Mohanty's defiance in vain
Haryana v Services, Ranji Trophy Plate Final
Haryana 342 and 136 for 2 (Sunny Singh 27*, Ganda 18*) lead Service 191 Mohanty 40*, J Sharma 5-67) by 287 runs
AK Mohanty made a determined 40 not out, but there was little support from the rest of the Services lower order, and he was left stranded as his side finished with 191. Joginder Sharma, who had taken three wickets on the second day, finished with 5 for 67. Haryana then coasted to 113 for 2, 264 ahead. Chetan Sharma, their first-innings hero, made 45.
