A brilliant double hundred by Sanju V Samson helped Kerala gain the all-important first innings lead against hosts Assam in their Ranji Trophy Group C match at Guwahati on Tuesday. Sanju smashed a career-best 211 as Kerala made 362 in response to Assam’s first innings total of 323. Assam were 13 for no loss in their second innings, still trailing by 26 runs at the end of the penultimate day’s play.

The 19-year-old Sanju hit 23 boundaries and five sixes during his 337-ball knock. This was Sanju’s third hundred from eight First-Class matches. In the process he surpassed his previous highest score of 127 not out made against Himachal Pradesh last season.

Resuming on their overnight total of 119/3, Sanju and night-watchman P.U. Anthaf (19) added 74 more runs for the fourth wicket. Sanju put on 70 runs for the fifth wicket in the company of Robert Fernandez (27), before the latter fell to off-spinner Arlen Konwar.

Sachin Baby (8) disappointed in his first outing as Kerala Ranji captain as he was lured out of his crease by Konwar and wicketkeeper Kunal Saikia effected the stumping. Kerala suffered another blow when Vinoop Manoharan was run out for one with the total reading 298/7.

However, Sanju shouldered the responsibility of taking Kerala past Assam’s total in the company of C.P. Shahid. The duo added an invaluable 59 runs for the eight wicket before Sanju was caught by Pallavkumar Das off the bowling of Jamaluddin Syed Mohammed.
