Delhi collapsed unaccountably to give Mumbai a 310-run victory on the final day of their Ranji Trophy Super League group A match at the Feroz Shah Kotla grounds in New Delhi on Sunday. Mumbai picked up eight points in registering their second successive win in the group. They had earlier defeated reigning champions Karnataka.
Delhi, chasing an unlikely victory target of 501, were 41 for no loss when they resumed on Sunday morning. The opening pair Devinder Sharma (34) and A Chopra (23) put on 56 runs. But except for Ashu Dani who came in at No 8, none of the other batsmen offered much resistance as Abhey Kuruvila (3 for 43), Nilesh Kulkarni (3 for 37) and Sairaj Bahutule (3 for 18) ran through the Delhi line up. Wickets fell at regular intervals though Dani who hit 47 of 86 balls with six fours and a six, tried to delay the inevitable as Delhi were all out for 190, shortly after tea.
