Former UP middle-order batsman Pravinder Singh scored his 12th first-class hundred as he prevented Hyderabad from registering an outright victory in a Ranji Trophy group C encounter, on Thursday.
Starting the day at 25 for no loss after being enforced follow-on, Tripura reached 294 for five when play was called off. Parvinder scored an unbeaten 104 off 183 balls with 14 boundaries and a six.
He was well supported by Mani Shankar Murasingh, who missed his half-century by a single run. This was after former Bengal opener Arindam Das and his partner Virag Awate (34) added 72 runs for the opening wicket and more importantly consumed 30 overs.
The match in itself was inconsequential as Hyderabad stayed at the eighth place and Tripura as usual occupied the last place in the Plate Group (C).
Brief Scores: Hyderabad 1st innings 548.
Tripura 237 & (follow-on) 294/5 (Parvinder Singh 104 no, MB Murasingh 49, Arindam Das 37). Points Hyderabad 3; Tripura
