The for second year in succession the the hosts Vidarbha Cricket team emerged champions in the Ranji Trophy final outplaying Saurashtra at the home ground of VCA Stadium in Jamatha today.Last Cricket season, Vidarbha created history when they bagged the coveted Ranji Trophy for the first time in the history in New Delhi and maintaining their winning spree, they lifted the trophy here.
The Vidarbha Cricket team has shown the potential in the first class Cricket and earned praise from all quarters. Today Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadanvis and Union Minister for Transport, Shipping and Ganga Rejuvenation, Nitin Gadkari joined in hundreds of Cricket fans in complementing the deserving Viodarbha team. Fadanvis in his official page posted not only congratulations but photo of jubiliant team. It was Nitin Gadkari who had organised a public felicitation of winning team of 2017-18 during his +Khasdar Krida Mahaotsava+ (Member of Parliament Sports Festival), here at Yashwant Stadium.
It was heartening to see entire champion Vidarbha Cricket team occupying a place on the stage with one specific colour T shirts during the opening ceremony.What a surprise, Bharat Ratna batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar himself was chief guest for the opening ceremony in a colourful function in late evening. Tendulkar was all praise for the Vidarbha team and felicitated them.
The young boys have shown not only skill and talents but a courageous team spirit to retain the trophy.It would be appropriate for the top political leadership of Fadanvis and Gadkari to again organize a felicitation function and extend monetary assistance to them. They should chalk out a plan to further boost the morale and give them scientific training if needed be appoint a national player or international player cum trainer. It will affect them psychology. Mere felicitation is not enough.
