Hyderabad: Saurabh Tiwary scored an unbeaten 190 as Jharkhand reached 336 for six on day two and took a healthy first innings lead over Hyderabad in their Ranji Trophy Group C cricket match here today.
In reply to Hyderabad's first innings total of 145, Jharkhand have already managed to take a huge 221-run lead by the close of play today, with four wickets still remaining.
Resuming on 31 for one, the two overnight batsmen -- Shiv Gautam and Anand Singh -- got out cheaply to leave Jharkhand reeling at 48 for three.

He also put on a solid 117-run stand for the fourth wicket with Ishank Jaggi (48) and another 131-run partnership with Kaushal Singh (54) for the sixth wicket to give the visitors an upper hand.
At stumps, Jaskaran Singh (11 not out) was giving Tiwary company.
