Sambalpur: Dec 7, 2013

 

Experienced campaigner, Rajat Bhatia hit an unbeaten 158, and combined with lower-order batsmen to propel Delhi to a huge 442 all out against Odisha, who were trailing by 321 runs at the end of second day in their Ranji Trophy Group A match, on Saturday.

 

Bhatia, who resumed at 71, not only recorded his 13th first class century, but ensured that Delhi reach a commanding position by building partnerships with lower-order batsmen.

 

After early departure of his overnight partner Varun Sood (16), Bhatia joined hands with Sumit Narwal (40), raising a 65-run stand for the eighth wicket, and then rattled the opposition with his 92-run partnership with Ashish Nehra (40) for the ninth wicket.

 

Bhatia tormented the Odisha bowlers with 18 fours and two sixes in his 258-ball knock.

 

In reply, the hosts were 121 for three in with opener Natraj Behera (53) and skipper Biplab Samantray (27) at the crease. The duo has already put on a 51-run stand for the unfinished fourth-wicket stand, after losing Bikas Pati (0), Niranjan Behera (5) cheaply. Goving Poddar batted well for his 70-ball 34, before being caught behind off paceman, Parvinder Awana.

 

Brief Scores:

 

Delhi 442  (Rajat Bhatia 158*; Mithun Manhas 92; Deepak Behera 3 for 107) lead  Odisha 121 for 3 (Natraj Behera 53*; Parvinder Awana 1 for 28) by 341 runs.
