Riding on a century by Rishav Das (113) and an unbeaten 80 by Sibsankar Roy, Assam put up a much-improved batting performance in their second innings to reach 269 for five while following on against Jharkhand on the third day of their Group B Ranji Trophy match.

Assam now lead by 79 runs with five wickets in hand.

Assam, who were bowled out for 126 at the end of the second day in response to Jharkhand’s first innings total of 316, started their second essay today after being asked to follow-on.

Opener Rishav scored his maiden first-class century while one-down batsman Sibsankar hit 80 as the duo shared a 157-run second wicket stand to take the team past 200-run mark.

It was left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem who broke the partnership by sending back Rishav for a well made 113 off 256 balls that included 13 boundaries.

Rishav’s departure triggered a small collapse and Assam lost three more wickets in quick succession with new-ball bowler Ajay Yadav (2/37) dismissing Amit Verma (10) and Kunal Saikia (0) cheaply, while Amit Sinha got run out.

However, Sibsankar did well to remain unbeaten at stumps.

Brief scores:

Jharkhand: 316

Assam: 126 & 269 for 5 (f/o) in 98.2 overs (Rishav Das 113, Sibsankar Roy 80 batting; Ajay Yadav 2/37).
