Ranji Trophy Final Live Score: Yash Dubey hits Shubham Sharma, Mumbai on the backfoot


New Delhi. 24-year-old Sarfaraz Khan’s scintillating century helped 41-time champions Mumbai score 374 in the first innings against Madhya Pradesh on the second day of the Ranji Trophy final on Thursday. Sarfaraz played an innings of 134 runs in 243 balls, scoring the fourth century of the 2021-22 season. In reply, Madhya Pradesh made a good start by scoring 123 for one wicket till the end of the day’s play. Yash Dubey is playing 44 while Shubham Sharma is scoring 41 runs. Both have made an unbroken partnership of 76 runs for the second wicket. The highlight of the second day was Sarfaraz, who has scored 937 runs in just six matches in the current season. If Mumbai’s team bats again in this match, then they will have a chance to score 1000 runs in the season. Sarfaraz faced 243 balls in his innings and hit 13 fours and two sixes.

Sarfaraz scored more than 900 runs in this season
Mumbai lost the wicket of Shams Mulani (12) in the first over on the second day, which was leg-before by Gaurav Yadav (4 for 106). Sarfaraz taught the loose balls a lesson, which forced Madhya Pradesh captain Aditya Srivastava to spread the fielders. Sarfaraz has matured now and has been doing well since the 2019-20 (then 928 runs) season. He has also recovered from disciplinary problems early in his career that forced him to leave Mumbai for a season. The ball was moving between the clouds in the sky but Sarfaraz remained at one end on a difficult pitch for batting.

Sarfaraz scored his fourth century of the season
Despite Madhya Pradesh captain Aditya Srivastava spreading the fielders to stop the boundary, Sarfaraz hit fast bowler Veteran Agarwal for a boundary between deep extra cover and deep point. He picked up four runs in T20 style by scooping it over the wicketkeeper’s head. Sarfaraz completed his century on the score of 97 with a four over the bowler’s head while the fielders were standing at long on and long off.

Sarfaraz Khan knocks on Team India’s door
There is no place in the middle order of the Indian Test team yet, but the way Sarfaraz is batting, if in the words of head coach Rahul Dravid, he is not knocking on the door for selection in the team but is banging loudly. Sarfaraz made four short but effective partnerships. He took 40 for the seventh wicket with Tanush Kotian (15), 26 for the eighth wicket with Dhawal Kulkarni (01), 39 for the ninth wicket with Tushar Deshpande (06) and Mohit Awasthi (07) for the last wicket. Added 21 runs for it.
