The 20-year-old batsman recently made his return in cricket after recovering from the knee injury. After scoring 84 and 45 in the previous game against Rajasthan U-23, Armaan played this special triple-century knock in the ongoing match where he remained not out on 300 off 367 balls (26 fours and 10 sixes).

While Armaan was batting on 47 runs at the stumps on day 1, he completed his century as well as the double-century on the day 2 by remaining not out 214 runs. On day 3, Armaan batted superfast to complete his triple-hundred.

Speaking about his special batting, Armaan said, “This was a special knock because I want to make a comeback in the Ranji Trophy (team) and needed a big one. In the last match, I was going good but fell for 80. This match was on the home ground, so it was important that I score big to make a comeback.”

In the reply of Saurashtra’s first innings total 175, Mumbai managed to score 610/5 before announcing their declaration. Apart from Armaan’s triple-century, the opener Rudra Dhanday also played a century knock in the same innings as he scored 166 off 216 balls (23 fours and 2 sixes).

In their second innings of this game, Saurashtra finished the day three on 157/4 as they are still 278 runs behind from Mumbai’s first innings total.

Coming to Armaan’s brilliant knock, he made his comeback to cricket in just recently after spending out at the sideline for around last one year due to the knee injury.

Talking about his injury, Armaan said, “Last year there was an U-23 match at Bandra-Kurla Complex and the injury happened on the previous day of the match during warm-up. Surgery was avoided and hence I went to the NCA for rehab …Come-back was a little late, but it was ok, as we avoided surgery.”
