With eight teams participating in the quarter final round of the Ranji Trophy 2018-2019, It’s been Sanjay Ramaswamy and none other than Wasim Jaffer himself who has stepped up to the occasion as the best performers of the day.
Uttarakhand were dismissed 355 early on in the day, while Umesh Yadav picked a four-fer while making a comeback in the domestic circuit. Ramaswamy and Wasim Jaffer compiled an unbeaten 215 runs stand which ensured authority for Vidarbha on the field. Jaffer who finished the day on 111* is just a run behind Ramaswamy's 112*, who’s looking ever so solid in the crease. Vidarbha have the upper hand in the game as they trail by 95 runs with 9 wickets still in hand.
Uttar Pradesh on the other hand were bowled out for 385 in the second quarter final, with Rinku Singh turning out to be the stand out guy for U.P after a scintillating 150, while the ‘million dollar baby,’ Jaydev Unadkat scalping a five wicket haul for Saurashtra.

Kerala, 2nd innings: 171/10 in 59 overs (Sijomon Joseph 56, Roosh Kalaria 3/36)
