Ravindra picks up six wickets

Hyderabad: Ravindra Jadeja snapped six wickets in a brilliant bowling performance as Saurashtra shot out Hyderabad for 186 to take a crucial 74-run lead on the second day of their Ranji Trophy match here on Sunday.

Jadeja ran through the Hyderabad middle and lower order with his slow left-arm orthodox bowling after off-spinner Kamlesh Makvana had claimed the wickets of both the openers Akhsath Reddy (51) and Ravi Teja (20).

Hyderabad were in a decent position at 83 for two, but Jadeja took three quick wickets to reduce the home side to 94 for five. Nayan Joshi chipped in with two wickets before Jadeja polished off the Hyderabad tail with another three-wicket spell.

Earlier, Saurashtra could add just nine runs at the expense of three wickets in 8.1 overs to their overnight score of 251 for seven to be all out for 260 in 98.1 overs.

In a Group B match, Baroda, led by Ambati Rayudu, posted a commendable 525 for seven against hosts Delhi at stumps on the second day.
