The 2015-16 season of India’s premier domestic competition, the Ranji Trophy, produced some magnificent cricket. Many top players, including the ones who play for the national side, displayed their skills during the long season. Mumbai was crowned the champion for the 41st time after defeating Saurashtra in the final in Pune. Here’s a list to top 5 players who did consistently well for their respective teams throughout the tourney.
1. Shreyas Iyer (Mumbai):
Relying on instinct and a game without half-measures, Shreyas Iyer capped off a prolific season with a brilliant hundred in the summit clash. Walking in at 0 for 1 on a green top in Pune he brought up a 114-ball 100 is a manner that should please the national selectors to no end. He made 1321 runs at an average of 73.80 and an astonishing a strike rate of 92.70. His dismissal in the final left him just 95 runs short of VVS Laxman’s record for most runs in a Ranji Trophy season.
