Indian Domestic Cricket: Ranji Trophy 2016 - 6 October to 10 December

We had the first comp in the premier cricket tournament of India last year with 9 runners. Looking to see if we can have a second edition of the same.

~ 28 teams divided into 3 groups (each team plays all others in its group before knock outs from quarterfinals).
~ Change this year is NO HOME MATCHES FOR ANY TEAM....every single league match is being played on neutral venues.
~ We only pick one of the 2 teams....and score as many points as the teams we pick score (for win or draw)
~ We pick 9 rounds of league matches (13 matches each round)

Current champions are Mumbai. More details on last year's tournament can be had from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015%E2%80%9316_Ranji_Trophy

Info on this year's tournament: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016%E2%80%9317_Ranji_Trophy

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

A warm "Welcome" to the 10 who lined up for this year's Ranji Trophy, India's domestic Cricket Championships. It is the same number as last year, but we welcome shadowmyst2004 to the comp, in place of dg_dave.

The Indian Cricket Board is trying different things to ensure more result-oriented cricket and as part of that, they have done away with "home" matches this year. All the matches will be played on neutral venues, to ensure neither team gets any advantage of the pitch. There also is a new team added to the competition this year in the form of Chattisgarh. The newcomers made a winning start too, getting the better of Tripura. There were 5 other results in the opening round, with defending champions Mumbai squeaking past Tamil Nadu by 2 wickets. One of the strong favorites, Delhi won their opening fixtures too, and there were wins for Madhya Pradesh, Hyderabad and Jharkhand as well.

George95 got off to a flying start here, picking 47 of the possible 57 points on offer. ElfTwinkle had a very good opening round too. wwe84 did not, and starts from the bottom of the ladder.

There were 8 more results from round 2. Tripura won a first-class match after more than 4 years...and as should be expected, ozzz managed to side with the underdogs again smile Lots of results in Group C, where the bottom 10 teams play, with wins for Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Haryana as well. Only Andhra managed to stave off defeat in this group, holding debutants Chhatisgarh to a close draw. In the top groups, there were big wins for Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Odisha, which surprised the more fancied Saurashtra. Neutral venues sure are producing some funny results smile

We played a big round of musical chairs here. wwe84 went from spoon to HoF and zoomed up the table. paper_aero had a big round and he's right up there too. ElfTwinkle was consistent with her first round show and she takes the lead at the top. George95 could not keep up his consistency and he falls big time. illiniman14 and Howie72 continue to travel together despite having different picks...gtho4 takes the round's spoon while our debutant here shadowmyst2004 defaulted the round and so falls to the cellar as a result frown

There were some really good matches this round. Many matches which seemed to be drifting to dull draws came alive on the last day. Karnataka thrashed Delhi inside 3 days but elsewhere; Andhra pulled off a surprise win over Jammu & Kashmir after being behind for 3 days; Haryana and Chhatisgarh were neck to neck for 3 days before Haryana scampered away to the win; Bengal beat Punjab while Railways collapsed on the last day against Gujarat. Maharashtra, Hyderabad and Assam all clung to draws against their opponents on the last day to salvage a point each.

paper_aero continued his good run of form here and landed his first HoF to take over the lead from ElfTwinkle, who also had another good round herself. The rest of us all had an average round there, with Howie72 probably wishing he had one too, after landing the round's spoon and slipping to the tail. Shadowmyst continued to stay away after lodging picks in round 1....as a tipping comp newbie, maybe he didn't know he had to lodge tips every round? confused

Only 4 outright results this round, but the cricket continued to be exciting. Karnataka won their second match in a row and have moved to the top of Group B. Andhra got the better of Haryana, while Railways continue to slip. Bengal beat them in this round. Gujarat easily beat Uttar Pradesh. Elsewhere Hyderabad was robbed of a sure win by bad weather, while both Goa and Tripura would have felt they should have won their match. Odisha also hung on to a grim draw against Delhi.

ElfTwinkle continues her fine run of consistency this season and with her first HoF, vaults back to first place. Sharing the HoF this round with her are gtho4, Howie72, and srini701....all with different picks! This leaves us with only ozzzz2002 and illiniman14 looking for their first HoF this season! wwe84 landed a second spoon for the season and slipped back a little.

Ever heard of pollution forcing the abandonment of a cricket match? Welcome to New Delhi, capital of India sick frown Two matches had to be put off to a different date and venue after extremely heavy smog and pollution forced the shut down of the country's capital for 4 days after Diwali, the festival of lights (and noise crazy )

Elsewhere, there were results all over the place. Karnataka is turning into a bully in Group B while Mumbai is just inching ahead of the rest in Group A. Group C is wide open though and any team seems capable of beating the rest on its day.

Over here in our comp, paper_aero and ElfTwinkle continue to play musical chairs at the top. ozzz2002 is doing his best to keep up with them, while the rest of us continue our scramble up and down the order. We had a good round there, with wwe84 unfortunate to take the spoon despite a very decent 32/56!

Mumbai won again to move to top of Group A. Railways won their first match of the season to get off the bottom of the group. Karnataka won their 4th match in a row to move to top of Group B. Jharkhand continue to be the biggest improvers of the season in that group and they won too, and are in second place, ahead of teams like Delhi and Maharashtra (which won too). Andhra won in this round too and are on top of a very competitive Group C.

illiniman14 almost picked the whole lot ( shocked ) missing only the upset win of Railways! He moves up the table with that HoF show. ozzz2002 picked up his first spoon and tumbled down. Our leaders ElfTwinkle and paper_aero continue their musical chairs for the 5th round in a row...will they keep this up till the last round? Let's wait and see smile

Only 5 outright results this round, but the race for the qualifying spots is becoming tighter in every group with just 2 rounds left to play. There are at least 4 teams in every group which can qualify for the top 3 in Groups A and B (where 3 go through) and in Group C (only top 2 move on). Mumbai, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Punjab and possibly Bengal are fighting for the top 3 slots in Group A (Uttar Pradesh and Baroda struggling to survive relegation). Karnataka, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and possibly Delhi looking for quarterfinal spots from Group B (with Saurashtra and Assam fighting to stay on in the elite groups). Andhra, Hyderabad, Haryana and even Himachal Pradesh in the race for the 2 spots from Group C.

Our musical chairs here between the two leaders finally stopped with ElfTwinkle continuing to stay ahead this time. srini701 joins the race for the top spot with a HoF round, while ozzz2002 continues to slip with another spoon. He has 2 rounds left to fall behind gtho4 and wwe84 wink

There were 9 outright results this round and not all as we expected! Some big names lost, to make matters very interesting, both for qualifying for the quarterfinals of the championship, AND in our own competition here. Mumbai, Jharkhand and Karnataka have assured themselves of berths in the last 8 no matter how they fare in the next round, but there are at least 8-10 teams vying for the remaining 5 places depending on how the last round goes!

Assam (semifinalist in 2015-16) lost again, and are relegated to Group C for next year. Uttar Pradesh won this round, but Baroda lost, and these two play each other in last round. These 2 and Railways are battling to stay atop from the other Group. Gujarat and Tamil Nadu play each other, and both are in running for a last 8 spot from group A (along with Mumbai)...Madhya Pradesh, who won in this round, play Bengal and have an extreme outside chance of qualifying.

In group B, Jharkhand and Karnataka have made it, but Odisha, who won in this round, Delhi and Maharashtra, all have a chance of joining them. Delhi plays Saurashtra, while Odisha and Maharashtra take on the group toppers.

Hyderabad is more or less through from group C after their 3rd win in a row, but Andhra complicated matters for themselves by losing this round. Haryana is also in with a chance from this group.

None of us picked the loss of Karnataka, while only Howie72 went for Odisha's win. Goa also had only 2 backers amongst us. The mixed bag of results have meant a very tight race for the top spot for us too. George95 has an outside chance of getting to the podium should one of the top 3 slip in the final round.

There was plenty of drama in the last round of the matches before the 8 quarter-finalists were decided. Delhi had to win and they had Saurashtra on the mat on the opening day itself. But Saurashtra fought back remarkably well and beat a Delhi side that had both Shikhar Dhawan and Gautam Gambhir, by 4 runs, to knock one of the favorites for the title, out. Karnataka had only 9 men at a time for their match against Maharashtra, after one player got injured and another got a India call for the Test. Maharashtra, which had to win too to qualify, refused to allow substitute players. The move however backfired terribly and Karnataka knocked the stuffing out of the Maharashtra side. Andhra needed a win after losing very uncharacteristically in their last match while Hyderabad only needed a point by salvaging the match. Weather played a huge part in that match and Hyderabad got away on the last day, 5 down for literally nothing, chasing 200+....

One match was not played this round, but the 8 qualifiers have been decided: Mumbai, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu from Group A, Jharkhand, Karnataka and Odisha from Group B, and Hyderabad and Haryana from Group C, will now fight it out for the trophy in a knock-out format. Railways and Assam have been relegated to group C for next year.

George95 and srini701 went for some wild picks in the last round hoping to turn the tables on the toppers. Unfortunately for them, most did NOT come off cry . Howie72 started slow, but picked up momentum towards the end, but he probably left his run a couple of rounds too late to make a difference. ElfTwinkle was never below 1-2 the whole season shocked and after 5 rounds of musical chairs (in a 9 round comp), looked set to take the title in the last round. But a couple of her picks misfired in the last round and paper_aero had a real solid final round. And so we have yet another comp this year where the defending champion did not manage to retain their title....Congrats to paper_aero for a very fine win and congrats to ElfTwinkle for a superb consistent show the whole 9 round!

With a most sincere thank to all of you for lasting the whole competition, and looking forward to hosting you all again next year....
