Ranji Trophy: Punjab keep Haryana at bay

New Delhi, February 24

Mandeep Singh remained unbeaten on a majestic 130, while wicketkeeper-batter Anmol Malhotra also slammed a century as Punjab recovered from a poor start to post 368/5 against Haryana on Day 1 of their Ranji Trophy Elite Group F match here today.

Put in to bat, Punjab lost opener Prabhsimran Singh for a duck while skipper Abhishek Sharma (24) was also sent packing early in the match. The 30-year-old Mandeep then took charge of the proceedings en route his 14th First-Class century.

The Punjab veteran shared two 50-plus stands with Anmolpreet Singh and Gurkeerat Singh Mann (48).

No. 6 Malhotra (100 from 128 balls) gave Mandeep fine support as the duo stitched together 163 runs to take them past the 300-run mark.

Kalsi’s heroics

Ankit Kalsi scored a century as Himachal Pradesh reached 304/6 on Day 1 of their match against Tripura. Kalsi remained unbeaten on 114.

Vidarbha 270/3 vs Maha
