Porel scalped four wickets against Baroda in the ongoing Elite Group B contest here at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack on Thursday. “It was a good day at office. Ranji trophy resumed after two years and it feels good to be back in the red ball cricket. The plan was to get as many wickets in the first two and a half hours; the wicket was helping the seamers. Afterwards the wicket became slow, low and flat. We didn’t get wicket at first, they put up a 41-run opening stand, we created some chances though,” said Porel after the play on Day 1 ended.
