The Bengal team broke the 129-year-old global first-class record when all nine batters, who took guard, scored 50-plus runs in the first innings of the Ranji Trophy 2022. Bengal was playing quarter-final against Jharkhand.

The first record of this kind was made in 1893 when England touring Australian team
had eight of their batters scoring fifty or more in a first-class game against combined
universities (Oxford and Cambridge).
