Bengal reached 39 for 2 in 15 overs, with Abhimanyu Easwaran (14) and Pritam (7) at the crease pulling stumps.

Senapati hit a 127-ball 67, studded with nine hits to the border, but Odisha on the other hand continued to lose wickets at regular intervals.

First to act was opener Shantanu Mishra (42), who was able to add just one run to his overnight score, becoming the Pritam’s first casualty.

Rakesh Pattnaik was quickly sent off by Ishan in the 42nd over, while G Poddar fell victim to Akash Ghatak, as Odisha lost half their match for 139 for 5.

Senapati added 45 with Rajesh Dhuper (15) before the latter was cleared by Ishan.

Prayash Singh and Senapati took them over 200 before the former was back in the hut in 81st.

Eight balls later, Senapati was removed by Pritam as they were 210 for 8.

Lower hitters Pradhan (22), Sunil Roul (24) and Basant Mohanty (15 not out) then made useful contributions to take Odisha over 250.

Both Rohtak and Nadaun had play interrupted on the second day due to poor lighting with no ball being bowled.

Padikkal hundred helps Karnataka to lead in 1st innings

Devdutt Padikkal scored a fine century to give Karnataka the first innings lead against Jharkhand in the Ranji Trophy Group C match at Jamshedpur on Wednesday.

The southpaw scored 114 points; his 175-ball knock was studded with seven boundaries and five sixes.

Karnataka resumed the overnight score of 80 for 2 and added 220 runs before the spinning duo of Shahbaz Nadeem (5/141) and Anukul Roy (3/66) knocked them off for 300 on the second day.

Besides Padikkal, wicket-keeper BS Sharath, who scored a 75-ball 60, was the other major contributor for Karnataka as the middle order struggled to put runs on the board.

Trailing by 136 runs, Jharkhand was 85 for 2 at the end of the second day.

Both openers were back in the cabin. While Kumar Deobrat scored 20 from 42 balls, Aryaman Sen was dismissed for a first-ball duck by mediocre pacer Vasuki Koushik.

Delhi skipper Dhull back between runs against Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Young skipper Yash Dhull finally found form coming his way as Delhi posted 223 for 5 after bowling out Hyderabad for 355 in their Ranji Trophy Group B match.

Back to open the innings after missing out on his team’s historic victory over traditional rivals Mumbai in the previous round, Dhull scored 72 runs off 74 balls on the second day of the elite group match as Delhi scored with over four runs per over.

IPL star Ayush Badoni hit an 85-ball 78 as stumps were pulled for the day.

It’s a sort of redemption for 20-year-old Dhull, whose nightmarish Ranji season took a turn for the worse after the “ill” Delhi captain was ruled out of their clash with Mumbai last week.

However, Dhull’s debut season is successful; he has scored 820 runs, including four hundreds, at an average of 74.54.

Thanks to consistency, Dhull was named skipper of the Delhi Ranji team, which also includes 100-Test veteran Ishant Sharma and IPL star Nitish Rana, less than a year after captaining India Under-19 to World Cup triumph.

Hyderabad resumed the day at 247 for 4 and was helped by Rohit Rayudu’s fine hitting of 153. Rayudu was undefeated overnight at 90.

Seamers Harshit Rana and Divij Mehra took three wickets each for Delhi, while Pranshu Vijayran and Hrithik Shokeen took two each.

At stumps, Delhi trailed the hosts by 132 points.

Short scores:

In Hyderabad: Hyderabad 355 all out in 124 overs (Rohit Rayudu 153, Chandan Sahani 67; Divij Mehra 3/45, Harshit Rana 3/63) vs Delhi 223/5 in 50 overs (Yash Dhull 72, Ayush Badoni 78 at bat) .

In Mumbai: Maharashtra 384 all out in 115 overs (Kedar Jadhav 128, Assay Palkar 66, Saurabh Nawale 58; Mohit Avasthi 5/89, Shams Mulani 3/118) vs Mumbai 187/5 in 56.4 overs (Prasad Pawar 99 at bat).

In Chennai: Tamil Nadu 324 all out in 142.4 overs (Baba Indrajith 66, Vijay Shankar 53, M Shahrukh Khan 50; Yuvrajsinh Dodiya 4/72, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja 3/95) vs Saurashtra 92/3 in 35 overs.

In Vizianagaram: Assam 113 and 62/5 in 23 overs (Lalith Mohan 2/13) vs Andhra 361 all out in 112 overs (Karan Shinde not out 90, Hanuma Vihari 80, Abhishek Reddy 75; Swarupam Purkayastha 4/48)

MP gives strong reply after Tripura post 362

Indore: Shubham Sharma hit an unbeaten fifty as Madhya Pradesh reached 98 for one after rejecting Tripura for 362 on the second day of their Ranji Trophy Group D match.

Resuming at 239 for 6, Tripura added 96 runs for the loss of three wickets at lunchtime before finally folding for 362 in 134.3 overs.

It was Abhijit Sarkar’s 68-ball unbeaten 50 that kept Tripura ticking as they passed the 350 mark.

For MP, Anubhav Agarwal (3/64) and G Yadav (3/84) took three wickets each, Avesh Khan (2/92) claimed two and Kumar Kartikeya (1/64) and Mihir Hirwani (1/21) were good for each one.

In reply, MP Himanshu Mantri (16) lost early as they were 28 for 1 in 9 overs during the tea break.

Shubham appeared to be in good contact as he broke seven boundaries in his unbeaten 91-ball innings.

At stumps, Yash Dubey and Shubhman in the crease with MP still trailed by 264 points.

Play was interrupted on the second day in the match between Chandigarh and Jammu and Kashmir due to a wet outfield.
