Pujara batted through the 20 overs to score a 61-ball 100 against Railways on the opening day of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

The Indian No.3 also became the first Saurashtra batsman to score a T20 hundred, surpassing his previous best- a 55-ball 81- against Jammu & Kashmir in 2016.

His hundred, however, was not enough to see Saurashtra past the finishing line as Railways successfully chased down the target of 189 in 19.4 overs.
