On Tuesday, rising Mumbai batter Musheer Khan continued his run-scoring juggernaut in the Ranji Trophy 2024 Final against Vidarbha.  

The 19-year-old recorded his second century in first-class cricket and first in a Ranji Trophy final to break Mumbai legend Sachin Tendulkar's long-standing record. 

Khan, who has been in sublime form for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy, became the youngest batter from Mumbai to record a century in the final of the prestigious tournament. 

Tendulkar was 21 years old when he notched up 140 runs against Punjab in the 1994-95 Ranji Trophy final as Mumbai accumulated a massive total of 690/6 before opting to declare their innings at the Wankhede Stadium. In the second innings, the master blaster also scored a century to earn a draw against Punjab. 

Musheer, meanwhile, entered the record books at 19 years and 14 days when he took a couple off Yash Thakur's deliveries to reach the coveted figure in 255 deliveries. Interestingly, Tendulkar was in the stands when Musheer broke his record. 

The right-handed batter re-joined forces with his state team after serving the India U-19 team at the World Cup. He has been in phenomenal form as he notched up an unbeaten knock of 203 runs against Baroda in the quarter-finals and scored 55 runs in the semi-finals vs Tamil Nadu.
