Press Trust of India  |  Vizianagaram 

Skipper Saurabh Tiwary (88) and Ishank Jaggi (80 not out) scored half-centuries each as reached 251 for four against on the opening day of a Group B match here.

Put in to bat by Assam, lost their top three batsmen below 100 runs before Tiwary and Jaggi steadied the boat.

Tiwary and Jaggi put on a solid 151-run stand together for the fourth wicket to take past 200-run mark.

But just before the close of play, Tiwary was dismissed for a well-made 88 off 174 deliveries that included seven hits to the fence and a six.

At stumps, Jaggi remained unbeaten and Rahul Shukla, who is yet to open his account, was giving him company.

Brief scores:

Jharkhand 1st innings: 251 for four in 90 overs (Saurabh Tiwary 88, Ishank Jaggi 80 batting; Abu Nechim 1/28).
