Rawat and Rasool strike tons on Day 2

UP’s Mahesh Rawat and J&K’s Parvez Rasool struck centuries on the second day of the quarter-final round. Meanwhile, Karnataka’s Abhimanyu Mithun and Mumbai’s Shardul Thakur finished the day with four-fors in their respective matches.

Here is the round-up for the day:

Bengal vs Railways: After claiming the remaining two wickets in morning and wrapping up Bengal’s innings for 317, Railways were trailing by 84 runs with five wickets in hand at the end of day’s play. Wirddhiman Saha, who was unbeaten on his overnight score of 60, was sent back for 87 by K Upadhyay.

Ashoke Dinda and Shib Paul then left Railways reeling on five for 42. However, Arindam Gosh and Mahesh Rawat revived the innings and were batting on 78 and 105 respectively at stumps.

Karnataka vs Uttar Pradesh: CM Gautam was the third Karnataka batsman to return to the dressing room for 100 earlier in the day. With the lower order not making any substantial contributions, Karnataka were bowled out for 349 on the second day.

A Mithun and Vinay Kumar then wrecked the Uttar Pradesh line-up to leave them on 221 for nine at stumps. Mithun picked four, while Vinay took three and HS Sharath and Robin Uthappa picked a wicket each for Karnataka.

Punjab vs J&K: Resuming on 11 for one, Jammu & Kashmir posted 277 before being bowled out in the first innings. A century by captain Parvez Rasool helped J&K put up a decent total. However, they still ended up conceding a first-innings lead to Punjab.

The J&K bowlers then struck early to leave Punjab on 15 for two in the second innings. Punjab were ahead by 42 runs at stumps.
Mumbai vs Maharashtra: Bowling at a quick pace, Shardul Thakur claimed a four-wicket haul to put Mumbai in an advantageous position against Maharashtra.
