Maharashtra 119 (Waghmare 29, Vihari 3-28, Bhandari 3-25) beat Hyderabad 100 (Fallah 4-12, Bhikane 3-19) by 19 runs
Scorecard

Hyderabad would have fancied their chances after packing off the opposition for a paltry score but the pace duo of Samad Fallah and Kishor Bhikane had other plans as Maharashtra clinched the crown in a low-scoring affair at the Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket Ground in Indore.

The Hyderabad bowlers, in particular the spinners, justified their captain Amol Shinde's decision to field first as the Maharashtra batsmen floundered from the onset. The highest score of 29 came from their semi-final saviour Digambar Waghmare, who came in at No. 8, while the highest partnerships were 24 for the third and eighth wickets. Offspinner Hanuma Vihari and legspinner Akash Bhandari profited the most with three wickets each while Shinde bagged two.

Hyderabad suffered an early setback when opener Danny Prince fell for a four-ball duck, bowled by Fallah. But a similar story would pan out from thereon as Fallah's early strikes completely derailed the chase. Anoop Pai managed a brave 36-ball 23, but with the fall of regular wickets, the target got steeper. If Fallah stole the show early on, Bhikane helped himself to two late order wickets, to make it three in total, as Hyderabad succumbed off the last ball of the innings.
