After shinning with the ball,

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja's unbeaten 178 helped

Saurashtra to take first innings lead versus Railways on the

second day of their Ranji Elite Group A match here Tuesday.

Courtesy Jadeja's knock, Saurashtra lead Railways by

144 runs after they ended the Day 2 at 344/8.

After electing to bat, Railways were bundled out for a

meagre 200 with skipper Mahesh Rawat top-scoring with 46.

For the hosts, Jadeja, a left-arm spinner (4-58), did

most of the damage.

And Jadeja did not disappoint with the bat too.

After Saurashtra's top-order failed, left-handed

Jadeja took the centre-stage at Saurashtra Cricket Association

Stadium, hitting 16 fours and four sixes in his 326-ball stay

at the crease so far.

He hammered a listless Railways attack and completed

his 100 off 216 balls and 150 in 285 balls, respectively.

Jadeja found an unusual partner in number 9 Kamlesh

Makwana who made 62.

The duo frustrated the Railway bowlers, but Makwana's

stay at the crease was cut short by Harsh Tyagi.

Saurashtra's hopes of increasing the lead now solely

depend on Jadeja, who will be eyeing a double-hundred.
