Saurashtra 250 for 6 (Jogiyani 58, Shah 51 retired hurt) lead Rajasthan 201 by 49 runs
Scorecard

Saurashtra took a vital first-innings lead thanks to half-centuries from Sagar Jogiyani and Jaydev Shah as they ended the second day at 250 for 6, 49 runs ahead.

Jogiyani, the 21-year-old opener, brought up his fourth first-class fifty as he put up a 85-run opening stand with Kanaiya Vaghela (34) to lay a solid platform. Jogiyani's fifty came off 84 balls, with eight hits to the fence and it appeared Saurashtra would run away to a huge first innings score, but Rajasthan fought back through Afroz Khan. Khan, who finished the day with figures of 3 for 46, struck twice in succession to reduce the hosts to 109 for 3.

However, Shah put Saurashtra back on course in the second session with an 81-ball 51, before he retired hurt with the total on 164 for 3. Plucky thirties in the post-tea session from Nikhil Rathod and B Songavkar enabled Saurashtra to end the day on a good note. However, with three days left, Rajasthan can still force their way back into the game.
