Delhi all but out of Ranji Trophy knock-out contention after losing humdinger to Jharkhand | Cricket News – Times of India

GUWAHATI: Dhruv Shorey's counter-attacking hundred set up a fitting final hour but old warhorse Shahbaz Nadeem's second five-wicket haul enabled Jharkhand to oust Delhi from quarterfinal contention with a thrilling 15-run win in the final over of their Ranji Trophy group H encounter on Sunday. While Shorey should be credited for his superb 136 off 177 balls that kept Delhi in hunt for a tough score of 335 but they wilted under pressure during the final half an hour when Nadeem (5/83 in 31 overs) and fellow left-arm orthodox spinner Anukul Roy (2/71 in 20.4 overs) brilliantly closed down the run-scoring opportunities.

It didn't affect much as Saini (12-2-37-3) along with left-arm spinner Vikas Mishra (18-3-65-3) and two part-time off-break bowlers Lalit Yadav (13-0-46-2) and Nitish Rana (14-2-41-2) got wickets at regular intervals to deflate Jharkhand.

If Day 1 of the Delhi-Tamil Nadu Ranji Trophy clash in Guwahati belonged to Yash Dhull, the second day was owned by Lalit Yadav (177, 17x4, 10x6).

NEW DELHI: When Yash Dhull, the captain of the 2022 World Cup-winning Indian Under-19 team, walked out to the middle at Guwahati's Barsapara Cricket Stadium for his maiden outing in first-class cricket for Delhi, he had left the 'World Cup-winning captain' tag behind. He wasn't complacent. He wasn't nervous. All he wanted to do was live in the moment. Dhull, ahead of the toss, was asked to open the batting against the Vijay Shankar-led Tamil Nadu. The 19-year-old, who came to bat at No. 4 in the u-19 World Cup matches, had to deal with another challenge. But he accepted it.

Yash Dhull always knew that a smooth transition from age-group to first-class level can only happen if he is ready to counter challenges and that is precisely what worked for him on his Ranji Trophy debut for Delhi against Tamil Nadu.

Nagar sir had told me that when Ranji Trophy will come, I might be asked to open, so I should be mentally prepared,” soft-soft-spoken Dhull told PTI in an interview after his opening day exploits.
