Kurnool: Hyderabad in search of the vital first innings lead, made 310 for six, in reply to Andhra's first innings score of 386 on the penultimate day of the South Zone Ranji Trophy cricket league match here on Friday.Rain played spoilsport in Hyderabad's quest as 47 minutes of play was lost towards the end of the day due to rain. Hyderabad, who are sitting pretty heading the South Zone group with 22 points, need 77 runs to overhaul Andhra's first innings total. However, a draw is enough for them to book their berth in the knockout stage. Resuming at the overnight score of 87 for no loss, Hyderabad openers A Nandakishore (53, 8x4) and Daniel Manohar (56, 7x4), despite batting at a slow pace, notched up useful half centuries and added 115 for the opening wicket. Vinay Kumar who struck a fine unbeaten 83 (9x4), while Shivaji Yadav (21 batting) kept him company at draw of stumps. Medium pacer Shabuddin claimed two wickets for 62 runs to be the most successful bowler for Andhra.Brief scores: Andhra: 386. Hyderabad: 310 for 6 (Nandakishore 53, Daniel Manahor 56, VinayKumar 83 batting, Shivaji Yadav 21 batting, Shabuddin 2/82]. In an other South Zone encounter elsewhere in Kochi Tamil Nadu in desperate need of points, were at the verge of gaining the vital first innings lead scoring 205 for four in reply to Kerala's first innings total of 206 on thepenultimate day.With just one day remaining, after second day's play being washed out, the tie was heading towards a tame draw. Kerala's hopes of the making it to knockout now depended on the outcome of Goa-Karnataka match in which Karnataka had gained the first innings lead and now required a mere 94 to win with all the ten wickets in tact. Since Karnataka were in an unassailable position, Kerala are now virtually out of the reckoning as they have only 18 points to their credit. Tamil Nadu has 20 points and five more points from this match would take them into the knock-out stage.Tamil Nadu resuming at 17 without loss, lost two wickets quickly but the third wicket pair of C Hemanth Kumar (84 batting) and J R Madangopal with an identical 84 added 168 runs to place the team on the verge of gaining the lead.For Kerala Tinu Yohannan (2/38) and Prasant Menon (2/17) shared the spoils.Brief Score: Kerala: 206.Tamil Nadu: 205 for four (Hemanth Kumar 84 batting, Madanagopal 84 batting, Tinu Yohannan 2/38 and Prasant Menon 2/17).UNI
