Ranji Trophy Final to Grace Wankhede Stadium from March 10-14

The Ranji Trophy final, the pinnacle of India's domestic cricket tournament, will be held at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai from March 10 to 14. The announcement was made by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) after 41-time champions Mumbai secured their place in the final for the 48th time.

The Wankhede Stadium has been the heart of Mumbai cricket for nearly five decades, hosting countless memorable matches. "Considering the legacy of the tournament and the significance of this game for the Mumbai cricket community, it is only fitting that the final be played at the Wankhede Stadium," said MCA secretary Ajinkya Naik.

Mumbai's qualification for the final came after a dominant performance in the semifinals, where they defeated Tamil Nadu by an innings and 70 runs at the BKC ground. The team will now face the winner of the other semifinal clash between Vidarbha and Madhya Pradesh, which is currently underway at the VCA Ground in Nagpur.

Vidarbha, known for their strong batting lineup, extended their lead by 261 runs in the second innings, reaching 343 for six at the end of the third day. The team will be looking to continue their impressive form and secure a place in the final.

The Ranji Trophy final is a highly anticipated event in the Indian cricket calendar, attracting fans from across the country. The Wankhede Stadium, with its capacity of over 33,000, is expected to be packed with spectators eager to witness the culmination of the tournament.
