Haryana in command

April 01, 2005 21:28 IST

Haryana piled on the misery of Services as they took command of the Ranji Trophy Plate Division final on the third day in Gurgaon on Friday.

The hosts, who restricted the opposition for 191 in their first innings, made 136 for 2 in their second innings for an overall lead of 287 runs.

At stumps, Sunny Singh (27 not out) and Ishan Ganda (18 not out) were at the crease.

The third day entirely belonged to the hosts as they continued their good work with the bat and the bowl.

Resuming at 102 for 5, Services were immediately sent on the back foot when they lost overnight batsman Sarabjeet Singh (9) with just one run added to the total.

Wickets continued to tumble at regular intervals as Joginder Sharma completed his five wicket haul -- finishing with figures of five for 67 -- while Sachin Rana taking three for 42.

Only A K Mohanty showed some resistance as he made an unbeaten 40 to give some respectability to the total.

With a 151 run first innings lead, Haryana openers Bageshwar Bisht (37) and Chetan Sharma (45) played cautiously and ensured that they gave a good start to their team in the second innings.

Sharma, who missed his ton by five runs in the first innings, was the first to depart when he was trapped leg before wicket by Sudhakar Ghag with the team score on 82.

With two days remaining in the match, it would be an uphill task for the Services to save the match.
