ITANAGAR, 6 Mar: Arunachal Pradesh won a match in the Ranji Trophy cricket tournament for the first time on Sunday, ever since the Northeast was included in the tournament in 2018.
The first match of the Ranji Trophy was played between Arunachal and Bihar in Kolkata from 3 to 4 March. Arunachal won the match with first-timer Nabam Abo from Ompuli village in Papum Pare district being behind the victory.

There has been an enormous improvement among the players while comparing with the seniors and new players.”
He said that, “within these three years of journey for the Ranjhi Trophy, with rigorous hard work, the players have got to know about their weaknesses and what needs to be improved.”
