A second-innings collapse from Maharashtra saw Mumbai pull off a seven-wicket victory in their Ranji Trophy league match at Mumbai on Sunday.

Reaching a first-innings total of 250 thanks mainly to some late-order heroics, Mumbai must have felt that they did not have nearly enough runs in the bank. Iqbal Siddiqui was the most impressive Maharashtra bowler, returning figures of 7-91.

Ramesh Powar, however, returned his own impressive figures for Mumbai, taking 6-30 off 19.5 overs. The Maharashtra innings collapsed dramatically; with only the openers getting to double figures, the side was dismissed for 98.

Set a target of 65 for victory, Mumbai brushed off minor hiccups to notch up a seven-wicket victory. They now garner eight points from this match, their first of the Ranji season.
