    Mumbai vs Maharashtra - LUNCH

    Shayan Acharya: Maharashtra lost four early wickets in the first session of the final day, before heading to lunch at 151-6, with Azim Kazi (not out 47) and Saurabh Nawale (not out 24) forging an unbroken 50-run partnership.

    Mumbai, however, will be disappointed as Yashasvi Jaiswal dropped Nawale at gully for a solitary run off a Mohit Avasthi delivery. And making optimum use of the reprieve, Nawale went on forging a steady partnership with Kazi.

    While it looked evident that Mumbai was eyeing an outright win in a bid to reach the quarterfinals, Maharashtra batters tried steadying the ship after its middle-order crumbled.

    Avasthi made the most of the conditions in the morning to send Vicky Ostwal packing early, and in the next over, Shams Mulani got the big wicket of Kedar Jadhav. The seasoned Jadhav scored a century in the first innings, but in the second innings, he ended up being caught behind by Prasad Pawar for just two.

    Mumbai tightened the noose further, dismissing Siddhesh Veer and Ankit Bawane, but Maharashtra regrouped with Kazi and Nawale around.

  • January 27, 2023 11:59
    Uttarakhand vs Haryana - LUNCH

    Uttarakhand is bowled out for 269 runs. Avneesh Sudha was the top scorer with 62 as his team ends with a 36-run lead. Uttarakhand will advance to the knockouts as the second team from Elite Group A.

  • January 27, 2023 11:17
    Saurashtra 61/4; needs 205 more

    Day 3 Recap - Pondicherry vs Kerala

    Riding on Sagar Udeshi’s five for 62, Pondicherry grabbed the first-innings honours on the third day of its Group C Ranji Trophy match against Kerala here at the Siechem Stadium on Thursday.

    After bundling out the visitors for 286, Paras Dogra and Jay Pande saw off the day without fuss as Pondicherry went ahead by 119 runs heading into the final day.

    Kerala would have been hopeful of staging a comeback after Basil Thampi trapped Neyan Kangayan in front in the third over with a delivery that seamed in.

    Earlier, Pondicherry reaped the rewards of patience and planning. Udeshi bowled 17 wicketless overs in the first session. He spun the ball into overnight batters Sachin Baby (39, 125b, 3x4) and Salman Nizar (44, 126b, 3x4, 1x6), who refrained from going for the big hits on the leg-side, as it was manned by two fielders in the deep.

    Day 3 Recap - Jharkhand vs Karnataka

    Karnataka recorded a thumping nine-wicket win over Jharkhand on the third day of their Ranji Trophy Elite Group ‘C’ encounter at the Keenan Stadium in Jamshedpur on Thursday.

    The victory took the Mayank Agarwal-led side to 35 points from seven games, helping it seal top spot. Its quarterfinal opponent will be known on Friday after the rest of the matches conclude.

    Karnataka’s star on day three was offie K. Gowtham finishing with five wickets (28-5-75-5) to take his match haul to nine wickets. From an overnight 85 for two, Jharkhand could score just 201, setting Karnataka a 66-run target.

    The visitors knocked off the runs in 18.1 overs with Nikin Jose remaining unbeaten on 42 (45 n.o., 9x4) and R. Samarth on 24 (62b, 2x4).

    Day 3 Recap - Mumbai vs Maharashtra

    The scores were levelled at 384. Mumbai needed one run to take the much-needed first-innings lead against Maharashtra to reach the quarterfinals of the ​Ranji Trophy.

    Everything looked in the home team’s favour until Vicky Ostwal struck on the final delivery before tea as Tanush Kotian’s sweep shot cost him his leg stump. And with that, Mumbai’s hopes of reaching the playoffs were also dented.

    Unless Mumbai miraculously pulls off an outright win on the final day on Friday, Maharashtra will end its campaign on 26 points and pave the way for Andhra (also on 26 points) to qualify from Elite Group B as the second team - along with Saurashtra - on the virtue of more bonus points won.
