Ranji Trophy- Day 2
Srinagar, Dec 23: Himachal Pradesh will feel with having slightly upper hand at the end of second days play in the four day Ranji Trophy match against hosts JK at GGM Science College ground Jammu on Sunday.
Starting days play on 26 for the loss of no wicket in pursuit of JK’s first inning total of 175 runs, Himachal Pradesh were jolted by JK pacer Ram Dayal who took first six wickets of their inning. They lost first wicket without troubling the scorecard and went to loose another five when scoreboard read 58 only. At that point it looked that visiting team will be bundled out under 100. However, Mukesh Sharma and A Bhallaik took HP score past 100 and added 65 runs for the seventh wicket. The whole HP team was bundled out for 189 runs with first inning lead of only 14 runs. A Bhalaik top scored for them with 40 while as Karanveer Singh and Mukesh Sharma contributed with crucial 34 and 28 respectively. For JK, Ram Dayal starred with six wicket haul while as Parvez Rasool took two. Sameer Ali and Waseem Raza chipped in with one wicket each.
At the end of Himachal Pradesh’s inning JK think tank would have been happy by conceding only lead of 14 runs but their happiness soon turned into sorrow ads they realised it is their batting that fails them.
At the end of days, play, JK second inning was in tatters with three batsmen back in pavilion for the score of 16 runs. Parvez Rasool was batting on seven while as O Shah was yet to open his score. For HP VS Malik took one wicket while as R Dhawan took two.
It was altogether another bowler’s day with 13 wickets falling. The opening day also saw 10 JK wickets falling. With pitch having the nature of breaking down on third and fourth day it is expected to continue assist bowlers.
