Ranji Trophy Group C: Rajasthan Poised For First Innings Lead Against J&K

Jaipur: Wicket-keeper batsman Chetan Bist's 159 helped Rajasthan post a competitive 379 in their Elite Group C Ranji Trophy game against Jammu and Kashmir on Friday. After Bist's heroics with the bat, Rajasthan bowlers reduced Jammu and Kashmir to 186/7 at stumps on day two, with the visitors trailing by 193 runs at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium here.

Rajasthan began the second day from 300/3 but slumped to 379 all out courtesy a stunning hat-trick by 30-year-old pacer Mohammed Mudhasir, who returned with fine figures of 5-90. Stumper Bist slammed 24 fours in his 294-ball knock, which ended after being trapped in front of the wicket by Mudhasir. He added only 13 runs to his overnight score.

After dismissing a well-set Ashok Maneria for 59, Mudhasir took four wickets in as many balls in the 99th over. First the pacer dismissed Bist and later accounted for the wickets of Tajinder Singh Dhillon, Rahul Chahar and T M Haq, as Rajasthan slumped from 4-329 to 8-330.

On Friday, Mudhasir was ably supported by Rohit Sharma (2-69), while Umar Nazir had grabbed two wickets while skipper Parvez Rasool picked a wicket on Thursday. For J&K, Rasool played a handy knock of 47, while Shubham Khajuria and Paras Sharma chipped in with identical scores of 40.
