Hyderabad Cricketers aim for glory: BMWs, Ranji Trophy on target

Will the BMWs be a reality? Only time will tell. But one thing is certain: Hyderabad cricket is back in the spotlight, and the journey towards Ranji Trophy glory has just begun.

The Hyderabad cricket team is back in the big leagues, and their sights are set on even greater heights! After topping the Plate Group and securing promotion to the Elite division of the Ranji Trophy, the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has made an audacious offer to further motivate the players: win the Ranji Trophy in the next three years, and each player gets a brand new BMW car and a purse of one crore for the team!

This announcement comes after a turbulent period for Hyderabad cricket. Relegation to the Plate Group in 2023 was a stark reminder of the need for change. However, under the new leadership of Arishnapally Jagan Mohan Rao, the team has clawed its way back and is eager to prove itself.

While winning the Ranji Trophy within a year might be a tall order, Jagan Mohan believes the incentive will provide much-needed fuel for the players as per The New Indian Express. He also acknowledges the need for a strong cricketing infrastructure and has unveiled ambitious plans to revamp the system.

New Academies, Upgraded Facilities:

  • Four satellite academies across the city to scout and nurture young talent.
  • Mini stadiums in each district headquarters for talent identification and training.
  • Revamping of the iconic Moin-ud-Dowlah tournament.

Women’s Cricket Gets a Boost:

  • Legendary cricketer Mithali Raj to guide the HCA with her expertise.
  • A dedicated academy for women cricketers is in the pipeline.

A New Home for Hyderabad Cricket:

  • Recognizing the limitations of the current stadium, the HCA plans to build a new facility with a larger capacity and improved amenities.

Jagan Mohan’s vision extends beyond immediate results. He aims to build a sustainable cricketing ecosystem in Hyderabad, one that produces future champions and brings glory to the state. The players, now armed with a tempting incentive and a revamped system, are ready to rise to the challenge and make their mark on the Ranji Trophy stage.

Will the BMWs be a reality? Only time will tell. But one thing is certain: Hyderabad cricket is back in the spotlight, and the journey towards Ranji Trophy glory has just begun.
