Baba Indrajith faced 280 balls, hitting 20 boundaries and six sixes.

Tamil Nadu right-hander Baba Indrajith hit a fine double hundred to propel India Red to a formidable 383. In his innings of 200, Indrajith faced 280 deliveries and hit twenty boundaries and six maximums. However, none of the other batsmen stood up to the task.

It was due to Baba Indrajith’s innings that the India Reds got some respectability after being reduced to 205 for 9 at one stage. But from thereon he batted sensibly and went from one milestone to another. He was ably supported by Vijay Gohil and together they put up a partnership of 178 runs.

Apart from Indrajith, Priyank Panchal and Sudeep Chatterjee batted sensibly before being dismissed. The openers added 70 for the first wicket.

Meanwhile, as per latest updates, responding to 383, India Blue trail by 151 runs after India Red posted 383. Currently, India Blue have posted 232/3 at the end of Day 3. Skipper Suresh Raina had hit a fine fifty while Hanuma Vihari also scored an unbeaten 88. Deepak Hooda is complementing him well on 37 not out.
