Ranji Climax

This year the Ranji Trophy has caught my attention tremendously. While my beloved Maharashtra has faded away,( I dont think they will ever win the Ranji Trophy again), i have followed the fortunes of the Mumbai Team. Infact i found myself rooting for the Mumbai Team primarily due to the presence of two men.

These two men are Amol Muzumdar and Praveen Amre. Amol Muzumdar is probably the most unluckiest domestic cricketer never to have played for the country. Year after year he has piled on the runs , only to find that the selection committee has ignored him.

Praveen Amre was another tragic case in Indian Cricket. Even Today his test average is above 40. Nobody can forget his debut Test Hundred on a bouncy Track at Durban. Yet a few test matches later he was unceremoniously dumped.

And what a beautifull game cricket is. Mumbai vs. Bengal.................. Sachin vs. Saurav................... Mhambrey vs. Amre.................... Pawar vs. Dalmiya................well thats a lot to look forward to.
