Arjun Tendulkar hasn’t been able to keep up his good form with the bat in the Ranji Trophy. Since his memorable debut, he’s had a string of low scores. Last month, Arjun started his Ranji Trophy career with a century against Rajasthan, just like his father had done. The left-handed batsman was out for 1 in the next game against Jharkhand.
Goa had their work cut out for them against a strong Karnataka team, and Mayank Agarwal’s team lost Arjun for a duck on the first ball. He kept having trouble against Kerala, and Arjun left with a score of 6. When Arjun stepped up to bat at number 8, veteran spinner Jalaj Saxena quickly caught him in front of the wickets.
Goa was in trouble at 229/7 after Arjun’s wicket. Goa scored 311 runs, which was more than the 300-run mark. Mohit Redkar put up some resistance at the end and scored 37 out of 42 balls. Goa passed Kerala’s score of 265 runs in the first innings thanks to Redkar’s 37 runs and captain Darshan Misal’s 43 runs. This gave Goa a very important first-innings lead.
Kerala has done well in their second innings. With 110 runs, they have only lost two wickets. They could keep batting for the rest of the day and declare on the morning of the fourth day if they wanted to get a result. Kerala will only get 1 point if the game ends in a draw, but they will get 6 points if they win. Goa is ahead after the first innings, so if the game ends in a tie, they will get 3 points.
Goa is in sixth place in the points table with 3 draws in as many games. They have a total of 5 points. Kerala is at the top of Elite Group C with two wins out of three matches. So far, they have 1 draw. This season, Kerala is a strong team, so a tie would be a big boost for Goa. Sanju Samson isn’t available to play for Kerala in this match.
