Ranji Takeaways: Iyer Eclipses Pandya Comeback, Milind Scores Another Ton

It was a day of comebacks in the Ranji Trophy, with all-rounder Hardik Pandya returning for Baroda and a number of India A players turning up for their respective teams. Here are the major takeaways from the 1st day of the sixth round of games.

Shreyas Iyer Slams Ton; Hardik Picks Two on Comeback

Hardik Pandya took the new ball for Baroda against Mumbai but it was Shreyas Iyer who roared back to form in stunning style, slamming 178, while skipper Siddesh Lad scored 138 to help Mumbai reach 439/7 at stumps. Pandya took three wickets, removing both the openers and ended with figures of 3/74.

Milind Piles on the Runs; 22 Wickets Fall in a Day in Plate Division

Milind Kumar continued to pile on the runs for Sikkim, scoring his fourth ton and completed 1000 runs in the tournament so far in just 9 innings, becoming the second quickest to reach the landmark after Rusi Modi (1944/45 in 7 innings). Sikkim ended the day at 321/9.

Pondicherry were dismissed for 136 but they still managed a first innings lead as Arunachal Pradesh were bundled out for 82 in reply. Pondicherry ended the day at 28/2, with a lead of 82 runs.
