Ranji Trophy final: Mumbai have a battle on their hands (Preview)

Jan 25 2013, 7:54am CST | by

Mumbai, Jan 25 (IANS) It will be tough for Saurashtra, playing their first Ranji Trophy final against Mumbai, who are looking to win the national championship for the 40th time.

Mumbai, Jan 25 — It will be tough for Saurashtra, playing their first Ranji Trophy final against Mumbai, who are looking to win the national championship for the 40th time.

Yet, Saurashtra are capable of giving Mumbai a good run for their money, going by their performance right through the season. But they will be without their two in-form stalwarts Cheteeshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja, both on national duty playing in the One-Day series against England.

Without Pujara and Jadeja, they managed to beat Punjab by a handsome margin in the semifinals and they hope to fight out the final, too.

Mumbai on the other hand entered their 44th Ranji Trophy final overcoming inclement weather in the semi-final against Services at the Palam ground, Delhi.

In an extended session of an extra sixth day, they dismissed Services for 240 and progressed into the final on first-innings lead.

Mumbai will start as the favourites with the likes of the great Sachin Tendulkar, Wasim Jaffer, Ajit Agarkar and Abhishek Nayar in their midst.

Though the hosts too will miss key players - Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma, who are also on international duty.

Vishal Joshi, Jaydev Unadkat and Siddharth Trivedi will hold the key in restricting the plethora of batting talent that Mumbai have.

The opening partnership between Shitanshu Kotak and Sagar Jogiyani has been a revelation for the visitors this season and the onus will be once again on the two to give their team a flying start.

India vs. Sri Lanka: Analysing India's Squad Ahead of Australia Tour

Oct 24 2014 7:41am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The dust seems to be settling down in the premises of the Board of Control for Cricket in India following a week of utter madness. On Tuesday, India named a 15-man squad for the first three matches of a hastily arranged five-match one-day international series against Sri Lanka in the first half of November. Fortunately for the BCCI, the announcement of the squad has taken some of the spotlight away from the uproar caused by the touring West Indies team last Friday. The picturesque and ...

India vs West Indies 2nd ODI: Virat Kohli Makes Crucial Return to Form

Oct 11 2014 2:02pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A dramatic West Indian batting collapse that saw them fold from 170-2 to 215 all out gave India victory in the second ODI of the five-match series in Delhi on Saturday. India, having won the toss and elected to bat, set what appeared to be a below-par total of 263-7 thanks largely to fifties from Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina. And despite a superb start from the West Indies that took them to the brink of victory at 170-2, with Dwayne Smith ...
