Suggestion to Establish a Relegation System in Indian Domestic Cricket:
Arunachal Pradesh on the other hand got wrapped up for a meager 71 runs. Hence Tamil Nadu registered a 435-run victory. The plate group formation needs to be considered strongly for weaker teams such as the teams from the North East and smaller teams like Pondicherry. A relegation system to relegate the weaker teams to a lower pool needs to be formed. Else these domestic records will lose all sorts of creditability. This suggestion comes from a true cricket fan and even many analysts such as Aakash Chopra and VVS Laxman have been vocal about it.
