DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - LTH HE - —PTI

Vado­dara: Mayank Agar­wal scored a brisk 90 while Ankit Bawne hit a pa­tient hun­dred as Board Pres­i­dent’s XI scored 360/6 be­fore declar­ing against the West Indies in the warmup game here on Satur­day.

Opener Agar­wal played his nat­u­ral at­tack­ing game, hit­ting 14 fours and two sixes, but Prithvi Shaw (8) was re­moved quickly af­ter hit­ting two fours in the two-day game.

Karun Nair (29) missed a golden op­por­tu­nity to play a big knock on a flat track where BP XI play­ers main­tained a run-rate of four per over.

Shreyas Iyer (61 off 64 balls) was in the T20 mode, hit­ting five sixes, and he was es­pe­cially se­vere on vet­eran spin­ner Deven­dra Bishoo (3/104 in 21 overs), who had the last laugh when a cen­tury looked there for the tak­ing for Iyer.

Dur­ing the sec­ond part of the in­nings, Ma­ha­rash­tra bats­man Bawne showed why he is such a con­sis­tent per­former in do­mes­tic cricket with an un­beaten 116 off 195 balls with 15 fours. Bawne’s hun­dred came off 153 balls.

Agar­wal hit some lovely drives on both sides of the wicket. His half-cen­tury came off 73 balls as he added 82 runs for the third wicket with Nair.

Agar­wal and Nair were out in quick suc­ces­sion but Iyer and Bawne added 113 runs in 25.2 overs for the fifth wicket.

BP XI 360/6 decl in 90 overs (A Bawne 116*, M Agar­wal 90, S Iyer 61; D Bishoo 3/104) vs West Indies
