Maharashtra opener Swapnil Gugale hit a century as the hosts powered their way to 298-3 against Mumbai on the opening day of their elite Ranji Trophy Group A match here yesterday. Put in to bat at the MCA International Stadium in Gahunje on the outskirts of the city, Gugale (101) and his opening partner Chirag Khurana (71) laid a solid foundation with a 146-run stand.
