Ranji Trophy 2012: Mohammad Kaif slams ton, Uttar Pradesh in command against Karnataka

Mohammad Kaif scored a 247-ball 122 to rescue Uttar Pradesh against Karnataka on Sunday AFP

Meerut: Nov 18, 2012

 

Mohammad Kaif struck a patient hundred as Uttar Pradesh fought back to take control of the proceedings by dismissing Karnataka cheaply on the second day of their Group B Ranji Trophy match on Sunday.

 

Uttar Pradesh, who were struggling at 163 for seven yesterday, posted 283 in their first innings, thanks largely to Kaif’s 247-ball 122 and useful cameos down the order.

 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar then played the wrecker-in-chief for the hosts, grabbing five wickets as Karnataka folded for 181 in 54.4 overs to hand the initiative to UP.

 

At stumps, UP were 55 for three that gave the team handy 157-run lead with seven wickets in hand.

 

On an eventful day, wickets fell in heap. For Karnataka, HS Sharath and KP Appanna were the pick of the bowlers.

 

While Sharath grabbed a fifer, Appanna picked up three wickets but not before UP had recovered from the opening day blues to post a competitive total on the board.

 

The visiting line-up, save for the half centuries by Manish Pandey (54) and Amit Verma (52), crumbled in the face of a disciplined effort by the UP bowlers.

 

Bhuvneshwar five wickets cost just 36 runs in 17.4 overs, seven of which were maidens.

 

Imtiaz Ahmed also chipped in with three scalps. Ahmed gave away 53 runs in 12 overs.

 

At stumps, Kaif (18) and skipper Suresh Raina (8) were at the crease for UP.

 

Brief Scores: Karnataka 181 all out (Manish Pandey 54, Amit Verma 52; Bhuvaneshwar Kumar 5 for 36) trail Uttar Pradesh 283 and 55 for 3 (Mohammad Kaif 18*; ) by 157 runs
