K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal helps Karnataka to gain 1st innings lead against Hyderabad in Ranji Trophy

Karnataka managed to skittle out Hyderabad for 136 runs and gain a first innings lead of 47 runs on the second day of the Ranji trophy match against Hyderabad being played at Shimoga, Karnataka. Shreyas Gopal and K Gowtham were the stars for Karnataka in bowling. S Gopal picked up 5 wickets by giving away just 17 runs while K Gowtham kept the pressure on the other end by picking 3 wickets and giving away 56 runs.

K Sumanth who managed to top score for Hyderabad  by scoring 68 runs was also one among the 5 victims who fell in the spin web of S Gopal.

Although Karnataka managed to gain a first innings lead, the second innings batting of Karnataka did not get off to a good start as Karnataka lost 4 wickets by the time team score was 57 runs. But Karnataka ended the day on a good note as Karun Nair and Stuart Binny ensured Karnataka did not lose any further wicket.

Karun Nair is batting on 37 runs and Stuart Binny is batting on 26 runs, they have managed an unbeaten partnership of 70 runs for the 5th wicket.

The 3rd day action will be much awaited as the day is crucial for both the teams, especially Hyderabad as they are in a tighter spot.
