In the opening game of the Deodhar Trophy 2019/20, India B clinched a big victory against India A at Ranchi. Opener Ruturaj Gaikwad and the middle-order batsman Baba Aparajith‘s centuries helped India B to post the 300+ first innings total and that led the team to the easy victory.

After winning the toss, India A captain Hanuma Vihari decided to field first. While the India B opener Priyank Panchal scored just three runs, the next batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 31 runs. Then, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Baba Aparajith provided a strong third-wicket partnership of 158 runs. Both these batsmen hit centuries in that innings.

Among the opposition bowlers, Jaydev Unadkat (2/47) and Ravichandran Ashwin (2/40) picked up two wickets each in that innings.
