AK Sarkar took Vohra’s wicket after the skipper posted 200 off 313 balls, studded with 24 boundaries and 2 sixes.

Mahajan, on the other end, continued to trouble Tripura bowlers with his batting skills. He posted an unbeaten 162 off 213 balls, with 24 boundaries and one six, before the umpire stopped the play due to bad light.
