Manoj Tiwari said: Winning Ranji Trophy is still my biggest dream, West Bengal Sports and Youth Welfare Minister Manoj Tiwari has visited his constituency in Shibpur near Howrah four days a week for the past year.
He will not be able to visit his constituency
He was briefly unable to do so due to the league stage of the Ranji Trophy in February-March and will no longer be able to visit his constituency again for three weeks to play the quarter-finals.
West Bengal has made it to the knockouts for the second consecutive season. In March 2020, he came to win the Ranji title for the first time since the 1989-90 season.
Winning Ranji Trophy for the first time by defeating Delhi:-
32 years ago, Bengal won the Ranji Trophy for the first time by defeating the star-studded Delhi. That season of 1990 is remembered for Sourav Ganguly’s grand entry into the final.
When he was given the chance in place of his elder brother Snehasish Ganguly and current Bengal coach Arun Lal.
Two years after losing the final in Rajkot, Bengal is looking to capture the trophy this time. It is the urge to hold this glittering silver trophy in his hand, which Manoj Tiwary is playing despite a backache, knee pain, and broken cartilage.

There is a small picture of Ranji Champions of Bengal:-
In a small corner outside this iconic venue is a small picture of the Ranji Champions of Bengal. He wants to put a photo of the current team there.
Manoj Tiwary told Cricinfo, Winning Ranji Trophy is still my biggest dream. It is this goal that has always inspired me to pursue my career in cricket.
I had dreamed that while leading the Bengal team, I would make the team win Ranji, however, that was not possible.
After that, I just wanted to be a part of the Ranji Trophy-winning team. In 2020, we were very close to winning the trophy. However, even there the work remained unfinished.
