Rajasthan's Deepak Chahar takes 8 Wickets, Hyderabad 21 all out

Rajasthan's debutant medium-pacer Deepak Chahar bowled a sensational spell to dismiss Hyderabad for just 21 runs, setting a record for the lowest team total in Ranji Trophy. In fact, it was a 75-year old record that was broken Monday. In the first Ranji Trophy season in 1934-35 Southern Punjab were bowled out for 22 chasing 114 against Northern India, which was the lowest total so far. Hyderabad also equalled the record for the lowest total in India's first-class cricket. In 1915-16, the Europeans bundled the Mohammedans out for 21 in the Bombay Quadrangular.
Debutant pacer Deepak Chahar, 18, wreaked havoc by taking eight wickets for ten runs to inflict the humiliating record on Hyderabad. The previous lowest total was registered by Southern Punjab, who were all out of 22 in a chase of 114 against Northern India in Amritsar in 1934-35 in the first edition of the domestic cricket tournament. Hyderabad also equalled the record for the lowest total in India's first-class cricket history. Way back in 1915-16, Mohammedans were also out for 21 against Bombay Quadrangular.
Medium pacer Chahar would have not have thought of such a dream debut as he recorded sensational figures of 7.3-2-10-8. His pace colleague Pankaj Singh claimed the other two wickets. Chahar had a chance to get a hat-trick after dismissing MP Arjun and Alfred Absolem in the last ball of his seventh over and the first of his eighth but Pagadala Naidu denied him the milestone by managing to survive that ball. The young paceman's performance though was not best ever on debut as Maharashtra's Vasant Ranjane had taken nine wickets for 56 run against Saurashtra in 1956-57.
