Dindigul: After humbling big boys Mumbai in their opening encounter, Jammu and Kashmir failed to weave their magic once again as they lost to Tamil Nadu by 277 runs on the third day of the Group A Ranji Trophy cricket match, here on Tuesday.
Chasing a mammoth 409 for a win in the four-day encounter at the NPR College Ground, the Parvez Rasool-led side were shot out for 131 as TN left-arm spinner Aushik Srinivas bagged five wickets.
J&K opener Shubham Khajuria top-scored with 60 runs as the visitors could only last 44 overs in their second innings.
The match was surely dominated by the hosts from start to finish as the Ramaswamy Prasanna-led side outplayed the J&K team in every department.
TN, who had already got the upperhand after J&K were skittled out for 132 in reply to the first-innings score of 254, improved their batting show the second time around to bag six points.
Resuming Tuesday on 199 for one, overnight centurion Abhinav Mukund finally finished on 137 and stitched a second-wicket 124-run partnership with Baba Aparajith (73).
Dinesh Karthik also contributed a valuable 24 not out as medium-pacer Umar Nazir Mir picked up two wickets.
Tamil Nadu 254 and 286/5 dec in 69 overs (Abhinav Mukund 137, Baba Aparajith 73; Umar Nazir Mir 2-42)
Jammu and Kashmir 132 and 131 (Shubham Khajuria 60, Ian Dev Singh 31; Aushik Srinivas 5-12, Rahil Shah 3-64).
