Gujarat Titans all-rounder Rahul Tewatia sported a new look during Haryana's Ranji Trophy match against Jharkhand and his style has gone viral on social media. Fans were fascinated with his retro look and some were quick to compare him with several legendary cricketers. From Pakistan's Javed Miandad to India's 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev, a lot of them found mentions in the comments posted by the social media users. On the field, Tewatia looked in tremendous form and he went on to score his first century of this Ranji season with a 212-ball-144 that took his team's total to 509 in the first innings.

Badoni hit 12 fours and a six in his 115-ball 111-run knock after the opening duo of Anuj Rawat (54 off 32 balls) and Yash Dhull (82 off 81 balls) gave a flying start to Delhi's second innings.

Skipper Himmat Singh (45 off 45 balls) and Jonty Sidhu (46 off 51 balls) continued the onslaught as Delhi scored at more than six runs an over before declaring their innings. It was their best total in the ongoing Ranji season.
Himachal Pradesh lost Prashant Chopra (5) in the second over before reaching 31 for one in eight overs with opener Shubham Arora (15) and Ankit Kalsi (7) at the crease at stumps.
Himachal, who had taken a first-inning lead on day two, will need 296 runs to win on the final day.
Earlier, the hosts lost the remaining two wickets in the morning with the addition of just eight runs after resuming their first innings at an overnight score of 311 for 8.
While Himanshu Chauhan (3/72) didn't allow Rishi Dhawan to complete his century, dismissing him at his overnight score of 95, Siddhant Sharma (5/103) claimed the last wicket of Vaibhav Arora (4) to complete a five-wicket haul.
