Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2017

Recommended Posts

The 2016–17 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy is the eighth season of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, a domestic Twenty20 (T20) cricket tournament in India.

 

 It was initially played between 27 teams divided in four groups in round robin format, but it was announced that the 2016–17 season will be played in an inter-zonal format wherein five zones will compete in a round-robin tournament.

 

The tournament is scheduled to be held between 12–18 February 2017 and all matches will be played in Mumbai.

 

Each of the five zones will conduct an independent T20 tournament between its members, which will be used to select member for the inter-zonal league.

 

The interstate tournament will be held from 29 January to 6 February 2017. These tournaments will be hosted at Baroda (West), Chennai (South), Dharamsala (North), Jaipur (Central) and Kolkata (East).

What is the relevance of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, the domestic Twenty20 tournament, conducted by the BCCI in the age of IPL? During its short history (it started in 2007), the tournament has remained in the quiet shadows of its much-hyped and louder twin brother - IPL. For many the Mushtaq Ali might not be highly relevant, a formality the state players have to wrap up before the IPL extravaganza begins every summer.

 


Earlier editions of the tournament, in the age of IPL, were played post the auction and hence did not carry much of significance for the franchises, who has already assembled the squads heading into the IPL. But this season, the BCCI's decision to schedule the tournament prior to the IPL players' auction on February 6 has had the franchises excited.

 

Little wonder then that this time the talent scouts and assistant coaches for various franchises have been keenly following the tournament during the group stages which was played across four venues earlier this month. "It is an important tournament. The timing this time is crucial. You see a lot of interest among players, who want to perform well and announce that they are available. That is the kind of push you required for this tournament," says  Paras Mhambrey.

 

"The franchise can get a clear picture about who is being consistent, who is in form, the kind of role he could play and if the team can find a slot for him," Mhambrey,  says.

On Sunday, the zonal leg of India’s domestic T20 tournament, Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, gets underway in Chennai, Kolkata, Dharamshala, Nadaun, Vadodara and Jaipur. It’s a format that brings crowds to the stadiums. But this being domestic, proceedings may not attract more than a handful over the next week. That notwithstanding, IPL scouts will keep an eye on what’s happening.

This is a tournament that acts as an audition for the bigger party. For most players, each leap they make is a small stride towards realising their dream of earning the India cap.

 

Ask any Ranji player, be it Priyank Panchal, Shreyas Iyer or Rishabh Pant, they all have answers ready how playing for India is the biggest goal. But as far as this tournament goes, it’s a stage where some of these players can catch the attention of IPL sides.

 

The pressure or the goal here for players is not just about developing new skills required in this format, but that of earning contracts, which will allow them to rub shoulders with some of the world’s best. 

 

“Even in Ranji or Duleep, you know the selectors are watching. But you can’t keep thinking of playing an innings that will impress them.

 

You are taught to play without keeping these factors in mind. For this tournament, we know that scouts will be following us. But as a player, you can’t do anything different. If they call a player for trials, it’s a bonus, because at the trials they have a close look at you and you can make a strong case for yourself. Most sides look for approach and work ethic,” observed Tamil Nadu captain Vijay Shankar.

 

Whether purists like it or not, the IPL cap has its own value among domestic cricketers. Apart from earning a fortune, there is also the opportunity to experience the kind of ambience one gets in international cricket. However, not many players from the south, who have not represented the country yet, are IPL regulars. It suggests that they built their foundations in longer formats.

Is Surya Yadav injured?  I was looking forward to seeing how he does in Syed Mushtaq...

 

Banjo Pravin Tambe is still playing.  How old is he now? Almost 50?

I wanted Shardul Thakur to play.

 

He has a good yorker and slower ball and I want to see how he does in the shorter formats

 

Perhaps, he is still recovering from that ankle strain.

SKY has been dropped from the squad. T20 is a different format, one in which SKY has done well. Strange that he has been dropped.

"The tournament will miss a few big names. Suryakumar Yadav, vice-captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, has been left out by Mumbai after an inconsistent season, while Robin Uthappa, the Karnataka opener, will miss out with a back injury. "

Seems like politics.  Surya has gotten lot of flak from Mumbai FC team - he was dropped from captaincy mid-season recently etc allegedly for attitude issues.

Wow Sandeep Warrior  and Thanpi generating some pace now and hitting the deck hard. Good to see finally some good decent pace.

 

Here is his last over of Thampi

Jeff Thompson was full of praise for the Kerala quicks....especially Thampi and Warrier

 

What were Warrier's speeds  ?

He took 4 names here.  “Boys like Sandeep Warrier, Basil Thampi, M.K. Asif and Tilbin Joseph look pretty good,” he said. “I see a lot of potential for pace bowling in Kerala.”

 

Hope MK Asif and Tilbin Joseph will also be quick. Kerala can  be our breeding ground for pacers. He said he has more fast bowling depth in Kerala than Karnataka and Mumbai. He had a camp in Karnataka and Mumbai too.

Thompson does not like medium pacers

 

He should be made head-coach of MRF Pace Foundation

 

The selectors should keep special eyes on Kerala games
