Tiwary, Shukla omitted from Jharkhand Ranji team
Jamshedpur: Middle-order batsman Saurav Tiwary and seamer Rahul Shukla have been omitted from the Jharkhand Ranji team ahead of its last league match against Goa, beginning at Keenan stadium from Tuesday.
While Tiwary was replaced by batsman Ashis Yadav, left-arm seamer Jaskaran Singh would take the place of Shukla for the last league encounter, Rajesh Verma, secretary of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association, said.
Verma said Singh had impressed the selectors with his performance during the Under-22 tournaments recently.
