New Delhi: Dec 15, 2013

 

A collective effort by Tamil Nadu‘s seam trio of Lakshmipathy Balaji, Jagannathan Kaushik and M Mohammed helped them reduce Railways to 152 for eight after scoring 246 in their first innings in a Ranji Trophy Group B encounter at the Jamia Milia Islamia ground in New Delhi on Sunday.

 

Railways still need 95 runs to take first innings lead but Tamil Nadu taking the last two wickets and getting a first innings lead to ensure three points and a safe passage into the quarter-finals.

 

The trio of Kaushik (three for 35), Balaji (two for 24) and Mohammed (two for 39) kept a tight leash on Railways batsmen as they could manage only 152 runs at an average of 2.41 per over.

 

Actually, it is the ninth wicket partnership of 51 runs between left-hander Karn Sharma (50 not out) and Krishna Kant Upadhyay (12 not out) that helped them cross the 150-run mark after being reduced to 101 for eight inside 50 overs.

 

Earlier, Ramaswamy Prasanna (117) completed a well-deserved century as Tamil Nadu’s tail-enders provided stiff resistance to take the score closer to 250.

 

In-form Anureet Singh got another five-wicket haul as he took five for 67 in 35 overs to take his season wickets tally to 28.

 

Brief scores:

 

Tamil Nadu 246 (R Prasanna 117; Anureet Singh 5 for 67) lead Railways 152 for 8 (Karn Sharma 50*; Jagannathan Kaushik 3 for 35) by 94 runs.
