Ranji Trophy Finals : First Innings Lead winnings

Post by S.Jagadi » Wed, 03 Apr 1996 04:00:00


Now that Karnataka won the Ranji Trophy by virtue of 1st innings lead, it would
be interesting to see how many times in the last say 15 years has the trophy
_NOT_ been won on 1st innings lead, ie the match went on till completion. I
think the Haryana-Bombay final a few years ago falls under this category.

ASLAM HELP !!!

Ranji Trophy Finals : First Innings Lead winnings

Post by Jai Nataraja » Thu, 04 Apr 1996 04:00:00

I notice from 1944-45 to 1954-55 Holkar was in the finals
10 times of 11 and won it 4 times. Can some cricket-phile
comment on the following :
1. Where is Holkar ?
2. What did it become after 1955
3. Who were the leading players who made it such a power in that
era ?

Thanks

   Holkar refers to a kingdom in Central India, ruled by, surprisingly
   enough, the Holkars :-) Their capital city was Indore (now in Madhya
   Pradesh).

Quote:
>2. What did it become after 1955

   Now this is from CricInfo - actually, originally from "A History of
   Indian Cricket", by Mihir Bose.

   [
Holkar: See Central India.  Played 1941-42 to 1951-52 in East
Zone.   Transferred to Central Zone 1952-53.  Changed title 1955-
56 to Madhya Bharat.  Now part of Vidarbha.
   ]

   And Central India, in turn is listed as:

   [
Central India (*): Formed 1932.  Played in East Zone until  1939-
40.  In 1941 jurisdiction taken over by Holkar.
   ]

Quote:
>3. Who were the leading players who made it such a power in that
>era ?

   Holkar had some local greats like the Nayudu brothers (CK & CS) and
   Mushtaq Ali and useful players like Chandu Sarwate, BB Nimbalkar
   (who almost broke Bradman's FC record score), etc. Teams run by
   princes often had 'imported' players (including non-Indians), so I'm
   sure other good players of that time must have been drafted in too.
   Hmm, come to think of it, Nimbalkar was probably an 'import'.
