A century from Kiran Powar brightened up the first day of play in Tamil Nadu and Goa's Ranji Trophy tie at Chennai.
Winning the toss, Goa's openers were separated early. One-down batsman Powar, however, batted resolutely, shrugging off the regular loss of partners at the other end.
Making 111 off 282 balls, with five fours and three sixes, Powar was finally out with the score on 206, being the fifth wicket to fall. No other batsman really contributed to Goa's total.
At stumps, Goa were 217 for six, with Rajesh Naik (12*) and HAS Khalid (2*) at the crease.
