U-19 match: Odisha 65 vs Chhattisgarh 192/7

Cuttack, Nov 19, 2017 (Team OCA): 

Host Chhattisgarh took a 127-run lead with three wickets in hand by making 192 for seven, in reply to a scanty total of 65 by Odisha on the opening day of their four-day Cooch Behar Trophy U-19 Group-A match at BSP Cricket Stadium in Bhilai today.

Opting to bat after winning the toss, Odisha were all out in 22.5 overs with only two batsman reaching double figures. Rajesh Mohanty was the top scorer with a cameo 24 (12 balls, 2x4, 2x6). R Taank shattered the Odisha innings, scalping six wickets for 27 runs.

On a bowler-friendly track, as many as 17 wickets fell on the day and the home team also struggled with the bat. However, a 141-ball knock of 71 by Naved Ali and his 100-run partnership for the second wicket with S Hurkat helped them take a sizeable lead.
