Andhra trail by 262 runs with 8 wickets remaining in the 1st innings against Jammu and Kashmir in the Group C of Ranji Trophy 2016-17. However, on Day Two at Brabourne Stadium, Jammu and Kashmir’s tail-enders scored vital runs to take the team to 334. Ram Dayal, Samiullah Beigh and Umar Nazir Mir added as many as 80 runs and took the team out of the woods. All the same, Shubham Khajuria scored 90 off 238 on Day One, including 8 fours and 2 sixes. Struggling at 150 for 4, it seemed Jammu and Kashmir would be bowled out for a paltry total. Full Updates: Ranji Trophy 2016-17, Round 3, Day 2

All-rounder Parvez Rasool scored 45, while Bandeep Singh churned out a blistering 63 off 201. Be that as it may, it’s the tail-enders’ vital contribution that put the team in a commanding position on Day Two. On the other hand, Andra’s Duvvarapu Siva Kumara and Bhargav Bhatt picked up a four-wicket haul each. In reply, Andhra openers Srikar Bharat and Prasanth Kumar added 41 runs for the 1st wicket, before the former holed out Umar Nazir’s delivery to Rasool. Bharat was dismissed for 24. Nonetheless, Prasanth was knocked over by Rasool’s peach of a delivery.

With Hanuma Vihari and Bhargav Bhatt at the crease, Andhra are 72 for 2.
