Mumbai did to Delhi what the latter had done to the others. The former, who will meet Bengal in the final, thrashed the hosts by 140 runs in the semifinal of the Vijay Hazare Trophy at the Ferozshah Kotla.

By getting bowled out for 155 on Saturday, Delhi's unbeaten run in seven games came to an end.After winning the toss, Mumbai skipper Ajit Agarkar opted to bat even when the last few games here have gone in favour of the team batting second. Openers Wasim Jaffer and Ajinkya Rahane carried on from where they had left off in the last match. Rahane (42) was stumped in the 19th over when he came down to left-arm spinner Varun Sood. Jaffer showed why he is still considered a class act by hammering Sood for four consecutive boundaries in the 34th over. He was trapped leg before in the next over by Parwinder Awana and missed his century by eight runs.http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2012/3/11_03_pg-21a.jpg

Delhi were out of the contest inside the first 15 overs, losing their top-four to rash shorts.

Mumbai 295/ 5 in 50 overs (Jaffer 92, Nayar 72 not out) bt Delhi 155/9 in 45 overs (Anand 51; Revandkar 3/37)
