Goa’s Ranji campaign for the 2015-2016 season begins this week and so does India’s home series with South Africa. After much deliberation, our selection committee has zeroed in on the best talent available.
Playing for one’s State is always a matter of pride – whatever is the sport. Being in the Ranji team is the first step in aiming to play for one’s country. It’s been years now since Goa was given Ranji status. Somehow, our boys have yet to make it to the top. This is no cause for worry.
After diligence, Goa will have its boys playing for the country. Being selected for India will mean big. But, excelling for India on the pitch will be better. That is the day every Goan is waiting for. With the executive committee that I have, that wait will not be too long.
The onus is now on the selected lads. It is up to them to deliver good deliveries and score big runs !
