What'll you do with prize money? Pandit to VCA before Ranji

Indore: Spurring a bunch of underdogs to India's biggest prize in domestic cricket is no small task but so confident was Vidarbha coach Chandrakant Pandit that he had made inquiries about rewards for the improbable feat at the very start of the Ranji season.

After winning their maiden Ranji Trophy following five decades of trying, Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) vice- president Prashant Vaidya recalled the time when Pandit, after being signed up last season, asked what they would do with the prize money.

Surprised, the VCA official had asked Pandit what prize money was he referring to? "The one for the Ranji Trophy winners", replied the multiple-time winning coach.

"That was so confident of him, that this man was already thinking of winning the trophy, so I thought Vidarbha is definitely going to have a good season. I started believing on the first day he (Pandit) came to Nagpur," Vaidya said after the nine-wicket win over Delhi in the title clash here.

Seated beside Vaidya was Pandit, who has an enviable record as coach in first-class cricket.
