Ranji Roundup: J&K's Khajuria scores ton as Mumbai falter again

Jammu and Kashmir opener Shubham Khajuria compiled his maiden first-class century before former champions Mumbai bounced back to dismiss the visitors for 254 in the first innings on day two of their four-day Group A Ranji Trophy cricket match today.

J&K could take just 18-run first innings lead.

But before close of play, J&K hit back again to reduce the 40-time champions to a miserable 66 for four in the second innings, ahead by only 48 runs with two days left.

Medium pacers Ram Dayal, who picked up three wickets in the first innings with his disciplined bowling, bagged two more in the second, while fellow-seam bowler Umar Nazir claimed the other two Mumbai wickets.

At stumps after an absorbing day's play, Mumbai captain Suryakumar Yadav (17) and night watchman Dhawal Kulkarni (1) were at the crease with seasoned Wasim Jaffer, who suffered a hairline fracture while fielding, left to bat.

 Ranji Roundup: J&Ks Khajuria scores ton as Mumbai falter again

In the morning Khajuria, who began the day on 47 with teammate Bandeep Singh (34) in an overnight team score of 88 for one in reply to Mumbai's paltry 236, saw his partner depart in the fourth over.

But Khajuria continued his good work to reach his century with a six over long on off Vishal Dabholkar.

He was run out for a well-made 107 off 215 balls after a six-hour vigil during which he struck four sixes and 12 fours.

His dismissal triggered a dramatic collapse as J&K lost eight wickets for the addition of just 51 runs, including the last five for one run, to be dismissed for 254.

The visitors, sitting pretty at 203 for two soon after lunch when Khajuria was run out by a direct hit at the striker's end stumps, folded up at the stroke of tea with their last five wickets polished off by Mumbai's left arm spinners Dabholkar (3/30) and Iqbal Abdullah (2/47).

Dabholkar took three wickets for one run in nine balls. He also took the wicket of second-best scorer Ian Chauhan (70), who along with Khajuria add 98 for the third wicket.

Mumbai could even have taken the lead if they had held on to their catches. Khajuria was let off on 69 by Dabholkar and on 104 by Jaffer, while Obaid Haroon was also reprieved. (PTI)
