In the year 2010-2011, Gujarat made a wonderful start to the Ranji Season. They went for a draw against Bengal and later on made an outright win against a strong Delhi Team but lost two consecutive matches against Madhay Pradesh and Baroda, which ended their hope of entering Quarter Final Stage. They drew a high scoring match against Tamil Nadu, which featured the comeback of Parthiv patel (as we was busy in national duty) but lost the match against Haryana which forced them to go back at the Plate League.
