Shankar, Indrajith drive Tamil Nadu

Vidarbha 9 for 0 trail Tamil Nadu 403 (Shankar 111, Indrajith 97, Vijay 96) by 394 runs

Vijay Shankar notched up his second first-class hundred, while B Indrajith missed his second ton by three runs, as Tamil Nadu piled on a score of 403 in the first innings of their quarter-final against Vidarbha. By close of play, Vidarbha had wiped off nine runs from their deficit.

Tamil Nadu began the day at 234 for 4, with Shankar batting on 90. The batsman raised his first-class hundred before falling to Rakesh Dhurv for 111 off 305 deliveries with 13 fours and a six. Indrajith then allied with Malolan Rangarajan to add 73 runs for the seventh wicket, lifting Tamil Nadu's chances of posting a 400-plus score.

After Rangarajan was trapped in front by Shrikant Wagh, Indrajith, in the company of A Aswin Crist and L Balaji, nudged Tamil Nadu past 400. Indrajith, however, couldn't achieve a personal landmark and was the last wicket to fall, bowled by Ravi Jangid's left-arm spin. His 97 came off 236 deliveries with 10 fours.

Vidarbha negotiated five remaining overs without losing a wicket.
