Jadhav hammers triple century

Pune, Nov 10, 2012, PTI:

Kedar Jadhav knocked the stuffing out of Uttar Pradesh bowlers en route to his monumental 312-ball 327, which powered Maharashtra to a mammoth 738 for five in their Group ‘B’ Ranji Trophy match here on Saturday.

At stumps, skipper Rohit Motwani was batting on 146 off 242 deliveries, and Nikhil Paradkar (1) was giving him company.

Resuming on overnight 102, the 27-year-old Jadhav smashed as many as 54 boundaries, 34 of them coming on the day, and two sixes during his 524-minute vigil at the crease.

The hosts had started the day on 339 for three at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium.
During his knock, he shared 314 runs for the fifth wicket with Motwani, before adding 231 runs for the fourth wicket with Ankit Bawne (78 off 141 balls).

During his 322-minute stay in the middle, Motwani found the fence 21 times.
Such was the Maharashtra batsmen’s onslaught that all the frontline Uttar Pradesh bowlers conceded more than 100 runs, with India leg-spinner Piyush Chawla conceding 233 in his 51 overs. He, though, picked up three wickets, including that of Jadhav.
Medium pacer Imtiaz Ahmed went for as many as 186 in his 40.

If Friday was difficult, Saturday was even worse and there was not respite in sight for the visiting side which is coming off after winning its opening Ranji encounter against Delhi.

Laxman slams ton

The stylish right-hander, who is leading the side after quitting international cricket, stroked his way to a fluent 120 as the hosts recovered from early blows to post a respectable 341 all out in 114.3 overs. Hanuma Vihari gave good support to his skipper with 114.

MP were reeling at 44/3 in response at close on day two.
