Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) president Jagan Mohan Rao Arishnapally on Wednesday announced that a BMW car to each player and Rs 1 crore cash prize to the team will be given to the Hyderabad side if they win the Ranji Elite Trophy in next three years.
Currently, the Ranji Trophy works on a relegation system. 32 teams have been divided in four groups of eight each, collectively known as the ‘Elite category’ while six other teams are playing in the ‘Plate’ group. The bottom two teams of the each Elite-level group will get relegated to ‘Plate’ category for next season while the ‘Plate’ level finalists will get promoted to ‘Elite’ category next season.
Hyderabad is currently playing in the ‘Plate’ group, topping the table with five wins in five matches and 35 points so far. They recently won the ‘Plate’ level final against Meghalaya, which has earned them a spot in ‘Elite’ category for the season 2024-25.
