Shocker: Himachal Pradesh bowled out on a score 36 in Ranji Trophy!
Himachal Pradesh cricket team set another low in Ranji Trophy as the team was bowled out for a mere total of 36 in the fourth round of Ranji Trophy 2016/17. The first day of the game was halted due to rain in Guwahati and only 4 overs were bowled on day 1 with Himachal losing 2 wickets in that short moment
Hyderabad bowlers laid a perfect base on the second bowl of the second day coming up with more wickets thereafter. The debacle continued till Hyderabad bowlers packed Hyderabad batting on a total of 36 as none of the batsmen was able to stick his foot on the crease. A total of 5 batsmen had ‘0’ implanted in front of their names, Nikhil Gangta was the highest run scorer for them with a tally of 8 runs across his scoreline. At one stage, they were on verge of breaking the record of lowest score in a Ranji Trophy as 5 of their batsmen were back in changing room on a score of 18. However, Rishi Dhawan and Sumit Verma shared 12 runs amongst themselves to edge past the lowest score in Ranji Trophy.
The moment it looked like Rishi Dhawan will play a captaincy innings here, he disappointed getting out to the newly introduced bowler Akash Bhandari.
Despite being introduced late in the innings, Akash Bhandari emerged as the highest ticket taker for Hyderabad taking 4 wickets at cost of 0 runs. He ended the inning with figures of 3-3-0-4.
Surely, this is a big disappointment for a team like Himachal Pradesh as the team has many young players who dream to play for the country but a performance like this are nothing but a cry. They are already placed in Group C of Ranji Trophy and innings like this will add more to their woes.
