“It has been an extended season for both the teams here.” Delhi coach KP Bhaskar was only talking tongue in cheek, but he delivered the underlining statement ahead of the Ranji Trophy final between his young team and Vidarbha from Friday. These are untested waters for both sides. Delhi last lifted the trophy back in 2007-08, while Vidarbha have never made it this far in five decades of playing first-class cricket.
But then, this has been the trend in the Ranji Trophy over the last decade – throwing up unexpected finalists. Rajasthan started it and repeated it. The likes of Maharashtra, Saurashtra and Gujarat followed suit. This final, though, is a bit different. The MPCA Holkar Stadium will hosts two teams which were not expected to come this far. The usual talk about conditions, pitch and team combinations was benched for the day as the occasion dominated proceedings.
