Ajay Rohera is inching towards the first triple-ton of this season’s Ranji Trophy in Madhya Pradesh’s group B clash against Hyderabad at Indore. Mumbai’s stellar comeback in the Maharashtra derby and Gautam Gambhir inching closer to a hundred on farewell are the other news that hogged the limelight in the domestic campaign.

Legendary opener Gautam Gambhir who called it time on his career a few days ago is playing his farewell game against Andhra currently. He is off to a blazing start as Delhi finished with 190/1 in reply to Andhra’s 390. Gambhir remained unbeaten on 92 and will be eager to notch a big score before bowing out.

Resuming the day at 298/3 against Mumbai, Maharashtra crumbled on Friday and gave away momentum to their arch-rivals. Maharashtra got bowled out for 352 runs with Akash Parkar picking up a four-fer. Despite half-centuries coming from Siddesh Lad and Aditya Tare, Mumbai are on the back foot having lost five wickets for 196 runs in their first innings.

Baroda are in full command against Chhattisgarh in their Group A game thanks to a stellar century from the experienced Yusuf Pathan. The elder of the Pathan brothers smacked a 166-ball 129 and remained unbeaten as Baroda smashed 385 runs in their first innings. Chhattisgarh, who earlier got bowled out for 129, are trailing by 82 runs in the second innings.

Himachal Pradesh managed to grind Punjab into pieces in their Group B game. After posting a competitive 390 runs on the board, Himachal bowlers folded Punjab to 75/9 at stumps. Mayank Dagar, who registered a fifty with the bat earlier on day 2, chipped in with a four-fer with the ball as well for Himachal.
