originally from Uttarakhand.

Stayed with us in camp at Salwan which was run by Bantoo Singh. Bantoo Singh went on to be our school school and also Delhi Selectors. Few years ago, his car was attacked because he did not select certain players.

He runs the Delhi Gymkhana Club now.

Pant gone...scoring an uncharacteristic 29 off 69 balls....no sixes.

 

Seems like he tried to adapt his game to the needs of his team and that is good.

 

It would have been better if he had scored 70+ or stayed till the end.

It's good that tried a slower approach, but a 50-100 would have really boosted his creds a lot.

Shreyas Iyer who had an SR of 80 plus last season has also batted differently this season as he struggled with form, batting at 76 at an SR of 49, ATM.

That daddy 100 this season also came at a slightly lower SR than expected I think. But, on the whole, Iyer's season hasn't been bad - quite good by many standards.

Baba Aparajith has been the biggest disappointment this season, even last season was not great. After a high of scoring 200 in Duleep trophy a few years back. He has scored just 79 runs this season till now in, playing his 5th game of the season, highest 28. While his twin brother Indrajith is averaging 59 this season scoring 478 runs.

People in the know rated Indra more than Baba (for batting).

Delhi all of a sudden 7 down. This is going down the wire. 3 WICKETS in hand and the problem for Delhi is that both Milind and Manan have gotten out. Two new basmen.

 

50 needed, 3 wickets.

Should be advantage to the other team.

I want to see how Sangwan is bowling. Been a while. Hopefully he will have gained some strength. He could swing well back in the days when he first came.

Allegedly has bulked up a lot, and is faster. Batting also seems to more consistent this season (like Kuldeep).

Ya, been following him and commetns about him. Still want to see him on TV. Do not need him to be inclining like someone like Pathan. I rather have a solid bowler who swings well with good speed than Pathan-esque few series wonder.

Yes, but that won't happen this season in FC, since Delhi is out.

An article from Cricinfo on Bawne:


http://www.espncricinfo.com/ranji-trophy-2016-17/content/story/1072037.html

 

he is himself to blame...
No.3 is unsettled in mah side still he is coming at no.5
team management might be keen to play jadhav 4 thats understandable
but what bawne is doing at no 5
he could have got 18 centuries in 68 matches instead of 15

The BCCI has advanced the Ranji Trophy quarter-finals by a day and they will now begin from December 23. Defending champions Mumbai will play Hyderabad, who are in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2011-12, in Raipur while Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, finalists in 2014-15, will square off in Visakhapatnam.

 

Jharkhand, the Group B toppers and one of only two teams in the league stages to have five wins, will play Haryana in Baroda, while Odisha, in the knockouts for the first time in a decade, will face Gujarat in Jaipur. The two semi-finals were advanced by two days to start from January 1 in Rajkot and Nagpur, and the final, earlier scheduled for January 12, will be played from January 10 in Indore.

Yes this will make the match more interesting but Vijay just had a injury scare and Ashwin is probably carrying a niggle. So don't know if it wise to play the match.

Both their consents would have been gotten before naming the squad .Also pretty sure both can manage niggles to play such a significant game .

Vijay will have couple of months before his next India match as well
