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
The margin of victory is 243 runs and UP have lost the finals of the Ranji Trophy for the second successive time; they lost to Delhi last year. The last-wicket stand of 55 between Gupta and Amir Khan frustrated Mumbai for a while but barring that one agonising passage, Mumbai looked on top for almost all day. They did well to come back in this match after being 55 for 4 in the first innings. They recovered to 402, thanks to a century from Rohit Sharma and a qualitatively better 99 by Abhishek Nayar. Rohit was lucky and his innings proved decisive in the outcome; Mohammad Kaif dropped him twice and UP missed a couple of run-outs. Had they fielded better, the match would well have been a closely contested one. Shukla batted well in UP's first innings, but Zaheer Khan triggered a collapse to put his team firmly in control.
After having gained a first innings lead and batted UP out of the game in the second innings, the events on the final day would have only served an academic purpose. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was UP's star, taking five wickets in the first innings and impressing with the bat.
Mohammad Kaif: "We have a young team and they've been learning quite fast. We fielded first to get some early wickets and we weren't good with the fielding. Shukla batted well for us. We did get bogged down in the first innings and Zaheer bowled superbly to restrict us. Congratulations to Mumbai for playing so well throughout. I must thank all the staff and the younger members of the side to have played so well and I'm confident we'll be a better side in the future."
Wasim Jaffer holds aloft the Ranji Trophy
Jaffer: "I thought UP bowled really well in the first session but Rohit and Nayar brought us back to get to 400. We feel really proud to have won this and we have a great history behind us. Whenever, a new player comes into the Mumbai team, we expect him to perform outstandingly, so there is a huge responsibility on our shoulders. We have a superb Ranji record and there have been some outstanding performers for us this season, and I'm happy about my own form as well."
