    13.5 similar dismissal to Jaffer's!! full on middle and off and angling in, nips back in after pitching, Samant, who was struggling all along, tries to defend it on the leg side, misses, and the ball strikes him in line with middle and off. The umpire is convinced and UP are ecstatic. Bhuvneshwar's double strike has dented Mumbai here 42/2
    5.2 gone! does him in with an inswinger. Pitched on a good length outside off and nipped back in sharply, Jaffer, who was half-forward, attempts to drive it back past the bowler, misses, is struck on the pads in line with middle, and the umpire raises his finger immediately. The previous umpiring error didn't cost much 16/1
    18.3 Perhaps a touch unlucky there! That pitched full outside leg stump and swung in towards middle and off, tries to flick it away towards square leg, misses and is struck in line. RP goes up and the appeal is upheld; a poor decision by the umpire Tarapore who failed to spot that the ball pitched well outside leg stump 55/3
    19.2 Tendulkar goes and Mumbai are in trouble here!! That cut in sharply from outside off as Tendulkar came forward to defend, he gets an inside edge onto the pads and the ball lobs up towards Shukla at short-midwicket who takes a good catch diving forward 55/4
    106.3 gone!! Praveen Gupta does the trick! Tossed up outside the off stump, Rohit is tempted to come down the track and loft it over mid-off, the ball spins away as he tries to get under it and he gets a thickish outside edge that lobs straight to Parvinder Singh at point 344/7
    81.1 gone for 99!! Bhuvneshwar does the trick! that was bowled on a good length on middle and leg with a hint of movement towards leg stump, Nayar tried to work that one away towards square leg to get the single to reach his century, he missed, and the ball seemed as through it was hitting leg when it struck his pads. Umpire Sahiba had no hesitation in raising his finger and replays indicate he made the right decision 262/5
    81.2 Or maybe not!! Gone first ball!! Full outside off, the new batsman Sairaj Bahutule drives at it only to get an outside edge that's pouched safely behind the wickets by Amir Khan. Bhuvneshwar takes five and UP are back in this! 262/6
    113.2 gone!! RP strikes finally!! Slower ball bowled full outside off, Agarkar tries to loft it back over RP but fails to get the elevation or the timing, RP jumps in his follow through and snaps it out of thin air with his left hand. Good catch and Agarkar departs for a well made 47 358/9
    107 gone!! flighted on middle and leg, Powar, like Rohit, comes down the track and tries to loft the ball over the long-on boundary, fails to get the elevation and finds Piyush Chawla at mid-on who takes a neat catch 344/8
    131 gone! Good length on the off stump and Zaheer tries to waft that to over mid-on, gets a top-edge that lobs up straight to Parvinder at point who makes no mistake this time. 402/10

    2.4 gone! bouncer banged in short on the off stump, Srivastava thinks of pulling it but decides against it at the last moment, the ball tickles the bottom off the bat just as he withdraws and the the keeper makes no mistake. The faintest of edges and the umpire spots it this time. UP are one down 6/1

    92.4 gone! Given on 99! Was he out though? That nipped back in sharply from a good length on the off stump and struck Shukla high on the pads as he tried to defend it off the front foot. The fielders went up immediately and the umpire Tarapore had no hesitation there. Shukla perhaps a touch unlucky there as replays indicated the ball may have gone over the stumps as it struck the pad flap. A marginal decision, but the umpire was convinced 214/5
    2.5 run out, driven just wide of cover where Bahutule picks up the ball cleanly and throws down the stumps at the non strikers end in one motion. Raina dives full length but his bat is in the air as the the ball strikes the stumps. The appeal is referred and upheld. Raina out first ball and UP are in some trouble here 6/2
    43.2 gone!! Mumbai have struck at the stroke of stumps and replays indicate that Kaif was unlucky there. Pitched on a good length on the off stump and swung away sharply, there was certainly a noise as Kaif came forward to defend, but it was the bat flicking the pad while there was a daylight between bat and ball. The fielders go up and the umpire raises his finger immediately. 91/3
    73.1 gone!! Parvinder's resistance ends! A careless shot by the batsman, short outside off and swinging away, a touch too wide to cut but Parvinder chases it from the crease, gets a thick outside edge and it's pouched comfortably by Samant behind the wickets. Big blow. 146/4
    93.1 stupid shot from Bhuvneshwar and UP are sliding here, short and wide, cuts at it from the crease, gets a thick outside edge and the substitute fielder Kukreja takes it on the second attempt at first slip. 218/6
    100.1 gone! Full on middle and leg, Chawla gets forward to drive it past mid-on, gets an inside edge onto his pads and the ball lobs up towards Dhawal Kulkarni at mid-on who takes a good catch diving forward 245/9
    98.1 edged and gone! Zaheer takes his fourth. Good length on the off stump and a hint of away movement, tries to roll his wrists over it to work it away wide of mid-on, gets a thin nick and Samant makes no mistake. Praveen goes and UP are in deep trouble here. 239/7
    98.2 He has to go too and Zaheer takes five! Much fuller outside the off stump and continues to get the away movement, Amir Khan pushes at it lethargically from the crease, gets a thick outside edge and Samant dives well to his right to complete the catch. 239/8

    75.2 gone! Good length outside off and moving away just a touch, Samant prods at it from the crease and gets a faint nick to the keeper standing up. Mumbai are four down now and Samant departs after a well made 113 228/4
    43 gone! Done in by the inswinger. Good length on the off stump and swings in sharply, Jaffer is half-forward while trying to defend, misses, and is struck in line with leg stump. The umpire Saheba has no doubt. 146/1
    51.5 gone! Praveen gets him finally, full outside off, mistimes a drive straight to the substitute fielder Ravikant Shukla at cover who takes a sharp catch 167/2
    64.2 gone! Chawla gets the breakthrough! Tossed up on the off stump from round the wicket, spins into Nayar and strikes him on the back pad as he tries to sweep. He was hit in line with middle and off and umpire Sahiba raised his finger immediately. Mumbai are three down and 349 ahead 192/3
    109.2 tries to go for a slog-sweep over midwicket, that pitched well outside off and he chased it, got the top-edge and a substitute fielder Ravikant Shukla judges it well at point. End of a good innings, a better one quality-wise from his performance in the first 347/8
    77 Powar has a pair! Lands on a good length on middle and off, pushed back uppishly off the front foot and Chawla dives well to his left to pluck it inches off the ground. Five down with a lead of 386 now. 229/5
    82.5 Tendulkar departs! Tossed up, lands full on middle and leg, he makes a bit of room, gets under that length ball but fails to get the elevation over mid-on, strikes it straight to the substitute fielder there 241/6
    97.5 short and wide, gets on the back foot, it's there to cut but it bounces more than he expected, ends up playing it straight to Parvinder Singh at point 296/7

    109.3 good length on the off stump and jagged back in, Zaheer missed it completely while playing forward, clips the pads on the way to the middle stump. Mumbai are nine down now and Parvinder is on a hat trick 347/9
    127 it's all over, finally! Dhawal just chips this one to mid-on and Parvinder holds on to an easy chance. Dhawal looked disappointed there; too bad, he ran out of patience 367/10

    5.1 gone! What now? Full outside off, there to drive, Shukla comes forward and opens the face slightly to slice it straight to gully where Rohit takes a neat catch 20/1
    6.1 gone! Bowled all ends up!! Lands full on middle and swings in towards leg, Srivastava tries to drive it wide of mid-on, misses, the ball clips the pads on its way to uprooting the off stump 21/2
    13.3 short outside off stump, Raina tries to cut that off the back foot, gets a thick outside edge and Tendulkar cups it easily at first slip 53/3
    46.1 gone, finally! Powar tosses that one up and it lands full on middle and off, Kaif is down the track and lofts it straight to Amol Muzumdar, the substitute fielder, at long-on. Failed to time it well there and got too much elevation on it 170/5
    14.4 300th wicketkeeping dismissal for Vinayak Samant, good length outside off and swinging away, tries to defend it off the back foot, gets a thick outside edge that's snapped up well by Samant moving to his right 58/4
    59.4 short of a good length outside off stump, tries to punch it off the back foot to cover, gets a thin edge straight to Samant who gets the nod from the umpire this time. UP are sliding now, with their top-scorer heading back to the pavilion. Replays indicate there may have been a gap between bat and ball, although there was certainly a deviation. Too close to call there but Bhuvneshwar did look disappointed at the decision. 217/8
    52.1 caught at slip! Tossed up on leg stump and spins away sharply, Chawla tries to open the face to guide that towards point, gets a thick outside edge and Jaffer takes a good low catch to his left 193/6
    52.4 short and wide and Praveen just cuts that straight to point. Nayar makes no mistake 193/7

    71.5 Mumbai win the Ranji Trophy for the 38th time, landing full outside off and he drives at it lazily to get an outside edge straight to first slip where Kukreja holds on this time. Dhawal has taken five and is now on par with Ravindra Jadeja to become the highest wicket-taker this Ranji season 281/10
