Ranji Trophy 2019-20: Snake-Catcher Catches Two Snakes In Mumbai-Karnataka Match

Once again the domestic cricket event had a very eventful day at the cricket field during Round 04 of the Ranji Trophy 2019/20. What could be referred to as one of the one-sided games, Mumbai and Karnataka locked horns with each other in the Round 04 of the Elite Group B. However, the snake-catcher had his hands full in the match, if not Mumbai, as he caught two snakes during the damp squib game.

On the other hand, the 41-time winners were face-to-face with this year’s ruthless team Karnataka who had emerged as the winning side in the domestic games. Karnataka had previously won the Vijay-Hazare and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy of this season.

Mumbai, who have been in the not-so-winning-streak form, fell for the ruthless pace attacks thrown at them by the Karnataka bowlers. From the very beginning of the game, the winning side was dominant in the game. However, the game had been a damp squib if not for the snakes that popped out of the ground and kept the on-lookers rooted to their seats.

Snake-catcher had an eventful day, caught two snakes during the game:

While the Mumbai cricket team were having a tough time facing the relentless pace attacks of Karnataka, the snake-catcher had a very eventful day. He caught two snakes on the final day of the game. The picture of the incident was uploaded by a sports journalist from The Hindu Amol Karhadkar, who shared the photo on his Twitter handle with a hilarious caption.

He wrote:

“The highlight of the day at BKC: The snake-catcher displays his “second catch of the day”. It’s a non-venomous rat snake, btw”

However, this is certainly not the first time that such an “eye-catching” incident occurred during the cricket match. Earlier during the start of the Ranji Trophy for the 2019-20 season, such a bizarre incident was recorded that paused a match for few minutes.

A snake entered the ground in Vijaywada on 9th Dec during the first Ranji Trophy match between Vidarbha and Andhra. There was a full 13-second video uploaded by the BCCI domestic on Twitter with a caption, “SNAKE STOPS PLAY! There was a visitor on the field to delay the start of the match.”

Mumbai loses yet another game against Karnataka, the domestic champions of the Year

Nevertheless, the 41-time Ranji Trophy champions suffered another blast as they were taken down by the Karnataka pace-bowling attack. Their top-order fell out of order as they suffered their second consecutive defeat in the season.

Karnataka’s pace-bowling unit – Prateek Jain (4/11), Abhimanyu Mithun (3/62) and V Koushik (2/23) condemned the home side to 149 all-out in their second innings.

However, Mumbai’s Shashank Attarde’s four-wicket-haul ensured not to make the target chase to be a jack’s play for Karnataka. The visitors lost five wickets early before they finally chased down the target with Devdutt Padikkal, who scored a half-century, and Ravikumar Samarth’s 34 runs in the early overs.
