Ranji Trophy: U19 WC-winning skipper Yash Dhull smashes century on first-class debut

In the ongoing Ranji Trophy Elite Group H battle, Delhi batsman Yash Dhull scored a century in his first-class debut on Thursday.

In the ongoing Elite Group H match at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati, Dhull hit a century against Tamil Nadu. Dhull, who was sent out to open, scored a century off just 133 balls, with 16 boundaries. Tamil Nadu won the toss and chose to bowl first in the ongoing match.

Dhull was dismissed by M Mohammed when he was on 97, but the ball was turned out to be a no-ball, giving the young Delhi hitter a reprieve.

Dhull had previously guided India to a record sixth U19 World Cup victory after the boys in blue defeated England in the final.

The Ranji Trophy will split into two phases. With the pre-Indian Premier League (IPL) phase set to take place from February 10 to March 15. From May 30 through June 26, the post-IPL phase will take place. This season’s Ranji Trophy will include 64 matches spread over 62 days.

Eight Elite Groups and one Plate Group are available. The Elite Groups would consist of four teams, while the Plate Group would consist of six teams. Each Elite Group will have one team qualify for the quarterfinals. The lowest-ranked of the eight qualified clubs will face the Plate Group’s top team in a pre-quarterfinal.

Saurashtra and Mumbai are squaring off in the Ranji Trophy in a high-voltage match. With Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara battling it out.
