Akshay Takes Two Wickets, Vidarbha Struggling at 45/3 on Day 1

Surat: K C Akshay claimed two wickets to help Kerala reduce Vidarbha to 45 for three on the opening day of their Ranji Trophy quarterfinal match which was truncated due to wet outfield here on Thursday. On a day when only 24 overs of play was possible, Vidarbha lost three wickets after electing to bat.

Opener Faiz Fazal (2) got out cheaply following the start of the match after tea. Although the other opener R R Sanjay (17) and Wasim Jaffer (12) reached the double digit marks, they failed to
keep their wickets intact. At the close of play, Ganesh Satish and Karn Sharma were both batting on 7 each.

While Akshay accounted for both Sanjay and Jaffer, returning with figures of two for 14, M D Nidheesh claimed one for 12.

Brief Scores:
Vidarbha 45 for 3 in 24 overs (R R Sanjay 17; K C Akshay 2/14).
