Rohtak: Jharkhand bowlers rose to the occasion and bundled out Haryana for a meagre 81 on the opening day of their four-day Group C Ranji Trophy encounter here Monday. For Jharkhand, medium pacers Ajay Yadav (4-24) and Rahul Shukla (3-24) wrecked havoc on the opposition batsmen and they were ably supported by former India speedster Varun Aaron (2-21).

The trio shared nine wickets among themselves, while Haryana skipper Mohit Sharma was run out. Choosing to bat after winning the toss, Haryana were 3-51 at one stage, but then slumped to 81 all out in just 41.3 overs.

Their opener Shubham Rohilla top scored with 36 and Himanshu Rana chipped in with 25. Apart from these two, the rest of the batsmen faltered against some superb bowling by Jharkhand pacers.
