SHILLONG: Centuries from Raj Biswa and Yogesh Nagar took Meghalaya to 338/5 at stumps on the first day of the Ranji Trophy plate group match against Nagaland at the Meghalaya Cricket Association Ground here today. This is already Meghalaya’s highest score and it comes in their third Ranji match.

Nagaland won the toss and elected to field and the visitors were able to snap up three early wickets to reduce Meghalaya to 66/3. The hosts, however, were rescued by opening batsman Biswa and Nagar, who put on 231 runs for the fourth wicket.

Nagar batted with his usual flair, whacking 22 fours and two sixes in his innings of 166 from 197 deliveries.

But it was also a tremendous accomplishment for Biswa to get his ton. He reached the milestone by edging the ball down to third man for three, but there were plenty of good shots in his innings of 111, which included 12 fours. Both batsmen were dismissed in the last session of the day and Meghalaya will have Gurinder Singh (23) and Abhay Negi (1) at the crease when play resumes tomorrow.
