Sikkim makes debut at Ranji Trophy; Professional trio shows brillance

Bipul Sharma, Ishwar Chaudhary, and Milind Kumar signing contracts with Sikkim Cricket Association

When I first heard about Milind Kumar’s entry into Sikkim Cricket team for the Ranji Trophy 2018 from Roshan Prasad, my good old friend who is now assotiated with Sikkim Cricket Assotiation, I was wondering why did not the Sikkim Cricket Assotiation roped for a popular face that could had motivated the entire team. But his performance in just six games for Sikkim has forced me to reconsider my decisison about him.
MILIND KUMAR
Milind Kumar, along with Bipul Sharma and Ishwar Chaudhary are the professional players drafted for Sikkim team after its dismal show at the Vijay Hazare Tournament 2018 where Sikkim lost its all eight matches. This year also marked Sikkim’s entry into List A cricket tournament in India. Sikkim is among nine new state team to participates at these tournaments. To add the dismay, Sikkim lost its first match at Vijay Hazare Tournament by 10 wickest against Manipur and the other match they himalayan team lost by 292 runs when they were bundled out for just 46 runs against Bihar. This proving to be the highest runs of defeat for any team at Indian Domestic Cricket.

The trio of Milind Kumar, Bipul Sharma and Ishwar Chaudhary have brought new luck for the Sikkim cricket team and in six Ranji matches the new state team have won three of their six matches with the trio being the biggest factor.
ISHWAR CHAUDHARY
Lets list out the scores of Milind Kumar, 261 (against Manipur), 224 (against Nagaland), 133 & 61 (against Uttrakhand), 13 & 13 (against Bihar), 96 & 77* (against Pondichurry) and 139 (against Mizoram). The run-machine Milind Kumar had single handedly chased down every Sikkim’s win. Not to forget his 14 valuable wickets with best figure coming against Bihar, where he had 4 for 63.
In this new season of Ranji Trophy, Milind Kumar becomes the first player to cross the magical four figure of 1000 runs in his nine innings. Kumar becomes the second quickest to reach the landmark after Rusi Modi who had scored 1944 in 7 innings.
His total stats after six matches reads ; 1017 runs with an average of 113 with four century and three half century. Interestlingly he had scored 1017 runs from 1150 ball he had faced so far. Record seems to add, his 39 fours against Manipur and 31 fours against Nagaland is the most fours of the inning. Milind gaining first and second poition on the ocassion. He is the highest century maker (4) in this first six matches stats. His highest score is 261 in Sikkim’s Ranji Trophy debut match against Manipur. He is the only batsman so far to had 100 boundaries; 141 fours and 14 sixs. Isn’t that brillant !!
BIPUL SHARMA
If Sikkim is doing good at this initial stages, lets not forget the bowling figures of Ishwar Chaudhary, another professional player to watchout. Chaudhary has a total of 40 wickets from six matches. Seven wickets against Manipur, 6 wickets against Nagaland, 4 wickets against Uttrakhand, 7 wickets against Bihar and 11 wickets against Pondicherry. His wicket standing from six matches is third, only Gurinnder Singh with 47 wickets from 7 matches and Dhapola with 42 wickets from 5 matches is ahead of him. He has five wicket haul in four instances. Chaudhary’s best figure is 6 for 78 against Bihar. Sharma also has three 50s with a total score of 391 for Sikkim.
Bipul Sharma, the third of the outside player trio of Sikkim has bagged 23 valuable wickets with his best figure of 4 for 55 against Manipur. With a bat, he has three 50s to his name at this first six match stats.
Sikkim has a busy season coming up and I am sure the trio’s record have a major influence over the young Sikkim Team. Best wishes guys !!
