Gujarat left-arm spinner Rakesh Dhurv picked up three wickets to restrict Rajasthan to 182 for five in their first innings on the opening day of a Ranji Trophy Group A match on Saturday.
Dhurv was the star for Gujarat, picking up three wickets for 47 runs on a low and slow pitch at the Sardar Patel stadium in Motera.
At stumps, Rajasthan captain Hrishikesh Kanitkar was unbeaten on 45 and giving him company was wicket-keeper Dishant Yagnik on 12.
Earlier opting to bat, Rajsathan lost their first four wickets inside the 100-run mark before Kanitkar and veteran Rashmi Parida (36) put on 74 runs for the fifth wicket to stabilise the innings.
Opener Sourabh Chouhan (42) also got a start but failed to capitalise on that.
