A fine showing from Haryana's top order- including fifties from Sunny Singh and Rahul Dalal- helped them to 296 for 8 against Jharkhand in Rohtak.

With the exception of Nitin Saini who was dismissed for 8 in the fifth over, Haryana's first six batsmen all scored at least 30.

Sunny's 53 included eight fours, and he added 84 for the second wicket with Abhimanyu Khod, but Haryana were quickly pegged back by two quick wickets in the 28th and 29th overs, that left them at 96 for 3.

However, Dalal led the counterattack, putting up crucial stands of 71 and 54 for the fourth and fifth wickets with Avi Barot and Sachin Rana respectively. Dalal eventually departed for 58 - his second first-class half-century - having struck six fours, but Harshal Patel and Mohit Sharma continued the scoring, hitting a total of five fours and two sixes, that left the team on the verge of crossing the 300-run mark heading into day two.

Shahbaz Nadeem picked up three wickets for Jharkhand, and Varun Aaron and Shankar Rao picked up two each.

Karnataka 226 for 7 (Kapoor 57, Agarwal 42) v Gujarat
Scorecard

A young Gujarat attack played within its limitations to stifle and frustrate a strong Karnataka batting line-up that would be disappointed at its overall performance, given that the top order had done much of the ground work in a challenging first session.

Mumbai 252 for 6 (Lad 74, Jaffer 61, Nehra 2-16) v Delhi
Scorecard

On a wicket that aided pacers all throughout the day, Mumbai and Delhi both would be happy with the score at the end of the first day's play in their Ranji Trophy Group A league tie at the Mumbai Cricket Association's Bandra Kurla Complex facility. Or both the camps will perhaps be a tad disappointed with their efforts.

Odisha 226 for 3 (Behera 90*, Podder 74) v Vidarbha
Scorecard

Odisha's slow and steady progress took them to a comfortable 226 for 3 at the end of the first day against Vidarbha as Niranjan Behera and Govind Podder scored half-centuries. Podder scored 74 after coming in at No. 4 and Behera was unbeaten on 90, getting closer to his third first-class hundred.

Odisha had won the toss and elected to bat but the decision seemed erroneous initially when they lost both openers - Girjia Rout and Natraj Behera - to Amol Jungade within the space of eight deliveries, leaving them at 26 for 2. However, Niranjan Behera and Podder revived the innings with a stable and patient stand of 150 runs for the third wicket. While Podder scored his second consecutive fifty, which included nine fours and two sixes, Niranjan took much more time to score his 90 runs.

The partnership was broken when left-arm pacer Shrikant Wagh had Podder caught behind at the score of 176. Niranjan and Biplab Samantray carried on till stumps by adding 50 runs together, out of which 31 were scored by Samantray.
