Railways Cricket Team (also known as the Indian Railways) is a domestic cricket team in India. The team's home ground is East Coast Railway Stadium in Bhubaneswar and Karnail Singh Stadium in New Delhi.[1] The team is run by the Railways Sports Promotion Board which fields the Railways cricket team in domestic cricket competitions in India such as the Ranji Trophy.[2]

Competition History

For most of its history, the Indian Railways has met little success in the Ranji Trophy. However, in recent years since 2000, Railways have won the trophy twice and become runners-up. As Champions of the Ranji Trophy, they have played the Irani Trophy twice, emerging victorious on both occasions.
