CHENNAI: Medium-pacer Rishi Dhawan's 6 for 45 came in handy for MRC 'A' to bag a lead of 19 runs over Young Stars on the first day of the third round of the TNCA first division league at SSN College ground here on Wednesday. Opting to bat, Young Stars were bundled out for 108 with Kunal Chandela making 29.

In reply, MRC 'A' were  127 for 6 in 41 overs at stumps with R Sanjay Yadav remaining unbeaten on 35. In another low-scoring game at SRMC, left-arm spinner P Vidyuth's 6 for 44 enabled IOB to dismiss Swaraj CC for 118.

But the IOB top-order failed to capatalise on the good work by Vidyut and they were reeling at 47 for 5 at stumps.
