Vadodara/ Anand: As Gujarat's 26-year-old opening batsman Samit Gohel broke the 117-year-old record in first class cricket by notching up the highest score of 359 not out during his team's Ranji trophy quarter-final against Odisha on Tuesday, celebrations erupted in small town Anand in Central Gujarat from where Gohel hails.

"We are feeling very proud about his achievement. Since, over a year, he has focused very hard and put in best of his efforts. Now, we will strive to improve the performance further," said Devang Desai, who is not only Samit's childhood coach but also his father-in-law.
