Saurashtra conceded the first innings lead after their batsmen failed to come good against Odisha and were dismissed for 186 on the second day of the Group B Ranji Trophy match here today.
In reply, Odisha were 62/2 after their first innings effort of 228. At stumps, Govinda Poddar (13) and Anurag Sarangi (13) were holding fort for Odisha.
It was a poor batting effort by Saurashtra, whose bowlers had done well to dismiss Odisha on the first day itself.
Skipper Jaydev Shah produced the Saurashtra's best batting effort with a 64-run that was laced with eight hits to the fence. Chirag Jani was the other notable contributor with a 45-run knock, which had four fours.
Basant Mohanty was the top wicket-taker for Odisha with figures of 4/58 in 20 overs. Suryakant Pradhan and Dhiraj Singh scalped three wickets apiece.
Saurashtra: 186 in 67.3 overs (Jaydev Shah 64, Basant Mohanty 4/58)
Odisha: 228 and 62/2 in 23 overs (Ranjit Singh 25, Jaydev Unadkat 1/13).
