Indian domestic cricket

A Rajasthan fairytale

Akhila Ranganna

Bharat Sundaresan in the Indian Express looks at Rajasthan's journey from the bottom of the bottom of the Ranji table to becoming the champions this season.

It’s an amazing journey that kicked off with the Kanitkar-led team first dominating the lower division to earn the right to join the Elite teams at the quarter-final stage. Their win over Baroda in the final on Saturday—courtesy their narrow 33-run first innings lead—was their third big scalp of the season.
