Indian Domestic Cricket: Ranji Trophy 2017 - 6 October to 25 November

This is the 3rd edition of the FT comp on the premier cricket tournament of India. paper_aero is the defending champion and we had 10 runners in the comp last season. srini701 won the inaugural edition in 2015.

~ 28 teams divided into 4 groups (each team plays 6 matches in group stage before the top 2 in each group move to quarterfinals).
~ We only pick one of the 2 teams in each round....and score as many points as the teams we pick score (for win or draw)
~ We pick 7 rounds of league matches (12 matches each round) that's all!

Current champions are Gujarat, who beat the champions from the 2016, Mumbai in the finals. More details on this year's tournament can be had from here . A good preview here

Please indicate your interest here, so I will know if we can have a comp....1st round Starts [b]Friday, October 6.

We were 10 last year in the comp and are 10 again this year. Not the same line up though....illiniman14 and shadowmyst have been replaced by dg_dave and LeoDaVinci....welcome to both of them. And they started pretty well too!
Not too many outright results in round 1, with only 4 teams winning. 2 matches were badly affected by rain and the 4 teams involved (Hyderabad, Maharashtra, Odisha, Tripura) shared a point each. Uttar Pradesh had Railways on the mat and then managed to lose outright! Baroda were "surprised" by Madhya Pradesh, while Saurashtra could get an innings win after scoring only 280!
LeoDaVinci starts a new comp with a winner's spot, while dg_dave is near top too, along with ozzz2002, Howie72 and srini701....all a good 8 points behind Leo. ElfTwinkle, silver medallist last season, starts this one with a spoon....plenty of matches in a short comp to catch up, though smile

Welcome back to illiniman14 for round 2...we are 11 now this season smile There were more outright results this round, meaning better scores for us....4 weekly winners with different sets of picks! LeoDaVinci failed to pick Bengal to win, but still managed a damn good score for a second round in a row....that failed pick keeps him with the rest of us. ozzz2002 takes the spoon for the round and falls back.

Most of us continued to back Punjab, who failed us all for the second round in a row mad Defending champions Gujarat started with a win, as did strong favorites Karnataka. Saurashtra, Bengal and Delhi all won too this round. No play possible for 8 match days in a row now at Hyderabad...thankfully the rains are over and the team also starts road matches next round.

Results galore this round, and ElfTwinkle and Howie72 should rue lodging their picks late. Both lost a potential 19 points each by lodging picks after the matches started (but since they lodged on day 1 itself, should I waive the penalty off and give them the points? Experts, please advise...) Couldn't give them "gimme" points too as each match in Group A had at least 1 pick each.

Gujarat and Karnataka both won their second match in a row, while Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and Railways all won for the 2nd time in 3 rounds...Punjab managed to win their first match of the season, as did Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh and Jharkhand. Haryana, UP and Assam have all lost twice already this season.

srini701 and ElfTwinkle had a near perfect round, missing only 1 match. LeoDaVinci and paper_aero were close behind. ...gtho4 and ozzz2002 were off radar and slipped behind, but the spoon for the round was taken by Howie72.

If my picks for the first 3 games don't count then so be it ... I understand and that's life.

I'm not so sure yours were posted before deadline...9:30am in India would be 11pm in Central Daylight Time, or midnight Eastern Time, but part of that is srini's math (he's adding the hour on somehow). As FT utilizes Central Standard Time (or Mountain Daylight Time), which is 11˝ hours earlier than in India (as India does not observe DST), the deadline would be as follows:

09:30am India
04:00am GMT
10:00pm CST
11:00pm CDT
12:00am EDT

Srini ... Just disregard my 1st 3 tips (Group A games) as per stated in your original post with the slate of games. My fault for not double checking the start time and you do note not to wait to the last minute to post our tips.

As one of the tippers involved I will stand by my last post in the tipping thread ... Just disregard my 1st 3 tips (Group A games) as per stated in your original post with the slate of games. My fault for not double checking the start time and you do note not to wait to the last minute to post our tips. Therefore Howie and I should not get the 19 points for the 1st 3 tips (Group A games).

ElfTwinkle and illiniman14 had near perfect rounds, missing just a match each in their picks. srini701, George95, paper_aero and LeoDaVinci all missed 2 matches each. wwe84 takes home his first spoon for the season.

Not a great round for anybody there. 9 matches ended as draws and even there most of the fancied teams took a beating, leading to some poor scores all round. Out of a max possible 47 points this round, paper_aero and ozz2002 landed 28 each, for the round's honours. George95 takes the spoon and would have got the spoon with srini701 as company, had it been a full set of picks for him too. George l;odged picks a full 12 hours late. LeoDaVinci missed his picks and so drops off the top 2 for the first time this season! 2 rounds to go and paper_aero is the new leader and ElfTwinkle is also making a run for it, still very much in with a shout.

Another "big" round with 8 outright results there. Karnataka and Delhi confirmed their knockout berths from Group A, as did Vidarbha from Group D. Gujarat, Kerala and Saurashtra are in the race from Group B, Mumbai, Andhra and Madhya Pradesh are fighting from Group C, and Bengal and Punjab are still alive in Group D with just one round of league matches left.

paper_aero stretched his lead at the top of our ladder and is well placed to retain his title barring a miraculous collapse in the last round. srini701 and LeoDaVinci are fighting for the silver medal. wwe84 took home his second spoon and dg_dave slipped to the cellar after defaulting the round.

My apologies to everybody....for not specifying a grace period for any late picks. These are 4 day matches and it's not fair to penalize points for being late by some minutes. Plus, I had the FT times wrong by an hour causing some more confusion.

I discussed with George and he felt it is only fair I have some grace period for a 4 or 5-day matches. I have therefore decided to have a 60-minute grace period for late picks and NOT penalize any points for people lodging picks within an hour of the matches starting.

As a result, ElfTwinkle gets points for round 3 (she was 46 minutes late) and illiniman14 gets points for round 5 (he was 56 minutes late). I had already not deducted LeoDaVinci for round 6 as he was just 30 minutes past the original deadline. ElfTwinkle also gets her HoF for round 3, and illiniman14 loses his spoon for round 5.

Howie72 for round 3 and George95 for round 5 however are not lucky :-) They were both almost a day or 12 hours delayed in their picks, so their points are not affected. Sorry guys!

From next season onwards, I will add the grace period of 60 minutes for late picks for this tournament. However, World Cricket will stay the same as we pick individual players and we need to do that before matches start :-)

Actually, I was just under an hour and a half late not a day or 12 hours but still should be penalised. smile

The last round of league matches turned out to be exciting for many teams. With only 1 group decided, there was plenty at stake for many teams and most did not disappoint. Gujarat and Kerala won yet again in Group B to make it to the last 8; Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh did likewise from Group C, while Bengal got the first innings lead which was sufficient for them to advance from Group D. There were also wins in the last round for Maharashtra, Baroda and Karnataka (again). So 7 outright results that last round smile

For some inexplicable reason, paper_aero imploded in the final round after holding fort the last two rounds. He slipped from the perch, allowing srini701 to sneak to the title, and only just held off a fast-improving ElfTwinkle for the silver medal! For some inexplicable reason, LeoDaVinci did not lodge picks for the last round and that allowed ElfTwinkle to storm past him and ensure the podium remains the same as last year....in a different order (The order was paper_aero, ElfTwinkle, srini701 last year).

For probably the first time in the 3 years of this comp, we had a "perfect round" and credit for that goes to not 1, not 2, but 4 people....so "well done" to ElfTwinkle, George95, Howie72 and illiniman14 for a spectacular final round smile Thank you everybody for a good comp and hoping everybody will return for 2018.....and in the meanwhile switch to World Cricket as well (read George95, dg_dave and LeoDaVinci) grin

That one is still too confusing to me. This one makes sense...pick a team. I'm not going to stay in the cellar of this one next year!
