The Mumbai Ranji team will ask the state cricket union to discuss with the BCCI the "unfair" rules that abort their Vijay Hazare campaign despite the dominant quarter-final against Chhattisgarh.
Chhattisgarh was named winner in the quarter-finals based on more wins than Mumbai during the competition phase, because the match could not be completed due to rain in Bengaluru.
Chhattisgarh had won five of their eight games in group A, while Mumbai had won four.
A member of Mumbai's support staff expressed his dissatisfaction with the current rules.
"Yes, of course, we will set a requirement. This was unfair," the member told PTI on condition of anonymity.
"How should the performance in the league match matter in the knockout phase. Every day is a new day. Otherwise a good team goes out like this," the member said, adding "otherwise this thing would go on."
After Mumbai bowlers limited Chhattisgarh to 190 for six in 45.4 overs, a revised goal was set from 195 out of 35 overs.
Mumbai threw all weapons at 95 for no loss in 11.3 overs with young Yashasvi Jaiswal who struck at 60 and Aditya Tare at 31. However, the sky opened and the game was stopped, ending Mumbai & # 39; s awkward campaign.
According to the rules, Mumbai had to skip at least 20 to get a result in this game. But when the game was stopped and Chhattisgarh qualified.
"We will discuss the problem. We will first see if we qualify with our score with the Duckworth Lewis method (from where the game was canceled). If we qualified, we would write to the board," said one senior MCA officer.
However, he also said that both teams knew the rules before they went to the tournament.
