Here’s how Twitter reacted:

After being put into bat, Andhra Pradesh posted a total of 379, thanks to centuries from Ricky Bhui and Karan Shinde.

Bhui (149) and Shinde (110) steadied Andhra after captain Vihari was retired hurt.

However, both were dismissed in the space of five runs, which sparked a batting collapse.

Vihari was eventually dismissed on 27.

For MP, Anubhav Agarwal bagged four wickets, while Kumar Kartikeya and Gaurav Yadav picked up two wickets apiece.

Meanwhile, Avesh Khan and Saransh Jain also scalped a wicket each.
