Basant Mohanty puts Odisha in charge

Cuttack, Nov 23 : Basant Monanty's fiery bowling put Odisha virtually in control of the play as they bowled out six Jharkhand wickets within 149 runs on Saturday at end of Day 3 in the second innings after scoring 307 all out in the first innings.

Odisha resumed the day with 245/5 could add only 62 runs in remaining five wickets as right arm pacer Ajay Yadav broke the middle order taking five wickets in 61 runs. Captain Biplab Samantray, who was not out 64, could add only three runs.

Jharkhand facing a possible defeat with poor 221 runs in first innings, fumbled again by speed-star Basant Mohanty, who took all the six wickets in 63 runs. The 26-year old right arm medium pacer was incredible as he took all the wickets among the six bowlers for the hosts.

Jharkhand's rookie wicket-keeper Pappu Singh was first to show his grit scoring unbeaten 56 with nine to the fence, and then Sourav Tiwary followed him by hitting 57 runs. The others fell under single digit scores.

At the end Jharkhand were leading by 63 runs with four wickets with a full day in hand for Odisha to post the second knock.
