After waiting for 18 years, the cricket team of Uttarakhand will play Ranji Trophy. In the coming season, BCCI has decided to set up a nine-member ‘Coordination Committee’ to monitor the debut of the state in the domestic cricket of India.
Following a meeting today, the Administrator’s Committee chairman Vinod Rai said that Uttarakhand will make a debut in the Ranji Trophy.
