In recent seasons Jammu and Kashmir has been more successful. In 2013–14, the team qualified for the knockout stage of the Ranji Trophy after a gap of more than 10 years. Placed in Group C, the state team, which last qualified for the knockout stage in 2001–02 season, notched up four outright wins in the league round to pip Goa by .001 points on net run rate for a berth in the quarterfinals. Later in 2015-16, the team led by Parvez Rasool defeated heavyweights Mumbai at Wankhade Stadium. However, in the following seasons, the team again lost the rhythm.
