After 23 years, the MP team reached the final
The MP team reached the final of the Ranji Trophy after 23 years. The last time the team also played a final on this field, but then it was defeated by Karnataka. The captain of the team then was Chandrakant Pandit, who this time is the coach of the team. Then, after the team’s defeat, Pandit’s eyes filled with tears. Removing the shortcomings of the time, Pandit made such a strategy that Mumbai’s most successful team in the country is constantly confused.
Indor’s great contribution to the Ranji team of Madhya Pradesh
Shubham Sharma of Indore strengthened the middle order by playing a century of 116 runs. Rajusin Chauhan, vice president of the Indore Sports Club, says Shubham came to the club at a very young age. He does not belong to a very rich family. In his short career, Shubam saw many ups and downs, but kept his morale. He is hardworking and constantly strives to improve the game. Shubham’s performance on the team of any age group is excellent.
When Rajat Patidar came to the Vijay Club in Indore to learn cricket skills, he was very young. Here coach Ram Atre gave him initial training. Former international cricketer Amai Hurasia then worked hard to improve Rajat’s technique. Rajat had a strong performance in the IPL this year for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. For MP they also played important innings of 122 runs in the final.
Indore universal player Sarshan Jain played brilliant innings of 57 runs in 97 balls in the final. He took the lower bats with him to ensure that the MP’s score was very high.
Pandit also worked miracles
There is very little in cricket when the coach has more star status than the team, but in home cricket this status is used by Chandrakant Pandit. Under his leadership, MP is close to winning the Ranji Trophy for the first time. He has previously been a two-time Mumbai and Vidarba champions as coach.
