All-rounder Manan Sharma and tail-ender Vikas Tokas engaged in a 72-run stand for the ninth wicket to ensure first innings lead and atleast three points for against in a group B encounter, here today.

With top guns like (6), Gautam (22), (0) and Rishabh Pant (29) being dismissed cheaply, were down and out at 178 for 8 at the start of the 58th over.



In the next 23.5 overs, Manan and Vikas played with a lot of grit and determination to deny Vidarbha, what they saw as an opportunity to get three points and then push for victory.

Manan in fact surpassed his previous best score of 81. He has so far played 119 balls to hit 9 boundaries and a six off a half-tracker bowled by leg-break bowler Azhar Sheikh.

Credit to Tokas as he hung in there for 88 deliveries to give him the support that he needed.

Flavour of the domestic season Rishabh Pant (29) showed some discretion initially by defending but even his 29 had 22 runs in boundaries -- four fours and a huge six over mid-wicket off Lalit Yadav's bowling.

En route his innings, Pant also crossed the personal milestone of 900 runs in a season and is ahead of his rivals with 903 runs in his kitty.

But Lalit, who can work up decent pace got better of the burly Pant when he tried to pull a short delivery which went up for glovesman Wath to complete an easy catch.

Nitish Rana (27) and Milind Kumar (37) did the hardwork only to throw away their wickets.

But the knock was a timely one for former cricketer Ajay Sharma's son, who has had a pretty ordinary season with the ball.

It is the paucity of quality spinners and Manan's ability to get a few runs down the order has been the reason for his extended run in the team. His innings has put right back in the game and and his men would now like to go all out for another six points.

Brief Scores: 183 all out

1st Innings 250/8 (Manan Sharma 82, Rishabh Pant 29, Vikas Tokas 28, Rajneesh Gurbani 4/76).
