Indore: Dec 15, 2013

 

Opening batsman Jalaj Saxena missed out on what could have been his maiden First-Class double ton by just six runs as Madhya Pradesh piled on a massive 619 for 8 declared in their first innings on the second day of their Ranji Trophy match against Saurashtra in Indore on Sunday.

 

Saxena, who resumed the day on 157, was out for 194 which he made from 302 balls with the help of 27 fours and two sixes at the team score of 397 for three.

 

Mohnish Mishra then took the centrestage as he plundered runs with some delightful strokes at a great pace. He remained not out on 158 when the innings was declared on 619 for 8.

 

Mishra faced 207 deliveries and hit 16 fours and four sixes during his unbeaten knock.

 

With wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha‘s 154 on Saturday, three Madhya Pradesh batsmen hit centuries in their innings.

 

Madhya Pradesh resumed the second day on 342 for 2, with Saxena unbeaten on 157, along with Mohnish on six. The pair added 55 more before Saxena fell just six runs shy of what would have been his maiden First-Class double century when he was caught by Bhushan Chauhan off the bowling of Jaydev Unadkat.

 

This brought captain Devendra Bundela to the crease, and together with Mishra, was able to put on 70 runs for the fourth wicket. With Bundela out on 25, Mishra enjoyed a 51-run stand with Anand Bias, who scored 39.

 

For Saurashtra, Unadkat and Kamlesh Makvana grabbed two wickets each while Abhishek Bhatt and Nayan Doshi took a wicket apiece.

 

Saurashtra had 15 overs at the end of the day and the openers did the needful, putting on 49, with Chirag Pathak and Bhushan Chauhan not out on 24 and 13 respectively.

 

The visitors now trail by 570 runs in their first innings with all the wickets intact.
