35 all out! Madhya Pradesh suffer incredible collapse in Ranji Trophy match

Madhya lost their final six wickets without scoring, with only two batsmen managing double figures in their second innings of the match


Madhya Pradesh imploded to 35 all out, having been 35 for 3, in their Ranji Trophy match against Andhra Pradesh.

Madhya lost their final six (Gaurav Yadav was injured and did not pick up a bat) wickets without scoring, with only two batsmen managing double figures in their second innings of the match.

Opener Aryaman Birla scored 12 runs, Yash Dubey top-scored with 16 while five batsmen fell for ducks.

The home side - who hadn't fared much better in their first innings (91 all out) - were 35 for 3 when the wicket of Birla sparked the match-ending wicket spree.


Six batsmen failed to trouble the scorers

The collapse left Madhya in the ruins of a 307-run defeat which ended their hopes of featuring in the Ranji Trophy play-offs

Paidikalva Vijaykumar (3-17) and Kodi Sasikanth (6-18) were the only two Andhra bowlers required and finished the job inside 17 overs.

Madhya's dismal effort did at least surpass the competition's lowest ever total - Hyderabad's 21 against Rajasthan in the 2010/11 season.

Amazingly, they weren't even the only side to be reduced to 35 all out in the Ranji Trophy this week, with Tripura suffering the same indignity against Rajasthan.
