Batting all-rounder Sanjay Yadav entered the Ranji Trophy record books on Tuesday by taking nine wickets against Nagaland at the Nagaland Cricket Stadium in Sovima.

Yadav's performance for VB Thiruvallur Veerans (now VB Kanchi Veerans) in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) earned him a place in Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction for ₹10 lakh.

The 24-year-old Yadav moved to Meghalaya cricket team from Tamil Nadu ahead of the 2019-20 season as a guest player. He made his List A debut on September 24 in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and first-class debut on Monday.

On Monday, in yet another dominating performance by a bowler, Rex Singh starred for Manipur, picking up 8 for 22, as the side bowled out Mizoram for a paltry 65.
