Profile

In the semi-final of the 2008-09 Ranji Trophy, Shivakant Shukla batted for 821 minutes to score an unbeaten 178 to take Uttar Pradesh through to their third final in four years. In the final, by the time he got out for 99 he had spent more than 20 hours between dismissals. But Shukla had scored only two centuries in 28 previous first-class matches. That he kept getting chances to play for UP was a minor miracle.
