When the stumps were drawn on the second day at the Bansi Lal Stadium, Haryana were 62 for no loss in their second innings.
Replying to Haryana's meager first-innings total of 112, Rajasthan were all out for 279 easily managing to take the crucial lead.
Ashok Menaria (47), Puneet Yadav (46) and Siddharth Dobal (43) were the main contributors for Rajasthan.
Though none of the Rajasthan batsmen could make it big after getting the starts, the 30s and 40s helped the side in getting past the host total and swell the lead. Medium pacer Mohit Sharma was the best bowler for Haryana, returning impressive figures of five for 56. Ashish Hooda and Harshal Patel picked up three and two wickets respectively.
At close of play, Nitin Saini (42) and Chaitanya Bishnoi (20) were going strong at the crease. Rajasthan resumed their innings at overnight 75 for one and barring a couple of useful partnerships, kept losing wickets at regular intervals.
