JAMMU, Nov 3: Rajasthan set a target of 395 for Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday in their Elite Group C Ranji Trophy match here on the third day of the encounter at Jaipur in Rajasthan.
After putting up 379 in the first innings, Rajasthan bundled out J&K for 204 and later declared the second innings for 219/4, putting together overall lead of 394.
J&K started from their overnight score of 186/7 but were able to add only 18 runs to their tally and eventually were bowled out for 204.
For Rajasthan, leg-spinner Rahul Chahar (5-59) starred with the ball as he picked up a five-wicket haul and spun his web around Jammu and Kashmir at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium here. In their second innings, Rajasthan opener A V Gautam top-scored with 68, while middle-order batsman Robin Bist (44) and Tajinder Singh Dhillon (49 not out) made notable contributions.
However, their first innings hero Chetan Bist, who had scored 159, fell cheaply in the second outing. At stumps on day three, J&K were 34/0, but it will be an arduous task for the visitors who need another 361 runs for outright victory.
Brief Scores: At Jaipur Rajasthan 379 and 219/4 declared (A V Gautam 68) vs Jammu and Kashmir 204 and 34/0.
