Jammu, February 20: Although only 6 over were bowler on bad light-hit day-one, J&K were given a sparkling start by fast-bowling duo of Mujtaba Yousuf and Auqib Nabi against Karnataka in Ranji Trophy quarter-final Thursday.

The weather disrupted the play earlier on this morning and couldn’t start till 3 in afternoon. Finally, Karnataka, after winning the toss, came out to bat first.

Auqib Nabi, opening the bowling attack, sent back Karnataka opener earlier on. Later, Mujtaba Yousuf also struck, putting the vistors on back-foot.

The breeze again created a gag, forcing umpires to call off the day. Karnataka ended day at 14-2 in 6 overs.
