Sakibul Gani of Bihar notched up a triple ton to set a world record in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2022, India's premier red-ball competition that resumed from Thursday after a two-year hiatus due the pandemic. Gani has become the first batter in the history of first-class cricket to hit a triple century on debut, achieving the herculean feat in Bihar's opening round match of Ranji Trophy against Mizoram in Kolkata. Batting at number five, Gani peeled off 341 off 405 balls with the help of a mammoth 56 fours and two sixes, scoring at a brisk strike-rate of 84.20.
