Shillong: After reaching his century yesterday, Rohit Shah went one better in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, today by hitting a double century, which helped take Meghalaya to a first innings score of 405 against Sikkim on the second day of their U-23 Col CK Nayudu Trophy plate group match.
Shah, who resumed his innings today on 132, added another 68 runs to reach his double ton, but fell just two deliveries later for exactly 200.
Shah’s mighty innings contained 15 fours. He received plenty of support today from captain Akash Kumar, who hit 74 lower down the order.
Kumar’s wicket was the last to fall and that left Sikkim having to face a few uncomfortable overs before stumps.
Sikkim’s openers weathered seven overs without loss and scored two runs. Meghalaya will hope to bowl out Sikkim twice without having to bat again with two days remaining in the match.
