Anureet singh and Rishi Dhawan have been phenomenal this Ranji season. They should be drafted into India side. We are not going to win any matches with a pace spearhead like Ishant Sharma. Zaheer Khan is on last legs. If they fail in NZ, they should be replaced by Anureet, Rishi, or Pankaj Singh. Please no more Vinay Kumar, Unadkat or Mohit Sharma.

It is heartening to note that all four quarter final matches were conclusive and were not decided on first innings lead.

Well Done Bengal. Its time to kick out Arindam Das & Subhomoy and rope in Manoj + another promising youngster in the middle order. Leave the pack to Ashok Malhotra & LRS. Assholes like Deep Dasgupta & bunch of CAB jokers should let the team devise its own strategy and get going in the winning ways. An occasional tip from Dada is welcome but street walkers like Arun Lal, Sanbaran, Raju, Chuni et al should not intervene.

Maco is s.s paul, the one who made a comeback this season after a prolonged injury

I wished Bengal would lose. Never agreed with their childish behaviour after the 'Mankaded' incident. Murali Kartik was justified in his action

Posted by   on (January 12, 2014, 8:14 GMT)

folks, pardon my ignorance, who is maco da?

Drop catches, lose matches. Looks like that's going to happen with Bengal.

Posted by GNANESHWAR on (January 12, 2014, 7:33 GMT)

i think Anureet singh, Rishi Dhawan , Vijay Zol, KL Rahul ,Samson deserves a chance to play for india.if they get selected it will be a nice chance to showcase their skills.Anureet and Rishi Dhawan are swing bowlers. They can swing the ball both the ways.Vijay zol and KL Rahul are good opening batsmen.They can be given a chance to play for india.Sanju is a good middle order batsmen. he is pretty much suited for t20 format.

Posted by   on (January 12, 2014, 2:00 GMT)

i hope vijay zol does not become another unmukth chand!!!!

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 13:15 GMT)

zaheer khan can sledge only.mithun and dinda have been already tasted the international sceen.rishi dhawan is a a t20 bowler like mohit sharma.taking wickets in ranii trophy is not a big achievement. who can bowl 140 plus name him in domestic he can only survive outside asia.

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 12:25 GMT)

an outright win on 4th day itself against last years winner Mumbai is really by Maharashtra team on wankhede stadium is really astonishing.an overall team performance by Maharashtra is really worth praising.conceding 122 runs lead of 1st inning to Mumbai it becomes more creditable for maharastra team.full credit goes to kedarjadhav/Vijay zol for their thinking and building winning runs score on their own and in really nice time.congratulations to surendra bhave and his deserving boys for excellent show off in this ranaji quarter finals.wishing to continue good performance and wishing best of luck for semis next week.

Posted by TNAmarkFromIndia on (January 11, 2014, 12:11 GMT)

Anand Jakhotia, but both the Mumbai coach and the Maharashtra bowlers agreed that the wicket was offering help to the fast bowlers. It can't suddenly change in one day from a good bowling wicket to a batsman's paradise, Give credit where it's due. Jadhav and Zol batted with great patience and calm in the first 20 overs or so, and when they had settled in, they took the attack to Mumbai and didn't give them any chance of coming back in the game.

Posted by VinodGupte on (January 11, 2014, 11:48 GMT)

both zol and jadhav will shine in this IPL. i hope zol plays all the matches. we have another 19-year-old superstar in the making after ViKo.

with no agarkar, rahane and kulkarni, mumbai were expected to struggle but this performance was not expected of them. i hope maharashtra wins the trophy this year. a lot depends on zol's batting now on.

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 11:24 GMT)

one bad session cost Mumbai dearly. getting bundled under 130 was too difficult to digest & 3rd day was best day for batting & Maharashtra held their forte without getting awed by the occasion. further zaheer's captaincy was pretty mediocre. after getting the wicket at the start, he just allowed the game to slip away by shying away from attack. probably he dint trust his fitness or dint want to risk his body. that's very poor for a bowling spear head.

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 10:59 GMT)

Somehow I am very happy that Mumbai lost. The same feeling I used to get when Ferrari lose a race during their glory years.

Posted by android_user on (January 11, 2014, 10:12 GMT)

vijay zol would play for the indian national side soon.

Posted by TNAmarkFromIndia on (January 11, 2014, 10:09 GMT)

One of the most hilarious sights of the day was the veteran international bowler Zaheer Khan sledging the 19-year-old Vijay Zol when the match was all but lost. Zol replied the very next ball with a cracking shot over mid-off. Shameful from Zaheer. Sledging was not going to save the game that was taken away from them due to his own poor captaincy.

Posted by jimbond on (January 11, 2014, 10:04 GMT)

Now that there is just one match left to be decided, hope more updates of the Bengal-Railway match are there. Would have loved a J&K upset, but that would have made it too easy for Karnataka. Punjab in Mohali will be a tough opposition. Sandeep Sharma and Kaul would be more lethal than Vinay Kumar/Mithun on these pitches. Its silly that people are still harping on the Mankading incident. I hope Murali Karthik wins it for Railways on the basis of his batting, and give Bengal (and its coach) something to remember for the next several years.

Posted by android_user on (January 11, 2014, 9:48 GMT)

Both zol and Jadhav deserve lot of credit. They should be selected for overseas India A team consistently .unfortunate that Zaheer didn't bowl at full tilt knowing what was at stake. Mumbai needs more youngsters and fresh legs. There's no X factor in their bowling.

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 9:26 GMT)

Well played Maharashtra! Kedar Jadhav is a solid batsman..unlucky to have not played for India till now. I hope he gets a good deal in IPL.

On Mumbai well they were without three key players Rohit, Ajinkya & Dhawal - their replacements were pretty mediocre.

Posted by android_user on (January 11, 2014, 9:06 GMT)

well done maharastra you deserve this win

Posted by TNAmarkFromIndia on (January 11, 2014, 8:59 GMT)

Zol and Jadhav have displayed an amazing display of batting to take Maharashtra through to a sensational win. They have absolutely dominated Mumbai since lunch, smashing a hapless Mumbai bowling attack to all corners. A Group C team is on the verge of beating the defending Ranji champions, and the way they have played in these last two days, no one can call this a fluke.

Credit goes to J and K here...they made Punjab work hard to beat them...JK were superb in few sessions but couldn't able to continue to carry momentem #very well played guys!!! #proud of parveez and co.

Posted by azhar_ahmed1 on (January 11, 2014, 8:01 GMT)

watching ranji listening to gavaskar n gavaskar commentary epic!! Maharashtra on course to making it to SF epic! Seems like quite and epic day

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 7:53 GMT)

Well done Maharashtra till now!! Keep going Vijay Jol and Jadhav!! Need 93 more runs to win! :) But UP disapoint after a good start in second innings :(

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 7:19 GMT)

I think Zaheer Khan Has some problem with Abdullah Zaheer Khan Not deserve in Indian Team... He is not supporting Abdullah... Bcose of Abdullah Mumbai make it in QF... Shame on Zaheer...

Posted by shri_sonar on (January 11, 2014, 7:11 GMT)

Really well played session by Maharashtra, Hope they win this by today and stage what would be rated as a great comeback in Ranji trophy against Mumbar.....

Posted by TNAmarkFromIndia on (January 11, 2014, 7:05 GMT)

Yesterday I said that Maharashtra will need to bat with grit and determination and have to be wary of their shot selection, and this morning they have done exactly that. Mumbai didn't help their cause by bowling far too wide in the initial overs. Zol and Jadhav have settled in nicely now and the runs are beginning to flow. History beckons, Maharashtra!

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 6:54 GMT)

Why is iqbal abdullah not bowling?

Posted by gsingh7 on (January 11, 2014, 6:48 GMT)

all over for j and k. 146/7 with hardeep retired hurt due to bouncer of vrv singh. now punjab have great chance to reach ranji final as semi is a home game where punjab have formidable record. chawla is only man standing between karnataka and victory. rasool. was overrated as batsman but he was taken cheaply second time around. come on punjab take 3 more wickets,asap

Posted by android_user on (January 11, 2014, 6:38 GMT)

benchod performance by zaheer khan

Posted by darrameezali on (January 11, 2014, 6:37 GMT)

154/8 at lunch, it seems all over for J&K...But still a good show put up by Rasool and co...

Posted by android_user on (January 11, 2014, 6:24 GMT)

Ganesh Satish was brilliant in seaming conditions in the 2010 mysore finals against the likes of venomous agarkar and kulkarni.. remember that support act to pandey ?

Posted by VIKRAMBHA on (January 11, 2014, 6:15 GMT)

i hope JK will win this one and create history

Posted by   on (January 11, 2014, 6:11 GMT)

It looks like Maharashtra have a definite plan & they r seeing off the morning session without losing any wickets after which it becomes a bit easy for them to bat. Great going guys :)

Posted by aasi55 on (January 11, 2014, 5:49 GMT)

J&K 121/3,Need a big partnership here.Rasool is the key player.Hope all other stick with him.

Posted by omni on (January 11, 2014, 5:20 GMT)

Bengal will be surely missing Manoj Tiwari in this match.

Posted by khanaltaf200 on (January 11, 2014, 5:17 GMT)

for jk to win majid dar has to click others will score their runs as usual

Posted by Syed_Fzee on (January 11, 2014, 4:39 GMT)

If J&K can tread through the morning session with further damage, another engrossing day is in the offing,,,,,as a cricket freak i really want parveez rasool leading the way frm here,,,he deserves an Indian cap

Posted by youni. on (January 10, 2014, 17:09 GMT)

jnk will hve to chance for win INSHALLAH They should persive on target by cool & calm inshallah they can make semi.

Posted by vardhanayaka on (January 10, 2014, 17:03 GMT)

if j&k wins,then they will make a history but i am hoping bengal to emarge as a winner but right now it looks a little bit unpredictable from here.i think its too early to comment on any thing because this is cricket and any thing can happen and we have seen that in the bengal vs tamilnadu match..... wait nd watch

Posted by android_user on (January 10, 2014, 12:57 GMT)

star shwing same mth on two channel instead they should go for two different matchs on both channels This should be better shwing both semifinals live rather then shwing one on bth channel

Posted by Al_Bundy1 on (January 10, 2014, 12:41 GMT)

A century and a 5 wkt haul for Parvez Rasool. This proves that he is the best spin bowling all rounder in India at the moment. Rishi Dhawan is the best pace bowling all rounder. Both of them deserve to play for India.

Hopefully J&K can win and go on to the semi finals. Kudos to the curators for preparing sporting pitches for the Ranji quarter finals. Teams playing for only first innings lead was the bane of Indian cricket.

Posted by gsingh7 on (January 10, 2014, 12:02 GMT)

big finish in baroda tomorrow. few quick wickets and it will be over for j and k. its david vs goliath with group a runner ups vs group c runner ups. 250 needed with 8 wickets remaining.

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 11:33 GMT)

Bengal lead by 134 runs at stumps day III huh and a 91 run partnership between LRS and W Saha. Captain and young gun we need more tomorrow.

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 11:30 GMT)

Seeing Rasool's performance, He would have been better choice than Stuart binny.

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 11:26 GMT)

Fingers are crossed for J & K... Hopefully they will win...

Posted by aijazulhaq on (January 10, 2014, 11:08 GMT)

Wishing J&K team all the best. They've been phenomenal this season...

Posted by khanaltaf200 on (January 10, 2014, 10:45 GMT)

i would pick rasool as he has lead from the front

Posted by android_user on (January 10, 2014, 10:39 GMT)

If only Rasool can cement his place in one of the IPL teams, he can prove his talent and experience to handle tough situations. In a team like DD, RR, KXIP or SRH he can get a chance and he surely would emerge victorious

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 10:28 GMT)

in the seaming conditions of newzealand.....binny will be a much better option than raina

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 10:22 GMT)

someone like stuart binny ..has benefited a lot from IPL.....hope he will perform d same in the bigger platform

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 10:09 GMT)

Karnataka batted pourly in the 2nd Innings...

Posted by azeemparayil on (January 10, 2014, 9:46 GMT)

a century and 5 wicket haul what should parvez rasool do more

Posted by avatima on (January 10, 2014, 9:30 GMT)

Would any of these matches get into 5th day?

Posted by lndlordd on (January 10, 2014, 9:11 GMT)

is sharath of Kar too injured to bowl in 2nd innings??

Posted by khanaltaf200 on (January 10, 2014, 8:24 GMT)

j & k are getting away from their best chance go jk go jk

Posted by android_user on (January 10, 2014, 7:50 GMT)

Fallah and Sanklecha on fire. I hope there's an upset in Mumbai.

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 7:32 GMT)

What is the score of Bengal vs Railways match?

Posted by SidsIPLTeam on (January 10, 2014, 7:19 GMT)

I think Bengal let a huge opportunity go with Railways reeling at 42/5. If they had managed to get Railways all out for 150, they could've sealed the match with a second innings score of 200+ only. But, now Railways will have ample confidence that they can come back and win from any position. The slender 3 run lead has only ensured that if the match is drawn then Bengal will go through, though it is highly unlikely because the teams don't look like lasting the distance.

Posted by tickcric on (January 10, 2014, 6:53 GMT)

What a contest Bengal and Railways are producing here!

Posted by gsingh7 on (January 10, 2014, 6:35 GMT)

good batting by yuvi and mandeep. now if only lower order score 50-60 runs then punjab is in strong position. batting last jk will struggle to score 200 plus against this good punjab bowling lineup on a seaming track.

Posted by android_user on (January 10, 2014, 6:31 GMT)

I think Samiullah beigh of J&K has the pace which Indian national side needs

zaheer not bowling as fast as expected after he looks good in shape

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 5:22 GMT)

@Speed gun! Like UFO sightings, we have our 150 kph sightings. It's easy being amused as an australian with a crazy pace battery. We have a pace low voltage

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 5:13 GMT)

yuvraj not doing himself any good by playing well below his standards, well if he can't perform in ranji then his time as a international star is over............

Posted by Shabir003 on (January 10, 2014, 4:59 GMT)

Great performance by jk how they played in this is really amazing.umar tatters the punjab batting in 2nd inng 39/5.hope they allout them below 150 and reach the target and make a history.i hope so after all jk is known for making history

Posted by   on (January 10, 2014, 4:58 GMT)

Every state team has atleast one or two players who are their just for numbers.Atleast 1 quality foreign player instead of these so called players who are never going to be big.

Posted by Shabir003 on (January 10, 2014, 4:56 GMT)

Punjab 39/5 come boys we want jk in semifinal.well played parviz rasool

Posted by Al_Bundy1 on (January 9, 2014, 18:27 GMT)

Go Rasool go !! Inspire your team mates, lead from the front, and win this game. That will bring attention to you and your team.

Posted by   on (January 9, 2014, 14:48 GMT)

Well Done Parvez ... That's How You are Supposed to Lead your Team ..... Cheers

Posted by gsingh7 on (January 9, 2014, 14:01 GMT)

punjab needs 200 more to ensure outright victory.match will be over in 4 days. no way it will be a draw on this seaming track. punjab need to get rasool for less than 50 in 2nd innings for an easy win.

Posted by android_user on (January 9, 2014, 13:21 GMT)

j&k batsmen should have been more positive in first innings.. anyways they r still doing well. match is evenly poised. well played skipper. other batsmen should have stayed for more time on crease. they need to come with positive frame of mind on third day. Punjab t 2 wickets down. hope j&k bowlers get them quickly....

Posted by Sir_Ivor on (January 9, 2014, 12:18 GMT)

A wonderful comment from roadhouseblues and I endorse it completely. Rasool is good but will have to wait for his turn. It may happen in the forseeable future also.But not because someone more comfortable with motorbikes than cricket wants him to be selected.

Posted by android_user on (January 9, 2014, 12:16 GMT)

lets wait and see if rasool can perform decently with the bowl in second innings guys

Posted by   on (January 9, 2014, 11:47 GMT)

is J&K match being telecasted?? Any link plz...

Posted by wapuser on (January 9, 2014, 11:42 GMT)

This really is un believable performance by jk Team...Rasool leading from d front..

Posted by Destructaholics on (January 9, 2014, 11:40 GMT)

Parvez Rasool is a captain material. Virat has a competition for captaincy here, the way Rasool has led J&K to the quarters is commendable.... hope they make to the semis!

Posted by espncricinfomobile on (January 9, 2014, 11:02 GMT)

well played parvez rasool......In shaa Allah jk will be in semifinals

Posted by sharma987 on (January 9, 2014, 10:41 GMT)

morally its 1st iinings win for J&k till now.punjab must have had their hearts in their mouthseems to be a real cracker ahead.wats the use of four channels if star sports cant telecast matches as interesting as these

Posted by   on (January 9, 2014, 10:37 GMT)

if draw in j&k vs punjab 1st innings lead (punjab) reach the semi final

Posted by android_user on (January 9, 2014, 10:37 GMT)

i think rasool needs to play more first class games.before he makes it to national playin 11....internatinal crickt requires more experience...moreover rasool shld perform consistently better with the bowl rather thn with bat....this 2013 ws nt grt for him....

Posted by GoldenRed on (January 9, 2014, 10:30 GMT)

Good to see matches are played on result oriented pitch rather than boring batting pitches where one team will have upper hand and win the matches through first innings lead.. Hope similar trend continues in semi's and finals. Also next season

Posted by roadhouseblues on (January 9, 2014, 10:29 GMT)

@Sharma 987, I would say it is a very poor comment from you that Rasool was not selected in the playing XI owing to team politics.... Ajinya Rahane and Manoj Tiwary have been excellent performers in the domestic circuit for ages and they have been perpetual bench warmers for the team. It is only fair that they be rewarded the opportunity first....So I would like to stand by what Kohli has done - He has given those who have been waiting in line for a MUCH longer time than Rasool an opportinity... This is in no way demeaning to Rasool - HE is a quality player and he will get his opportunity soon.....

I remember Honourable CM Omar Abdullah's comments which said 'Rassol could have rather stayed in India, rather than having gone all the way to Zimbabwe and not get a game' - I would have preferred if Kohli had said something like this - ' I don't push my nose into your state politics, do I? I would prefer it if you were to keep yours out of my team selection' ...........

Posted by android_user on (January 9, 2014, 10:27 GMT)

rasool is a great player of j&k and it is playing 11 in India team

@sajeel Majid - the team who scores more runs in 1st innings, thats unlikely for J&k now..

Posted by android_user on (January 9, 2014, 10:03 GMT)

Parveez Rasool is a class act big player big stage and 103 response from him......see u soon in 11 playing for india

Posted by sharma987 on (January 9, 2014, 9:50 GMT)

wat is required more from rasool to wake up the selectors.......kohli did a blunder by not playing him in even a single match in zimbabwe.....selectors shudnt repeat the same..........stop the politics in team selections now......

Can Anybody Tell Me If J&K vs Panjab Comesout as a draw which team will qualify for semis?

Posted by Shridhar099 on (January 9, 2014, 9:27 GMT)

J&K 243 for 6 against Punjab. Rasool on 93 and Beigh on 35.

Maharashtra 122 for 3 with Jadhav batting on 40 and Bawne on 60.

Railways go to tea at 123 for 5 in 41 overs, trail Bengal by 194 runs.

UP reach 100 but they are 6 down; 3 for VK and 2 for Mithun

@raghuforever, Once rahul dravid, Virat Kohli, Puara, Sachin etc etc were also domestic players. They haven't come from heavens and were the product of same domestic cricket set up which you are feeling proud to Insult. Shame!

Posted by GRVJPR on (January 9, 2014, 7:25 GMT)

@raghuforever , But that's what domestic games are for. It happens all across the world. If this was not the case every domestic player in world would have been an International. I hope you have enough brain to understand what I am sayin, but I doubt it!

Come on Bengal tigers..... go ahead...

Posted by raghuforever on (January 9, 2014, 6:48 GMT)

Looking at UP collapse before the lunch.. shows the quality of our domestic batsman when they are put against a decent bowling attack who have the international experience.

Posted by Shridhar099 on (January 9, 2014, 6:12 GMT)

Railways are 36 for 2 in 17 overs. Rangsen still to get off the mark, while Bhille is unbetaen on 18

Mumbai are now 11 short of 400. Abdulla is on 42

Adil and Parvez Rasool need to put a big partnership here. JK are 100 for 3

UP are 24 for 1. Vinay with the wicket of Mukul Dagar.

whats the Karnataka score?

Posted by gsingh7 on (January 9, 2014, 5:17 GMT)

j k at 62/3. now vrv and sandeep need to run through rest and take first innings lead. 4th innings target of 200-210 will be enough to win the match on this seaming track.

Posted by Manuvijay on (January 9, 2014, 3:47 GMT)

well played harbhajan. best performance of first day of quarters. well supported by sandeep. jk already 11-1 and cud have been 2 -11 if gony was more careful.punjab needs to win ranji this time as they were top team last year only to lose in semis. expectinhg a lead of 80-100 for punjab in first innings.

Congrts to Uthappa. Karnataka got good foundation & they should utilise it for a win.

great come back by Punjab, now J&K would be under pressure.

Posted by Harizs on (January 8, 2014, 10:57 GMT)

Robin Uthappa should make a come back in Indian Team he is only batsmen to play courageous shot ..walking down the pitch to fast bowler like lee..he can b a great assest to the team in longer format..its sad selectors look at age n select rather than talent..he would have done way much better thn rohit,raina and vijay if he was given such number of chances.pls publish

karnataka have done well against genuine fast bowlers and spinners but seem to lose out their wickets to the military medium pacers

Impressed with J&K.Hope to see them progress at further stages too!

Posted by BapiBariJa on (January 8, 2014, 8:03 GMT)

But J&K and Maharashtra are playing even better than other teams...

See Average age of team india's test side is 26 now and player like DHONI is needed to guide the young players and samson has lot of time to be in team india...
