Ranji Trophy: Horrible fielding costs J&K yet another match Many of you might have been wondering that despite posting a good total, why did J&K lose the match against Odhisa so easily!

Well, the main reason was not the bowling but the poor fielding and devasting umpiring as well. J&K fielders missed many chances when required the most and finally finished on the loosing side. Apart from fielding, few surprising decisions by umpires made the impact It really is a concerning thing. They had reached so close to a draw after unimpressive first innings but all the hardwork ended up going in vain. Skipper, Parvez Rasool who fought extremely hard, scoring a brilliant 158-run knock was left disappointed so as the whole team management. It was almost fourth match that J&K lost after going so close to save or win the match. Moreover, I think it also is the time to take a toll over underperformers. Khajuria, Ian Singh and many others are failing consistently. It surely is the time to insert talented youngsters as we have already lost the race of qualifying for next round.
