JK aim to end Ranji Trophy campaign on winning note

Out of seven matches played so far, JK have won only one, lost two and drew four conceding first innings lead in two games.

Accepting that their chances of qualification for the knockout stage of this year’s Ranji Trophy event are over, JK skipper Parvez Rasool on Wednesday said his team will try to end the season on a winning note.

JK stand at fifth place on the points table with 12 points from six matches. Out of seven matches played so far, JK have won only one, lost two and drew four conceding first innings lead in two games.

JK will play their last match of the season against Madhya Pradesh from January 29 to February 1 at Indore. M.P after playing six matches are placed eighth on the points table having failed to register a victory in this years’ campaign.

“The fight for our qualification into the next round is over and from here our fight for pride has started. We would like to end campaign on a winning note when we take field against MP on Thursday”, Parvez told Greater Kashmir over phone.

“We will try our best to get maximum points from the match. Though MP have not won any matches but the points table shows that they are tough to beat having drawn five out six matches played so far. That shows us that their defense is solid and it will not be easy for us to beat them. We need to apply ourselves strongly and focus on the job,” he said.
