Delhi under-19 moved into a position of strength against Uttar Pradesh, thanks to a century by Gaurav Kochhar here on Saturday. Kochhar, who used a bat gifted by his idol, Shikhar Dhawan, racked up 112 not out, smashing 15 fours, most of them through covers, to help his side to 244/3 at the end of first day's play.
The hosts had lost Mohit Sharma, back from Ranji duty, quite early. However, the left-handed Kochhar, along with Raj Kaushik, frustrated the UP bowlers. Kaushik was 58 not out.
