Chennai: Mumbai skipper and all-rounder Abhishek Nayar slammed a century (113) to help his side make 284 all out in the allotted 90 overs against Punjab in the final of the Buchi Babu Memorial Cricket tournament here on Sunday.

The pair added 95 runs for the third wicket in 28.1 overs.

Left-hander Abhishek hammered 12 fours and two sixes in his 247 minute stay at the wicket. He faced 165 balls.

Later, Vikrant Yeligetti chipped in with 34.

Punjab’s leg spinner Rahul Sharma claimed four for 85 in three spells, while medium pacer Love Ablish took 2 for 39.
