Sakibul Ghani Facts

  1. sakibul geek
  2. He made his List A debut for Bihar in October 2019 during the 2019–20 season. Vijay Hazare Trophy (India’s premier domestic 50-over competition). He made his T20 debut for Bihar in January 2021 during the 2020-21 season. Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (India’s premier domestic 20-over competition).
  3. He first came into limelight on the Indian domestic scene in February 2022, when he scored 341 runs in a ‘Plate Group’ match against Mizoram. Ranji Trophy (India’s premier domestic first-class competition).
  4. When he came out to bat in Bihar’s first innings, his team was in a shaky position (71/3). By the time he got out, he had taken Bihar’s score to 609 runs. He took only 405 balls to compile his Himalayan innings (at an impressive strike rate of 84.19) and also hit 56 fours and 2 sixes. He was also involved in a massive 538-run partnership for the 5th wicket with Babul Kumar, who scored 229 runs. The 4-day match eventually turned into a draw, despite Bihar enforcing a follow-on.
  5. Sakibul was adjudged ‘Player of the Match’ for his bravery. The match was also his first-class debut and he became the first cricketer to score a triple century on his first-class debut. The previous record for the highest score on a first-class debut was also held by an Indian cricketer. Ajay Rohera scored an unbeaten 267 against Hyderabad for Madhya Pradesh in December 2018. In return, Ajay broke the record of Indian domestic cricket legend Amol Majumdar, who scored 260 in his first-class debut for Mumbai (then Bombay) against Haryana in the 1993–94 season.
  6. In an interview, he had revealed that after hearing about his selection in Bihar Ranji Trophy Squad, his mother had mortgaged a gold chain to him so that she could buy 3 new cricket bats for them. Then he performed a ritual on those bats to ward off the evil eye. It was one of the bats with which Sakibul played a world record innings of 341 runs. He had also said that on returning home, he would first pay the dues on that gold chain.
  7. In his next 2 innings, he scored 98 runs and scored an unbeaten 101, meaning he scored 540 runs in his first 3 first-class innings, a new all-time record.
