Two ‘Bihar Teams’ Show Up for Ranji Trophy Match Against Mumbai, Leading To An Animated Exchange

<p>In a strange development for the Ranji Trophy, two “Bihar Teams” showed up for Friday’s encounter versus Mumbai at Patna’s Moin-ul-Haq Stadium. The outcome of the protracted struggle between opposing groups within the Bihar Cricket Association was evident to everybody. An Indian Express story said that there was a heated argument and a little altercation between the officers. According to the source, the Ranji Trophy season opening was scheduled to begin at approximately 11 am, but it had to be stopped by local authorities.</p>

<p>The squad selected by BCA President Rakesh Tiwary was the one that participated in the match. The other, whose sponsor was secretary Amit Kumar, was barred.</p>
<p>“That is the correct squad that we selected based just on merit. It is evident that Bihar is producing talented people. Sakib Hussain, one of our cricket players, gets selected for the IPL. A 12-year-old prodigy is making his gaming debut. It can’t be the genuine team since the suspended secretary is selecting the other, Rakesh Tiwary told the publication.</p>
<p>On the other hand, Amit Kumar declared: “First things first: I am the official secretary of the BCA and I won the election. One cannot put a secretary on leave. Furthermore, how does a president choose a team? Has Roger Binny, the head of the BCCI, ever been seen introducing the team? Secretary Jay Shah’s signature will always be visible.”</p>
<p>A number of players’ cricket careers may seem to be mostly unaffected by the most recent edition of the top domestic tournament on the periphery, particularly given that India’s batting and bowling lineups are all but certain going into Test matches.</p>
<p>For the five-match home series against England later this month, the selectors may also decide without making many changes. Along with this, India will only play red-ball cricket at home against Bangladesh in September due to an abundance of white-ball competitions, such as the T20 World Cup in June and the Indian Premier League.</p>
<p>Thus, it may seem as if there is no need to labor in certain isolated areas of the nation throughout the course of the next month or two. But underneath that stolid exterior of insignificance, there’s really a lot more going on with this Ranji Trophy.</p>
<p>Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara, two 35-year-old stalwarts whose Test futures are now in limbo, will be the center of attention.</p>
<p>In order to remain on the selectors’ radar, Rahane and Pujara will need to score some significant runs in the competition—especially considering that a number of younger players are also fighting for a berth in the national squad.</p>
<p>Rahane is going to have to shoulder more weight. The graceful batter will have to guide Mumbai to a much-needed championship in addition to his own comeback.</p>
<p>The 41-time winners have battled to maintain their dominance on the home circuit since their last Ranji victory in the 2015–16 season.</p>
