Skipper Subhranshu Senapati made a patient fifty but Ishan Porel and Pritam Chakraborty snapped three wickets each as Kolkata dismissed Odisha for 265 in their first innings in a Ranji Trophy Group A match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Wednesday. Bengal then reached 39 for 2 in 15 overs with Abhimanyu Easwaran (14) and Pritam (7) at the crease at the draw of stumps. Senapati hit a 127-ball 67 studded with nine hits to the boundary but Odisha kept losing wickets at regular intervals at the other end.
The first to go was opener Shantanu Mishra (42), who could add just one run to his overnight score, becoming the first victim of Pritam.
Rakesh Pattnaik was sent packing quickly by Ishan in 42nd over, while G Poddar became the victim of Akash Ghatak as Odisha lost half their side for 139 for 5.
Senapati added 45 with Rajesh Dhuper (15) before the latter was cleaned up by Ishan. Prayash Singh and Senapati took them across the 200 mark before the former was back to the hut in 81st over.
Eight balls later, Senapati was removed by Pritam as they were 210 for 8.
Lower-order batters Pradhan (22), Sunil Roul (24) and Basant Mohanty (15 not out) then made useful contributions to take Odisha across the 250-mark.
At both Rohtak and Nadaun, play was suspended on the second day due to bad light without a ball being bowled.
Brief Score: At Kolkata: Odisha 265 allout in 98 overs (Subhranshu Senapati 67, Shantanu Mishra 41; Ishan Porel 3/67, Pritam Chakraborty 3/59) vs Bengal 39 for 2 in 15 overs (Abhimanyu Easwaran 14; Sunil Roul 1/8).
At Nadaun: Himachal Pradesh 15 for no loss in 4.4 overs vs Uttar Pradesh.
At Baroda: Baroda 561 for 6 in 128 overs (Vishnu Solanki 179, Ninad Rathva 143, Atit Sheth 140 not out; Imliwati Lemtur 2/129) vs Nagaland 130 allout in 45.5 overs (Inakato Zhimomi 44; B Bhatt 5/40) and 19 for 3 in 7 overs (Mungkham Phom 14; Bhargav Bhatt 2/8).
Finally Some Runs For Yash Dhull, Delhi 223/5 vs Hyderabad
Young skipper Yash Dhull finally found some form going his way as Delhi reached 223 for five after bowling out Hyderabad for 355 in their Ranji Trophy Group B match in Hydearbad on Wednesday.
Back to opening the innings after missing his team’s historic win over traditional rivals Mumbai in the previous round, Dhull made 72 runs off 74 balls on the second day of the elite group game as Delhi scored at over four runs an over.
IPL star Ayush Badoni was batting on an 85-ball 78 when the stumps were drawn for the day.
It is some sort of redemption for the 20-year-old Dhull, whose nightmarish Ranji season got worse after the “sick” Delhi captain was ruled out of their clash against Mumbai last week.
Dhull’s debut season though was a successful one as he has scored 820 runs, including four hundreds, at an average of 74.54.
Thanks to consistency, Dhull was this season named skipper of the Delhi Ranji team, which also included 100-Test veteran Ishant Sharma and IPL star Nitish Rana, less than a year after he captained India Under-19 to a World Cup title triumph.
Resuming the day on 247 for four, Hyderabad were helped by Rohit Rayudu’s fine knock of 153. Rayudu was batting on 90 overnight.
Seamers Harshit Rana and Divij Mehra picked up two wickets apiece for Delhi while Pranshu Vijayran and Hrithik Shokeen bagged two each.
At stumps, Delhi trailed the hosts by 132 runs.
Brief scores: In Hyderabad: Hyderabad 1st innings 355 all out in 124 overs (Rohit Rayudu 153, Chandan Sahani 67; Divij Mehra 3/45, Harshit Rana 3/63) Delhi 1st innings 223/5 in 50 overs (Yash Dhull 72, Ayush Badoni 78 batting).
In Mumbai: Maharashtra 1st innings 384 all out in 115 overs (Kedar Jadhav 128, Ashay Palkar 66, Saurabh Nawale 58; Mohit Avasthi 5/89, Shams Mulani 3/118) Mumbai 1st innings 187/5 in 56.4 overs (Prasad Pawar 99 batting).
In Chennai: Tamil Nadu 324 all out in 142.4 overs (Baba Indrajith 66, Vijay Shankar 53, M Shahrukh Khan 50; Yuvrajsinh Dodiya 4/72, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja 3/95).
Saurashtra 1st innings 92/3 in 35 overs In Vizianagaram: Assam 113 and 62/5 in 23 overs (Lalith Mohan 2/13) Andhra 1st innings 361 all out in 112 overs (Karan Shinde not out 90, Hanuma Vihari 80, Abhishek Reddy 75; Swarupam Purkayastha 4/48)
