 69* took them past three figures and to 124 all out. With Ajay Rohera enjoying a good debut, Madhya Pradesh have taken a commanding grip of the match already.

Uttar Pradesh left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar took a second successive six-wicket haul, against J&K. He had taken 6 for 77 against Rajasthan in the last round, and followed it with 6 for 90 to keep J&K to 290 on Thursday. However, thanks to Aakash Choudhary's impressive debut, Uttar Pradesh are in trouble at 31 for 3.

It was a good day for A Choudharys in general - the left-arm quick Aniket Choudhary took 5 for 38 for Rajasthan against Assam.

Been a bad day.

The matches I care about most in any Ranji Trophy season are the ones that involve Karnataka and Mumbai.
Karnataka needs to win, and Mumbai needs to lose, for me to have a good day.
Actually I can even handle Karnataka losing as long as Mumbai loses. :-)

Today, Karnataka got shot out for 217 in reply to Saurashtra's 316.
And Maharashtra, overnight 298/3, ended up 352 all out!
They were 310/3, but then Mumbai showed their Mumbai colours.
Mumbai in reply are coasting at 196/5, with the annoying Siddhesh Lad on 70*.


Meanwhile, Hyderabad (which is a shadow of the Hyderabad sides of the past) has this to show.
All out for 124, then Madhya Pradesh scores 539/4.
Ajay Rohera (who I'd never heard of till now) is 255*.

What's with Hyderabad of today?
Past teams used to boast of Jaisimha, MAK Pataudi, Abid Ali, P. Krishnamurthy, Abbas Ali Baig, K. Jayantilal, Vijay Mohan Raj, Vivek Jaisimha, V. Ramnarayan, Abdul Azeem, Mumtaz Hussain, Shivlal Yadav, Azharuddin and more recently VVS, MV Sridhar, Venkatapathy Raju and others.

Sad to see the state of today's team.

81/5 at tea.
Still need 98.
Not going to happen.

Pissed off with Karun Nair.
He and Shreyas Gopal had batted really well and stitched together a good partnership, giving Karnataka some hope.
Then Karun Nair goes and plays a reverse sweep to Makwana!
What was the need for that?
Adjudged lbw - and Karnataka in trouble again.

December 08 2018

Gambhir scored his 43rd first-class ton.

Completed games

- 20 wickets fell on the third day's play in Rajkot, where Karnataka lost by 87 runs to Saurashtra on bunsen of a pitch. The 99-run first innings lead proved handy for Saurashtra, who were bowled out for only 79 in their second innings but such was the pitch, sporting plenty of turn and bounce, that it was always going to be too many. Karnataka were bowled out for 91 in the fourth innings, with Kamlesh Makvana picking a five-wicket haul. Dharmendrasinh Jadeja picked four to take his match tally to 11 wickets, helping skipper Jaydev Shah wind his career down with a memorable win.

- Suresh Raina (66*) and Rinku Singh (42*) pulled off a tricky chase for Uttar Pradesh against Jammu and Kashmir, putting on 82 for the fifth wicket to steer the visitors to a six-wicket win. The home side, having taken a 102-run lead in the first innings, imploded to 111 all out in the second, setting a half-cooked target of 214 runs.

-Baroda beat Chhattisgarh by 9 wickets in Vadodara. Yusuf Pathan picked two lower-order wickets, meaning the target for Baroda was 28 runs. They missed the bonus point though, with Aditya Waghmode tantalizingly falling to Omkar Verma when the scores were level.

- Aniket Choudhary's five wickets in the second innings (and ten-wicket haul in the game) helped Rajasthan to a win by an innings and 43 runs over Assam. Sitting overnight on 109/3, Assam were bowled out 174 on the third morning, losing their last seven wickets for 33 runs. This was Rajasthan's first bonus point wins for the season to go with three outright wins and a draw.

What a feat!

- Ajay Rohera's 267 not, the highest score on debut in Ranji Trophy, made sure that Madhya Pradesh romped Hyderabad by an innings and 253 runs in Indore to pick up seven points. Hyderabad were shot out for 185 in their second essay, with Avesh Khan picking another five-wicket haul to take his match tally to 12.

Gautam Gambhir, stuck in the nervous nineties overnight, scored his 43rd first-class hundred in his farewell match. In association with Dhruv Shorey, who fell two short of his hundred, the left-hander helped Delhi into slender lead against Andhra at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

Uttarakhand's Vineet Saxena and Rajat Bhatiya batted through the third day against Meghalaya, piling individual double hundreds in a phenomenal 399-run stand for the fifth wicket. They now lead Meghalaya by 180 runs in a contest that looks headed towards a draw.

Batsmen who impressed

- Baba Indrajith's good form continued in the game, with the Tamil Nadu captain making 92 in the second innings to go with his 87 in the first. He helped Tamil Nadu to 252/7 dec. in the second innings, offsetting Sijomon Joseph's four-wicket haul to set Kerala a 369-run target.

- Mumbai captain Siddhesh Lad fell short of his hundred against Maharashtra, falling for 97 in the first session to trigger a collapse. Even Shubham Ranjane's unbeaten 54 lower down the order couldn't stop Mumbai from getting bowled out for 273, conceding a lead of 79 runs. Maharashtra put on a 58-run opening stand in reply, thanks to 30-odds from Swapnil Gugale and Chirag Khurana, but a collapse thereafter saw them lose plunge from 77/1 to 104/5. Going into the final day, Maharashtra lead by 191 runs with five wickets in hand.

- Rajat Paliwal made 94 in Services' second innings against Goa, and combined with Navneet Singh (67) and Gahlaut Rahul Singh (81*) to eat into 75-run deficit on the basis of first innings. Services lead by 202 runs with five wickets in hand, and will need quick runs early tomorrow to push for an outright win.

More from the Plate Group

- Bihar mauled Arunachal Pradesh by an innings and 317 runs in Patna. Arunachal Pradesh were bowled out for 135, with Ashutosh Aman's seven-wicket haul hastening a forgone conclusion. Opener Samarth Seth's 58 was the lone saving grace for the visitors.

- Manipur beat Nagaland by 7 wickets in Dimapur. Thanks to wicketkeeper-batsman KB Pawan's 131, Nagaland took a 124-run lead but Yashpal Singh's five-wicket haul kept the lead in check, setting the stage for Lakhan Rawat to take them home with a half-century.

- Reeling at 48/4 overnight, Sikkim were propelled by Milind Kumar's 96 to a respectable 247 in the first innings. It was nowhere close to Puducherry's 647/8 dec. in the first innings, which meant Sikkim still had to follow on. They trail by 295 runs and have seven wickets in hand going into the fourth and final day.

Going into the final day...

- Tripura need 58 more runs with three wickets in hand against Haryana, and Pratyush Singh, who's unbeaten on 23, holds the key for the hosts in the 162-run chase. The fact that Haryana could post as much was thanks to Himanshu Rana's 64 at the top, which took their second innings total to 119.

- Saurabh Tiwary hit an unbeaten 132 for Jharkhand against Odisha, helping the home side to 288 in the second innings and setting a target of 318. Odisha need 179 more runs with seven wickets in hand on the final day.

- Mahesh Rawat's 119 not out helped add 181 runs for the eighth and ninth wickets, propping Railways to 547/9 dec. in response to Gujarat's 367 in the first innings. Going into the final day, Gujarat trail by 176 runs with all ten wickets in hand.

- Punjab, overnight on 75/9, were eventually bowled out for 84 and made to follow on against Himachal Pradesh and are now on the brink of an embarrassing defeat at home. They fared better in the second innings but not by much. Gurvinder Singh's four wickets and captain Mandeep Singh's run out means that they lost eight wickets and still trail by 111 runs at stumps on the third day.

2017 Ranji trophy winner Vidarbha 331 all out not enough vs Railway at Delhi.Fazal (53) and Karnaveer (93) bats well for the champion Vidarbha

Railway most likely to take lead today as Gujarat Lion IPL opener now with Railway -- Pratham singh (95*) lead railways reply with 200/2

In other game Delhi most likely to loose vs Kerala All rounder
Jalal hit 68 than his 6 for 36 off 31 overs restricted Delhi to 139 all out

Jalal Saxena m.o.m

Kerala trounce Delhi; Irfan Pathan leads J&K to big win

- Irfan Pathan picked 5 for 18 in Jammu and Kashmir's 130-run win over Haryana, who were overnight on 49/4 and were eventually bowled out for 91. Umar Nazir Mir, who had a five-wicket haul in the first innings, picked three in the second, helping J&K collect six points in their second win of the season.

- Delhi were routed by an innings and 27 runs by Kerala in Thiruvananthapuram. Overnight on 41/5, Delhi lost Dhruv Shorey in the morning to Jalaj Saxena, who picked three wickets overall to take his match-tally to nine wickets. Saxena was also named the player of the match.

- After a heartbreaking 2-run defeat to Jharkhand in their last encounter, Odisha lost another close game, this time to Rajasthan by 35 runs. At the start of the day, Odisha needed 167 runs with eight wickets in hand. They were reeling at 69/6, thanks to regular wickets from Aniket Choudhary and TM Ul-Haq, until Suryakant Pradhan came into the act. The No.8 batsman scored 56 off 33 balls to take Odisha closer but his wicket by Nathu Singh shut the door for Odisha, who endured their second consecutive loss.

Spells of the day

- Harsh Tyagi's 7 for 41 helped bowl Vidarbha out for 147 in the second innings on a day 19 wickets fell in Karnail Singh Stadium in Delhi, meaning Railways need 224 runs on the final day's play.

- Chetan Sakariya's 6 for 63 for Saurashtra made sure that Maharashtra were short by a run and made to follow on. In their second essay, Maharashtra are 157/3, with a 6-run lead.

- Rahul Shukla (5 for 65) and Varun Aaron (4 for 59) shared nine wickets between them to bowl Uttar Pradesh out on 243, securing a 111-run lead. Suresh Raina was the top-scorer but his dismissal (hit wicket) triggered regular fall of wickets. In Jharkhand's second essay with the bat, Kumar Deobrat's 70 not out has taken them to a 254-run lead.

Batting highlights

- Shubman Gill converted his overnight 199* to a big 268. He fell stumped off the bowling of R Sai Kishore, who picked a six-wicket haul. Punjab finished on 479 before managing to pick three Tamil Nadu wickets. Abhinav Mukund scored 75, and N Jagadeesan 50, ensuring that the deficit is now 98 runs.

- Rajat Paliwal converted his overnight hundred into a big 180, helping Services to 396 in the first innings. Assam, in response, had a 71-run opening stand, thanks to Rishav Das (41) and Pallavkumar Das (27), but both fell in consecutive overs to Diwesh Pathania. At stumps on Day 3, Assam still trail by 102 runs.

- Rohit Rayudu's sedate 92* off 251 balls ensured that Hyderabad batted through the day losing only three more wickets, two of which went to Ashoke Dinda, and now trail by 132 runs. Himalay Agarwal chipped in with 65.

All-rounders of the day

- It was Taruwar Kohli's day out against Sikkim in Jorhat despite Mizoram staring at a defeat - needing 179 more runs on the final day with only two wickets in hand. Kohli's 5 for 39 first helped bowl Sikkim out for 169 and now he's unbeaten on 105.

- Baroda, once at 351/3, were in a position for a first-innings lead over Mumbai, thanks to Aditya Waghmode's hundred and Hardik Pandya's 73, but former's wicket led to a collapse at one end. Royston Dias picked four wickets while Shubham Ranjane picked three. Pandya had a good day at the office, first scoring runs and then coming back to pick Aditya Tare and Karsh Kothari's wickets.

In other news

- Andhra responded strongly to Himachal Pradesh's 460 with good partnerships at the top. Gnaneswara Rao, still unbeaten on 89, shared an opening stand of 95 with Prasanth Kumar, and then went on to share an unbeaten 80-run stand for the second wicket. At stumps on Day 3, Andhra were 175/1, trailing behind by 112 runs.

- Karnataka were bowled out for 389 in their first innings after ensuring a 173-run lead over Gujarat. The hosts lost two early wickets in their second innings but Bhargav Merai (74) and Rujul Bhatt (82*) made 134 runs for the third wicket, pushing Gujarat into a narrow lead.

Dube tempts IPL teams with five sixes in an over

Shivam Dube hit five sixes in an over

On the eve of the IPL auction, Mumbai allrounder Shivam Dube nearly turned the clock back as he hammered five sixes in five balls off left-arm spinner Swapnil Singh on the final day of their Ranji Trophy match against Baroda. He missed Ravi Shastri's record of six in six balls off another left-arm spinner Tilak Raj, also coming in a Bombay-Baroda match at the Wankhede stadium 33 years ago, as Swapnil fired the last ball of the over down the leg side, ensuring that Dube could not get any bat to it.

Dube galloped from 45 to 75 as he targeted the wide long-on region - the one that went over long-off almost seemed like an aberration. However, he fell soon after as this spurt of boundaries and the match too petered out into a draw.

This was not the first time Dube came close to hitting six sixes in an over. He had smashed another five in a Mumbai T20 league match. Mumbai captain Siddhesh Lad said he expected Dube to be picked up at a good price at the IPL auction.

"Yes, Shivam is a very talented player and we have seen how long he hits sixes," Lad said after the match. "I'm sure IPL teams are looking after him and he will go at a good price."

The allrounder has been in excellent form for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy. He is currently their second-highest run-getter behind Lad, with a tally of 489 and is also the highest wicket-taker, striking 17 time in the absence of three frontline pacers. Moreover, he has got his runs at a strike-rate of 69.85.

His strike-rate (137.09) had been impressive in Mumbai's title-winning Vijay Hazare Trophy campaign as well and it goes even higher when he plays T20s (147.65) - all of which should hold him in good stead when he comes up at the auction on Tuesday

Results of Maghaly vs Mizoram

Gurinder Singh's all-round show powers Meghalaya to massive


It's the 15th biggest win in terms of runs in Ranji Trophy history.

Led by Gurinder Singh's all-round performance, Meghalaya routed Mizoram by an innings and 324 runs to register the 15th biggest win (in terms of runs) in the history of Ranji Trophy to move to the second spot in the Plate points table (having played an additional game), with 26 points.

Put into bat, Mizoram were bowled out for 86 in the first session of Day 1. Akhil Rajput and HM Ralte were the only batsmen who managed to register double digit scores as Gurinder bagged a fifer.

Meghalaya came up with a strong reply, led by Yogesh Nagar's 144 - his third century of the season - which included century stands with Puneet Bisht and Gurinder. The latter was dismissed for 99 as the hosts posted 510.

Mizoram's fightback in the second essay was only slightly better as yet again they crumbled against Gurinder's left-arm spin, who bagged six to bowl them out for 100.

With this massive defeat, Mizoram continue to languish at the bottom of the table, having secured only one point in six matches.

Brief Scores: Mizoram 86 (HM Ralte 40; Gurinder Singh 5-15) & 100 (Sinan Abdulkhadir 30; Gurinder Singh 6-41) lost to Meghalaya 510 (Yogesh Nagar 144; Sinan Abdulkhadir 4-151) by an innings and 324 runs.

Ranji trophy after two days from fresh matches updates

Avesh Khan bagged six wickets against Delhi

With little resistance from any Railways batsmen, reduced to 55/6 at one stage, Manish Rao's unbeaten 52 helped them reduce the deficit against Karnataka, who picked up a healthy lead, ended their second innings on 41/0 at stumps.

Rinku Singh's brilliant season continued with another century, but he fell one short of 150. Priyam Garg, however, went on to score a double century, falling for 206, before Uttar Pradesh declared for a mammoth 552/7 against Tripura in Lucknow. In reply, Tripura were reeling at 33/4 at stumps.

Wasim Jaffer scored yet another century for Vidarbha, with his 126 playing a vital role in taking them to stumps trailing Gujarat's 321 by just 83. Gujarat, who resumed batting on Day 2 on 263/6, had their lower order chip in with handy contributions, especially the likes of Karan Patel, who had 55 before folding.

After having been reduced to 23/3, Chattisgarh did well to get to 332/5 thanks to centuries from Ajay Jadav Mandal (106*) and Amandeep Khare (108). Ashutosh Singh complemented them well with an unbeaten 75 when stumps were called, with them leading Maharashtra by 93 runs.

Ankit Kalsi's unbeaten 99 and Rishi Dhawan's 71 not out, en route a 119-run stand took Himachal Pradesh to stumps at 340/5, leading Tamil Nadu by 113. Earlier, they were led by opener Raghav Dhawan's 71.

Abhishek Raut's unbeaten century put Odisha on top against J&K, extending their lead to 196 before they were bowled out for 323. Irfan Pathan had four wickets to his name, but Odisha were comfortably placed after their first innings. J&K, who managed just 127 in their first innings, ended the day on 27/0 at stumps, trailing by 169.

Rajasthan stretched their lead from an overnight 139 to 325 at stumps on Day 2 thanks to an unbeaten 121 from Robin Bist after skipper Mahipal Lomror's century earlier in the day. Rajasthan ended the day on 443/5 in reply to Haryana's first-innings total of 118.

Noteworthy partnerships

In reply to MP's first-innings total of 132, Delhi were reeling at 96/6 with Avesh Khan causing much damage upfront. However, Shivam Sharma (39) and Anuj Rawat added 118 for the seventh wicket to bring Delhi back into the game.

Bihar's Mangal Mehrur remained unbeaten on 129, along with MD Rahmatullah, who was on 55, en route a stand that fetched their side 100 runs. Mehrur, earlier even added 76 with skipper Babul Kumar.

Services were reduced to 58/3 early on Day 2 after which, Ravi Chauhan (67) and skipper Rajat Paliwal (79) added over 100 runs to resurrect their innings. However, a mini collapse later saw them slip from 162/3 to 188/6. Arun Bamal (46), however, kept them in the contest with Chauhan adding 74 runs for the seventh wicket before they folded for 267. At stumps, however, Jharkhand trail Services by 25, ending the day on 49/1 after their first-innings total of 193.

Jaffer's 178 came off just 196 balls.

Batting highlights of the day

More than two decades ago in 1996, a young Wasim Jaffer in just his second first class game, cracked an imposing unbeaten 314 for Mumbai versus Saurashtra. It was an innings where he kept pulling the spin trio of Hitesh Parsana, VD Gohil and Dharmendra Chudasama. Fast forward to 2018. Jaffer at the age of 40, for the umpteenth time in his impressive first class career, put up a fine exhibition of strokeplay to compose an enterprising 178 off just 196 balls. However, Mumbai, this time around, were at the receiving end, with Jaffer playing for the third-placed side in the Elite (A and B) group Vidarbha. Jaffer's impressive innings alongside Atharwa Taide's 95 pushed Vidarbha to a formidable 389 for 4 at stumps in Nagpur.

Krunal Pandya, playing in only his second first class game, made his mark in the longest format with a breezy 189-ball 160 for Baroda. Pandya's noteworthy effort lifted Baroda from a perilously placed 114 for 5 to finish with 289 for 6 against Railways.

Jonty Sidhu, the 21-year-old, who is from the famous LV Shastri Academy, shone brightly with a resolute 85 for Delhi against Bengal in an Elite (A and B) group game. Sidhu's valuable hand pushed the North Zone side to a respectable 240 at close of play. Meanwhile, Dega Nischal continued his good form by essaying his second successive first class century for Karnataka versus Chhattisgarh. Kirishnamurthy Siddarth also compiled a hundred as the fourth-placed Karnataka (Elite A and B group) ended at 273 for 4 when stumps were drawn.

Bowling spells

The bowlers had a great time in the Elite Group C game between Assam and Jammu and Kashmir as 20 wickets fell on Day 1. Mukhtar Hussain, the promising Assam pacer, with 39 scalps during the current Ranji season, was the star performer of the day, snaring a five-wicket haul. Mukhtar had also received guidance from the legendary Glenn McGrath at the MRF Pace Academy this season. His efforts helped Assam to make an excellent comeback after being bowled out for a mere 128 in the first innings. After snuffing out J&K for just 144 in their first essay, Assam were 6 for no loss in their second dig at the end of day's play.

Siddarth Kaul returned a rich of six wickets for just 55 runs as Kerala were bundled out for a mere 121 runs in Mohali. Punjab then extended the advantage by finishing the day at 135 for 2.

In the Elite (A and B) game between Maharashtra and Gujarat, Chintan Gaja, the medium pacer, bagged a five-fer as the former was cleaned up for just 230. Gujarat, who have slotted in at sixth on the points table, were 41 for no loss at stumps. Ajit Chahal (5 for 16), the medium pacer from Haryana, and Surabh Kumar (7 for 33), Uttar Pradesh's left arm spinner, were among the wickets in the low-scoring Elitc C Group game between the two sides. During the course of the day, Rajasthan spinner, Rahul Chahar and the veteran Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda also impressed by taking four wickets each for their respective teams.

Plate Clashes

In the Plate Group, the Nagaland duo of Pawan Suyal and Abrar Kazi shared seven spoils as Arunachal Pradesh were shot down for just 135. Paras Sehrawat (87*) and Sedezhalie Rupero (62*) then took Nagaland to a position of strength at 152 for no loss. In another Plate game, Bihar, the second-placed side in the group, were in ascendancy versus Mizoram. Bihar were in a spot of bother at 117 for 6, but the duo of Ashutosh Aman (108*) and Vivek Kumar (94*) steered the side to safe waters.
