Musheer Khan Shatters Records: Youngest Mumbai Batter’s Century Reigns Supreme in Ranji Final

In Tuesday’s match at the Wankhede Stadium against Vidarbha, Musheer Khan showcased an exceptional performance, hitting a hundred in 255 balls. This achievement not only marked his first century in the Ranji Trophy final but also made him the youngest Mumbai batter to achieve this feat, surpassing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.

After securing a 119-run lead in the first innings, Mumbai faced early setbacks in their second innings as openers Prithvi Shaw and Bhupen Lelwani departed quickly on Day 2. However, Musheer, alongside skipper Ajinkya Rahane, steadied the innings, taking the score to 141 for two by the end of the day, with both players notching up half-centuries.

On Day 3, Musheer continued to accumulate runs, forming crucial partnerships with Shreyas Iyer after Rahane’s dismissal at 73. Musheer’s century, achieved in the 90th over, marked his second First-Class hundred in three matches. His impressive form follows his double century in the quarterfinal match against Baroda, where he became the second-youngest Mumbai batter to accomplish this milestone, trailing behind Wasim Jaffer.

At 19 years and 14 days old, Musheer has broken Tendulkar’s record as the youngest Mumbai batter to score a century in the Ranji final. Tendulkar, who achieved this feat just before his 22nd birthday, had scored twin centuries in the 1994-95 season final against Punjab, leading Mumbai to victory. Interestingly, Tendulkar himself witnessed Musheer’s achievement from the stands at the Wankhede Stadium.Golden State Warriors Display Potential in Dominant Win over Bucks, Lakers Struggle with Injury Concerns

Mumbai, with a remarkable record of 41 Ranji Trophy titles in 47 finals, are on course to clinch another championship in their 48th final. On the other hand, Vidarbha, playing in their third Ranji final, had previously secured back-to-back titles between 2017-19.

The Khan family has been enjoying a series of successes lately, with Sarfaraz earning his maiden Test cap and Musheer representing India in the Under-19 World Cup 2024 in South Africa, where he emerged as India’s second-highest run-scorer, amassing 360 runs at an average of 60.00.Golden State Warriors’ Dominance Over Bucks and Potential Playoff Showdown with Clippers: A Resurgence and the Blake Griffin Factor
