India’s First-class domestic competition, the Ranji Trophy 2022/23, will kick off on Tuesday December 13 and last for ten weeks with the final set to start on Thursday February 16 – here are the full squad lists for the Ranji Trophy 2022/23.
The competition has been split into the two categories, Elite and Plate, meaning there will be two seperate winners from the divisions. The format had been followed until 2019/20, after which the tournament had to be stalled for the first time in history due to Covid-19. Upon inception, the teams were combined, which led to obvious mismatches in quality. For example, Jharkhand racked up the highest lead ever in a First-class game (1,008) against Nagaland last season.
The return to the old format will reduce contests of this nature. The two Plate finalists will be promoted to the Elite group in 2023/24, while the bottom two teams of the Elite group will be relegated.
The tournament will feature several big-name players, especially for the round after India’s Test match tour of Bangladesh. Ajinkya Rahane will captain Mumbai and Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal are captains of Andhra and Karnataka respectively. Sarfaraz Khan topped the run scoring charts last year, scoring 928 in nine innings, and will step out again for Mumbai this year, while Jaydev Unadkat’s record-breaking 67 wickets boosted helped to earn him a Test squad recall for the first time since his only appearance in 2010/11.
