The move from junior to senior is a big jump but Yash Dhull made it look easy. It never seemed he was playing his first First Class match that too against a quality bowling attack like Tamil Nadu’s.

Opening the batting, Delhi lost Dhruv Shorey and Himmat Singh for 1 and 0 respectively. Nitish Rana offered a semblance of resistance before he was sent packing for 25. However, Dhull kept playing his strokes and did not allow the Tamil Nadu bowlers to settle. He also scored runs at a brisk clip and kept the scoreboard ticking.
