India ‘A’ in command
Friday 05 October 2012

India ‘A’ consolidated its position in the second unofficial Test, amassing over 550 runs and then reducing New Zealand ‘A’ to 198 for five on the second day of the match.

After Mandeep Singh and Ashok Menaria’s big centuries propelled India ‘A’ to a mammoth 554 for eight declared in 118 overs, Vinay Kumar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took two wickets apiece to leave the host trailing by another 356 runs at the Bert Sutcliffe Oval.

Resuming at 433 for four, Mandeep missed out on what would have been a well deserved double century by just seven runs.
