Kerala ended the second day of their South Zone Ranji Trophy match against Karnataka, trailing by 68 runs with seven wickets in hand in the first innings at the Nehru stadium in Kochi on Thursday. Replying to Karnataka's first innings total of 236, Kerala were 168 for three.
Resuming at 231 for seven, Karnataka were dismissed for the addition of only five runs. Medium pacer Tinu Yohannan bagged three wickets for 61 whereas Sunil Oasis and Suresh Kumar picked up two each.
Kerala scored at about two runs an over in making a confident reply before play was called off an hour early due to bad light. Prashanth Menon was the top scorer with a steady 63. He faced 123 balls and hit seven fours and a six. Dodda Ganesh picked up two of the three wickets. Sunil Oasis (30), having been dropped twice, had Ajay Kudua (17) batting at the crease when play was halted.
