Bihar’s Sakibul Gani scored a triple century on his first-class debut against Mizoram on Friday. He scored a mammoth 314 off 405 balls during the course.
“What caught my eye was his fearless strokeplay. He was a class apart among the lot. I immediately checked his scores in the local circuit. He can bat anywhere in the top 6,” Ratra, currently coaching the Assam Ranji team, told The Indian Express.
“He could have scored at least 1,000 runs in that season, but he has this tendency to throw away his wickets after scoring a crisp 30 or 40. My only advice for him was to stay at the crease, and you will score runs. But you know, the exuberance of youth,” said Ratra.
“We are still in touch, and I am very happy to see the feat he has achieved. You will hear more of him in the near future,” said Ratra.
