    Love the Duleep Trophy but the format seems to get worse and worse every season. A four game tournament? Really?

    I think he was on a hat-trick; that's great

    Doesn't seem enough really but then there is a fair amount of cricket played in the Ranji Trophy. I really hate that there are attacks which can be considered weak in the competition. It should be the case that all the teams are very strong. I guess India A game and Champions League has something to do with it but I think the point that a lot of mediocrity seems to thrive in domestic cricket must also be considered. From what I've heard, there was someone who was pretty prolific in the Ranji Trophy Plate League as an opening bowler, bowling at 115kph the other day.

    The Challenger Trophy is certainly something which needs to be overhauled. I think it should be a three match series between India Blue and the OD champions (e.g. Delhi). It is all about feeding into the international team, surely we do not have more than 11 people on the cusp of the ODI team and so we do not need an India A and India B team in the series.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Ideally it should be the other way around. It'll never happen though, probably because of the number of states/major cities with their own individual associations.

    The Duleep Trophy should be played as a five-team group, with the top team clinching the Trophy, to avoid drawn finals and first-innings leads deciding the winner. It should be played in the off-season, when the best players are available, no international/reserves/futures cricket on.

    The Ranji Trophy needs to be shortened, and instead of this unequal hierarchical tier system, we should have three or four evenly-balanced groups and the top six make a super group stage, to keep the competition more active and reduce draw-pinching. Overseas players in off-season should be allocated to each team, which will keep the quality high when Indian players are away.

    The Challenger Trophy should not be a means to select the national side. You can get nothing out of the tournament in this form. You can, instead, treat it as a workout for the current ODI team. ODI selections should be based on other tournaments.

    Mohanty has mind boggling figures for someone who hovers around the 115-125kph mark.

    East Zone is a lot more bowler-friendly, which helps Mohanty's figures, but he seems to be getting some serious swing even in the flatter, hotter South Zone. If he can increase his pace to the 130s, and still keep that swing, he's a serious contender for a Test spot. Can't say that about Dinda, who's got neither enough pace nor any sort of accuracy or consistency.

    Are you watching the game on STAR Sports HD? I'm not getting the channel, and the regular channels are showing re-runs of Champions' Trophy, some Indo-Pak game and some BPL football.

    That is exactly the thoughts I went through today. Clearly has the ability to swing it in too.

    Chand gets his hundred, Yadav gets a wicket early on. Good day so far.

    Hopefully Umesh gets a big ten in this match, and at least two more. That will help his cause as an India strike bowler, not just in Tests, but also in ODIs, where we're seeing weak bowlers picked as ODI specialists.

    Mandeep is inching towards another fifty. One more bloke who's doing very well in FC cricket but struggling in limited-overs formats, much like Manish Pandey.
