The buzz of cricket in India is at its peak as visiting Australian team is here and playing some exciting cricket, but there is another cricket tournament going on in the country, which is also giving some close finishes. We are talking about Vijay Hazare Trophy which has reached its semi-final stage.

Yesterday, Bengal managed to pull a stunning victory against Maharashtra in the fourth quarter-final. Manoj Tiwary led team chased down a mammoth total of 318 while having four wickets in hand. Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly is looking very pleased with his team’s performance. Now, he will fly to Delhi for giving some tip before the all-important match against Dhoni-led Jharkhand.

Ganguly said “You give just two more years to this side. Everyone will see what they are capable of. If we can find out a few more talented players you will see a transformed Bengal side, who are more aggressive and more positive on the field.”

Also, he revealed about Vision 20-20, which will be very handy for giving such results on the domestic circuit. “If you follow a process, the results will come automatically. Earlier we had two days league matches but now it is played for three days. You are playing first class matches which are played for four days and here in club cricket the players were playing for just two days, anyone can understand no players will come out in this process. You have to study hard to get good marks in the Madhyamik exam, as there is no shortcut for success,” he added.

The president of CAB praised Bengal team, who has won their last 14 out of 15 matches while saying that Bengal is a good side and they were unfortunate in Ranji Trophy, where one match was abandoned due to massive fog and lost one close encounter against Baroda. If we had won those two matches the results in Ranji Trophy could have been much different,” he said.

Dada was unhappy as the match between Bengal and Jharkhand will be played at Palam cricket ground as Feroz Shah Kotla is not hosting any match. He concluded while saying “Jharkhand should have played their matches at the Feroz Shah Kotla with proper security.”
