Murli Vijay scored a splendid century on Day One of the Irani Trophy match between Mumbai and Rest of India at Mumbai.

He shared a 144-run opening partnership with Shikhar Dhawan (63) to peg Mumbai back after captain Abhishek Nayar won the toss and put RoI in to bat.

Vijay was bowled by Nayar right after Tea for 116 after facing 206 balls. His knock was laced with 17 fours and a six. He got to his ton with an upper-cut six and a four to the long-on fence as he knocked on the doors of the selectors.
