Riding on their bowlers all-round effort, Railways are all but set to secure a comprehensive outright win over Baroda in a Group A match of the Ranji Trophy cricket tournament.
Slow left-arm orthodox bowler Avinash Yadav (3/50), pacers Anureet Singh (2/67) and Deepak Bansal (2/36) and Ashish Yadav (2/29) picked up wickets for Railways to bundle out Baroda for 239 in their second innings after they resumed at the overnight score of 27 for no loss.
Deepak Hooda (98) is the lone Baroda batsman to show some fight before he was caught LBW in front of the wicket by Avinash just two runs short of a well-deserved century.
Set a paltry target of 113 runs for an outright win, Railways made strong start, courtesy openers Saurabh Wakaskar (45) and Shivakant Shukla (36 not out).
Ashish Singh (8) failed to make any impact with the bat as Railways finished the third and penultimate day at 90 for two.
