Hariesh hammers unbeaten double hundred

BANGALORE, APRIL 15. The P.S. Ram Mohan Rao (under-25) cricket trophy is in Tamil Nadu's grasp. At the M. Chinnaswamy stadium on Thursday, Tamil Nadu batted Karnataka out of the match to end the second day at a mammoth 516 for five.

Having bowled out the host for 136, the visitor had taken a firm grip on the proceedings with a six-run lead on Wednesday. Tamil Nadu piled on the agony with three huge partnerships involving J. Hariesh who remained unbeaten with a herculean effort of 226 (330b, 36x4, 2x6).

The overnight batsmen Hariesh (26) and Sunil Viswanathan (52) treated the Karnataka bowlers with scant respect. Viswanathan, who made a double hundred in the previous match against Hyderabad, looked set for another century before being trapped in front for 87 (215b, 13x4) by left-arm spinner Vinoo Prasad. The fourth-wicket partnership was worth 123.

If Karnataka smelt a chance at this juncture, it was soon dispelled as R. Prasanna joined Hariesh and sent the home team on a leather hunt. While Hariesh grew in stature with some delectable shots all round the wicket, Prasanna tore into the attack and raced to 83 before nicking Vinoo to 'keeper Vinay Uthappa.

Prasanna, who got his runs in 116 balls with 13 fours and two mighty sixes, was involved in a 187-run stand for the fifth wicket.

Hariesh, meanwhile, looking compact as ever inched towards his double century and blossomed in the company of M.R. Shrinivas to remain undefeated at stumps.

The stocky Shrinivas, who along with Vignesh had run through the Karnataka batting, survived a loud shout for leg-before against C. Raghu towards the close.

He was batting on 41 (78b, 5x4, 1x6), having raised 117 runs for the unbroken sixth-wicket stand.

Vinoo, with two for 132 in 34 overs, was the only successful bowler for Karnataka today.

The scores: Karnataka 136 vs Tamil Nadu 516 for five in 135 overs (J. Hariesh 226 not out, Sunil Viswanathan 87, R. Prasanna 83, Noorul Riaz 50, M.R. Shrinivas 41 not out).
