End Ranji Trophy, Madhya Pradesh vs Mumbai Day 2 Report: Sarfaraz’s Defiant Century Propels Mumbai To 374, MP Makes a solid start -by Ecork

Sarfaraz Khan completed his transition from Mumbai cricket resident ‘terrifying enfant’ to ‘Friday Man’ with the best hundred keeping his team ahead of Madhya Pradesh at the end of the Ranji Trophy, here on Thursday. Courtesy of Sarfaraz’s fourth quarter of the season – 134 off 243 balls – the 41-time champions managed a 374 fight in their first innings after starting the day at 248 for five.

But Madhya Pradesh will not be very happy as they finished the second day at 123 for one with Yash Dubey (44 batting) and Shubham Sharma (41 batting) adding 76 runs for the second unbeaten wicket.

The day was none other than Sarfaraz, who has won an incredible 937 games at the Ranji Trophy in just six games and could be up to 1000 for that time if Mumbai wins this tournament again.

Ranji Trophy final Day 2 Highlights – Madhya Pradesh vs Mumbai

His innings included 13 boundaries and two big sixs — one on a four-footer off left-hander Kumar Kartikeya and one down ground off-spinner Saransh Jain.

But what came out was how he managed the innings after Shams Mulani was trapped in the leg before Gourav Yadav (4/106) at the start of the second day.

His batting with the tail reflects the new development he sees, which is guaranteed to be a gift for Mumbai Cricket. He opted for loose deliveries for the border, forcing MP Captain Aditya Shrivastava to open the site.

The way Sarfaraz has changed a corner from the 2019-20 season (928 runs then) is surprising as he has had disciplinary issues early in his career, which also forced him to leave Mumbai for a while.

With Naushad Khan’s father, who also doubled as his coach, making him make 400 balls (almost 67 overs with netting and beating) in one day in practice, Sarfaraz 2.0 is a tough guy war, ‘khadoos street fighter’ of any warlord. would like to go to war as well.

As soon as he reached his fifties, he touched the lion’s seat on his robe, indicating ‘Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere’.

His batting is not as pleasing to the eye as that of Prithvi Shaw but very effective. Your batting is convincing. You know how to score those runs on a single track that is very two-dimensional and in extreme situations with football doing more right.

When the MP skipper turned the field to join the border, he still found his way to the controlled square cut seamer Anubhav Agarwal, which bisected the two fielders standing in deep extra cover and deep point to the wall.

After entering the 90s, he scooped a T20 projector on the headboard while partially blinding and not fully balanced.

It was a sight worth tears.

At 97, MP skipper Shrivastava put all his yards to the border line with two standing tall and long.

The ploy was not good enough to stop Sarfaraz as he thumped one on the bowler’s head that went to the border.

The celebration is a celebration of war and history. There were refreshing tears flowing after she had done what she had decided to do.

The midfield of the Indian Test team is also in the mix but the way Sarfaraz is batting, to put it in the words of coach Rahul Dravid, not only knocking but knocking the selection door down.

Sarfaraz participated in four small, but very effective, partnerships which could prove to be a decision if the match turned out to be a sexual one of a few innings.

He scored 40 for the seventh wicket with Tanush Kotian (15), 26 for the eighth wicket with Dhawal Kulkarni (1), 39 for the ninth with Tushar Deshpande (6) and 21 other unbeaten games for the final wicket with Mohit Avasthi (7). ).

At that time, he became the last batter of Mumbai to survive, making sure the total was good enough for his defenders to defend.


But there are serious signs as MP batters have seen a sharp drop so far and Mumbai’s bowling line has not been very effective, saving Tushar Deshpande’s direct delivery to Himanshu Mantri pads (31). PTI KHS NI AT
