He added 43 runs with Mahipal Lomor (22 batting, 51 balls, 3 fours, 1 six).Earlier, resuming at 308 for 4, overnight batsmen Priyam Garg (53, 90 balls, 4 fours, 1 six) and ‘keeper Akshay Wadkar (44, 107 balls, 4 fours) negotiated the first 30 minutes of play rather easily and kept the scoreboard ticking.

Garg fell soon after reaching his fifty, dismissed by Aditya Sarwate.

Dharmendrasinh Jadeja (37, 54 balls, 5 fours), who joined Wadkar in the middle, played aggressively and quickly raised 51 runs for the sixth wicket.

However, he was dismissed by Wakhare for his second wicket, caught by Panchal.

The ‘Green’ innings fell apart after Jadeja’s dismissal as Vidarbha spinner Akshay Wakhare picked up two wickets while Kerala paceman Sandeep Warrier got into the act, accounting for Rahul Chahar (1) caught behind by K S Bharat and Ankit Rajpoot (0) bowled.
