New Delhi, Nov 5 (UNI) Debutant Karan Sharma scored a fine century (120) and skipper Sanjay Bangar scalped four wickets as former champion Railways inflicted a humiliating innings and 88-run defeat on the face of Jammu and Kashmir with a day to spare in the Group ''B'' plate league match of the Ranji Trophy tournament here today.

Resuming at their overnight score of 307 for seven, Railways added 98 runs to their total in 32.2 overs before being all out.
Karan Sharma, over night 68, made the bulk of scoring for the Railways this morning, contributing 52 runs and in the process earned the distinction of scoring a century on debut.

Jammu and Kashmir in their second outing were bundled out for paltry 123.
