The contest between Hyderabad and Haryana at Jamshedpur’s Keenan Stadium went to Haryana’s favour on Day Three, Round 2 of Ranji Trophy 2016-17. After winning the toss, Hyderabad captain Subramanian Badrinath chose to bat first, looking to put a big total on the scoreboard. All the same, the decision backfired as they could post as many as 191 runs, thanks to B Sandeep and Sumanth Kolla’s fighting knocks. Meanwhile, it was Haryana leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal who picked up 6 for 44, catching the opposition in trance. In reply, Haryana top-order made sure they dent opposition’s spirit by pursuing proper Test cricket. On the other hand,

In what turned out to be a one-sided competition, Rajasthan won their Round 2 match against Assam by an innings and eight runs on the day three of the Round 2 of the Ranji Trophy 2016-17. Mahipal Lomror of Rajasthan was adjudged Man of the Match for his excellent batting in the first innings wherein scored 89 runs of 242 deliveries which included 11 boundaries which enabled Rajasthan to put a decent total of 272 in the first innings. Rajasthan initially won the toss and opted to bat first and this decision was well backed by their blowers as they bundled up the side of Assam for just 195 wherein Rishav Das played a lone warrior’s knock of 93 wherein Rajasthan bowler Pankaj Singh took 5 for 39.

Rajasthan had kind of a similar start to their first innings as their batsmen could not capitalise on the start that they got off to in their individual innings. But it was Lomror who displayed some gritty batting as he was the standout performer for his team and also the only batsmen to get beyond the 50 runs mark. The second best score for Rajasthan was by Ashok Maneria who scored 44. Arup Das remained the pick of the bowler for Assam as he picked up 4 wickets and finished with the figures of 26-8-53-4.  When Assam came out to bat in their second innings they first had to surpass the deficit of 77 runs that Rajasthan had pulled over them. But Assam again got off to a disastrous start as none of their batsmen could score runs at all. Aniket Choudhary and Pankaj Singh destroyed the Assam batting order as they got 5 and 4 wickets respectively. Choudhary finished with the figures of 10-3-35-5 while Pankaj Singh finished with the figures of 10.2-4-26-4 taking his total tally of wickets to 9 in this match.

Himachal Pradesh edged past Kerala by 6 wickets in Round 2 of Ranji Trophy 2016-17, at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. After winning the toss, Himachal Pradesh captain Rishi Dhawan invited Rohan Prem-led Kerala to bat first. The track, however, assisted seam bowlers and the match turned out to be low-scoring yet a thrilling one. Dhawan, leading from the front, scalped as many as 4 wickets, conceding 66 runs at an economy of 2.18. Meanwhile, Sachin Baby scored a snail-paced 61 off 209 balls in the first innings. All the same, what commendable was that he batted for 294 minutes to guide his team to 248.

Baroda were in firm control of their Ranji Trophy 2016-17 match against the defending champions Mumbai, as by the end of the third day, they had an overall lead of 303 runs. In their second innings, Baroda were 321 for 5 after 86 overs, with the right-handed dashing batsman Deepak Hooda leading their charge with a solid 66 not out. Hooda, who has established himself as an explosive batsman in the Indian domestic circuit, has so far faced 75 deliveries and cracked 6 boundaries to power his side against the strong Mumbai outfit. Delhi reached 376 for 5 in their reply to a mammoth total posted by Maharashtra at stumps on Day Three of their ongoing Ranji Trophy 2016-17 match, which is being played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The pitch at the venue where even the Indian national team has been at the receiving end more often than not has been a belter as the batsmen from both the teams have made merry. It began with Maharashtra producing an unbelievable display of batting, with their captain Swapnil Gugale and Ankit Bawne coming agonisingly close to world record stand for any wicket in First-Class cricket, which belongs to the Sri Lankan duo of Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara. Chattisgarh are well ahead in the race against Andhra Pradesh in Round 2 of Ranji Trophy 2016-17. After Andhra Pradesh invited Mohammad Kaif-led side to bat first, Amandeep Khare scored a blistering 143 off 270, studded with 19 lovely boundaries. To add to the fire, middle-order batter Abhimanyu Chauhan scored 123 to take his team to 394. Scoring runs at

After Andhra Pradesh invited Mohammad Kaif-led side to bat first, Amandeep Khare scored a blistering 143 off 270, studded with 19 lovely boundaries. To add to the fire, middle-order batter Abhimanyu Chauhan scored 123 to take his team to 394. Scoring runs at rate of 3.11, Chattisgarh had an extra time to bundle the opposition twice. The track at Kalyani’s Bengal Cricket Academy Ground was sporting enough to offer equal assistance to batters and bowlers. Meanwhile, Duvvarapu Siva Kumar’s four-for kept the struggling Andhra Pradesh on course.

Tripura were in complete command against Services at stumps on the third day of their Ranji Trophy 2016-17 encounter. In their second innings, Tripura were placed at a very strong position of 280 for 1, with their overall lead being 322 runs in the Group C match of the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2016-17. Even if the game ends in a tame draw, the Tripura team is set to earn some crucial points as they had taken a lead in the first innings of 42 runs. In their second innings, Udiyan Bose and former World Cup winning India Under-19 cricketer Smit Patel slammed centuries to help their side gain complete command.
