After winning a crucial toss at a ground, which was making its Ranji debut, Punjab got down to serious business straightaway. And on a slow wicket where run-making was not expected to be an easy affair, Punjab made a strong 305 for two on day one.
The 23-year-old Ricky, a former under-19 World Cupper and an Indian Airlines Traffic Superintendent at Amritsar, and his partner Samrat Sharma did not take much time to settle down, putting on an 119-run stand for the opening wicket a little after lunch.
Samrat's departure brought in World Cupper Dinesh Mongia and the scoring metre picked up speed. Mongia put on a 181-run second wicket stand with Ricky.
At close, Mongia had Pankaj Dharmani, Punjab's highest run-getter last season, for company.
Brief scores: Punjab 305 for two (Ravneet Ricky 125, Samrat Sharma 38, Dinesh Mongia 115 batting, Extras 26) vs Kerala
