Rohtak: Dec 2, 2012

Unmukt Chand‘s impressive half century was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dull day for Delhi as they were struggling 165 for six in reply to Haryana’s decent first innings score of 307 in a group league encounter of the Ranji Trophy.

Delhi still need 143 runs to get the first innings lead and has very little support with Sumit Narwal being dismissed off the last ball of the second day bowled by Haryana skipper Amit Mishra.

Mishra has taken two wickets while medium pacer Harshal Patel has also taken a couple of wickets.

Unmukt, who has faced 130 balls hit eight fours and two sixes but didn’t get much support with senior pros Rajat Bhatia (21) and Mithun Manhas (20) even after spending considerable time in the middle. The only significant partnership in the Delhi innings so far has been 67 runs for the fourth wicket added by Unmukt and Bhatia.

Unmukt now has Vikas Mishra, Parvinder Awana and Manoj Chauhan for company and it will be a big ask for the youngster to atleast ensure first innings lead for his team.

Earlier in the day, Haryan started from 219 for six and their tail wagged considerably to help the hosts cross 300-run mark. Harshal Patel smashed a quickfire 39 off 49 balls as Awana got a five-wicket haul.

Awana’s five for 71 was his seventh in first-class cricket but now he will have to perform with the bat in order to bail his team out.

Brief Scores: Haryana 307 all out (Rahul Dewan 71, Rahul Dalal 48, Parvinder Awana 5 for 71) lead Delhi 165 for 6 (Unmukt Chand 76*, Harshal Patel 2 for 42, Amit Mishra 2 for 48) by 142 runs
