Chandigarh, November 18
Balraj Singh came up with a fine double ton and Tejvir with a century to help hosts Chandigarh gain the commanding position over Tripura during the second day of the Cooch Behar Trophy being held at the Sector-16 cricket stadium.
The duo raised an unbeaten 253-run partnership to help the hosts declare their innings at 491/6.
Balraj was unbeaten at 200 off 445 (with 33 boundaries), while Tejvir posted 153 off 148 (studded with 25 boundaries and one six).
