Hyderabad post 341 for four on day two against J&K

Jammu: Centuries by D Ravi Teja (153 not out) and Hanuma Vihari (109) steered Hyderabad to 341 for four on the second day of their Ranji Trophy Group C match against Jammu & Kashmir at the Gandhi Memorial Science College Ground here on Monday.

There was no play possible on the first day yesterday because of rain but once the game started today, the visitors laid a solid platform.

Put in to bat by J&K, Hyderabad got off to a good start despite losing opener TL Suman (9) cheaply.

Akshath Reddy and Ravi Teja shared a 87-run stand for the second wicket before the former fell for a well-made 49 off 87 balls with 10 hits to the fence.

Vihari joined hands with Ravi Teja and the duo punished the bowling during their 203-run stand for the third wicket.

Vihari was eventually dismissed for 109, having struck 18 fours, while Ravi Teja remained unbeaten on 153 with 17 fours and two sixes.

At stumps, Amol Shinde (4 not out) was giving Ravi Teja company at the other end.

Brief scores:

Hyderabad 1st innings: 341 for four in 84 overs (D Ravi Teja batting 153, Hanuma Vihari 109) v Jammu & Kashmir.
