Day 2 Recap – Kerala vs Karnataka
When off-spinner Vaishak Chandran clean bowled Karnataka opener R.Samarth’s defence in the first over, the signs were ominous for the visitor. But skipper Mayank Agarwal’s classy unbeaten 87 put his side in control at the end of the second day’s play in the Ranji Trophy match against Kerala at the KCA-St.Xavier’s College ground on Wednesday.
Karnataka, in reply to Kerala’s first innings total of 342, recovered from the early loss of its opener to score 137 for two at stumps. Mayank looked comfortable against spinners and medium pacers. He resurrected the innings with Devdutt Padikkal (29), adding 89 runs for the second wicket, which wrested the initiative from Kerala.

Day 2 Recap – Saurashtra vs Andhra
Andhra batter Ashwin Hebbar’s maiden First Class century stalled Saurashtra’s progress on day two of their Ranji Trophy sixth-round clash at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Wednesday.
While Saurashtra skipper Jaydev Unadkat had hoped to restrict the opposition to 300 after the opening day, Andhra, fuelled by Ashwin’s 109 (198b, 12×4, 1×6), posted 415 in its first innings.
After adding 159, for the loss of five wickets, to its overnight total, Andhra crippled Saurashtra with early scalps before Sheldon Jackson (63*) and Arpit Vasavada (21*) led the home team to 122 for three at stumps.
Day 2 Recap – Tamil Nadu vs Assam
Pradosh Ranjan Paul (153, 212b, 16×4) and Vijay Shankar (112, 187b, 7×4, 1×6) are going through one of the best phases of their careers as they slammed their respective third centuries of the season on Wednesday.
Their tons powered Tamil Nadu to a mammoth 540 in the first innings against Assam on day two of the Ranji Trophy clash at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The home team then pressed home the advantage by reducing Assam to 120 for four at stumps.

Day 2 Recap – Delhi vs Mumbai
With its backs to the wall, Delhi is providing its stiffest resistance so far this season. Much of day two of its Ranji Trophy contest against Mumbai at the Arun Jaitley Stadium was spent establishing a foundation for a first-innings lead.
A determined if dour partnership of 195 (343b) between Vaibhav Rawal (114, 195b, 16×4) and Himmat Singh (85, 167b, 7×4, 2×6) led Delhi to 316/7 and pushed Mumbai to the backfoot and needing a lot to do to redeem itself in the second half of the tussle.
