It was one more day of Tamil Nadu’s dominance towards (*2*)Chhattisgarh of their Ranji Trophy conflict on the Nehru Stadium in Guwahati on Friday.

Continuing from his in a single day rating of 101, Aparajith — within the firm of M Shahrukh Khan (69, 8×4, 2×6) stored Tamil Nadu’s scoreboard ticking with a 125-run fifth wicket stand in 177 deliveries. Shahrukh performed an entertaining innings with drives, reverse sweeps, pulls and higher cuts earlier than being bowled by left-arm spinner Sumit Ruikar (4-168) for 105-ball 69. His knock contained 8 fours and 2 sixes. Despite dropping N Jagadeesan (0) run out off the very first ball he confronted — Aparajith marched on with photographs throughout the bottom. Aparajith added 42 for the seventh wicket with Sai Kishore (19, 3×4) that took Tamil Nadu’s whole previous the 400-run mark. Aparajith’s 267-ball knock ended when he was caught by Harpreet Singh at covers off Ruikar. M Mohammed (18, 1×4, 1×6) and Siddharth (6 n.o.) acquired some beneficial runs earlier than the declaration was made.
Unlike the Chhattisgarh bowlers, the Tamil Nadu assault stored issues tight from the beginning. Siddharth and Sai Kishore didn’t enable the Chhattisgarh batsmen any freebies. The two accounted for openers Akhil Herwadkar (11, 2×4) and Sanidhya Hurkat (6, 1×4) and medium-pacer Mohammed acquired rid of Ashutosh Singh (9, 1×4) to go away Chhattisgarh on 40-3 within the 18th over.

However, Sai Kishore had Amandeep caught by Indrajith at slips earlier than Siddharth acquired rid of Ruikar — trapped leg-earlier than — to deliver Tamil Nadu again into the competition.
