Indrajith smashes unbeaten ton for India Red
Baba Indrajith knocks a century hauling India Red to 291.


In the ongoing Duleep Trophy, Baba Indrajit smashed a hundred for India Red on the first day of the Day-Night Test fixture. His team, India Red ended the day at 291 for 9, while India Blue carried out the bowling attacks. Indrajit remained unbeaten as the overnight batsman with a score of 120. The team struck an early wobble as Ankit Rajpoot attacked the middle order, but the strong initiative at the lower order brought up the score.

Indrajith scored the runs in 181 balls. He had 12 fours and two sixes in the stretch. The player covered up the loss in the team that plummeted the inning to 123 for 5 wickets, even if the opening pair scored 70 in the partnership stand. For Indrajith, it was the fifth first class ton of his career. In the inning, his longest partnership was with Vijay Gohil, who scored 22 off 35 balls. In the after-match interview, the player said the defense was "pretty good" with Kaul and Gohil, who partnered with him. He said they gave him confidence to bring 30 to 40 runs in the stand. The player added that his intension was not to knock a century but to carry on the partnerships.

Per the player, the pink balls were better to play under lights. He told, his calculations got better as the ball became older and the lights came on. Indrajith is the top scorer in the previous Ranji season for Tamil Nadu. He scored 697 runs in the season and was made the vice-captain of the team. He said, his preparation for this ongoing season is good and he is practicing a lot. His hard work is bringing good results now. This is his maiden Duleep Trophy match. The Day Night Pink balls game is held in Kanpur. The fixture before this was at Lucknow.
