Rest of India (ROI) recovered after a disastrous morning session with a spirited show against Karnataka in the Irani Cup. At tea, ROI are 163 for six and only lost one wicket in the afternoon session.

 

Once Amit Mishra and Dinesh Karthik returned for the afternoon session, they found batting a lot easier. The wicket did not have the same bite as it had in the morning and they could play their strokes. The fast bowlers were not getting that help and the batsmen had the chance to capitalize.

 

After surviving the shout early in his innings during the morning session, Karthik had moved confidently at the crease, standing tall to drive and cutting well. But, he had tempered all that with a lot of patience and played the sheet anchor role as wickets fell in a jiffy.

 

But, one couldn’t expect the same from Mishra as he was going to latch on to every possible opportunity. It all started with a pull shot that went to the boundary and once the spinner Shreyas Gopal was in, Mishra’s eyes lit up and he carted a six down the ground. He also charged at him by clearing his frontfoot a few times.

 

Mishra was speeding to his fifty and had crossed Karthik, but then he guided an overpitched delivery into third-slip’s hands. That brought Harbhajan Singh to the crease and he was resolute during his stay and helped Karthik through to tea.

 

Karthik got to his fifty with a gracious punch for four through the off-side and smashed anything short and wide. His confidence grew and with some support, he may be able to extend ROI’s score.

 

Brief scores:

 

Rest of India 163 for 6 (Dinesh Karthik 77*, Amit Mishra 47; R Vinay Kumar 3 for 26, Stuart Binny 2 for 19) vs Karnataka.
