Cricket News: Ajay Rohera creates history by scoring highest first-class score on debut (9th December)

Rookie Madhya Pradesh opener Ajay Rohera etched his name in the record books by slamming the highest first-class score on debut. Rohera scored an unbeaten 267 against Hyderabad in their Ranji Trophy Elite Group B game. Rohera’s 267 not out is a world record. The record was earlier held by former Mumbai stalwart Amol Mazumdar, who had hit 260 versus Haryana at Faridabad in 1994. Rohera’s 345-ball knock, which comprised 21 fours and five sixes, helped Madhya Pradesh to declare their first innings at a mammoth 562/4 in response to Hyderabad’s first innings score of 124. Madhya Pradesh bowlers then gave Rohera a winning gift by bundling out Hyderabad for 185 in their second essay for an emphatic inning and 253 run victory.
