Delhi vs Vidarbha, Ranji Trophy 2017-18 final, Day 1

Early strike
Aditya Thakare, bowling his maiden over in first-class cricket, has struck. Opener Kunal Chandela was forced into playing at a delivery which was angling in, before it got the outside edge to first slip. Even Dhruv Shorey has been troubled by his line and movement. It’s a superb start for Vidarbha.

Toss:
Vidarbha have won the toss and elected to field. There is usually some assistance for the pacers in the morning session and Vidarbha pacers would look to take advantage of that. There are no surprise selections coming from the Delhi camp, but Vidarbha have selected the young Aditya Thackeray, who was in the Under-19 probables, ahead of Lalit Yadav. The experienced Karn Sharma also doesn’t find a place in the side.

Delhi: Gautam Gambhir, Kunal Chandela, Dhruv Shorey, Nitish Rana, Himmat Singh, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Vikas Mishra, Manan Sharma, Akash Sudan, Navdeep Saini, Khulwant Khejroliya

Vidarbha: Faiz Fazal (c), Sanjay Ramaswamy, Wasim Jaffer, Ganesh Satish, Apoorv Wankhade, Akshay Wadkar (wk), Aditya Sarwate, Akshay Wakhare, Rajneesh Gurbani, Aditya Thakaray, Siddesh Neral

Build Up
Hello and welcome to the final of Ranji Trophy 2017-18. Having led a pretty dominant campaign so far in the tournament, Delhi and Vidarbha have rightfully secured their positions in the final. Not too many pundits would have put their money on either of the sides to be reaching the last two, but they have done this at the back of a comsistent and commanding performances by batsmen and bowlers.
