Rajkot: Jan 7, 2013

A patient unbeaten century by middle-order batsman Arpit Vasavada helped Saurashtra put up 469 runs against Karnataka on the second day of their five-day Ranji Trophy quarterfinal match at Saurashtra University ground at Rajkot on Monday.

Overnight batsman Vasavada (152 not out) and Chirag Jani were batting steadily in morning before off-spinner Krishnappa Gautham gave the visitors the much needed breakthrough by removing Jani who made 36 off 113 balls with five fours and added 71 runs with Vasavada for the sixth wicket.

Kamlesh Makwana too made a useful contribution, adding 78 runs for the seventh wicket during which Vasavada completed his century.

The hosts’ innings, however, folded soon after departure of Makawana, who made 32, while Vasavada remained unbeaten on 152 after facing 357 balls with 23 fours.

For Karnataka, Abhimanyu Mithun and Gautham took three wickets each giving away 79 and 127 runs respectively while Shivalingaiah finished with two for 47.

In reply, Karnataka openers Robin Uthappa and K Rahul gave steady start making 45 runs off 14 overs without getting separated.

Brief Scores: Saurashtra 469 (Arpit Vasavada 152 not out, Shitanshu Kotak 46, Cheteshwar Pujara 37; A Mthun 3 for 79, Gautham 3/127) lead Karnataka: 45 for no-loss (Robin Uthappa 29*, K Rahul 12*) by 424 runs
