Riding on brilliant batting efforts by Mayank Tehlan (200) and Rajat Bhatia (106), hosts Delhi amassed a massive 249-runs first innings lead against Baroda on the penultimate day of the Ranji Trophy Super League Group 'A' match at Ferozeshah Kotla on Monday.

Baroda, who came up with a disappointing batting effort on the opening day, were 35 for no loss in their second innings at close of play with openers Rishikesh Parab and left-handed Connor Williams surviving the akward 16 overs.

Earlier, in reply to Baroda's first innings total of 244, the Delhi batsmen complimented the admirable job done by their bowlers to rattle up a massive 493.

Twenty-year-old Tehlan was a picture of concentration during his 542 minute stay while recording his highest first-class score, with a knock that comprised 27 boundaries.

Involved in a superb 149-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Tehlan was Bhatia who sustained his fine run of form to notch up his second century in three matches.

Resuming at 256 for 3, Delhi kept up a steady run rate that also has given their bowlers with enough time to force an outright win.
