The maiden title glory for Vidarbha gained after crushing experienced Delhi side.
What we say the Vidarbha finally did it. From the start of the tournament, they looked like a complete powerhouse have all elements in their team. They played exceptional cricket throughout the whole season. Vidharbha bowlers greatly impressed everyone in this season. There is one stand out bowler Rajneesh Gurbani who bowled magical spell in the semi-final against Karnataka. In that match, he took 12 wickets. even in the finals when he was not well then also he provides crucial breakthroughs to his team. he picked 8 wickets in the finals.
Apart from him, there are many stands out players from Vidarbha team. They rise according to the situation. In their 1st innings, Lower order played an astonishing knock for their team .Especially the wicketkeeper-batsman Akshay Vinod Wadkar who scored 133 runs. At one moment in their innings, Vidarbha seemed in trouble when they lost the wicket of Wasim Jaffer at the score of 246/6. But Akshay created two big partnership with Aditya Sarwate (79) and Siddesh Neral (74). Takes the game away from Delhi reach.
Delhi played very poor cricket in the final. Their openers failed in both innings. Big names like Gautam Gambhir and Rishab Pant could not able to make an impact in the match. Rishab pant who recon as future and successor of Ms. Dhoni was not able to make his mark in last one year. He is ruining his chances of playing in India team by throwing his wickets. He played very low percentage shot. That is a reason selector are also started looking beyond him by neglecting him in the last two-three series.At the present, they are investing in Shreyas Iyer and he is paying off well by performing brilliantly against Srilanka in ODI. Rishab pant needs to improve his game. His shot selection is a necessity to develop.
For Delhi, their is only one man show from both the department of batting and bowling. During batting, Dhruv Shorey was the only batsman who scores 145&32 in 1st and 2nd innings. Navdeep Sani was the only bowler for Delhi who made trouble in front of Vidarbha batsman. he took 5 wickets haul in the 1st innings.
