  • February 18, 2024 15:48

    Punjab 86/3 following on

    Dipak: What an enthralling session of cricket. Ajith Ram quickly ran through the Punjab lower-order to help his side take a 161-run first-innings lead. With TN needing an outright win, Sai Kishore enforced the follow-on.

    Ajith struck immediately, removing Prabhsimran Singh leg-before. However, Punjab has Bazballed with Abhishek Sharma taking on Sai and lofting the left-arm spinner for five sixes in an over, three down the ground and two over mid-wicket.

    But TN had the last laugh when Pradosh castled him before Ajith removed Anmolpreet Singh with a beauty to clip the off-stump. Nehal Wadhera has continued to attack, using sweeps and reverse sweeps to brutal effect and raced to 40. 

    TN could have had the Wadhera had Vimal Khumar held on to an easy chance at backward point in the last over before tea. Poor stuff from the youngster. Punjab now 86/3 in 16 overs and trail by 75 runs.

    Punjab is not looking to hang back, and it offers the hosts a chance to get into the lower order soon before the deficit is wiped. If Gujarat wins with a bonus point against Goa, TN will have to win this game outright to qualify. An interesting third session awaits.

    Punjab 247/6 at Lunch

    Dipak: Punjab batters kept the home team at bay with a fine performance on day three in a session crucial to Tamil Nadu’s chance of forcing a win.

    Skipper Mandeep Singh and Anmol Malhotra frustrated the hosts for an hour before the former was dismissed. Mandeep looked good for a big one until he top-edged a short ball from Ajith Ram to give a simple catch to Sai Kishore.

    Then Sanvir Singh chipped in with a vital knock as Punjab managed 106 runs in the session. Sanvir scored quickly with four boundaries, starting with a six and four off Ajith.

    After taking the second new ball, TN got something to cheer at the stroke of lunch when Sai Kishore had Sanvir stumped for a well-made 39. The TN skipper has been his side’s best bowler, beating the bat often and finding the edges that have gone wide of the slip fielder.

    It could have been better for TN if wicketkeeper S. Lokeshwar had not made a mess of a simple run-out chance with his indecision. 

    Anmol Malhotra was hit on the pads by Mohammed and tried to steal a leg-bye, but non-striker Mandeep didn’t respond. With the batter stuck in the middle, Lokeshwar took an eternity to take a shot at the stumps, and when he did, it was a poor throw. It was amateur stuff from the TN keeper. Anmol, who was on 10, has since moved to 45 with four boundaries.

    The pitch has held firm, and there are not a lot of demons to worry the batters. TN need to quickly bundle out Punjab in the next session to keep its qualification hopes alive.
