Nagpur, Dec 14 (PTI): Leg-spinner Karn Sharma’s sensational eight-wicket haul on day one was not backed by the Railways batters as they conceded a 52-run first innings lead to Vidarbha after getting bundled out for 161 on the second day of their Ranji Trophy Group D match here on Wednesday.

Resuming the day on 22 for 1 in reply to Vidarbha’s 213, Railways batters fell to the guile of spinners — left-arm orthodox Aditya Sarwate (5/53) and offie Akshay Wakhare (5/60), who both came up with five-wicket hauls.

Only opener B Vivek Singh (81) could give some sort of resistance to the Vidarbha spin duo. Seven Railways batters, including captain Sharma (2) himself, were out in single-digit scores. Three of them were out on nought.

The 35-year-old Sharma, who had played one Test in 2014, had ripped apart the Vidarbha batting line-up with figures of 8/38 on Tuesday.
Vidarbha reached 161 for 2 at stumps on the second day to extend the lead to  213 and take control of the match.
Captain Faiz Fazal, who had made 112 in the first innings, was batting on 82 when stumps were drawn.
