Ranji Trophy Matches completed in one day

It has been widely believed by Indian Statistician fraternity and also world over that the only Ranji Trophy match that was completed in one day was the inaugural Ranji Trophy Match between Madras and Mysore played at Madras-Chepauk on 04.11.1934

As I was browsing through the Record Section of Association of Cricket Statisticians, I  found another  Ranji Trophy was completed in one day. It was the game between Saurashtra and Baroda played at Municipal Stadium, Rajkot on 05.12.1959

The url of the score card of this game culled from the portal espncricinf0.com is produced below. In this game, Baroda had won the toss and inserted the opposition.  Saurashtra was dismissed for 252 in its first innings. Baroda was batting with the score reading 24 for 2 and Saurashtra conceded the match following the death of Maharajshree Duleep Singh. Many of the players were related to him.

Baroda was led by DK Gaekwad.  Other cricketers who later or earlier shone for the national team are CG Borde. RH Shodhan, G Kishenchand. JM Ghorpade and JW Ghorpade

I had stated that the Karnataka-Tamilnadu encounter was the first game to be completed in two days which is incorrect. According the C Keshavamurthy – the domsestic Dada in Cricket stats, there are two more games. He was kind  enough to inform me this  through a email which is reproduced below

It has been stated that the TN/Knk match was the first RT match completed in two days – actually the TN/Knk QF match which ended in two days on 24.12.2016  provides the THIRD quarter final RTM ending in two days – of which one is a conceded match – here are the links for the other two QFs ending in two days –

http://cricketarchive.com/Archive/Scorecards/35/35817.html – Har/Ben at Calcutta – Ben won by ings & 4 runs

http://cricketarchive.com/Archive/Scorecards/21/21903.html – Del/Mum at Delhi – Del conceded the match

There may be other RTMs (not necessarily knock out matches) which might have ended in two days – since there are over 4500 RTMs I shall take a look and let you know when I finalise it.
