Hyderabad: After loosening grip on Day 1, Hyderabad bowlers put up a good show in the bowling department and bowled out Delhi for 415. However, the home side’s batting unit surrendered in front of the opposition’s attack and were tottering at 194 for 8 when the stumps were drawn on the second day of their Ranji Trophy Group ‘A’ match being played here at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Delhi lost their last five wickets in quick succession as Ravi Kiran and Mehdi Hassan shared six wickets equally for Hyderabad. Later, in their first innings, Hyderabad batsmen fell like a pack of cards without troubling the scorers. However, opener Tanmay Agarwal was the lone man who showed some resistance by scoring a 159-ball 63 that included six boundaries. Saaketh (21 batting) and Pragyan Ojha (6 batting) were at the crease when the day’s play ended.

Meanwhile in Vadodara, Tamil Nadu was made to work hard in its response of Baroda’s first innings score of 309 by reaching 226 for 5 in 79 overs at stumps on day two of the Ranji Trophy Group “C” match on Sunday. Half-centuries by Baba Aparajith (59 batting, 139 balls) and Baba Indrajith 58 (120 balls, five fours, one six) helped steady the ship for Tamil Nadu after it had slipped to 74 for 3.

Skipper Abhinav Mukund, from whom a lot was expected, failed in the crunch game, falling to Dhruv Patel for just six. The other opener N Jagadeesan had been dismissed earlier, caught by Deepak Hooda off Lukman Meriwala’s bowling for 7. M Kaushik Gandhi, who was recalled to the playing XI after missing the games against Odisha and Madhya Pradesh, played with some positive intent and made 35 before falling to a catch by substitute A A Pathan. Aparajith and Indrajith came together to put on 73 runs as the visitors attempted to rebuild after the top-order failed.
