Punjab bundled out for 74

New Delhi: Delhi captain Gautam Gambhir’s dogged insistence of playing on a seaming track was vindicated once again as the hosts bowled out Punjab for just 74 runs in on a fog-hit first day of the Ranji Trophy group A encounter here on Sunday.

Yuvraj Singh (0) might have got a debatable lbw when he had plonked his front-foot forward by a fair distance but most of the other batsmen looked incapable of handling the controlled seam bowling from Nehra (4/31).

Meanwhile, Parthiv Patel cracked an unbeaten 109 in 166 balls to power Gujarat to 287 for three in their first innings at stumps against Odisha.
