Ranji Trophy final: The Ranji Trophy season 2019-20 comes to an end on Friday, March 13. The final was played between Saurashtra and Bengal at Rajkot.
Saurashtra was declared winners on the basis of the first-innings lead after the match was drawn. Became the first champion in the 73-year history of the Ranji Trophy.
Many records were made this season, many players also retired. In the midst of all this, some such controversies also came to light, which people will remember for a long time.
One of those controversies was the Hindi speaking controversy. In fact, during the Ranji match played between Karnataka and Baroda in February, BCCI commentator Sushil Doshi made a controversial statement.
During the seventh over of Baroda’s second innings, Sushil said, “I like that Sunil Gavaskar does commentary in Hindi. They are also expressing their opinions related to the game in this language.”
Further, Sushil had said, “It seems good that Gavaskar dot ball is called ‘Bindi’ ball”. On this, another commentator Rajendra Amarnath said in response that every Indian should know Hindi because it is our mother tongue.
There is no other language than this. He said after this, “I get angry with those people who say that we are cricketers, should we still talk in Hindi?” If you are living in India, then you should speak Hindi, the mother tongue here.”
After this statement by the BCCI commentator, people on social media had said that stop imposing Hindi on people. Not every Indian need to come to Hindi.
Karnataka defeated Baroda by 8 wickets in that match. Baroda had scored 85 in the first innings and 296 in the second innings.
Karnataka won the match by scoring 233 in the first innings and 150 for 2 in the second innings.
