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
    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
    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
    9 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
    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
    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
    20 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
    25.4 caught at gully. Mumbai need two more. No. 4 for Kulkarni. Full and wide, Sanandiya pushes at it away from the body, gets a thick edge, and Dabholkar takes a sharp catch at gully 53/8
    35.3 Agarkar gets four. Dismissal No. 40 this season for Tare. Mumbai one wicket short of title No. 40. Outswinger from wide of the crease, lands in front of off, shapes away enough to take the edge. Gleefully accepted by Tare 82/9
    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
