Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja's double century for Saurashtra against Jammu and Kashmir in Rajkot, along with 150s from Madhya Pradesh wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha against the 41-time champions Mumbai in Indore and Tamil Nadu's Washington Sundar against Tripura in Chennai make the headlines in the day 2 round-up of the 2017-18 second round matches.

Starting from an overnight score of 150, Jadeja wasted no time as he reached the double-figure mark quickly before he was eventually out for 201. Thanks to his knock and a 156-ball 181 from Sheldon Jackson, Saurashtra managed to post 624/7 in the first innings to which, the visitors were reeling at 103/4 when the day came to an end. 

After bundling out Tripura for 258 in the first innings, Tamil Nadu batsmen came out all guns blazing as they ended day 2 at 332/2, with a first-innings lead of 74 runs. In the absence of Murali Vijay, Washington Sundar was asked to open the innings and the teenager did a fantastic job as he remained unbeaten on 156 off 223 balls with 14 fours and one six. Abhinav Mukund scored 76 while Baba Inderjith remained unbeaten on 73. Indian off-spinner took two wickets for 64 runs in the Tripura innings.

Ishant Sharma's fiery spell of 3/12 in 11 overs reduce Railways to 58/5 in reply to Delhi's 447 in the first innings. Bengal's Mohammad Shami took two wickets for 33 runs while his teammate Wriddhiman Saha got out for 27.
