Suved Parkar, playing in place of Ajinkya Rahane, scored a double century on debut, repeated the coach’s charisma after 28 years

New Delhi. The quarter-final matches of Ranji Trophy are being played, in which Mumbai is facing Uttarakhand. Today is the second day of this match and Mumbai has reached a very strong position. Mumbai has scored more than 500 runs in the first innings. Two batsmen played an important role in getting Mumbai across this score. One was Sarfaraz Khan, who scored the third century of this season and got out after scoring 153 and Suved Parkar was the second batsman. He got a chance to play in this match in place of injured Ajinkya Rahane and on his first class debut, this batsman created history by scoring a double century.

Suved became the second batsman to score a double century for Mumbai on his first class debut. Before him, this feat for Mumbai was done by Amol Majumdar in 1994 i.e. 28 years ago. Then he scored a double century on his first class debut against Haryana while playing for Mumbai. He was out after scoring 260 runs.

Interestingly, Amol is currently the coach of the Mumbai cricket team and when Suved achieved this feat, Amol also became a witness to it. The record of playing the biggest innings on first class debut is in the name of Sakibul Ghani of Bihar. He played a record innings of 341 runs on debut against Mizoram in the league stage of the same season of Ranji Trophy.
