The fifth and final day of the Ranji Trophy 2019-20 final culminated with Saurashtra lifting the coveted trophy after 73 years. The Jaydev Unadkat-led side clinched the trophy on the basis of first inning’s lead against Bengal. Following their historic win, the Twitterverse was in awe of Jaydev Unadkat and Co. as congratulatory wishes poured in for the whole team. Wasim Jaffer, Irfan Pathan and Pragyan Ojha also congratulated Saurashtra for clinching the trophy.

Meanwhile, the spread of Coronavirus has rocked all sporting events across the globe. Many bilateral series including much-awaited IPL 2020 has also been postponed. The start of the 13th edition of IPL has been delayed from 29 March to 15 April as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. The BCCI said the move was a ‘precautionary measure’ to regulate the widespread of Coronavirus.

The ongoing ODI series between India and South Africa has also been rescheduled and the Australia-New Zealand ODI series is also under the threat of postponement or cancellation. The Test series between Sri Lanka and England has also been cancelled and English players have also opted out of the ongoing PSL 2020.

Meanwhile, New Zealand were unable to hunt down a 259-run target as they succumbed to the bowling of Starc and Marsh. Both, Mitchell Marsh and Mitchell Starc scalped three wickets each to curb New Zealand’s run-flow as the hosts claimed their second ODI win of the year.
