Ranji Trophy: Struggling Odisha Make Changes For Next 2 Games; Check Squad
Cuttack: After two disappointing performances, Odisha’s senior selection committee has made some changes in the squad for the next two Ranji Trophy matches, both at home.
Anshuman Rath and Govind Poddar have been named in the squad which will face Haryana from December 27 and Nagaland from January 3, 2023.
