Gurkeerat celebrates ODI call-up with 205 for Punjab

Mohali: High on confidence after his maiden call-up to the Indian ODI team, young Gurkeerat Singh Mann smashed his way to an unbeaten double hundred as Punjab piled up a mammoth 604 for five against Railways before declaring their first innings.

Such was Gurkeerat’s dominance during his 205-ball-201 that Punjab scored 339 runs on the single day. Gurkeerat hit 25 fours and five sixes in his innings and added 306 runs with wicketkeeper-batsman Gitansh Khera (102) with nine fours and a six.

Before Gurkeerat scored the first double of the Ranji season, it was Uday Kaul (112) and Mandeep Singh (109), who had scored tons on a placid batting wicket.
