Lahli: All-rounder Stuart Binny tormented the East Zone batsmen with his controlled swing bowling as they lost as many as 14 wickets with South Zone marching towards a comprehensive innings victory at the end of second day in the semi-final of the Duleep Trophy.

Starting the day at 236-9 South's first innings ended at 264. The South bowlers then came out all guns blazing to skittle East for a paltry 84 as Binny was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4-24 from 13 overs.

With a huge lead of 180 runs, South decided to enforce the follow-on but East didn't fare any better in the their second essay tottering at 30-4.

Binny again turned out to be the wrecker-in-chief as his dibbly dobbly swing bowling got him 3-7 in five overs.
