India Red started their campaign with a draw against India Green. Abhinav Mukund’s team batted first against India Green and posted a competitive 337 in the first innings. Nearly every batsman got a start but only Ashutosh Singh (80) could rack up a fifty and down the order was supported by Mihir Hirwani (61).
Vidharba fast bowler Rajneesh Gurbani was the star with the ball for the Red’s as his seven-wicket haul (7-81) helped his side restrict India Green to 309 despite a gritty 109 from Baba Indrajit.
In their second essay, India Red batsmen displayed admirable tenacity as Sanjay Ramaswamy (123) and Baba Indrajit (101) racked up their respective tons to end the match in a draw. They’ll now face Faiz Fazal-led India Blue, who with the likes of Dhruv Shorey, Dhawal Kulkarni and Basil Thampi consist of a potent squad and will be looking to get off to a winning start in the 2018-19 season.
