Jaipur : Odisha is languishing in its first ever Ranji Quarter Final in 13 years on Sunday with opposition Gujarat in commanding position and a healthy lead of 310 runs after stumps on the third day.
With a fighting century from Samit Gohel not out at 110 and a quick 81 from Priyank Panchal, Gujarat has put a dominating total of 246/3 after the end of third day’s play.
Dhiraj Singh was the pick of the bowler from Odisha who took 2 wickets while Basant Mohanty claimed one wicket.
Earlier, Odisha crippled in front of Gujarat as it was bowled out for 199 in a reply to Gujarat’s first innings of 263. The outcome could have been worse for Odisha which was once 101/7 while two fighting 40s from Deepak Behera and Suryakant Pradhan for the seventh wicket came at the right time.
Odisha will look to bowl well in fourth day and limit Gujarat to a small score so as to make any chance in the match.
