The New Year kick-started with some record-breaking and mind-boggling stuff in the Ranji Trophy. The third day’s action saw the likes of Vidarbha and Baroda register big wins in their respective fixtures as Punjab also managed to bag a much-needed bonus-point win against Kerala.

Wasim Jaffer’s brilliance in the first innings helped Vidarbha post 511 runs, which was enough to annihilate 41-time champions Mumbai. After getting bowled out for 252 runs in the first innings, Aditya Sarwate picked up six wickets in the second innings (follow-on) and Mumbai stumbled for 113 runs. Vidarbha thus won by an innings and 146 runs.

Krunal Pandya had an outstanding game with bat and ball, scoring centuries in either innings and picked up an aggregate five wickets. After getting a 113-run first innings lead, Baroda stuttered badly in the second innings, but Pandya’s 104 helped them post a 271-run target. Railways, eventually got bowled out for 171 runs and surrendered by 164 runs.

Record-breaking stuff from Meghalaya leaves jaws dropped

Meghalaya equaled the fifth highest total in Ranji history, notching a whopping 826 runs in their first innings for the loss of seven wickets. Puneet Bisht scored a triple ton (343 off 332 balls), whilst Yogesh Nagar, Raj Biswa and Gurinder Singh slammed hundreds. Sikkim enter the final day trailing by 535 runs in the second innings.

After gaining a crucial 96-run first innings lead, Punjab went on to register a significant bonus point win against Kerala. Mohammed Azharuddeen’s century helped Kerala post a 128-run target for the North Indian side, that chased the total down with relative ease. Shubman Gill once again impressed with a fifty in the run chase.
