Irani Cup Day 1: Hanuma Vihari, Mayank Agarwal lead the charge for Rest of India


Hanuma Vihari hit 114 while Mayank Agarwal made 95 as Rest of India made 330 all out at stumps on Day 1 of the Irani Cup against Ranji Trophy champions Vidarbha in Nagpur. RoI won the toss and opted to bat against a top quality bowling attack which had overcome a formidable Saurashtra in the Ranji final last week.

Rajneesh Gurbani struck early for Vidarbha when he removed Rest of India opener Anmolpreet Singh in the 9th over of the innings. However, Agrwal and Vihari, both Test cricketers, stitched up a 125-run stand for the second wicket to put their team in a position of strength.
