Goa reach 312 for 5 on day three in reply to Services` 473
Porvorim: Riding on three half-centuries, Goa reached 312 for five against Services on the third and penultimate day of their Group C Ranji Trophy match here on Monday.
In reply to Services` huge first innings total of 473, Goa batsmen, especially Ravikant Shukla and Rohit Asnodkar, showed a lot of patience to help the team cross 300-run mark.
At stumps, Ravikant was unbeaten on 78 and Rohit was batting on 52.
Resuming on 64 for one, both the overnight batsmen -- Swapnil Asnodkar, starting on 17, and Amogh Desai, on 16 -- gave the hosts a good start.
Swapnil hit a well-made 74 off 225 balls, studded with seven boundaries, Desai scored a 124-ball 40. The duo shared a 78-run stand for the second wicket.
After Desai departed with the scorecard reading 122 for two, Goa suddenly found themselves reeling at 193 for five with a few quick wickets.
But Ravikant and Rohit consolidated Goa`s innings by putting on an unbeaten 119-run stand for the sixth wicket.
Ravikant`s knock came off 132 balls, laced with six fours and a six, while Rohit`s 52 was scored off 135 balls, including five boundaries.
Goa, however, have an uphill task as they still trail Services by 161 runs with five wickets in hand.
Goa: 312 for five in 117 overs (Swapnil Asnodkar 74, Ravikant Shukla batting 78, Rohit Asnodkar batting 52; Yashpal Singh 2/08).
