Hiken Shah and and Rohit Sharma smashed unbeaten centuries to propel Mumbai to 325 for two against Hyderabad at the end of the opening day's play in a Ranji Trophy Group A match here today.

While Hiken was unbeaten on 154 off 260 balls, Rohit was batting on 102 at stumps.

Hiken laced his innings with 17 fours. Rohit, on the other hand, struck nine boundaries and three huge hits over the fence during his 161-ball unconquered knock.

However, the start was far from perfect for Mumbai, as electing to bat, the visitors lost Kaustubh Pawar inside the first four overs.

Hiken and wicket-keeper Aditya Tare (62) then steadied Mumbai's innings with a 121-run second wicket partnership.

After Tare's fall, Hiken was joined by Rohit at the crease and the duo toyed with Hyderabad's bowling attack to notch up the unbroken 203-run third wicket stand.

Mohammed Khader picked up Pawar's wicket while the other Mumbai batsman -- Tare -- was run out.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
