CricketMusheer Khan breaks Sachin Tendulkar's Ranji Trophy record

Srinagar: Carrying on his red hot form from Under-19 World Cup, Musheer Khan turned out as stand out performer with the bat for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy final vs Vidarbha and in the process broke long standing record of legend Sachin Tendulkar.

Musheer Khan on Tuesday became the youngest Mumbai batter to hit a century in the final of a Ranji Trophy.

Musheer, the younger brother of Sarfaraz Khan, at the age of 19 years and 14 days, in the process, surpassed the Sachin Tendulkar, who previously held the record for 29 long years.

Musheer, who resumed on his overnight score of 51, completed his 2nd First-class century, to go with his maiden double hundred in the quarter-final against Baroda.

When Musheer completed his century and went a step ahead of Tendulkar, the Master Blaster was himself in attendance.
Tendulkar, was in attendance at the Wankhede, to see his team add another father in its cap.

Musheer and Iyer’s stand was worth 168 off 256 balls before the partnership was broken.

Musheer’s dream run also saw him score a half-century in Mumbai’s semifinal against Tamil Nadu, scoring 55. Musheer was the second highest scorer during last month’s Under-19 World Cup, with 360 runs at an average of 60, with two centuries and a fifty.
