The business end of Indian domestic season has begun with the reputed Ranji Trophy taking place across the country. We at RCB will follow our stars during the whole tourney and give all our fans an update about their performances.
To start off with Karnataka played against UP at Meerut and our RCBian heroes didn’t disappoint. Manish Pandey struck a mammoth 194 and 33 while Rahul Dravid scored 97 and a quickfire 51* (44). A new bowling star for Karnatka and RCB was born with A Mithun (remember this tall lanky guy who played in IPL-2 match against Mumbai Indians), picking up a Hat-trick on debut as well as a total match haul of a whopping 11 wickets. He literally broke the back of UP batting line-up won the game for Karnataka. A RCBian in UP side was Bhuvneshwar Kumar who performed well with both bat and ball.
Pankaj Singh playing from Rajasthan put in a match winning performance by picking up 11 wickets in the match.
Wasim Jaffer Captaining Mumbai could manage just 4 runs though under his leadership Mumbai got a first innings lead and thus 3 points over Punjab.

Four of our players are involved in two series being played. Here is a quick stat report on their performance till now. While PK and Virat have fared pretty well, Cameroon White has stood out in the Aussie middle order. Ross Taylor no matter how many ducks you score you still will remain our hero :-) . He is yet to fire in the series against Pakistan but believe me when he does, we all will surely know about it.
