Chandrakant Pandit: High priest of Ranji coaching

“There should be some fear in the player, otherwise he will not do what he is supposed to do. And he knows that if he does not act according to the plan, he will have to face Sir’s wrath,” veteran Madhya Pradesh fast bowler Ishwar Pandey says. Planning and discipline – that, essentially, is coach Chandrakant Pandit’s philosophy. The former India wicketkeeper-batsman has guided another side not used to making summit clashes – Madhya Pradesh in this case – to their first Ranji Trophy final in 23 years. Having won back-to-back titles with then-unknowns Vidarbha three years ago, Pandit is now up against his ‘home’ team Mumbai, whom he coached to their last title in 2015-16. Pandit is famed for his hard-taskmaster style, and painstakingly-prepared plans that brook little interference from ei...
