Defending champions Vidarbha and Saurashtra take on each other in the final of Ranji Trophy 2018-19. The battle between India stars Cheteshwar Pujara and Umesh Yadav will make for an intriguing chief sub-plot when Saurashtra make one more attempt to win their elusive Ranji Trophy title against Vidarbha in the final.

The final will be a test of batting depths as both sides have capable willow wielders till No 9. Saurashtra coach Sitanshu Kotak and captain Jaydev Unadkat echoed the same sentiment, underlining that one or other player has raised his hand in different crunch situations. Sheldon Jackson (838 runs) and former India U-19 Desai (763 runs) have been the batting mainstays for Saurashtra when Pujara was on national duty.

It's ditto for defending champions. The run-chart led by Jaffer, has at least eight such batsmen, who have 30-plus average with five of them figuring in 10 matches. Their ever-dependable skipper Faiz Fazal (786 runs) and young Akshay Wadkar (680 runs) have made telling contributions in team's superb run with three hundreds each. The defending champions have the edge in bowling with Umesh in their ranks but Saurashtra skipper Jaydev Unadkat could also prove to be a handful if he gets some help from the track.
Umesh Yadav, who has a great track record on flat decks, has picked up 21 wickets in the last two matches. He straight away made an impact after coming back from Australia, troubling Uttarakhand and Kerala. Against Kerala in the semi-finals, he singlehandedly won the match with a 12-wicket haul. Along with Umesh there is current India A regular Rajneesh Gurbani, Yash Thakur, Suniket Bingewar and India U-19 World Cup winner Aditya Thakare. With 44 wickets left-arm spinner Aditya Sarvate has been a vital cog this season for the defending champions. (Inputs PTI).
