In the Ranji Trophy Final, Musheer Khan smashes Sachin Tendulkar’s 29-year-old record with a sparkling century

<p>Musheer, the younger brother of Indian cricketer Sarfaraz Khan, became the youngest player on his side to hit a century in a Ranji final when he patiently struck a century in Mumbai’s second innings of the championship match.</p>
<p>At the age of 21, Tendulkar made history by hitting a remarkable 140 against Punjab in the 1994–1995 Ranji Trophy final, which was also played at the Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai (then known as Bombay) declared their first innings at a massive 690/6 in 168.4 overs.</p>
<p>In that match, Tendulkar struck for a century in the second inning as well. Bombay was proclaimed the victors based on their lead in the first inning, and the final resulted in a tie.</p>
<p>At the age of nineteen years and fourteen days, Musheer accomplished the remarkable achievement of reaching three digits after eating 255 deliveries by taking a few runs off Vidarbha bowler Yash Thakur. It’s interesting to note that Tendulkar attended the event to see Day 3’s events as Mumbai tightened their grip on the match.</p>
<p>Musheer had a fantastic start to the year after competing for India at the ICC U-19 World Cup in South Africa, where he was a key member of his team’s undefeated journey to the championship game. He finished second in the competition with 360 runs, he was only surpassed by his skipper, Uday Saharan, who scored 397 runs.</p>
<p>Then, in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal matchup against Baroda, Musheer hit his first-ever century in the First Class and turned it into a double-ton. Mumbai was bowled out for 384 after he hit 203 off of 357.</p>
<p>Sarfaraz Khan, the older brother of Musheer, made his India Test debut last month in Rajkot and amassed two impressive half-centuries.</p>
<p>Mumbai is aiming for a 42nd Ranji Trophy championship, which would set a record.</p>
