Oct 30, 2014

India A openers took attack on the Sri Lanka bowlers and took the team to a big total of 381 for six  in the stipulated 50 overs. The main contributors to the total were Rohit Sharma(142), Manish Pandey ( 135*).

The openers put up 95 in a mere 12.5 overs before Chand fell to Lahiru Gamage for a 42-ball 53; but the carnage had only just begun, as Manish Pandey joined Rohit. Both men reached hundreds, and Rohit even looked all set for a double-hundred before Gamage ran him out. Rohit’s 142 came off a mere 111 balls, while the pair added 214 in 166.
