Mithun Manhas starred in Delhi's batting performance on Day One of their Ranji Trophy league match against Punjab at Amritsar.

On being asked to bat, Delhi lost Gautam Gambhir early, but minipartnerships helped the side to a total of 70/3. There then followed a 63-run stand between Manhas and Sohail Rauf before the latter fell, having made a slow 11.

Manhas then found good support in Pradeep Chawla (63) who unfortunately had to withdraw at 197/4 after being struck on the finger. Manhas went on to complete his century and was unbeaten on 112 at the close of play, with skipper Vijay Dahiya also at the crease on 10.
