Welcome to the 2018-19 edition of the Ranji Trophy, India's premier first-class cricket championships. 8 people lodged picks for round 1, two less than last year (missing dg_dave and ElfTwinkle).

Only 3 outright results in the opening round. Rain ensured 2 other matches did not even have their first innings completed (TN-MP and Kerala-Hyderabad) and all 4 teams shared a point each. Still early days yet so tough to say any team is on the rise or not.

3 Aussies in our midst and they hog all the limelight in the opening round smile ... gtho4 gets off to a strong start, while ozzz2002 and wwe84 start at the rear...

More outright results in round 2, especially in Group C, means the scores this round are higher. Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan won outright for the second round in a row, Tamil Nadu and Hyderabad both failed to complete even a single innings for the second match in a row. The other teams are all still finding their groove, I guess.

We welcome back ElfTwinkle from this round, but George95 defaulted. A "hurt" ozzz2002 took out his crystal ball, dusted it well, and gazed intently into it. He almost picked the whole lot as a result, missing only the Maharashtra-Baroda match! He shoots up the ladder, all the way from bottom to just 2 points behind leader gtho4. wwe84 is still searching for his "Ranji crystal" and so takes a second spoon in as many rounds. gtho4 continued to have a second good round in a row, while srini701 wasn't as lucky, and takes a tumble down the ladder.

It's turning out to be a strange season for the traditional "big" names of Indian domestic cricket. Defending champions Vidarbha are in 4th place in their group after 3 rounds. Traditional powerhouses Mumbai, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and Punjab are all languishing in the lower half of the tables too. There were 6 outright results this round, and Kerala kind of 'upset' a stronger Bengal to win outright. Rajasthan continues to surprise, winning its 3rd match in a row...something unheard of in last many years! Odisha and Jammu/Kashmir had their first wins of the season too.

paper_aero picks up the round's honours to move into the lead, but our comp is pretty close too...gtho4, ozzz2002. Howie72 and Elftwinkle, all had good rounds as well and there's nothing between the top 5 at this point. LeoDaVinci takes his first spoon, but with only 1/3rd of the season done, it's still early days for everyone.

This season's Ranji Trophy suddenly burst into action on the last day of round 4. There were at least 7 to 8 matches meandering towards a draw and a sedate 3 or 1 point for the draw on offer, before a flurry of action saw as many as 11 outright results by the end of the day. I was following the Hyderabad-Himachal Pradesh action closely. After 3 days just the first innings was completed. On the 4th day, the Himachal batsmen crumbled all of a sudden to a Hyderabad medium fast bowler to go crashing to a 10-wicket defeat. Kerala had won their last 2 matches, but crashed to a defeat this round. Mumbai and Delhi both lost outright (to be fair, both teams lost many of their key players who are in Australia right now), as did Tamil Nadu. There were wins for Services and Assam too this round.

All these results meant a lot of points on offer for us here. Howie72 did well to grab his first HoF and move past gtho4 into second place, but just about. Most of us did well this round but ozzz2002, ElfTwinkle, George95 and wwe84 would certainly have wished a result or two went their way. Our whole table would have looked a lot different then!

This season's Ranji Trophy continues to be topsy-turvy with no team being able to maintain 2 good back-to-back performances. Five teams that won in last round (Hyderabad, Karnataka, Odisha, Punjab, Assam) all crashed to defeats this round. Himachal Pradesh bounced back from last round's defeat to a big win this time. Madhya Pradesh made it 2 wins on the trot though and Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh keep winning in Group C.

There were 2 defaults this round (LeoDaVinci and ozzz2002) but most of us had a fine run this round. wwe84 had it best and he takes his first HoF for the season, though he stays put in the cellar. Howie72 takes the spoon and drops a point behind gtho4 for the podium position while paper_aero extends his lead at the top of the pile to the season's best. With three rounds remaining, I still feel our comp is wide open.

There were 8 more outright results this round, meaning lots of points for teams and for us. Five teams will qualify for the knock-outs from groups A and B combined, and there is a lot of jostling for positions. Saurashtra have pulled ahead to be on 25 points after their win against Maharashtra. Kerala are second with 20 points, courtesy their bonus-point win against Delhi. Below them, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha are all on 18 points. Himachal Pradesh have made a surprise surge and are on 16 points, and although Tamil Nadu are in the 12th place, they have 12 points - one win away from vaulting into the top three. Group C has Rajasthan as the runaway toppers with 34 points. Uttar Pradesh have 25 points, while Jharkhand have 24. Two teams qualify for the knockouts from here.

With 3 rounds left, paper_aero seems to be cruising towards the title here, and gtho4 is doing his best to keep pace with him. They both had identical scores this round despite having 2 matches different (both ended in draws!). Howie72 and ElfTwinkle are currently jostling for the last podium spot, though with 3 rounds remaining, the rest of us can still hope for a miracle or two smile wwe84 traded his last round winner medal with a spoon this round.

It turned out to be a closely contested round this time. Seven matches had outright results including 2 very close matches (JK/Odisha and Assam/Goa). Another 3 matches (involving Mumbai, Hyderabad and Andhra) almost produced thrilling outright results on the last day before the teams settled for draws. It is turning out to be a close race for the knockout berths with most teams blowing hot and cold alternately....Himachal continues to surprise and are now up to second spot after beating Tamil Nadu (Saurashtra continue to lead table).

LeoDaVinci takes his first winner's medal for the season, but the 2 spooners this round (ozzz2002 and George95) aren't too far behind. With 2 rounds remaining, our podium will most likely come from the top 4 only now.

It continued to be a result-oriented Ranji Trophy as 10 more matches had outright results. With knock-out berths up for grabs, especially in Groups A and B from where 5 teams in all qualify, teams went all out for a result. 43-time champions Mumbai are knocked out after their loss and they cannot finish in top 5 now. Another multiple-time champion Delhi is alive, but only theoretically. Other recent champions Karnataka and Gujarat, and current champions Vidarbha are still in the running though for a top 5 finish from groups A and B.

Those who are out of running for a quarterfinal spot are: Hyderabad, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Mumbai, Andhra, Maharashtra, Railways and Chhattisgarh. That still leaves a whopping 10 teams who have a chance, with only one round remaining.

Our comp here too is all but over bar the shouting. paper_aero has probably done enough to guarantee himself the top spot ahead of gtho4. ElfTwinkle will still fancy her chances of knocking gtho4 off the second spot, while Howie72 is just about alive for a bronze medal. It's also a tussle between ozzz2002, George95, and wwe84 to avoid the cellar.

It turned out to be a fine last round of league matches. With only 1 team sure of their knock-out place from Groups A and B before the round began (Vidarbha), 4 places were up for grabs and the matches were all very exciting and surprising. Karnataka lost to Baroda inside 2 days and both teams had to wait nervously for 2 days to find their fate ... Karnatake eventually still went through, but Baroda was pipped on net quotient! Madhya Pradesh just needed a first innings lead against Andhra to qualify ... instead they were blown away on their home ground ... both Bengal and Punjab had to win and it did look like Punjab would, till Bengal staged a remarkable comeback to draw over the last 2 days.

But the most thrilling match was between Himachal and kerala, where a stirring fourth-innings chase by Kerala handed them a victory and six points, vaulting Kerala into the Ranji Trophy 2018-19 quarter-finals. Kerala joins Vidarbha, Saurashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand (from plate group) in the quarter-finals.

It was almost over in our comp too, but gtho4 gave paper_aero a real push in the final round before settling for silver. Elftwinkle got an almighty scare from Howie72 before she secured her bronze. George95 defaulted the last round and was almost pushed into the cellar by wwe84.

Thank you all for taking part and hoping to see you all again when the next season starts...
