Tweets of the day








According to IANS, medium pacer Shardul Thakur took six wickets to help Mumbai bowl out Uttar Pradesh for 206 in their first innings on the second day of the Ranji Trophy match at the Green Park stadium in Kanpur Monday while Yuvraj Singh’s 136 lifted Punjab to 370 for eight against Maharashtra in Pune.

Uttar Pradesh had Sunday scored 115 for one but managed to add only 91 runs as right-armer Shardul demolished the hosts’ top-order. He made most of the early morning conditions and removed overnight batsman Prashant Gupta (41) in the first delivery of the day. He continued his assault and dismissed Umnag Sharma (0) and other overnight batsman Tanmay Srivastava (67) as the batsmen guided moving deliveries to wicketkeeper Aditya Tare.

Kshemal Waigankar supported Shardul well, picking up two wickets of Piyush Chawla (11) and Praveen Kumar (4). At the stumps, Mumbai also were in a spot of bother as medium pacer Amit Mishra removed openers Sushant Marathe (3) and Braviush Shettry (7) early before Ankit Rajpoot dealth another blow to the visitors by dismissing seasoned Abhishek Nayar (9). Mumbai are trailing by 164 runs.

At the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune, veteran all-rounder Yuvraj hit 25 fours and a six to put Punjab in a commanding position. After his team was reeling at 54/3, he forged a 112-run partnership for the fourth wicket with opener Jiwanjot Singh (68) and later stitched another 112-run stand with Gurkeerat Singh (57). Gitansh Khera (37) and skipper Harbhajan Singh (31) also came up with useful contributions.

At the Ferozeshah Kotla here, Delhi rode on good scores by Unmukt Chand (batting 87) and Virender Sehwag (64) to reach 201 for three against Rajasthan. At the close of play, Unmukt and Mithun Manhas (batting 34) were at the crease.
