Dindigul (Tamil Nadu), November 1: Rajat Patidar scored a patient 110 not out to help Madhya Pradesh reach 214 for 3 against Tamil Nadu at stumps on the opening day of the Ranji Trophy Elite Group B Match here on Thursday (November 1).

The visiting team elected to bat after skipper Naman Ojha won the toss. It lost the wicket of opener Ankit Dane (4) in the second over. Dane was caught by TN captain Baba Aparajith off M Mohammed's bowling.

Opener Aryaman Vikram Birla (51, 166 balls, 6X4) and Patidar forged a 124-run partnership for the second wicket to keep Tamil Nadu bowlers at bay. Indian Test spinner R Ashwin pegged away but the two defied his skills to help Madhya Pradesh forge ahead.

Ashwin had one wicket to show for his efforts even as he kept the runs down. He conceded 49 runs in his 21 overs. Skipper Ojha, who joined Patidar after Birla's exit, displayed a lot of intent as he looked for runs. He hit two fours and two sixes in his 45 before falling to Vijay Shankar towards the end of the day's play. Patidar and Shubham Sharma (O batting) saw the team through without any further losses.
