Andhra resumed their innings from the overnight score of 47 for 1. Prasanth and Vihari batted close to 76 overs and added 240 runs for the second wicket. Vihari, 23, was solid in his approach and remained unbeaten. In fact he batted throughout the day and crafted an unbeaten 144. The skipper, who averages in excess of 55 in First-Class, went on to add another 100 runs for the third wicket with Bhui. The return of Bhui from a shoulder surgery has boosted the Andhra batting line-up as they find themselves in a commanding position. Earlier, Andhra had won the toss and the Day One was completely dominated by Andhra pacers Vijay Kumar and C Stephen, who claimed 4 and 3 wickets respectively to bundle out Tripura for a paltry 171.

Before the start of the match, two minutes of silence was observed before the commencement of play in memory of K R Desai, founder Secretary of the Balsad District Cricket Association (BDCA).

At the moment Andhra looks set for an outright win with an innings. Before the start of this round, they were at No.3 spot in Group C and a dominating win can take them to the top spot, something they will eye.

Brief score:

Tripura 171 (Bunti Roy 34; Vijaykumar 4 for 56, C Stephen 3 for 47) trail Andhra 377 for 3 (Prasanth Kumar 129, Hanuma Vihari 1448; Gurinder Singh 2 for 92) by 206 runs.
