The fourth round of the ongoing 2019-20 Ranji Trophy- culminated after many enthralling games on Day 4 of Round 5. After many teams including Kerala and Bihar registering victories on Day 3 itself, remaining sides hustled it on the fourth day.

Maharashtra cruised to a comprehensive eight-wicket victory on Day 4 after decimating Jharkhand at a total of 311 runs. Kumar Suraj emerged as the solitary warrior for Jharkhand as he stitched a vital knock of 92 runs. Maharashtra’s Satyajeet Bachhav wreak havoc as he scalped four wickets to dismantle Jharkhand’s bowling force. He was assisted by Mukesh Choudhary, who also scalped three crucial wickets.

Meanwhile, the encounter between Tripura and Uttarakhand resulted in a draw and Manisankar Murasingh was awarded Man of the Match for his brilliant bowling performance in both the innings.

Jammu and Kashmir also cruised to the victory in the third session of Day 4 after restricting Services to a total of 146 runs.
