Mohit Sharma sent a timely reminder to the national selectors with his second successive five-wicket haul with Haryana beating Chattisgarh by 161 runs in a Ranji Trophy encounter, here today.
The match ended in the first session of the fourth day as Chattisgarh starting the day at 50 for six chasing a target of 279 were all out for 117 in 44 overs with Abhimanyu Chauhan top-scoring with 46.
Mohit after his 5/26 against Hyderabad grabbed 5 for 27 against Chattisgarh. Looking in good rhythm, the Haryana seamer should be back in contention as far as the limited overs matches are concerned.
