Guwahati: Dec 31, 2013

 

Left arm spinner Akshay Darekar scalped six wickets to help Maharashtra bundle out Assam for a meagre 152 and take a massive 209-run first innings lead in their Ranji Trophy Group C match, on Tuesday.

 

In reply to Maharashtra’s first innings total of 361, the hosts fell for 152 as Darekar finished with impressive figures of six for 53, while Shrikant Mundhe chipped in with three for 17.

 

Assam kept losing wickets at regular interval even as Darekar and Mundhe wreaked havoc. Niraj Patel was the only batsman who managed to show some resistance, top scoring with 40.

 

Maharashtra, in their second innings, reached 16 for no loss with openers Harshad Khadiwale (0) and skipper Rohit Motwani (10) at the crease when the stumps were drawn.

 

Earlier, resuming on 343 for eight in their first innings, Maharashtra could add just 18 runs in the morning by losing two wickets in the process.

 

Brief scores:

 

Maharashtra 361 & 16 for no loss (Rohit Motwani 10*) lead Assam 152 (Niraj Patel 40, Amit Sinha 20; Akshay Darekar 6 for 53, Shrikant Mundhe 3 for 17) by 209 runs.
