In the Quarter-finals of the ongoing Ranji Trophy season, while Bengal recorded the most 50+ scores in a first-class innings history, Mumbai recorded the largest victory margin by runs in first-class cricket history.

Mumbai completely dominated in the Ranji Trophy Quarter-final

It was the Quarter-final match between Mumbai and Uttarakhand at KSCA Cricket (2) Ground (Alur). After Mumbai chose to bat first, they scored 647/8 before declaring the first innings. The dominant side had four 50+ scores in that innings, including the debutant Suved Parkar’s 252 off 447 balls (21 fours and 4 sixes) and in-form Sarfaraz Khan’s 153 off 205 balls (14 fours and 4 sixes).

Suved Parkar’s 252 runs were the fifth-highest individual score for a debutant in first-class cricket history (in an innings). He became the 24th first-class debutant to hit a double-century but only fifth among them to manage the 250+ score in an innings.

In reply, Uttarakhand were bowled out for just 114 runs. Only the opener Kamal Singh (40), Robin Bist (25) and Dikshanshu Negi (12) managed to reach the double-digit scores. Mumbai left-arm spinner Shams Mulani claimed a five-wicket haul in that innings (5/39).

In the second innings, Mumbai declared on 261/3 as they set the mammoth 795 runs fourth innings target for Uttarakhand. The top three batters managed 50+ scores in that innings, while the opener Yashasvi Jaiswal hit 103 off 150 balls (10 fours and 2 sixes).

In the fourth innings, Uttarakhand were bundled out for just 69 runs as only Kunal Chandela (21) and wicketkeeper-batter Shivam Khurana (25*) managed the double-digit scores. Five batters even failed to open their accounts in that innings.


Mumbai won by 725 runs; broke the 92-year-old record

Mumbai not only won that game by 725 runs to qualify for the semi-final of this Ranji Trophy season, but they also created a world record for the largest victory margin by runs in first-class cricket history.

The previous largest victory margin by runs in first-class cricket history was 685 runs by New South Wales against Queensland in Sydney in 1930.
