Madhya Pradesh suffered an embarrassing defeat to Andhra Pradesh in their Elite Group B Ranji Trophy match on Wednesday. They were bowled out for 35 runs.
They lost six wickets in just 23 balls. MP was 35 for the loss of three wickets. However, there came a time when they were 35 for 6 and then 35/10. One of their batsman Gaurav Yadav absented himself after being hurt in the middle of the match.
Andhra Pradesh thus won the match by 307 runs ending MP’s hopes of qualifying for the knockouts.
Only two of their batsman reached the double digits – Aryaman Birla scored 12 runs and Yash Dubey made 16. Seven of the MP players made no contribution at all.
Strangely, even this isn’t the lowest ever score in Ranji Trophy. That unfortunate honour belongs to Hyderabad who were dismissed for just 21 runs by Rajasthan in the 2010/11 season.
