Ranji Trophy 2022: Ganesh Satish’s impressive double ton on his 100th first class match

Ganesh Satish, a 33-years-old wicketkeeper-batsman from Vidharbha, scored his double-ton – 275 runs – against Maharashtra on his 100th first-class game appearance.

Ganesh Satish strives to play for the provided platform irrespective of his age. The batsman agrees on the “age factor” that restricts a player from extending his career. Despite being 30+, Ganesh Satish is optimistic about playing test cricket: “I know obviously, it gets tough once you cross 30, but my dream is to play Test cricket. This is what motivates me to perform better every time I go out there in the middle. I won’t give up on my dream until I stop playing. I will continue to strive for it.”

Ganesh Satish registered his highest score in the first-class league to date as he broke his earlier record of 237 against Andhra Pradesh in the 2019-2020 season. “Ranji Trophy is the biggest opportunity for domestic cricketers to showcase their talent. It is the livelihood of more than 600 players. All the greats of Indian cricket come up from the Ranji trophy and it is also a matter of pride to say I’m a Ranji Cricketer.” Satish said to Indian Express.
