In the running Ranji Team Tournament at Patiala, Rourkela born Ranjeet Singh’s century played a major role to draw the match against Rajasthan and to make it memorable for years.
Ranjit Singh, a 19-year-old Right-hand batsman, has been fast-tracked into the Ranji squad following some impressive performances in first class cricket. Ranjit Singh’s heroic batting helped Odisha eke out a draw against Rajasthan after being asked to follow on in their Ranji Trophy cricket match. Stars of the day Ranjit (116) along with his partner Subhranshu Senapati (137) put together a 233-run partnership for the third wicket as both batsmen reached centuries before lunch, before both were dismissed in the space of four runs.
Odisha received a solitary point despite the fine rearguard act of their batsmen in their second innings.
