Summary

  • Vidarbha all-rounder Shrikant Wagh achieved an incredible feat of claiming 10 wickets in an innings to help his team Stokesley CC beat Middlesbrough CC by 135 runs in the North Yorkshire and South Durham Cricket League at Broughton Road ground on Saturday.
  • Wagh, 29, an overseas professional with Stokesley in the ECB Premier Division tournament, rated this performance higher than his match haul of 8 for 90 in a Ranji Trophy game against Delhi during the 2014-15 season at Nagpur where the hosts won by an innings and 93 runs.
  • In reply, Middlesbrough were bowled out for a mere 97 in just 22.4 overs with Wagh returning amazing figures of 11.4-1-39-10.
  • Wagh’s 2017-18 Ranji Trophy season was restricted to one match due to a knee injury and fellow pacers Rajneesh Gurbani and Lalit Yadav grabbed their opportunity to help Vidarbha clinch their maiden Ranji Trophy title.
  • I am confident of making a strong comeback into the Ranji team,” said Wagh, who was Vidarbha’s leading wicket-taker (10 in five games) in the last Vijay Hazare Trophy, the 50-overs-a-side tournament.
