N. Srinivasan, the BCCI president, says several Tamil Nadu players have contributed to India's success and now it's time to make the state Ranji Trophy champion.

N. Srinivasan, under whose presidentship India became the number one team in the world, now wants similar success for his state Tamil Nadu.

Speaking at a function in Chennai on Tuesday, the BCCI president said several Tamil Nadu players have contributed to India's success and now it's time to make the state Ranji Trophy champion.

Srinivasan, who has got an extension for a third year as BCCI chief, has seen success from close quarters.

Chennai Super kings, a team that is owned by his company India cements, has won the Indian Premier League twice under Mahendra Singh Dhoni's leadership. The Tamil Nadu strongman, who was voted into power by his south zone allies, wants his state to dominate domestic cricket.

Tamil Nadu has lifted domestic cricket's most coveted title only once, in 1986-87, when they beat Railways in final. However, they have ended the season as runners-up six times - 1972-73, 1991-92, 1995-96, 2002-03, 2003-04 and 2011-12.

"It is our dream for us to win the Ranji Trophy every year," said Srinivasan. "This is the prize that every domestic team wants to win. Ranji Trophy is a stepping stone for all the players' careers," he added.
