Ranji Trophy 2021-22 Final: Live streaming, dates, venue, all you need to know – Firstcricket News, Firstpost
India’s prestigious domestic tournament, Ranji Trophy has now reached the final stage which begins 22 June, Wednesday. Forty-one time champions Mumbai will take on Madhya Pradesh, who are here for the first time since the 1998-99 season.
Madhya Pradesh have had an excellent outing this season as they topped the group stage without losing a single match. MP then went on to beat Punjab in the quarter-finals and Bengal in the semi-finals to reach the final.
Mumbai had a similar journey. They finished top of Group D after winning two and drawing one match. The most successful team in the history of the coveted domestic tournament created a record, beating Uttarakhand by 725 runs, which was the largest win in first-class cricket by runs, in the quarter-finals. Mumbai then won against Uttar Pradesh based on their first-innings lead.
MP have not won the title since 1953, whereas Mumbai will look to extend their mammoth trophy cabinet with their first title since 2016. Mumbai have lost the final only five times out of their 46 appearances, with a win percentage of 89.1 percent.
