Orissa 85/6 against HP in Ranji

After the opening day's play was washed out because of rain without a single ball being bowled yesterday, Orissa skipper Debasis Mohanty opted to field today upon winning the toss and his bowlers reposed faith on his decision by suffocating the rival batsmen with their line and length here.

Basant and Sahoo shared four wickets between them to trigger a collapse as Himachal Pradesh lost half their side for 76 in 34 overs at the Barabati Stadium. Paras Dogra (24) was at the crease when stumps were drawn after only 37 overs could be bowled. Giving him company at the other end was R Dhawan at 2.

Brief Score:
Himachal Pradesh 1st innings: 85/6 in 37 overs (Paras Dogra 24; AK Sahoo 2/14).
