Punjab have gone into lunch on Day Three at 152 for six against Jammu and Kashmir in their Ranji Trophy 2013-14 quarter-final at Vadodra. Punjab had resumed the day on 15 for two and Jammu and Kashmir struck early and rattled Punjab early before Yuvraj Singh fostered a recovery of sorts.

 

Umar Nazir and Mohammad Mudhasir struck early along with Ram Dayal. From 15 for two, Punjab slipped to 25 for four, when Yuvraj Singh walked in and took control. However, he lost Gitansh Khera when the score was on 50. With half their side in the hut, Mandeep Singh and Yuvraj had to resurrect Punjab from the dumps.

 

In tandem, Mandeep and Yuvraj took Punjab past 100. However, when Yuvraj was on 40, he was dismissed by Parvez Rasool.

 

Brief scores:

 

Punjab 304 and 152 for 6 (Yuvraj Singh 40, Mandeep Singh 41*; Umar Nazir 2 for 58, Mohammad Mudhasir 2 for 24) lead Jammu and Kashmir 221 by 179 runs.
