Mumbai youngster Sarfaraz Khan is simply unstoppable with the bat on the day one of round nine of the group stages fixtures of the Ranji Trophy 2019-20. The 22-year-old right-handed batsman had slammed yet another century and completed 900 runs in this tournament.

The last round of Group Stages in the ongoing Ranji Trophy has begun on Wednesday (12th February) where Group B teams Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh are facing each other in Mumbai. On the day one morning, the hosts decided to bat first after winning the toss.

Once again most of the Mumbai top-orders struggled, but Sarfaraz Khan protected the side with the opener Aakarshit Gomel. When Sarfaraz came to bat on the day, Mumbai were struggling at 72/3.  Along with Gomel, Sarfaraz handled that situation and carried the team to the good first innings total. Both of them completed centuries and settled the 275-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

Just a few overs before the stumps of the day, Gomel was dismissed on 122 runs. While Mumbai ended the day on 352/4, Sarfaraz has scored 169 unbeaten off 204 balls (22 fours and three sixes).
