His innings was laced with 16 fours and a six. The Shorey-Bhui combination added 94 runs for the third wicket. <p></p> <p></p>Shorey, however, will not add to his list of first-class hundreds as this match was not accorded that status. <p></p> <p></p>Shorey edged one to keeper Rudi Second off seamer Mthiwekhaya Nabe as Bhui looked in good touch. He hit 13 fours and a six before being adjudged leg before off leg break bowler Shaun von Borg. <p></p> <p></p>Mumbai's Siddhesh Lad (10) and Punjab's Anmolpreet Singh (32) missed out on a big score on a placid track while Ishan Kishan remained unbeaten on 17. Von Borg was the most successful Proteas bowler with figures of 3 for 62 in 17 overs. <p></p> <p></p>In the inconsequential second innings of South Africa, leg-spinner Mihir Hirwani got a couple of wickets. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief Scores: South Africa A</strong> 1st Innings 473 for 4d &amp; 62/2 (Mihir Hirwani 2/35) drew with <strong>Board President XI</strong> 397/6d in 108 overs (Dhruv Shorey 101, Ricky Bhui 91, Sanjay Ramaswamy 87). <p></p> <p></p>Result: Match drawn.
