Manoj Tiwary-led India A  started their tour of Australia, on a strong note. Naman Ojha’s double century (250 ball 219) and captain Manoj Tiwary’s 83 helped India to post a competitive 475 for nine in the first innings of their first four day match at Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

 

According to IANS, a splendid unbeaten double century from Naman Ojha put India A in a commanding position against Australia A on Day 2 of their first four-day match at the Allan Border Field. Wicketkeeper-batsman Ojha guided his team to 475/9 declared with an innings of 219 not out before the visitors snapped six Australia A wickets to end the day with the home side reeling at 126/6.

 

Resuming the day at 304/6, the visitors found runs flowing in quickly. Ojha, resuming from 82 not out, brought up his century with a six. His brisk 99-run partnership with Dhawal Kulkarni ended when Kulkarni holed out for 33 off the bowling of Cameron Boyce (4/146).
