Dhiraj, Ranjit put Rlys in trouble

By Sports reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 11 � Pacemen Dhiraj Goswami and Ranjit Mali rocked the Railways batting line-up sharing five wickets among themselves as the hosts were tottering at 115 for six at stumps in reply to Assam�s first innings total of 187.

On the second day of the four-day Elite Group Ranji Trophy match at Karnail Singh Stadium in Delhi today, Assam, resuming their innings at 174 for seven, folded their first innings at 187 after 101.4 overs of batting. Overnight�s unbeaten batsman Tarjinder Singh could just add 11 runs to his total of 34. Chasing a modest total, the Railwaymen were in trouble from the initial stage and half of their batsmen were back in the pavilion with the scoreboard reading 71. But a sixth wicket 43-run partnership between M Rawat and M Suresh enabled them to cross the 100-run mark. Earlier, Y Goud and TP Singh added 38 runs for the fifth wicket partnership after first three wickets were out for 33.

TP Singh was their top scorer with 41 off 91 balls with five hits to the fence. M Rawat (18) and M Suresh (16 n.o) were the other useful contributors for Railways. Both Dhiraj and Ranjit bowled with venom with the new ball and struck early. Dhiral got three wickets for 22, while Ranjit removed two scalps for 30. Debutant Prakash Bhagat got one.
