Speaking after the match, Chandrakant Pandit said that he got emotional after the victory because in the 1998-99 Ranji Trophy season he had lost the final as a captain in Bengaluru. He said:

“It is a great memory that I had left 23 years back (he lost the Ranji Trophy final as MP captain in 1998-99) and it is a blessing that I come back here, and winning this trophy was fabulous. It is emotional because I missed out as captain on the same ground.”

Chandrakant Pandit further revealed why he opted to become the coach of Madhya Pradesh. He asserted:

“There is no a particular reason but I look for a challenging job where the teams are not doing well, there also should be youngsters and to develop that particular state. I used to play for MP and played for them for six years, I knew the culture and when the offer came to me in March, I did not hesitate. There were a couple of offers but I chose MP because I had left something 23 years back and God willingly brought me back to the same state.”

Former Madhya Pradesh and Mumbai player Chandrakant Pandit further elaborated:

“Sometimes the talent is there but you need to develop the culture and whatever the game demands I try to inculcate them. Aditya has been an outstanding captain, the plans and strategies we discuss, he was not afraid to implement them on the field. The captain makes the team win 50 percent of the time and he did a fantastic job even though he wasn’t getting runs. I owe this trophy to Madhya Pradesh. I would like to thank all the well-wishers, the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association and Madhavrao Scindia.”

Former India National Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli was furious at a few spectators after they pestered young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti for a photo during the four-day warm-up match between Indians and Leicestershire.

The warm-up match between Rohit Sharma-led Indians and Sam Evans-led Leicestershire began on June 23 at the Grace Road, Leicester.

Meanwhile, young pace bowler Nagarkoti is not part of India’s squad for the one-off Test against England and he is one of India’s net bowlers for the tour.

On Day 2 of the warm-up match between Indians and Leicestershire, few spectators gave Nagarkoti a hard time as they kept asking him for a picture continuously.

Kohli saw this and he was furious at the behaviour of the spectators and he came out on the balcony to defend Nagarkoti. When Kohli confronted the spectators, a fan told him that they just want a picture with the pacer, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, but the cricketer didn’t respond to multiple requests made to him.

“Kabse bula rha hoon, photo he nahi khicha raha. Mai meri job choddh ke yaha aaya hu. Kam se kam photo to khichwana chahie. Nagarkoti ko bula raha hoon (Translation: “I’ve been continuously asking for a photo. I came here after taking the day off from my office. So, I’ve been calling Nagarkoti to click a photo with me at least)” the fan can be heard as saying in Hindi after Kohli confronted him.

Former India captain Kohli responded to the fan by saying that the pacer is on the ground to play the match and not to click pictures.

“Match khelne aaya hai ya photo khichwane aaya hai (Translation: He is here to play the match, and not to click photos),” Kohli replied from the Pavillion.
