Ranji Trophy: Odisha need 148 to beat Haryana
TNI Bureau: The Ranji Trophy match between Odisha and Haryana has taken an interesting turn with both sides trying for an outright victory on the last day of the match. Chasing a victory target of 148, Odisha finished Day 3 at 60/3.
Haryana batted very well in the second innings after a dismal first innings score of 66. They scored 300, thanks to Abhimanyu Anil Khod (74) and Jayant Yadav (66). Basant Mohanty, who had taken 4 wickets in the first innings, dismissed 4 batsmen in the second innings. Alok Mangaraj too took 4 wickets.
While chasing 148 to win, Odisha lost Sandeep Mulia, Natraj Behera and Biplab Samantray with 60 runs on board. While Haryana will try to attack more to bowl Odisha under 148, it would be a testing time for the Odisha batsmen, who are chasing the glory. Odisha had scored 219 in the first innings.
