Gujarat ride on Patel's double ton

New Delhi: Abhinav Mukund hammered a century for Tamil Nadu, Rohit Sharma continued his great form with an unbeaten 55 off 59 balls and Gujarat's Niraj Patel hit an unbeaten double century against Delhi, in the second round of the Ranji Trophy Elite Division matches on Friday.

Patel was unbeaten on 228 after batting for close to nine hours, and hit 32 fours and two sixes as Gujarat amassed 520 at the Sardar Vallabhbahi Stadium in Valsad. Delhi were wobbling at 118 for three with only India under-19 captain Unmukt Chand holding one end. Unmukt was batting on 72 at the end of the day's play.

In Chennai, Mukund scored a brisk century and put on 88 with fellow-opener Murali Vijay (33) and 81 with Kaushik Gandhi (18) for the unbroken second-wicket stand.

Hyderabad's slide in the national championship continued as they lost their Plate Division match to Maharashtra by an innings inside two days after being shot out for 54 runs in the second innings at home. Maharashtra fast bowler Akshay Darerkar claimed eight wickets for 20 runs to run through the Hyderabad innings.

Ambati Rayudu, playing for Baroda, cracked a fine century against Madhya Pradesh who fought back in their second innings to make 176 for two, after being shot out for 63 on Thursday.

Uttar Pradesh opener Tanmay Srivastava put in a dominant performance and carried his bat through to score a solid 175 in his side's total of 362 against Sauraashtra.

Rajasthan were all out for 530 against Mumbai, as skipper Hrishikesh Kanitkar, unbeaten on 129 overnight, went on to make 141.

In Delhi, Karnataka who scored 347 in their first innings forced Railways to follow on after dismissing them for 134. Karnataka's left-arm spinner Kotarangada Prabhu Appanna returned with figures of five for 39.

Gitansh Khera's cameo of 47 allowed Punjab to finish with 255, and surpass Orissa's first innings total of 251.
