India s regular batters continued to flourish with both bat and ball. Some budding cricketers, too, pitched in with their performance. <p></p> <p></p>Let us see how Day 2 panned out for the big guns. <p></p> <p></p><b><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/manish-pandey" target="_blank">Manish Pandey</a>:</b> The middle-order batsman carried his stupendous form on Day 2 smashing his fourth First-Class double-century. His double ton came off 231 deliveries that featured 29 fours and 2 sixes. In the process to his double-century, Pandey surpassed his previous best score of 218. He was, however, dismissed for 238. He also put up a mammoth partnership with <b>Nischal Dega</b> (354), who missed his double-ton by 5 runs. <p></p> <p></p><b><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/priyank-panchal" target="_blank">Priyank Panchal</a>:</b> Gujarat s opener is back with runs. He notched up 151, 14th First-Class century, keeping Gujarat in a commanding position over Rajasthan. In the process, he built crucial partnerships with Bhargav Merai for 179. Panchal s last century (145) came against Saurashtra in the previous round. <p></p> <p></p><b>Ishant Sharma:</b> Released from the India squad, skipper Ishant Sharma proved lucky for Delhi. He claimed the wickets of top-order batsmen Ruturaj Gaikwad, MS Trunkwala and Rahul Tripathi within 4 overs, ending the day with figures of 3 for 14. <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu faced torrid time without their mainstay player Ravichandran Ashwin. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/washington-sundar" target="_blank"><b>Washington Sundar</b></a> and <b>Abhinav Mukund</b> were gone cheaply. Sundar had scored 69 and 159 in the previous two games. Meanwhile, Mukund s poor form in Ranji continued as he was gone for 5 against Madhya Pradesh. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/amit-mishra" target="_blank"><b>Amit Mishra</b></a>, though economical with his bowling, was unable to grasp wickets against Jammu &amp; Kashmir. <p></p> <p></p><b>Dhawal Kulkarni, </b>who is itching to make his entry in the Indian squad, emerged as a saviour for Mumbai. He brought up his sixth First-Class century, taking Mumbai s score to 332 against Andhra. <p></p> <p></p>Gujarat skipper <b>Parthiv Patel</b>, who is eager to lift the Ranji Trophy for the second time, carried forward the momentum after Panchal s wicket. He brought up his century and also built a crucial partnership with Merai of 174 runs.
