Competition history

Haryana has never been considered a very strong team in the Ranji Trophy circuit and has only featured in a Ranji Trophy final twice. The first time, in 1986 against Delhi, resulted in a heavy defeat. Electing to bat first, the Haryana team (captained by Kapil Dev were all out for 288. They then allowed Delhi to score a mammoth 638, with most bowlers being ineffective. They then went on to be all out for 209 after Maninder Singh bagged 8 wickets. [1]

Its next final was in 1991 against Mumbai, which was a thriller, with Haryana winning by just 2 runs. This allowed for them to make their one and only appearance in the Irani Trophy, facing a Rest of India side that contained the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Javagal Srinath, Maninder Singh and Vinod Kambli. Haryana won by 4 wickets after being set a last innings target of 204. [2]
