Sakibul Gani, playing his debut match for Bihar in Ranji Trophy, made a special record by scoring a triple century against Mizoram. Sakibul Gani, a resident of the Motihari district of Bihar, has become the first batsman in the world to score a triple century in the debut match of first-class cricket. Before him, no one had been able to do this feat to date. After this special achievement, he is being discussed all over the world. But very few people know the story of his struggle behind reaching this achievement.
To get the bat, the mother had mortgaged the ornaments.
There was a time in the life of Sakibul Gani, who became the center of discussion all over the world on the basis of his brilliant batting when he did not even have money to buy a cricket bat. At that time his mother had even mortgaged her jewelry to get him a bat. Sakibul Ghani’s father Mohd. Mannan (Mohammad Mannan) works as a dealer under the mass distributor system. His elder brother Faisal Gani said in an interview given to Dainik Bhaskar,
The cost of a good bat would have ranged from 30 to 35 thousand rupees. It is a big dream come true for a middle-class family to buy it, but the parents never let money hinder their brother’s cricket. Whenever there was a financial problem, the mother used to mortgage her jewelry. When Sakibul was going to play Ranji Trophy, his mother gave him three bats and said – go, son, come with three centuries. And he scored 3 centuries in the same match
Have already shown his batting skills
Shakebul Gani has also proved his mettle in the Bihar Under-23, Mushtaq Ali (20-20) cricket tournament, and Vijay Hazare (50-50) trophy before his record-breaking innings in the Ranji Trophy.
He also made a lot of noise with his bat in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He played a century of 113 runs and a half-century of 94 runs for Bihar this season. Before that in Mushtaq Ali too, he had scored a brilliant half-century. Along with batting, Sakibul has the ability to take wickets with the ball.
