Andhra in trouble again

December 10, 2007 20:59 IST

A fine six-wicket haul by medium pacer MP Arjun left Andhra tottering at 72 for six in their second knock against Hyderabad at the end of second day's play in the Ranji Trophy Super league Elite Group-B match in Hyderabad on Monday.

Arjun claimed six wickets for just 25 runs in Andhra second innings, though he missed his hat-trick. In the eighth over, Andhra were reeling at eight for four.

Earlier, Hyderabad, resuming at overnight 52 for 5, were bundled out for a paltry 132, conceding a 27-run first innings lead to Andhra.

Arjun Yadav, the lone fighter, was finally bowled out for 49. Shinde (21) was the other chief contributor.

Andhra medium pacer Kalyana Krishna picked four wickets, while his new ball partner Vijaya Kumar claimed three.
