Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since December 2009
Varun Aaron is in good form, and reporters on the ground say he's got a lot of pace and bounce, keeping a strong Mumbai batting lineup in check. Hopefully he'll play the whole season, and when he's fully fit, Jharkhand will play him for the whole season and not imagine they've got good spinners on spin-friendly wickets, a strategy that backfired at home against Gujarat.

Twenty20 used to be boring.
This Mumbai batting lineup is so weak atm.
Rather, they're not in good form collectively this season. Jaffer, Yadav and Tare did well, but the poor form of Hiken, Nayar and newcomer Sid Lad has pegged them back.Originally Posted by DaemonIronically, the same bowlers getting smashed in South Africa's high-bounce pitches would thrive in New Zealand.Seeing our bowlers performance it would not surprised me if he is selected for NZ tour
Ranji XI so far
- Rahul Lokesh
- SS Tiwary
- Kedar Jadhav
- Naman Ojha (WK)
- Rishi Dhawan (RMF)
- Jalaj Saxena (OB)
- Pankaj Singh (RMF)
- Vishal Dabholkar (SLA)
- Sandeep Sharma (RM)
- Reserve: Robin Bist
Harshal Patel misses out because his team's not performed as well as some others. Ishwar Pandey misses out because he's several wickets short. Varun Aaron, running hot, misses out because he's missed some games, and thus, some wickets. Takawale misses out because Tripura have done nothing of note, except snatch some points. Rahul edges ahead of Bist on account of Karnataka's superior performance.
In an update, Abhishek Nayar was out for one run in 54 balls!
Do NOT look up the scorecard of Hyderabad/Tripura if you really want the Indian team and Indian DC to prosper.

Is this your homework Larry?
Nehra with a 5fer although cricinfo is reporting that pitch could not be differentiated from the rest of the outfield. Delhi playing with 5 pacers, has it happened before that an Indian domestic team fielded 5 pacers??
Vidarbha walked out briefly, citing a dangerous pitch. It seems Roshanara, a snooty club that does not even allow journalists to cover Ranji games. They don't want the Vidarbha Ranji Team either, it seems.
In this piece, Nuwan Zoysa has been appointed coach of Goa, and results are showing. Good initiative by BCCI. Good for Goa, for Zoysa, and maybe for India/Sri Lanka as well. Zoysa now joins Intikhab Alam, Dermot Reeve, Meyrick Pringle and Darren Holder in foreigners who coach Indian domestic sides. This should be a point to note when picking the next Indian coach, instead of merely chasing overpriced foreigners.
Clear-cut result cases in Mumbai-Odisha, Punjab-Karnataka, Bengal-UP, Railways-TN, Baroda-Services and Delhi-Vidarbha. The last two games are running on batting-hostile pitches.
I'm watching Bengal vs UP at Eden. Very green, though not as green as Rosha-no-area where Delhi is crushing Vidarbha on a pitch greener than the outfield. A few falling to slip catches, a few bowled/leg-before, even Dinda (took five today) has bowled quite well, so the Indian batsmen can be tested on such pitches, but I wouldn't want to pick Indian seam bowlers on their success on the same pitches.
Madhya Pradesh all out for 31, a huge innings win for Baroda
Munaf why you no bowl like this for india?
