Chavan and Adhav send Bangladesh A tumbling
MCA XI 329 (Chavan 34, Bawne 67, Shrikande 52) and 45 for 1 lead Bangladesh A 81 (Chavan 5-27, Adhav 4-5) by 293 runs
Bangladesh A were shot out for 81 on the second day in Pune, conceding a massive 248-run first-innings lead against Maharashtra Cricket Association XI. Ranjit Chavan and Kiran Adhav shared nine wickets between them to bundle out the visitors inside 30 overs. The hosts ended the day with an overall lead of 293.
Resuming on 309 for 8, Maharashtra were bowled out for 329 with Chavan remaining unbeaten on 34. The medium pacer took the first four Bangladesh wickets to fall and the visitors were in need of repair work at 44 for 4. There wasn't much respite for them from the other end as Adhav, the left-arm spinner, ran through the tail with 4 for 5 in a six-over spell. Only three players - Rajin Saleh, Imrul Kayes and Hannan Sarkar (all internationals) - managed double figures. Chavan finished with 5 for 27.
Maharashtra lost the early wicket of Ameya Shrikandhe for 5 and ended the day at 45 for 1.
