Chennai, Dec 7, 2013

 

Tamil Nadu‘s reached 101 for three in their first innings as persistent rain resulted in only one session of play was possible on the second day of their Ranji Trophy Group B match against Baroda on Saturday.

 

Having bundled out Baroda for a meager 162 in their first innings, the hosts had a real chance of registering an outright victory but their chance was jolted because of the rain-curtailed day today.

 

At stumps, Baba Indrajith was batting on 23 and Dinesh Karthik was also unbeaten on similar score.

 

Tamil Nadu, who are placed at fifth place in Group B with four draws so far, desperately need a win. The hosts still trail Baroda by 61 runs with seven wickets in hands and two days left to force the issue.

 

Resuming on five for no loss, the overnight batsmen — Abhinav Mukund and Arun Karthik — made conscious efforts to upset the opposition spinners.

 

The duo put on 42 runs for the opening wicket before Karthik got out for 59-ball 23. Mukund was also quick to join his partner in the dressing room for a well-made 29.

 

Baba Aparajith, who began his Ranji Trophy campaign this year with a double-ton against Services and has scored at least a half-century in every game that followed, today underestimated Yusuf Pathan’s turn and was out lbw for two to leave Tamil Nadu reeling at 67 for 3.

 

However, his twin brother, Indrajith, playing in his second first-class match, displayed good footwork and in the able company of Dinesh Karthik guided Tamil Nadu to lunch without any further damage.

 

Brief scores:

 

Baroda 162 (Dhiren Mistry 68; Rahil Shah 4 for 49, R Aushik Srinivas 3 for 20) lead Tamil Nadu 101 for 3 (Abhinav Mukund 29; Yusuf Pathan 2 for 39) 61 runs.
