Shillong, Jan 20: Meghalaya hammered Manipur by an innings and 116 runs on only the second day of their Ranji Trophy match in Mangaldai, Assam, today.

Meghalaya were all out for 235 yesterday and Manipur were 18/7 by stumps. They could not add too many runs to their overnight total and were dismissed for just 27. Guest-professional Sanjay Yadav picked up another couple of wickets to add to his four from yesterday to finish with figures of 6/12, while Abhay Negi took 4/5.

Manipur were then understandably made to follow-on but showed greater fight, though were still dismissed for 92. Yadav claimed another five-for (5/35) to end the game with match figures of 11/47. This was the third time this season that he has taken at least 10 wickets in a match. Aditya Singhania (4/30) and Purajit Mandal (1/3) were the other wicket-takers.
