Ranji Trophy: Ajay Rohera creates world record for highest first-class debut score

PTI
Rookie Madhya Pradesh opener Ajay Rohera today etched his name in the record books by slamming the highest first-class score on debut. 

He remained unbeaten on 267 against Hyderabad in their Ranji Trophy Elite Group-B Cricket in Indore. 21-year-old 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. 

Mazumdar took to Twitter to congratulate the young batsman. Madhya Pradesh declared their first-innings at a mammoth 562 for four 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 innings and 253 run victory.
