Ranji Trophy final: Rajasthan's Saxena hits double hundred

Rajasthan made a challenging score of 404/2 in Ranji Trophy final match on day 2 played at Played at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai with Opener Vineet Saxena scored one of the slowest double hundreds in recent times with unbeaten 207* against Tamil Nadu by stumps on friday. After scoring 221 without loss on the first day, Rajasthan's batsmen did not display any positive intent to up the ante as they added only 183 runs in the 90 overs sent down. Saxena, who became the second Rajasthan batsman after Hanumant Singh to score a double century in the final, was unbeaten on 207. But he has already consumed a whopping 555 balls during which he hit 25 boundaries and a six.
The slow approach of Rajasthan's batsmen, however, raised doubts whether their bowlers will get enough time to take 10 Tamil Nadu wickets on such an unresponsive pitch. In case Tamil Nadu bats more than 30 overs and their innings is not completed then result will be decided on run-rate. For example, Rajasthan, till now, have scored their runs from 180 overs at a rate of 2.24. If Tamil Nadu bats more than 30 overs and their innings is not completed, they will need to score runs ,at an asking rate of 2.25. 
Score Summary:
Rajasthan 1st innings 404/2 (180.0 Overs)
A Chopra 94 ( 307 Balls)
V Saxena batting 207 * (555 Balls)
Kanitkar 67 (146 balls)
