Competition history

Baroda has only emerged as a strong team in recent years. It won its last Ranji Trophy in 2000–01, but failed to defend the title, coming runner-up in the next year. This means it has had only one Irani Trophy appearance, in which it failed to defeat a strong Rest of India team which contained the likes of VVS Laxman (13 & 148), Dinesh Mongia (125 & 90*), Debashish Mohanty, Sarandeep Singh and Akash Chopra. See Scorecard. It was considered a strong team in the 1940s and 1950s, winning 4 times and coming runner-up twice. Vijay Hazare , Irfan Pathan , Yusuf Pathan , Hardik Pandya are amongst the most prominent cricketers to emerge from Baroda. They have performed exceedingly well at the international level for India.
