Vijays haul TN to solid position

Tamil Nadu 234 for 4 (Vijay 96, Vijay Shankar 90*, Thakur 2-31) v Vidarbha

Nineties from M Vijay and Vijay Shankar steered Tamil Nadu to a solid 234 for 4 against Vidarbha in Jaipur. The two came together at 50 for 3 and put on 140 in 50.1 overs before Vijay was out for 96. He had faced 203 balls and struck 13 fours and two sixes. Shankar and R Prasanna saw Tamil Nadu through to stumps, Shankar finishing unbeaten on 90 off 215 balls, with 11 fours and a six.

Play began an hour late because of excess moisture in the pitch, after which the seamers quickly had Tamil Nadu in trouble. Left-armer Shrikant Wagh bowled Abhinav Mukund, before B Aparajith was run-out and Ravikumar Thakur dismissed Dinesh Karthik for 4. Thakur also broke the partnership between the Vijays to end the day with figures of 2 for 31 in 19 overs.
