It was another enthralling day in Ranji Trophy full of quality cricket and individual heroics. Let’s take a quick view on some of the best moments from Day 2 of the Round-6 matches.

Wadhera with his maiden 200

Punjab had a terrible start against Madhya Pradesh on Day 1 as they were 47 for 4 at one point but a 250 runs stand between Anmolpreet Singh and Nehal Wadhera came to the rescue, taking Punjab total past 300 at the end of Day 1. Anmolpreet got out after scoring his century but Wadhera, continuing on 123, started Day 2 by smashing MP bowlers all-round the park. He scored his maiden double century before lunch and made Punjab post 443 in the first innings.

Shankar, Ranjan hit tons vs Assam

Tamil Nadu’s Vijay Shankar and Pradosh Ranjan Paul continued their hot form with the bat against Assam, scoring their third centuries of the season on Day 2. Pradosh continued with his overnight score of 99 and reached triple figures in the morning session and got out after scoring 153. Shankar at the other end, continuing with his overnight score of 53, went on to score his third consecutive century and helped Tamil Nadu post a massive 540 in the first innings.

Sarvate’s fifer goes in vain

Vidarbha’s Aditya Sarwate bagged a magnificent five-wicket haul on Day 2 to restrict Gujarat to 256. Vidarbha had a horrible first day with the bat as they got bowled out for just 74 in the first innings. Sarvate kept Vidarbha alive by bowling Gujarat early on Day 2 and Vidarbha were aiming to bat long in the second innings. But Siddharth Desai of Gujarat had other plans and did major damage, taking 6 wickets to bowl out Vidarbha for 254. Gujarat is now left with a comfortable task of chasing 67 runs on Day 3.

Akash's 5-wicket haul stifles Haryana

Bengal pacer Akash Deep scalped five wickets against Haryana and helped Bengal to take a massive 256-run lead after the first innings. Earlier, Bengal posted 419 in the first innings, thanks to a magnificent 145 from veteran batter Anustup Majumdar. Akash Deep then got Bengal off to a great start, removing Haryana’s top-three before Tea. The 26-year-old then went on to take his second five-wicket haul of his first-class career and helped Bengal bowl out Haryana for just 163 before Stumps.

Delhi put Mumbai on the back-foot

After restricting Mumbai to 293, Delhi got off to a rusty start on Day 2 and further lost in-form Hrithick Shoukeen before Lunch. Skipper Himmat Singh alongside Vaibhav Rawal started to rebuild the innings. The duo added 190 runs for the fifth wicket with Vaibhav scoring his third first-class century. Delhi went on to finish the day with 316 for 7 on the board with a lead of 23.
