In reply, Arunachal Pradesh got bowled for 66 with Thokchom Kisham registering a five-fer. After gaining a dramatic first innings lead, Manipur picked themselves up and finished day 1 at 192/3.
Maharashtra took the upper hand against Chhattisgarh with Rahul Tripathi scoring his 6th first-class century. Anupam Sanklecha’s crucial 66 towards the end got them to a respectable 239 before getting bowled out. Chhattisgarh’s top three got blown away by the brilliance of Sanklecha, who picked three wickets in the remaining ten overs of the day’s play. Chhattisgarh ended day 1 at 23/3.
