Group B: Bishnoi, Lomror help Rajasthan salvage one point
Jammu and Kashmir bowlers induce early panic, but the Group B match peters out into a draw
A fine wicketkeeper-batsman, Dishant Yagnik made his debut in the 2004-05 Ranji Trophy for Rajasthan against Services. During the Deodhar Trophy in 2006, he made headlines by sealing a win for Central Zone with a last-ball six against East Zone. The following year, he made headlines again but this time it would lead him to infamy: his move to the rebel ICL in 2007 resulted in him being blacklisted from the domestic set-up. Although he accepted the amnesty offer from the BCCI, he wasn't exactly welcomed back with open arms. The 2010 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy came as a godsend; he was finally selected to represent Rajasthan and hit a few breezy half-centuries that piqued the interest of the Rajasthan Royals management who promptly signed him up as well. He returned to the Ranji side in the 2011-12 season, notching up his maiden first-class century and fashioning a win against Hyderabad in the quarter-final. Being a part of the unit that lifted the trophy that season definitely went a long way in erasing his renegade past.
