Guwahati: India’s U-19 World Cup-winning captain Yash Dhull made a seamless transition to senior cricket with a beautifully crafted debut hundred, as Delhi scored 291 for seven against Tamil Nadu on the opening day of their Group H Ranji Trophy match here.

Dhull, sent off into an unknown opening position in his first-ever first-class game, hit 113 off 150 balls with a whopping 18 limits, but more importantly, revived the innings after Sandeep Warrrier (2/69 in 16 overs) removed veteran Dhruv Shorey (1) and young Himmat Singh (0) follow each other in quick succession.
