Tamil Nadu has got the first job done by bowling out Assam for 266 and has enforced the follow-on after taking a 274-run lead.

In the second session, TN took the new ball in the 81st over but Sarupam Purkayastha was ready for the challenge and liked the ball coming on nicely. He started by hitting Sai Kishore for consecutive boundaries through covers and a sweep to square-leg and flicking pacer Trilok Nag twice through fine-leg and brought up his 50.

At the other end, Akash Sengupta played a valiant role in giving company to Saurpam as they added 65 for the eighth wicket. Akash was finally bowled by Sai Kishore. Mukhtar Hussain followed soon trying to hit Ajith Ram and was caught at mid-on. Skipper Sai Kishore then had Sarupam bowled with an arm ball to close the innings.

KARNATAKA 319/4 VS KERALA 342

Mayank Agarwal reaches 200 in style, square cutting Nidheesh for a boundary. He moved from 185 to 203 in six balls.

January 19, 2023 12:49

ASSAM 200/7 VS TAMIL NADU 540 - LUNCH

Tamil Nadu continued to edge ahead in the first session of day three with Assam 200/7 in reply to the former’s 540.

The pitch is now starting to decisively favour the bowlers with turn and uneven bounce, making it challenging for the batters. Only 80 runs were scored in 34 overs while Tamil Nadu got three wickets.

Sandeep Warrier was the beneficiary of a ball keeping low as he castled Assam skipper Gokul Sharma. Sai Kishore then had Abhishek Thakuri caught at slip. The TN skipper was impressive, beating the bat often and even had a few close lbw shouts go in the batter’s favour.

He has been able to extract bounce and turn while the other left-arm spinner S. Ajith Ram continues to impress. Siddharth Sarmah was the third wicket to fall in the day, a poor shot trying to hit Ajith out of the park and giving a catch to deep midwicket. A good delivery from Ajith bowling it a bit wide and pulling the length back as the batter had to reach for it.

With the new ball due in another one over, it will be interesting to see if TN opts to give another burst to its pacers considering they will be fresh after lunch or persist with the spinners.

Assam needs a miracle from this point on with Sarupan Purkayastha batting on 27. The visitors need to get to 390 or basically almost double their current tally to even avoid the follow-on.

January 19, 2023 12:16
MUMBAI 46/5 & 293 VS DELHI 369 - LUNCH

Day 2 Recap - Kerala vs Karnataka

When off-spinner Vaishak Chandran clean bowled Karnataka opener R.Samarth’s defence in the first over, the signs were ominous for the visitor. But skipper Mayank Agarwal’s classy unbeaten 87 put his side in control at the end of the second day’s play in the Ranji Trophy match against Kerala at the KCA-St.Xavier’s College ground on Wednesday.

Karnataka, in reply to Kerala’s first innings total of 342, recovered from the early loss of its opener to score 137 for two at stumps. Mayank looked comfortable against spinners and medium pacers. He resurrected the innings with Devdutt Padikkal (29), adding 89 runs for the second wicket, which wrested the initiative from Kerala.

Day 2 Recap - Saurashtra vs Andhra

Andhra batter Ashwin Hebbar’s maiden First Class century stalled Saurashtra’s progress on day two of their Ranji Trophy sixth-round clash at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Wednesday.

While Saurashtra skipper Jaydev Unadkat had hoped to restrict the opposition to 300 after the opening day, Andhra, fuelled by Ashwin’s 109 (198b, 12x4, 1x6), posted 415 in its first innings.

After adding 159, for the loss of five wickets, to its overnight total, Andhra crippled Saurashtra with early scalps before Sheldon Jackson (63*) and Arpit Vasavada (21*) led the home team to 122 for three at stumps.

Day 2 Recap - Tamil Nadu vs Assam

Pradosh Ranjan Paul (153, 212b, 16x4) and Vijay Shankar (112, 187b, 7x4, 1x6) are going through one of the best phases of their careers as they slammed their respective third centuries of the season on Wednesday.

Their tons powered Tamil Nadu to a mammoth 540 in the first innings against Assam on day two of the Ranji Trophy clash at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The home team then pressed home the advantage by reducing Assam to 120 for four at stumps.

Day 2 Recap - Delhi vs Mumbai

With its backs to the wall, Delhi is providing its stiffest resistance so far this season. Much of day two of its Ranji Trophy contest against Mumbai at the Arun Jaitley Stadium was spent establishing a foundation for a first-innings lead.

A determined if dour partnership of 195 (343b) between Vaibhav Rawal (114, 195b, 16x4) and Himmat Singh (85, 167b, 7x4, 2x6) led Delhi to 316/7 and pushed Mumbai to the backfoot and needing a lot to do to redeem itself in the second half of the tussle.
