Ravi Yadav registers hat-trick on First-class debut: The left-arm debutant picked up three wickets in only his first over of the First-class career.
During a league match of the ongoing 86th season of the Ranji Trophy between Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh in Indore, Madhya Pradesh left-arm seamer Ravi Yadav registered a hat-trick in the first over that he bowled moments before stumps on Day 1.
It all happened on the third delivery of the seventh over when of Uttar Pradesh’s innings when their opening batsman Aryan Juyal (13) was out caught behind by Madhya Pradesh wicket-keeper Ajay Rohera.
In what was the penultimate over of the day, Uttar Pradesh captain Ankit Rajpoot (0) promoted himself as a night watchman. However, a sublime in-swinging delivery from Yadav left Rajpoot clueless in the middle.
A similar fate was countered by Sameer Rizvi (0) who was also found wanting against an in-swinging delivery from Yadav who became the first-ever bowler to register a hat-trick in the first over of his First-class debut.
The 28-year old player picked up his maiden five-wicket haul this morning as he dismissed Mohammad Saif (2) and Mohsin Khan (8) to register bowling figures of 16-5-61-5.
Chasing Madhya Pradesh’s first-innings total of 230, the visitors were bundled out for 216 in 53 overs after Rajpoot had won the toss and elected to field yesterday.
Coming in to bat at a score of 46/7, Uttar Pradesh spinner Saurabh Kumar played exceedingly well for his 98* (104) with the help of 10 fours and four sixes. Having gained a slender 14-run lead in the first innings, the home team would now be looking to post a formidable target for Uttar Pradesh to chase in the fourth innings.
