Cricket star Ranji rocked the Tailteann Games in Croker

Malahide Cricket Club will host the exciting annual multicultural Ranji Corporate Trophy tournament which is scheduled for Saturday August 1.

Once again India and Ireland come together to organise a fast'n'furious six-a-side competition of teams from global organisations and business houses.

Ireland vice-captain Kevin O'Brien, the man who stunned England in Bangalore with the fastest century in World Cup history, is brand ambassador again this year for an event named in honour of India's cricket superstar, Prince Ranjiitsinhji (Ranji) Maharajah, the first head of state to visit the newly established Irish Free State in 1924. He was guest of honour at the Tailteann Games in Croke Park. Ranji moved to Connemara where he lived in Ballynahinch Castle until 1933. The remarkable Ranji defied prejudice by playing and starring for England.
