Another interesting day in the domestic circuit saw 41-time Ranji Trophy champions Mumbai end with a slender advantage against Gujarat in their Group A game at the Wankhede. Maharashtra, on the other hand, find themselves in deep trouble against Karnataka as that game certainly is heading towards a result.

After getting bundled out for just 113 runs batting first, Maharashtra gave Karnataka a 73-run advantage in the first innings. Shreyas Gopal and Dega Nischal chipped in with crucial contributions for Karnataka. In reply, Maharashtra’s top order once again fell in Shreyas Gopal’s trap as they find themselves going into day 3 at 48/3 still trailing by 25 runs.

Mumbai managed to put Gujarat on hold and are favourites to win the first innings advantage. In a game where the over-rate has been pretty bad, Dhruv Raval’s fifty almost brought Gujarat close to their opponents’ first innings score, but some quick wickets towards the end saw them finish with 232/8 on Day 2.

Saurashtra hammer Baroda in the Gujarat derby

In the all Gujarat affair in Rajkot, Saurashtra batsmen hammered Baroda to a humongous first innings total. Aarpit Vasavada and Jaydev Shah notched tons as Prerak Mankad and Dharmendrasinh Jadeja chipped in with fifties, which propelled Saurashtra to 521 runs. Baroda completed day 2 at 10/0 in four overs.

Punjab are well on their way taking an innings victory against previous season’s runners Delhi. After posting 282 in their first innings, Punjab already had a 175-run advantage ahead of Delhi’s second innings. Despite Gautam Gambhir’s fifty, they could only register 106 runs for the loss of six wickets and still trail by 69 runs.

In another big game south in Chennai, Tamil Nadu took pole position in the Group B encounter against Bengal. In reply to Tamil Nadu’s 263, Bengal gave away a 74-run first inning lead to the hosts after getting bowled out for 189. Tamil Nadu finished the day in their second innings at 12/1 in 3 overs. Here are all the scores from the other games happening across the country.
