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.
