Anshul, Yashpal tons put Services in control

November 17, 2012 19:24 IST

Anshul Gupta and Yashpal Singh scored unbeaten centuries to guide Services to 277 for three against Tripura at stumps on the opening day of their third round Ranji Trophy Group C match in Agartala, on Saturday.

While Anshul ended the day unbeaten on 112 off 211 balls, Yashpal remained unconquered on 110 which came off 191 deliveries.

As matter of fact, both Anshul and Yashpal decorated their innings with identical 14 boundaries and two sixes.

However, the start was far from rosy for Services after electing to bat as they lost their first three wickets -- Pratik Desai (30), skipper Soomik Chatarjee and Soumya Swain -- with the scoreboard reading just 66.

Thereafter, it was all Services as Anshul and Yashpal joined hands to forge the unbroken 211-run fourth wicket partnership to deny any more headway to Tripura bowlers.

Brief scores:

Services 1st innings: 277 for three in 86 overs (Anshul Gupta 112 not out, Yashpal Singh 110 not out; Rana Dutta 1/39) vs Tripura.
