73.3 to SS Patel, and out now..lovely delivery. It was on a good length and gets the away movement. Patel was caught at the crease, no feet movement at all, pushed at it and away from the body, the outside edge was held by the keeper. 184/7
Aditya Sarwate40129852.4518111000
2.3 to HM Desai, and there's the first wicket! He has been getting onto the backfoot often this innings and here too he goes onto the backfoot without quite judging the line or length. The ball pitched on the middle and was rushed through. He didn't get behind the line completely even though he was on the backfoot and bought himself some time. He was early into the stroke, whatever he had in mind, and ended up playing all over it. Beautiful bowling this. 18/1
25.5 to VM Jadeja, and he gets a second wicket . Fuller ball on the middle stump. It comes in with the angle and Jadeja was playing for the turn. He was struck right in front of the middle stump. Good bowling. 79/2
29.3 to CA Pujara, and there's the big fish! Good length ball outside the off stump. He moves back and doesn't play for the turn. He gets an outside edge to Jaffer at first slip. Vidarbha come roaring back into the game with the wicket on the stroke of tea.. 81/3
67.1 to PN Mankad, that came back in with the angle from round the wicket, kept low. Goes past the bat and clips the front pad. 173/6
83.3 to DA Jadeja, goes back and tries to steer it, sends a flat catch off the outside edge to first slip where Jaffer held it. 222/8
Akshay Karnewar2074802.40978000
Akshay Wakhare2018044.00789100
41.2 to AV Vasavada, turn and bounce. Everything that a batsman dreads from a spin bowler was there. It shot up from a spot on the good length area. He was playing with his wrists down and gets an outside edge to Jaffer at first slip. Superb bowling. 115/4
47.5 to SP Jackson, Half the side back in the hut. He is looking to turn it away and gets an inside edge back onto the thigh pad and the ball pops up to be held by the keeper. Vidarbha kicking the door in for dominating the final but they would know that they were also in the same situation when they were batting. 131/5
89.6 to KR Makvana, tossed up outside off, gets an outside edge to first slip, another catch for Jaffer. 247/9
116.6 to JD Unadkat, and Vidarbha manages to take the first innings lead....Unadkat gets down on one knee and sweeps it straight to the fielder at backward square leg. 307/10

Jaydev Unadkat1853011.66903000
41.6 to AV Wadkar, superb ball to follow up the jaffa from the last ball. Similar ball to the one that he bowled the previous ball. He altered the line by bowling it on middle and off. He gets it to straighten it a bit and Wadkar plays all over it. He is beaten and the off stump is pegged back. Unadkat is pumped up. 73/5
Chetan Sakariya1341911.46682000
81.3 to UT Yadav, good length ball coming in with the angle. Umesh Yadav looks to defend it and leaves a lot of gap between the bat and pad. The ball sneaks in and hits the middle stump. 178/9
Kamlesh Makwana2575122.041186000
55.2 to AK Karnewar, and there's the wicket they have been after! Lures him into the drive with a ball wide outside the off stump and flighted. Karnewar, who showed restraint in the first innings, thinks there's a boundary there and chases the ball. He pushes his hands without getting the foot forward to the pitch of the delivery and gets an outside edge to the first slip. 105/6
69.4 to MR Kale, and that's the seventh and most important one. He comes forward and looks to defend it. He is beaten by the drift and is struck in front of the leg stump. Replays show it would've been going down leg. 134/7
Dharmendrasinh Jadeja36.539662.601594300
14.4 to FY Fazal, gets down on one knee and tries to sweep, missed it completely. It was pitched around middle stump and moving in with the angle, clips the leg stump. 16/1
24.4 to RR Sanjay, tossed up delivery outside off, from round the wicket. Sanjay steps out and tries to defend, and fails to connect. That turns away sharply beating the bat and the keeper was quick to remove the bails. 45/2
38.5 to W Jaffer, and there's the wicket that they were looking for! After being patient with deliveries outside the off stump. Jaffer decides to go after one. He doesn't want to play it for runs though. He wants to punch it to the packed off side field. The ball doesn't bounce as much as Jaffer was expecting it to. There is an outside edge and the keeper (substitute) takes it. Good catch. 71/3
40.1 to Ganesh Satish, two wickets in three balls for Dharmendrasinh Jadeja! Fuller ball on the off stump and comes in with the angle. Ganesh looks to defend it and is beaten. There is a huge appeal and the umpire raises his finger. Ganesh looks disappointed with the decision. Was there an inside edge or did he think that it was going down leg? Well, it doesn't matter because the replays show that he did get an inside edge but that carried to the fielder. He has been given lbw though. The catch was taken at silly point. 72/4
76.6 to AA Wakhare, and that's the fifth wicket for Jadeja. Fuller ball on middle stump. He looks to defend it and is beaten. He is struck right in front. Jadeja roars!. 147/8
92.5 to AA Sarwate, and finally after 68 balls they break the partnership Fuller ball on the off stump. He looks to sweep it as he needs to get to the other end. The pressure of the single and farming the strike finally catches up with him. 200/10

Aditya Sarwate2465962.451139000
6.2 to SS Patel, Nine more wickets for Vidarbha. Fuller ball outside the off stump. and flighted well. He lunges forward to defend it and gets an outside edge to the first slip. 19/1
8.1 to HM Desai, comes down the track and looks to flick it away but he gets a leading edge back to the bowler who takes the catch easily. 22/2
8.6 to CA Pujara, Sarwate gets Pujara twice in the match! Good length ball on the off and middle. He was playing for the turn there. He is struck on the pad right in front. Sarwate runs away from the fielders running in towards him, finds a moment of solace and lets go of a roar!. 22/3
39.6 to KR Makvana, what has happened over there? He is bowled! He gets one on the off stump. He leans forward and looks to let it go. He was playing for the turn where there wasn't any. The ball hits the outer part of the off stump and Makvana is shocked. Sarwate celebrates the wicket in the same manner as he did for Pujara's wicket. 88/6
49.5 to VM Jadeja, and his long vigil comes to end. Good length ball outside the off stump. He was looking to sweep it and plays all over the sweep shot. He is struck on the pad. He is shell-shocked over the lapse of concentration. He has to drag himself away to the dressing room now. 103/8
55.3 to JD Unadkat, Sarwate has his sixth! Fuller ball on the off stump. Unadkat has been looking to stretch forward or sweep. He finally succumbs to ball that was pitched on a fuller length and it sneaks in from below the bat and hits him on the pad. Vidarbha can start dreaming about the Ranji Trophy now. 121/9
Umesh Yadav1013113.10424010
17.5 to AV Vasavada, and Umesh Yadav gets among the wickets. Good length ball outside the off stump. He looks to run it down to third-man region and gets an outside edge back to the keeper. 35/4
Akshay Wakhare22.463731.631082000
24.3 to SP Jackson, half the team back in the hut. He comes down the track in an attempt to slog it. He is beaten by the turn and the leg stump is pegged back. There wasn't as much bounce as he was expecting. It kept low and he played the stroke all over it. 55/5
40.5 to PN Mankad, Mankad does exactly what Makvana did - he was playing for the turn and there wasn't any. He was struck on the back pad and it would've gone on to hit the off stump. These are the sort of deliveries that Australian batsmen get out to. Playing for the turn and getting beaten by deliveries where there isn't turn. 91/7
58.4 to DA Jadeja, Vidarbha are the Ranji Trophy champions for the second year in succession. Outside the leg stump. He looks to slog and gets a top edge to fine-leg where Sarwate moves to his right and takes the catch. 127/10
