When 20-year-old Delhi cricket player Rishabh Pant captained his side on Day 1 of Ranji Trophy final against Vidarbha at Holkar Cricket Stadium at Indore, he achieved a unique feat. Pant broke legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s 22-year-old record of being the youngest player to lead a team in Ranji final.

In 1994-95 Ranji Trophy final, Sachin became the youngest captain to lead a Ranji side in final at the age of 21 years and 337 days. Pant has achieved the feat in just 20 years and 86 days.
