Kannur: An impressive display by their batsmen enabled Kerala post a huge 486 against Andhra in their first innings in a Group C match of the Ranji Trophy on Friday.

In reply to Kerala's first innings total, Andhra were 42 for no loss at stumps on day two with openers Prasanth Kumar and Srikar Bharat unbeaten on 10 and 22, respectively.

Earlier, resuming on 236 for four, both Kerala's overnight batsmen -- Robert Fernandez and Sachin Baby - completed their half-centuries each.

While Fernandez scored a patient 88 off 221 balls with the help of eight fours and a six, Sachin Baby's 62 came off 146 balls, laced with four boundaries and two sixes.

Later Padmanabhan Prasanth (68) also scored a fifty, while CP Shahid (37) also chipped in with important runs.

Rishi Dhawan helps Himachal take 45-run first innings lead over Tripura

In Agartala, captain Rishi Dhawan led from the front with a well-made 67 to help Himachal Pradesh take a vital 45-run first innings lead over Tripura.

Resuming at the overnight score of 26 for one after bowling out Tripura for 141 on Day 1, Himachal batsmen too found the going tough as they lost wickets at regular intervals. If not for some determined batting from Dhawan and opener Prashant Chopra (43), it would have been difficult for Himachal to surpass Tripura's first innings total.

Dhawan struck nine fours and one six during his 95-ball knock while Chopra decorated his innings with seven boundaries. Off-spinner Viki Saha was the pick of Tripura bowlers scalping five wickets for 53 runs.

At stumps, Tripura were 93 for one in 42 overs in their second essay, thereby taking an overall lead of 48 runs. K B Pawan was unbeaten on 56 runs, while giving him company was Abhijit Dey on 20.

Subhrajit Roy (13) was the lone Tripura wicket to fall, stumped by Aatish Bhalik off leg-spinner Karanveer Singh's bowling.

Brief scores:

Tripura: 141 and 93 for one in 42 overs (K B Pawan 56 not out; Karanveer Singh 1 for 21). Himachal Pradesh: 186 all out in 61.5 overs (Rishi Dhawan 67, Prashant Chopra 43; Viki Saha 5 for 53).

Jammu and Kashmir 282 for 8 in reply to Goa's 317

In Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir were 282 for eight in their first innings in reply to Goa's 317 all out at stumps on the second day.

Resuming the day at 281 for eight, Goa could only add 36 more runs before being bowled out at the Sher-i-Kashmir Stadium. Ram Dayal turned out to be the most successful bowler for J&K with figures of five for 85.

In response, Adil Rishi (80) and Manzoor Dar (58) scored half-centuries to help J&K reach near the 300-run mark. Apart from Rishi and Dar, wicket-keeper Obaid Haroon and Manik Gupta made identical scores of 33.

At stumps, Samiullah Beigh (25 not out) and Dayal (7 not out) were the unbeaten batsmen with J&K still trailing Goa by 35 runs.
