    They have streamed in the past on bcci.tv

    I've even managed to watch the Irani trophy and a few other Ranji games on the telly in Singapore.

    Yep. Commentary is given by Gavaskar's son nowadays too, presumably in an attempt to make everything look international-lite.

    Willow shows quite a few Ranji matches to U.S. viewers.

    Nah, he was great support for Khan when the Aussies came to India after the 2008 tour. There was a time when both Khan and Sharma reversed the ball(Khan more than Sharma obviously) and looked like genuine wicket taking options. That was when everyone thought we had found a fast bowler to take India forward for the next 12 years after Khan. Then he got injured and it was like someone had pissed on that fire.

    He might not have been as good as other fast bowlers in the world at that time but he was the best in the country after Khan for at least a year. I remember him being compared to Stuart Broad and a lot of people even voted for him as the better bowler.(I might have as well)

    Don't forget his comeback series in the Windies.

    Basically, what I'm asking is that is there any way for a fan to advocate a national selection of a player other than just looking at scores?
    Yes.

    I remember seeing Praveen Kumar get an 8-fer in Ranji. Was a great day.

    Yup IIRC he took 20+ wickets in that series. Looked really good in that series along with Praveen Kumar but unfortunately after that in England tour he was bowled really bad

    He looked okay against West Indies. He was pretty wayward from what I saw but they just couldn't play him.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Nah he was really good there. Jagging it in sharply and more importantly getting it to straighten with consistency. He'll probably do the same if you give him those conditions even now.

    Baba Aparijith (sp?) just can't stop scoring runs. Anyone had a look at his game?

    Have also been hearing good things about Suryakumar Yadav. He was a hot name in the domestic scene last year for his Sehwag-ish aggressiveness as a batsman but things have been quiet this year. Hope I get to see more of his batting in the future.

    So it seems official, Sehwag's batting in the middle order again. Maybe the best place for him to be scoring runs, but definitely not the ideal position to be making them if he wants to make a comeback.
