Day 1 of the Ranji Trophy: Abhishek Sharma and Prabhsimran Singh excel, and Himachal defeat Haryana for 46 on Day 1 of the Ranji Trophy

On the first day of the Ranji Trophy, pacers put in strong bowling performances.

But Punjab captain Abhishek Sharma and Prabhsimran Singh stood out.

On Tuesday, December 13, wicket keeper batter and Kerala captain Sanju Samson scored a fluent fifty against Jharkhand to keep India’s hopes alive.

On the first day of the new Ranji Trophy season, Samson batted and once more hit the mark, scoring 72 runs with just one stroke.

The batter hit seven home runs and four sixes.

However, Punjab openers Abhishek Sharma of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Prabhsmiran Singh of Pubjab Kings.

Put together 250 runs in the opening stand against Chandigarh in Elite Group D.

While Sharma was run out for 100 off 146 balls, Singh made 202 off 278.

Arjun Tendulkar, who played field for Goa on the first day of the Ranji Trophy, and Rajvardhan Hangargekar, who took three wickets against Delhi, made their first-class debuts.

Tendulkar is right now batting at 4 off 12 balls as Goa stand at 210/5 of every 85 overs on Day 1.

On Day 1, it wasn’t just the batters who were responsible for everything.

In Elite Group A, Himachal Pradesh defeated Haryana by 46 runs in 20.4 overs, and pacer Vaibhav Arora was the star of the show with figures of 7-2-15-4.

Siddharth Sharma helped him out, taking three wickets for 12 runs in 7.4 overs.

In the absence of Abhimanyu Easwaran, Bengal’s captain and opening batsman, the team fell to 29/4 in the Ranji Trophy today.

Easwaran is currently captaining the Bangladesh-based India A team.

Bengal had a strong start, restricting Uttar Pradesh to just 198 runs at Eden Gardens, but they were unable to control Shivam Mavi’s pace.

On the day, Mavi picked up three of the four wickets.

Brief Results at Stumps Day 1:

Kerala vs. Jharkhand: Sanju Samson (72), KER (276/9 in 90 overs); Shabaz Nadeem (3/108)

Himachal Pradesh vs. Haryana: P Chopra’s 137 runs put HP ahead of HAR’s 46/10 and V Arora’s 4/15 by 200 runs in 67 overs.

Punjab vs. Chandigarh: PUN (363/3 in 85 overs) A Sharma (100) and P Singh (202)

Maharashtra vs. Delhi: BEN (29/4 in 11 overs) Mavi (3/14) defeated UP (198/10) Porel (5/35) by 169 runs.

Shortly, Sanju Samson kept his India hopes alive by scoring a stroke-filled half century.

One of the most talked-about young batters in domestic cricket is Kerala’s opener.

Rohan Kunnummal, who earlier this year made his return to First Class cricket official by scoring three hundreds in as many innings during the 2021-22 Ranji Trophy season in Rajkot.

The 24-year-old was called up to the India A team for the Bangladesh tour after defeating hundreds in the Duleep Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy.

The management of the Kerala team must be hoping that Rohan and Sanju will perform, particularly in the absence of Rohan’s opening partner P. Rahul and Vathsal Govind, both of whom are ill.

Kerala coach Tinu Yohannan stated to Sportstar, “But we have enough bench strength to overcome their absence.”

After a few years, we have another option at the top of the list by recalling the extremely knowledgeable Rohan Prem.
