Pune: Haryana were 75 for two in their second essay and will be looking to avoid an innings defeat when they take the field tomorrow as they still trail Maharashtra by 208 runs at the end of third day's play in the Ranji Trophy Group 'B' match on Monday.

In reply to Haryana's first innings total of 257, Maharashtra added 238 runs to their overnight score before declaring at 540 for 8, thereby ensuring three points for the hosts on account of the first-innings lead of 283 runs.

But with a full day to go and Haryana still needing 208 runs with eight wickets in hand to catch their opponent's score in the first essay, Maharashtra will undoubtedly be eyeing an innings defeat tomorrow.
