  Saurashtra 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SH Kotak c Jaffer b Dabholkar 14 128 66 2 0 21.21
26.2 Kotak plays an uncharacteristically loose shot. And this is a big wicket. Short of a length, outside off, goes with the arm, Kotak pushes at it, playing for the turn, and edges it to slip 36/3
View dismissal SD Jogiyani c Jaffer b Kulkarni 1 7 7 0 0 14.28
1.3 this was a-comin'. Jogiyani has hardly looked at ease. Stuck in the crease, he has been feeling for balls. Stays back, no foot movement, pushes at one short-of-a-length ball outside off. The feet are stuck in front of leg, and all he manages is a healthy edge to second slip. The ball did nothing 2/1
View dismissal RR Dave c Chavan b Kulkarni 3 37 25 0 0 12.00
9.3 bouncer. Given. Dave is slow to react. Watching replays, he has been extremely slow. Stunned by the bouncer, at his head, he just brings up the bat up almost in slow motion, and edges a lob to gully where Ankeet Chavan nearly makes a meal of it, but catches it at the second grab 12/2
View dismissal AV Vasavada c Shah b Nayar 55 212 146 9 0 37.67
55.4 that man Nayar again. Produces the breakthrough out of nowhere. He has this habit of producing something special when Mumbai are looking for it. Short of a length, middle and leg, kicks away from there, takes the shoulder of the bat, and the slips have been on the ball today. Nonetheless, a good hand from Vasavada 114/6
View dismissal SP Jackson c †Tare b Kulkarni 5 11 11 1 0 45.45
29.2 and Kulkarni gets the wicket. The big one of Jackson's. Not great technique this outside Rajkot. No foot movement, and he pushes at a short-of-a-length ball outside off. Kulkarni gets it to hold its line, and takes the edge through 45/4
View dismissal JN Shah* c Shah b Dabholkar 0 5 6 0 0 0.00
30.5 Shah doesn't survive too long. Playing outside Rajkot after a while, Saurashtra are collapsing here. Full, middle and leg, chipped away to short midwicket. It's the pressure of the seam bowling from the other end 50/5
View dismissal KR Makvana c Pawar b Nayar 26 120 83 4 0 31.32
57.6 Nayar has another. This man's dream Ranji season continues. Both set batsmen gone now. This is slightly soft, though. Short of a length, iwde, and he has cut it straight down gully's throat where Kaustubh Pawar takes a sharp catch. Mumbai have been poor at catching all season, but what a time to finally turn it on 115/7
View dismissal SM Sanandiya b Agarkar 4 59 45 0 0 8.88
70.6 superb delivery. Too good for a tailender. Sanandiya has been teasing them missing balls outside off, but Agarkar takes the edge out of the equation now. Goes wide of the crease, lands it on middle and off, swings it past the outside edge, and hits the off stump 141/8
View dismissal JD Unadkat run out (Dabholkar) 22 60 49 3 0 44.89
72.4 from Agarkar, another display of poor running from Unadkat. He has a bat in hand, but he doesn't want to use it to slide into the crease. First of all he is jogging for the single to point, and then he holds the bat high in the air as if it is a trophy to be shown off. He would have easily beaten Dabholkar's throw had he slid the bat in. What's worse? He made a similar mistake earlier, but hasn't learned 142/9
DA Jadeja not out 4 24 8 1 0 50.00
View dismissal SK Trivedi c †Tare b Kulkarni 2 15 9 0 0 22.22
75.3 finally he gets the edge. And that with a straight ball. It's good idea if you are beating them consistently with outswingers. This one goes with the angle, Trivedi is backing away, and gets the outside edge. Kulkarni ends up with four wickets. Mumbai already have one hand on the Ranji Trophy 148/10

  Mumbai 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal W Jaffer lbw b Jadeja 132 352 246 16 1 53.65
73.6 oh he is being sawn off now. The umpiring has been poor this game. Just when Jaffer - who has had his luck with umpires earlier in the innings - was putting on a show he has been given lbw by Hariharan to ball that would have missed two other stumps. Flat ball, doesn't turn, goes with the angle, misses the inside edge, hits him in front of leg, and has some way to go. Out yes, but if we had another set of stumps 233/5
View dismissal KR Pawar c & b Trivedi 21 166 90 5 0 23.33
33.3 caught and bowled. This is not the first leading edge Pawar has got. Looks to work this length ball to leg, too early to close the face, the ball lobs back to Trivedi off the leading edge 75/1
View dismissal AP Tare c Vasavada b Sanandiya 3 32 25 0 0 12.00
40.1 edged and taken, and the crowd cheers because Tendulkar is slated to come in next. Tare has hardly looked comfortable in the middle. Short of a length, outside off, holds its line, Tare goes hard at it, edges it, and Vasavada at second slip takes this in front of first 89/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar run out (Makvana) 22 78 43 3 0 51.16
54.6 from Jadeja, Jaffer has sent Tendulkar back, and he is gone. Tendulkar pushes this to the right of point, Tendulkar wants the one, Jaffer doesn't, and Tendulkar has no chance of getting back as Makvana throws to the right end. Had he dived he might have made it perhaps, but he had gone too far down. Before leaving he has a word with Jaffer, possibly telling him to forget about this and carry on batting as he has been. The crowd gives him a standing ovation as he walks off 157/2
View dismissal AM Nayar c Unadkat b Makvana 26 51 36 2 1 72.22
66.4 Nayar's intent has got him. He dances down the wicket, not quite close to the pitch of the ball, and ends up dragging this straight down short midwicket's lap. He will need a second innings if he is to end as the highest run-getter this season 209/4
View dismissal HN Shah c †Jogiyani b Sanandiya 55 191 141 7 0 39.00
111.4 finally a breakthrough for Saurashtra, and it's the specialist batsman gone. Good delivery, holds its line against the angle, just outside off, Shah plays for the angle, gets an outside edge, and Jogiyani makes no mistake 329/8
View dismissal AB Agarkar* lbw b Jadeja 2 6 7 0 0 28.57
75.6 another wicket for Jadeja. Can't be extremely sure about this one either. Again this one doesn't turn at all, pitches middle, and hits Agarkar in front of middle and leg. There is a woody sound too, but that comes from the bat hitting the pad, but you can't be sure this was going to hit leg, because the ball has not straightened at all. A little harsh on Agarkar 237/6
View dismissal DS Kulkarni c Kotak b Trivedi 18 90 60 1 1 30.00
97.5 edged and taken, but we need to confirm if the catch is clean because Kulkarni is not going anywhere. Pushes at a length ball outside off, gets a regulation edge, the ball is dying on first slip, but Kotak does well to stay low and get his fingers under the ball. Kulkarni will have to go 288/7
View dismissal AA Chavan c & b Makvana 41 107 56 6 0 73.21
118.6 lovely catch by Makvana, using every inch of his tall frame to take the return catch. Chavan is down the wicket, looks to work to leg, gets a leading edge, and Makvana runs a couple of steps and then dives full length to take it 355/10
View dismissal SN Thakur c & b Makvana 10 25 22 1 0 45.45
116.6 return catch for Makvana. Driven back at him, but not quite to the pitch of the ball and fails to keep it down. Makvana accepts it gleefully 344/9

View dismissal SH Kotak c †Tare b Agarkar 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 what an end for Kotak in what could be his last match. This could well have been a leg-side wide had Kotak not followed it and edged it through to a diving Tare 0/1
View dismissal SD Jogiyani c †Tare b Agarkar 0 21 11 0 0 0.00
4.5 Agarkar has two. It is clear Jogiyani can do the job of being a makeshift opener in Rajkot, but not outside. He backs away from the line of the ball and pushes at it too often to be an opener. Does the same to this, and edges through to the keeper. A repeat of first-innings dismissal 5/2
View dismissal RR Dave c Chavan b Kulkarni 5 24 20 1 0 25.00
5.5 Saurashtra are falling apart here. Mumbai bossing them as they are used to. Short of a length, at the stumps, he has to play at it, and then he gets extra bounce and away movement, takes the shoulder of the bat and through to gully 5/3
View dismissal AV Vasavada lbw b Agarkar 0 20 12 0 0 0.00
8.6 another wicket for Agarkar. Vasavada can consider himself unlucky. Hariharan has had a shocker of a final, and it continues. Length ball, outside off, Vasavada doesn't offer a shot, but the ball has only held its line, and is a long way from hitting the stumps. Vasavada penalised here for padding up, but that ball was never going to hit the stumps 11/4
View dismissal JN Shah* b Kulkarni 6 16 9 0 0 66.66
9.1 Saurashtra are in tatters. Hyderabad's record for the lowest team total is in danger. Beaten by the pace here. Straight delivery, pitches off, holds its line, and the bat is late to come down. Bowled 11/5
View dismissal SP Jackson b Kulkarni 9 21 13 2 0 69.23
13.3 another one bites the dust. Superb delivery. Got Saurashtra's best batsman out. Length ball, on middle and off, holds its line, goes past the outside edge, and into the stumps. Jackson could have played forward and countered that movement, but that's not the kind of day Saurashtra are having. And he is gone on 9, so yet to see someone get into double figures 20/6
View dismissal KR Makvana c Shah b Nayar 7 52 37 1 0 18.91
19.6 you can't keep Nayar out of the action. Mumbai three wickets from No. 40. Full outswinger, finally gets the edge from Makvana, and Hiken Shah takes a sharp low catch at first slip. Still nobody in double figures 34/7

36.3 All over. Kulkarni completes a five-for to win their 40th title. Wide delivery, he follows it, edges it to Tare, who equals the record for most dismissals for a wicketkeeper in a season, 41. Both have come this season. Kaul and him 82/10
