Nagpur, February 12- February 16 at 09:30 AM IST
Vidarbha successfully defended the Ranji 2019 title with 78 runs win over Saurashtra in the final and are up for their next challenge – Irani Cup 2019. Chasing 205 runs target in the second innings, Saurashtra was bowled out for mere 127 runs on the fifth day, courtesy Aditya Sarwate’s six-wicket haul and Vidarbha have been crowned Ranji Trophy Champions for the second successive time.
Along with the Ranji Trophy win, Vidarbha also booked a spot against Rest of India for the Irani Cup 2019. The BCCI has named a 15-man squad for the Irani Cup which will be led by test vice-skipper Ajinkya Rahane. The squad consists of a couple of international players along with some local talent picked after impressive Ranji season.
Mayank Agarwal, Hanuma Vihari, Shreyas Iyer, K Gowtham and Ishan Kishan are some of the big names in the squad along with skipper Ajinkya Rahane while Saurashtra wicketkeeper-batter Snell Patel and left-arm spinner Dharmendra Jadeja have been roped in on the back of stellar show in the Ranji Trophy.
Vidarbha clinched the Irani Cup title last year from Rest of India who were eyeing their third title win in a row. This year, it’s time for Vidarbha to retain their Irani Cup crown. Let’s see if they succeed in winning it for successive years or not!
The Jamtha wicket in Nagpur gets slow and low towards the end of the game and spinners can come handy at one point. Apart from that, it is usually a decent wicket with perks for both the sides- batting and bowling.

Fantasy picks from Rest of India
Ajinkya Rahane Mayank Agarwal, Hanuma Vihari, Anmolpreet Singh and Ishan Kishan will be in the batting ranks for Rest of India
Saurashtra left-arm spinner Dharmendrasinh Jadeja will pair up with off-spinning all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham to form the spin attack. D Jadeja has an impressive out in the Ranji Trophy and picked up over 50 wickets this season.
Karnataka’s Ronit More, Rajasthan’s Rahul Chahar and Kerala’s Sandeep Warrier will form the pace attack
Fantasy picks from Vidarbha-
Wasim Jaffer amassed 1037 runs in 15 innings for Vidarbha and will be their main man in the batting line-up
Apart from Wasim Jaffer, skipper Faiz Fazal who collected 752 runs in 16 innings, young Akshay Wadkar who slammed 725 runs in 16 innings including three centuries will be the key in batting
In bowling, Umesh Yadav will be the key. He was sensational in the quarterfinals and semifinals and bagged 21 wickets alone.
Spinners – Aditya Sarwate, Akshay Wakhare and Akshay Karnewar will be quite handy towards the end of the game as the wicket slows down eventually
