Karun Nair scores a double ton
The ongoing Safi Darashah All-India cricket tournament is seeing some exciting cricket from the young RCBians.
First it was KL Rahul, who put up a valuable 68 in the opening match against Jharkhand CA and doubled the celebration for KSCA XI with another thunderous knock of 197 in the match against Goa CA. In reply Saurabh Tiwary scored an unbeaten 110 for Jharkhand CA.
Karun Nair, playing for KSCA Secretary’s XI and captaining the side, went a notch higher and scored a towering 256 off 344 balls(20*4, 7*6) against the Andhra Cricket Association. Karun finished Day 1 on 60, taking his team to a comfortable 138/1 at the end of day’s play. His double ton took KSCA Secretary’s XI to 479 for 9 in 119 overs after which they declared the innings. Andhra CA could manage only 12 runs when rain interrupted play.
