New Delhi, Dec 7 (IANS) Delhi took a crucial two-run lead against Madhya Pradesh while Saurashtra were in complete control against formidable Mumbai on day two of the Ranji Trophy Elite Division matches Wednesday.

Delhi, who collapsed to 158 all out Tuesday, got Madhya Pradesh out for 156 at Emerald High School High Ground in Indore.

The hosts, resuming at 86 for six, could last for only 12 overs on a bowling friendly wicket. Ashish Nehra and Parvinder Awana continued with their good form, taking three wickets each.

Delhi were 62 for two in their second innings with Shikhar Dhawan batting on 26 and Puneet Bisht the last man dismissed on 25.

Saurashtra declared their first innings at an imposing 580 for nine in a match played in Rajkot. Bhushan Chauhan became the second centurion of the innings after Chirag Pathak’s 116 on the opening day. Chauhan scored 157 off 366 balls on a day when the Mumbai bowlers had to toil hard. Zaheer Khan bowled 21 overs for his three wickets and conceded 82 runs.

In reply, Mumbai were struggling at 19 for 2 with in-form Abhishek Nayar back in the hut for 6 runs.

Uttar Pradesh were in deep trouble after folding up for a paltry 79 in reply to Railways’ 374 at the Mohan Meakins Stadium in Ghaziabad. Former India player Sanjay Bangar took a five-wicket haul while Krishnakant Upadhyay picked up four to put Railways on top.

The hosts had lost one wicket for 18 runs while following on.

In Jaipur, Punjab saw another two of his batsman notching up fine hundreds to further stamp their authority on the game against 2010 Champions Rajasthan. Mayank Sidhana’s 122 and Amitoze Singh’s 103 pushed the score to 597 for 8 after Ravi Inder Singh (133) and Karan Goel (167) set up an ideal platform Tuesday.
