Ranji Trophy Group A Round-up: Reddy's Ton Keep Hyderabad Afloat Against Delhi

Hyderabad: Opener Akshath Reddy (107) hit a much-needed century as Hyderabad grabbed a slender 23-run lead after being asked to follow-on by Delhi on the penultimate day of their Group A Ranji Trophy match here on Monday.

Resuming at an overnight score of 194/8, Hyderabad lost their remaining two first innings wickets with the addition of just 11 runs as Delhi, who had scored 415 in their first innings, enforced a follow on.

In their second essay, Hyderabad produced a better batting display with opening duo of Tanmay Agarwal (42) and Reddy (107) sharing a 98-run partnership. Agarwal was dismissed by Vikas Mishra with substitute fielder Unmukt Chand taking the catch in the 35th over.

Reddy and K Rohit Rayudu (61) then forged a 115-run partnership before the opener was removed in the 70th over by Lalit Yadav. At the draw of stumps, Rayudu and BP Sandeep (8) were at the crease with Hyderabad reaching 233/2 in their second innings.

Earlier, Kulwant Khejroliya and Vikas Mishra completed a four-wicket haul each after picking up one wicket apiece in the morning.
