Safi Darashah kicks off today

Safi Darashah kicks off today


After having experimented with two-day fixtures last year, the season opener reverts to its old format of three-day duration.

Another added feature would be that just one set of matches would be played a week.  
All-rounder C Raghu will lead President’s XI while Deepak Chougule has been named the Combined XI skipper. Wicketkeeper-batsmen CM Gautam and Devraj Patil will be in charge of Bangalore Zone and Devraj Patil City XI respectively.
