After ending the opening day at 298/8, the Rest of India lost their last two wickets in no time, adding just 10 runs to their overnight score. Left-arm spinner Parth Bhut finished the innings with a five-wicket haul for the Ranji champions. He bowled with perfect pace variations with dark patches helping him out at fuller lengths.

In reply, Saurashtra lost both openers to Vidwath Kaverappa, who got swing and movement off the wicket with tight lines to get a nick from the opening duo. Samarth Vyas (29) and Cheteshwar Pujara (29) stood tall for the next 24 overs, stitching a 47-run third-wicket partnership.

However, the duo lost their respective wickets to Pulkit Narang and Saurabh Kumar in the gap of a few overs. Later, Sheldon Jackson followed the cue for just 13 runs off 12 balls. At 77/5, Saurashtra was staring down the barrel.

With the wicket getting increasingly difficult for batters to play, Arpit Vasavada joined hands with Prerak Mankad and the duo forged a 47-run partnership for the sixth wicket. Arpit went on to score 54 runs off 127 balls before getting out to Saurabh Kumar.

At the end of Day 2, Saurashtra were 212/9 in 80 overs with Kaverappa, and Saurabh Kumar bagging three wickets apiece. With uneven bounce and sharp turns, it's going to be tough for the Ranji champions to move forward on Day 3.
