Irani trophy is an annual first class match between the Ranji champion of previous year and the rest of India cricket player. It marks the beginning of the cricketing calendar of domestic cricket season of India. History witnesses how a rare and brilliant performance at the Irani trophy can fetch you direct ticket to Team India, national cricket team. Each and every player who participated is eager to garner this opportunity. The previous year Rajasthan is the Ranji champion so they are playing against the rest of India. Rajasthan bowling attack weakened comprehensively by the absence due to injury concern from two of their main tormenter of the previous season. Their batting is in full strength including India’s previous stars like H. Kanitkar and Aksha Chopra.
On the other hand the rest of India has Shikhar Dhawan , who wants to prove himself after a disappointing tour of West Indies where he missed the real opportunity, on the bowling font , three speedsters and the two spinners. All the bowlers have been selected for recent ODIs and two T20s against touring side England. Selectors want to know among the rookies who are the real marvel so that captain Dhoni will feel easy while selecting the team.
Shikhar Dhawan smashed two big centuries in a batting paradise, Mukunda smashed one centre on the second innings, Rahanne smashed one century in the first innings, and over all the selected players or the players who are on the pipe line have been performing here. On the bowling front Ojha the left armor took nine wickets in the match including the thirteenth time fifer, which is a rare considering he is still young and selected must have make up their mind to select him in Test Cricket. The leggie could not bowl to his potential and seems lack of spin and the consite4nce bounce control overriding his confidence. The two speedsters Umesh Yadhav and Aron Varun seems to be generating plenty of pace and they are fast and aggressive to its core and really bowled superbly. Umesh is successful though could have taken more wickets have not been a shoddy fielding experience and most affect is Aron , lots of drop catches and opportunities go begging, but surely he is in the pipeline and inside the think tank of Indian cricket team. Parthiv Patel’s wicket keeping is very bad in this match and dropped a few of those real good and easy catches.
Rahanne, Manish Pande exceptional in the field. Manish would be disappointed that he scored only a fifty in this match in a superb batting paradise. The real pace will be seen in the recently to be held one day championship and their also some talents will be generated and can be seen. Vinaya Kumar bowled well in patches but his problem would be his pace. Hardly touches one thirty would kilometers, and this give batsman each time a separated period to change and adjust the stroke. So, he should bowl always stump to stump parameters, other wise there is every chance of batsman making merry of his bowling. He should learn from Praveen Kumar’s consistency.
The satisfacroty part is that of the success of Rahanne and India team will be delighted to see his success as Sachin will not be available this time against England so one more batsman can fit into the scheme of things. Ojha born at Orissa and played for Hyderabad has been exemplary in his bowling parameters, he spuns, bounces and even some times spuns out of the table. He is economic and that is why he will fit into the Test team.
