Hyderabad: A Ashish Reddy picked up four wickets for Hyderabad before Sheldon Jackson's 67 helped Saurashtra finish the first day of their Group A Ranji Trophy match at 251 for seven on Saturday.
Electing to bat, Saurashtra were off to a poor start, losing Chirag Pathak early. Sagar Jogiyani followed suit while Ravindra Jadeja fell some time later to leave the visitors struggling at 66 for three in the 30th over.
Bhushan Chauhan and Jaydev Shah did the recovery act with a 52-run stand for the fourth wicket. However, both fell for identical scores of 47.
