Ranji Trophy - Final

Mumbai v Saurashtra

Mumbai won by an innings and 125 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

1.3

Kulkarni to Jogiyani, OUT, 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

SD Jogiyani c Jaffer b Kulkarni 1 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Saurashtra 2/1   SH Kotak 1* (2b)   DS Kulkarni 0.3-0-0-1

9.3

Kulkarni to Dave, OUT, 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

RR Dave c Chavan b Kulkarni 3 (37m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.00

Saurashtra 12/2   SH Kotak 8* (25b 1x4)   DS Kulkarni 4.3-2-2-2

26.2

Dabholkar to Kotak, OUT, 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

SH Kotak c Jaffer b Dabholkar 14 (128m 66b 2x4 0x6) SR: 21.21

Saurashtra 36/3   AV Vasavada 17* (60b 3x4)   VV Dabholkar 2.2-0-2-1

29.2

Kulkarni to Jackson, OUT, 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

SP Jackson c †Tare b Kulkarni 5 (11m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Saurashtra 45/4   AV Vasavada 17* (67b 3x4)   DS Kulkarni 9.2-5-10-3

30.5

Dabholkar to Shah, OUT, 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

JN Shah c Shah b Dabholkar 0 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Saurashtra 50/5   AV Vasavada 22* (70b 4x4)   VV Dabholkar 4.5-1-8-2

55.4

Nayar to Vasavada, OUT, 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

AV Vasavada c Shah b Nayar 55 (212m 146b 9x4 0x6) SR: 37.67

Saurashtra 114/6   KR Makvana 25* (75b 4x4)   AM Nayar 6.4-1-22-1

57.6

Nayar to Makvana, OUT, 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

KR Makvana c Pawar b Nayar 26 (120m 83b 4x4 0x6) SR: 31.32

Saurashtra 115/7   SM Sanandiya 0* (6b)   AM Nayar 8-2-22-2

70.6

Agarkar to Sanandiya, OUT, 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

SM Sanandiya b Agarkar 4 (59m 45b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.88

Saurashtra 141/8   JD Unadkat 22* (39b 3x4)   AB Agarkar 14-5-29-1

72.4

Agarkar to Unadkat, OUT, 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

JD Unadkat run out 22 (60m 49b 3x4 0x6) SR: 44.89

Saurashtra 142/9   DA Jadeja 0* (0b)   AB Agarkar 14.4-5-29-1

75.3

Kulkarni to Trivedi, OUT, 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

SK Trivedi c †Tare b Kulkarni 2 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Saurashtra 148/10   DA Jadeja 4* (8b 1x4)   DS Kulkarni 21.3-13-24-4
