8:45 AM IST Right then, that is it from this amazing final, and the Ranji Trophy 2023/24 season.

Mentions that on Day 5, he and Harsh Dubey wanted to see out the first hour and frustrate the Mumbai bowlers as they were the last recognized pair.

8:28 AM IST Presentation Time...
8:28 AM IST Shams Mulani to share a few words now. He says that he is really happy to win the Ranji trophy for the first time in his career. He also says that they couldn't win the last one but this time with the help of every single player's contribution they got the result. He continues that he always tries to help the team whether it's through bat or ball. Ends up saying, that their motivation was always high even though they failed to have any wickets in the first session and somehow that motivation helped them to win the final.
8:26 AM IST Shardul Thakur is up for a chat. He says that they haven't won the title for the past few years. Continues that this tournament is a long season and he joined the team for the last league game. Also says that it was exciting to play cricket in challenging situations. He ends up saying he is happy to contribute some important runs in the semi-final as well as in the final.
8:26 AM IST Dhawal Kulkarni, the man of the moment is being felicitated for his services to Mumbai and the game of cricket. He says he is really emotional as this game was really important for him. He also says that any cricketer would want to start and end at peek and he is grateful to have one. He also says that he was really pleased when Ajinkya Rahane and Tushar Deshpande insisted him to bowl the over and allowed him to get the last wicket. Ends up saying he got much knowledge about the game from his seniors and he also tried to give it to his juniors.
8:21 AM IST However, that was not the case as Vidarbha once again showed remarkable determination and resilience with both the skipper Akshay Wadkar and Harsh Dubey looking solid at the crease and made sure that they didn't lose any wickets in the first session and added 85 runs. Dubey notched up his half-century in the process while just after Lunch, the skipper registered an exceptional hundred. The duo added a crucial 130 runs which is among the highest in a final, but just after the century, the skipper fell which took the wind out of them as Dubey followed suit. Tanush Kotian and Tushar Deshpande picked up two wickets each to clean up the tail while, it was that man, Dhawal Kulkarni who sealed the win with a wicket and bids adieu to the game in the best way possible.
8:19 AM IST It was some fightback from Vidarbha on Day 4, but still, Mumbai maintained a significant advantage in the game. Despite a dismal first innings and being tasked with chasing 538 runs, Vidarbha batted throughout Day 4, losing just five wickets in the process. While the scoring rate was low for most of the day, Vidarbha picked up momentum in the final session. Karun Nair showcased resilience, playing more freely towards the end, while skipper Akshay Wadkar remained positive throughout his innings. The pair added 90 runs before Nair's dismissal late in the day left Vidarbha with half their side down. This loss of wickets was a critical blow, but the skipper remained unbeaten on 56, and Harsh Dubey showed promise as well. On the other hand, for the first time since Day 1, Mumbai found themselves under pressure. However, they managed to pick up wickets at crucial times, maintaining their advantage heading into Day 5. The pacers were sparingly used, with spinners Shams Mulani, Tanush Kotian, and Musheer Khan bowling the majority of the overs. Although they did a fine job of stifling the batters, there were moments where they could have been more consistent with their line and lengths. Despite this, with Musheer dismissing Karun Nair, Mumbai would have felt confident in their ability to wrap up Vidarbha's innings quickly on Day 5.
8:16 AM IST For Vidarbha, Harsh Dubey delivered an outstanding performance by claiming five wickets, showcasing his exceptional bowling skills, and making a significant impact on the game. Despite his remarkable efforts, Vidarbha found themselves in a challenging position, as they were tasked with chasing a formidable target of 537 runs. This demanding target sets a tough challenge for Vidarbha's batting lineup as they strive to achieve the trophy. On the other hand, Mumbai had a lead of 537 runs now! The significant lead that Mumbai had was a result of impressive individual performances by Musheer Khan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, and Shams Mulani. Musheer Khan's contribution of 136 runs, combined with Ajinkya Rahane's 73 runs, Shreyas Iyer's 95 runs, and Shams Mulani's unbeaten 50, collectively propelled Mumbai to a commanding position of strength and dominance. This cumulative total not only reflects the exceptional batting prowess of these players but also underscores Mumbai's formidable position in the match, firmly placing them ahead by a substantial margin of 537 runs as we headed to Day 4.
8:13 AM IST In Mumbai's reply, they initially faced early setbacks, but skipper Ajinkya Rahane and Musheer Khan steadied the ship with a solid partnership. Rahane showcased his class with a stylish half-century, while Musheer also reached his fifty in the final over of the day. Their unbeaten stand of 107 runs has put Mumbai in a commanding position going into Day 3. On the other hand, Vidarbha's bowling lacked impact in the second innings, especially after Aditya Sarwate's injury. Despite early breakthroughs by Yash Thakur and Harsh Dubey, they struggled to contain Mumbai's batting. Their batting also failed to make much impact as early in the day, they were bowled out for a mere 105 runs. Dhawal Kulkarni, Shams Mulani, and Tanush Kotian all of them got three wickets each for Mumbai, and with their batters in form, they looked all set to extend their lead even further on Day 3.
8:12 AM IST Mumbai started positively after being put into bat, with the openers adding 81 runs for the first wicket. However, once Bhupen Lalwani was dismissed, Mumbai's innings derailed as they lost wickets regularly. Despite contributions from Prithvi Shaw and Bhupen Lalwani, it was Shardul Thakur's heroic 75 that propelled them past 200. Vidarbha's bowling struggled initially but found success with spin, as Yash Thakur and Harsh Dubey impressed, picking up three wickets each. Umesh Yadav and Aditya Thakare chipped in with crucial breakthroughs. The pitch offered assistance to the bowlers, posing a challenge for Vidarbha's batters. In reply, Mumbai's dominance continued as they snared three quick wickets, putting Vidarbha under pressure by the day's end.
8:04 AM IST MUMBAI ARE THE CHAMPIONS FOR THE 42ND TIME! The crowd here is absolutely going wild and it is a fairytale ending for Dhawal Kulkarni as he picked up the last wicket to seal the title. They finally get their hand on the coveted trophy after last winning it in the 2015-16 Ranji Trophy season. The celebrations are going on around the stadium as Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawal Kulkarni, and all the players are taking in the applause. Mumbai is called the 'Home of Cricket' and we can say that normalcy have been resumed. However, we cannot forget the fight that Vidarbha showed while chasing this humongous target and our hearts go out to them.

7:10 AM IST We are back for the penultimate session of the Ranji Trophy final! The players are already out in the middle now. Akshay Wadkar and Harsh Dubey to resume batting for Vidarbha. Tanush Kotian to bowl the first over after Lunch. Let's play...
7:09 AM IST ... DAY 5, SESSION 2 ...
6:46 AM IST Right then, Vidarbha are still very much in the game and they lost five men of their side but Akshay Wadkar and Harsh Dubey showcased their batting prowess to anchor the innings exquisitely and would like to continue this to stretch the scoreline towards the target. On the other end, Mumbai will need some advice from the coaching staffs as nothing has worked for them. Join us in a short while after the Lunch at 12.40 pm IST (7:10 am GMT).
6:42 AM IST Mumbai on the flip side, tried everything in their bag to dismiss this rugged partnership but nothing worked for them. They also lost all of their reviews which they obviously regret as they might face situations where they would need it but nothing they could do except repent. Ajinkya Rahane started with a pacer and a spinner duo, then changed to a double-spinner attack, and yet again he brought the experienced Dhawal Kulkarni but nothing could break the partnership. We also witness how Ajinkya Rahane, Prithvi Shaw, and Dhawal Kulkarni together, discussing with the bowlers in between the overs but Mumbai needs to restrategize as soon as possible as the confidence is just pilling up over the opposition on-pitch batters.
6:33 AM IST SESSION SUMMARY - 85 runs and no wickets in 33 overs! Vidarbha overnight batters are slowly and steadily adding runs on the scoreboard which has certainly kept the hopes online for the side. Akshay Wadkar, the skipper has stepped up and has a huge responsibility to play his game at the same time while guiding the young prospect, Harsh Dubey who has also performed exceptionally. He completed his half-century, and both were impeccable with some lusty blows in the middle of some overs. They were really well at communicating with each other for running between the wickets. Harsh Dubey also got a lifeline in the 117th over as he was given out by the Umpire but reviewed instantly to stay alive on the pitch. They have formed a sturdy partnership of 110 runs off 229 deliveries but they still have 205 runs on board to chase till the end of the day. Their prime objective was to stay on the pitch till lunch which they succeeded, but their now objective will be to keep the momentum flowing till tea break keeping the target in mind.

5:19 AM IST Drinks! A solid first hour or so in this session and Vidarbha have managed to get through it unscathed. Akshay Wadkar and Harsh Dubey are looking good out there and they are negotiating the bowling attack well, but now they will also need to keep an eye on the runs as well. Mumbai have bowled well but there haven't been any clear-cut opportunities till now and they have lost all the reviews as well which makes it even more difficult. However, they still have a lot of runs in their bank and will be looking to get a breakthrough before Lunch and expose the lower middle order of Vidarbha. An exciting phase of cricket awaits us.

3:58 AM IST We are all set for Day 5 to begin! The Mumbai players are in a huddle just outside the boundary ropes and they spread out to take their respective field positions. Dhawal Kulkarni walks out for one last time in a Mumbai jersey and it is a special day for him. Harsh Dubey and Akshay Wadkar are the two overnight batters for Vidarbha. We will see spin straightaway as Musheer Khan is ready to start proceedings wit the ball. Here we go...
3:05 AM IST On the flip side, Vidarbha batted well but, still lost half of their side and that would certainly be a concern for the team. However, the two overnight batters, the skipper, Akshay Wadkar and Harsh Dubey would continue on the last day of the final. Akshay Wadkar is set and has already played an exceptional inning to back the team at the time when they needed someone to step up. Before him, Karun Nair had an impeccable knock and scored 74 runs off 220 deliveries but unfortunately was dismissed. Harsh Dubey also came on the pitch just before the Stumps on Day 4, and was able to hut a few lusty blows. They need to pull off a miracle if they want to get their hands on that glorifying trophy and a lot will depend on the overnight batters. But the question lies that, will Mumbai stroll to an unprecedented 42nd title win? Or will Vidarbha conjure something magical and put the pressure on the hosts? Let’s find out! Stick around as the start of the Final Day isn’t far away.
3:02 AM IST Mumbai have a solid lead and are in the driver’s seat in this game. Day 4 was decent overall as they succeeded in getting five wickets before Stumps. The pacers failed to get any breakthroughs but the spinners did their job effectively. The centurion of Mumbai’s second inning, Musheer Khan was once again exceptional but this time with the ball showing his versatility by picking up two crucial wickets. The home side would like to keep their patience as the wicket is likely to assist the spinners and hope that they can replicate their performance. They will hope to make early inroads that will set the tone for them.
3:00 AM IST Hello and a warm welcome to one and all. It is Day 5, the D-Day of the Ranji Trophy final between Mumbai and Vidarbha at the iconic Wankhede Stadium. Vidarbha still needs 290 runs in 90 overs but the hopes are still on for them. Mumbai needs 5 wickets and have the whole day to get the job done and clinch the title.
2:59 AM IST ... DAY 5, SESSION 1 ...
11:38 AM IST Right then, this has been a stellar Finale thus far and for most of the game, Mumbai have been firm favorites. However, Vidarbha have managed to stay defiant and almost got themselves in a position from where they could even look to chase down the target. They have lost half their side and with 290 runs still needed, Mumbai are back as firm favorites. How much more can Vidarbha delay the inevitable? Or can they even beat the odds and clinch an unlikely victory? Join us on Thursday, 14 March and watch Day 5 unfold. The first ball will be bowled at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT) but you can tune in to our build-up a lot sooner. Cheers!
11:35 AM IST For the first time since Day 1, Mumbai were under the pump a bit but every now and then, they found a way to pick up wickets at the right times and will feel that they can complete the job on Day 5. The pacers didn't get much of a bowl and were used sparingly. The trio of spinners, Shams Mulani, Tanush Kotian and Musheer Khan bowled the majority of the overs and for most parts, they did a fine job of strangling the batters. Mulani picked up the very first wicket but Kotian and Khan ended with two a piece. Overall, the pitch didn't have much demons in it and the spinners will feel they could have been a bit more consistent with their line and lengths. However, with Musheer getting rid of Karun Nair, Mumbai will feel they can get into the tail of Vidarbha and finish things off quickly.
11:34 AM IST WE ARE HEADING INTO DAY 5! This has been some fightback from Vidarbha on Day 4 but still, Mumbai are pretty far ahead in the game. After a dismal first innings and being asked to chase 538 runs, Vidarbha batted the whole of Day 4 losing just 4 wickets in the process and although the scoring rate was fairly low for most part of the day but in the final session, Vidarbha picked it up. Karun Nair kept on fighting and was able to play a bit freely in the last session and skipper Akshay Wadkar remained positive throughout his inning and the pair added on 90 runs before Nair was dismissed late in the day and Vidarbha lost half their side. This could be a fatal blow but the skipper is unbeaten on 56 and Harsh Dubey has shown a bit of promise as well.

9:30 AM IST We are back for the final session of Day 4! The Umpires are back out in the middle and so are the players of Mumbai. Karun Nair and Akshay Wadkar will continue their partnership. Shardul Thakur gets the job to start the first over after the Tea break.
9:29 AM IST ... DAY 4, SESSION 3 ...
9:19 AM IST On the flip side, the session seemed to be poised for Mumbai and they still hold a firm control to win the 42nd final of the Ranji trophy. The bowlers were yet again having a bit of difficulty finding wickets. However, there they passed the patience test and got their first breakthrough after lunch in 45th over, total credit goes to Musheer Khan, and broke the partnership which might create some serious problems for him. After the event, they again tried to suppress the new batter by doing some aggressive field setup but failed to find one instantly. But they didn't have to wait for that long as an impeccable review from Tanush Kotian helped him bag another wicket into his account. Mumbai are still in the driver's seat and a couple of wickets more will carve Mumbai's name on the Ranji Trophy 2023-24. Joins us soon after the Tea break.
9:14 AM IST SESSION SUMMARY - 29 overs, 51 runs, and 2 wickets. The wickets are certainly an issue for Vidarbha. They lost many wickets and still have a humongous score to chase. Post-lunch Karun Nair and Aman Mokhade continued their inning with a slow pace. They were looking really good, but just when it seemed they would survive for the tea, the wicket tumbled. They formed a rugged partnership of 54 runs off 152 deliveries but eventually broke down as Aman Mokhade was dismissed. Yash Rathod, the centurion off their semis was looking confident enough to put some runs on the board for the side but he too was hunted down after an incredible review taken by the opposition for LBW. But on the other side, Karun Nair tried to perform some unorthodox shots to trigger the scoreline but after Vidarbha lost a couple of wickets he lowered his gear and defended his wicket till the end of the tea break. The skipper shook hands with settled, Karun Nair and dragged the partnership till tea time.

OUT! LBW! An appeal for LBW but the umpire turns it down. The bowler and keeper seem convinced and Ajinkya Rahane is forced into taking the review but that seemed to be going down leg. This is bowled on a shortish length by Tanush Kotian and angled in from around the stumps. Yash Rathod looks to defend off the back foot but misses and gets hit on the pads and one can see the middle and off stump as well. UltraEdge shows a spike when the bat is next to the ball but it seems to be hitting the pad at the same time as well.

7:13 AM IST We are back for the post-Lunch session! The umpires are out in the middle and so are the players of Mumbai. The pair of Aman Mokhade and Karun Nair is set to resume their stay at the crease for Vidarbha. It will be Musheer Khan to continue bowling after the break.
7:11 AM IST ... DAY 4, SESSION 2 ...
6:45 AM IST Right then, Vidarbha's batting order still have a lot of work to do as they still have 434 runs on the board to chase. On the other end, Mumbai's bowlers were always in aggressive mood, always asking questions to the batter on the crease. But anything can happen in this game, as we all have witnessed miracles happen. So let's find out together and do join us in a short while post Lunch-Break.
6:41 AM IST On the flip side, it was a decent session for Mumbai but a couple of more wickets would make Wankhede even happier. The side began with their two experienced pacers but failed to get any positive result, unlike the other day. The other pacers also didn't find any way to disperse the opposition's opening batters. Ajinkya Rahane brings up his spinners online and sees some spark on the pitch as the deliveries were turning in and out vigorously. In the 19th over, their patience showed colors as Shams Mulani got the first and important breakthrough of the day for the side. In the very next over, an outstanding piece of bowling from Tanush Kotian squared the set batter and cleaned him up. They tried to keep the pressure on the new set batters on the pitch but failed to get another breakthrough till Lunch.
6:38 AM IST SESSION SUMMARY - 36 overs, 94 runs, and 2 wickets. Vidarbha's overnight openers started off their session pretty slow and steady. Atharva Taide and Dhruv Shorey were communicating pretty well and formed a sturdy partnership. Atharva Taide from one end was a bit struggling to connect the delivery but from the other end, Dhruv Shorey was looking really good as he was finding the middle of the willow every single time. They formed a rugged partnership of 64 runs off 113 deliveries but it ended with the dismissal of Atharva Taide when he was just looking set on the pitch. After the event, just next over, Dhruv Shorey also has to walk down the pavilion after being clean-bowled. However, Karun Nair and Aman Mokhade the new set pair did pretty well to absorb the tension and steady the ship for the side, making sure there were no hiccups till lunch as they have still a lot of work pending. Aman Mokhade was looking really good with his sweeps to the spinners throughout the inning but Karun Nair was having a bit issue facing the pacer when Tushar Deshpande from Mumbai rejoined the attack. But did well to survive till Lunch break.

A dot to end and that will be Lunch on Day 4! Pitched up on the stumps, Karun Nair punches it back to the bowler and Tushar Deshpande tries to show some aggression by firing it back at the batter. The throw is wild though and Hardik Tamore does really well behind the stumps to stop that one.

Musheer Khan to Karun Nair, no run

Another huge appeal from Musheer Khan for LBW and the umpire turns it down again. This one seems close and Ajinkya Rahane is convinced to take the review. Top delivery though as this one is drifted into middle and leg and Khan gets it turn away sharply after pitching. Karun Nair leans on to block but is beaten past the outside edge and gets hit on the back leg. Nothing on UltraEdge and Ball Tracking shows that the ball turned a bit too much and would have missed off stump. An excellent onfield decision.

3:59 AM IST We are all set for Day 4 to begin! The two umpires are out in the middle and so are the players of Mumbai who get into a huddle before taking the field. The opening pair of Vidarbha, Atharva Taide and Dhruv Shorey who are also the overnight batters, are set to resume their stay at the crease. It will be Dhawal Kulkarni to start proceedings with almost a brand-new ball on Day 4. Let's play...
3:12 AM IST Vidarbha on the other hand were made to toil hard in the field in the first half of Day 3 but soon, they managed to pick up wickets in clusters. Harsh Dubey was the standout as he picked up a five-wicket haul but the pacers were pretty average. They need to pull off a miracle if they are to get their hands on that trophy and a lot will depend on how the top order plays. Can Vidarbha conjure up something magical and put pressure on the hosts? Or will Mumbai stroll to an unprecedented 42nd title? We shall find out in due time. Stick around as the start of Day 4 isn't far away.
3:07 AM IST Mumbai had a phenomenal outing with the bat on Day 3 and the game moved at a brisk pace. There were two big partnerships that put Mumbai in command as Musheer Khan got a gem of a ton and became the youngest to do so for Mumbai in the Final since Sachin Tendulkar. Skipper Ajinkya Rahane and Shreyas Iyer missed out on tons and the latter played a poor shot while being on 95. There was decent resistance from the lower order as well to take the lead well beyond 500 runs and they will look to bowl out the opposition on Day 4 itself.
3:01 AM IST Hello and a warm welcome to one and all. It is Day 4 of the Ranji Trophy Final between Mumbai and Vidarbha at the Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai have given Vidarbha a daunting task of 538 runs but there are two complete days left in the match and all hope isn't lost for Vidarbha just yet.
2:59 AM IST ... DAY 4, SESSION 1 ...
11:46 AM IST Right then, the grand finale of the Ranji Trophy 2024 is going well, with Mumbai having their noses in front at the end of Day 3 as well. Dhruv Shorey and Atharva Taide will resume their innings at the crease for Vidarbha on Day 4. It will begin on Wednesday, the 13th of March, at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). Do join us earlier for the pre-match build-up as we anticipate another day of riveting cricketing action. Until then, cheers and goodbye!
11:39 AM IST For Vidarbha, Harsh Dubey was undoubtedly the pick of the bowlers. He starred for Vidarbha with a fifer, ably supported by Yash Thakur and Aman Mokhade in the bowling attack. They came to bat with only 2 overs left in the day's play. Shams Mulani bowled the first over and conceded 4 runs, while Shardul bowled the final over and gave away 6 runs. Dhruv Shorey and Atharva Taide will look to build on a gritty stand now and claw their way in the game slowly.
11:34 AM IST SESSION SUMMARY - 22.3 overs, 71 runs, and 4 wickets. Mumbai were excellent with the bat which puts them in the commanding position as of now. Their openers, Prithvi Shaw and Bhupen Lalwani fell early, but Musheer Khan and skipper Ajinkya Rahane staged a strong comeback. Rahane's crucial half-century steadied Mumbai to 141/2 by the end of day two. Despite Rahane's dismissal on day three, Shreyas Iyer and Musheer Khan built a solid partnership, with Iyer falling just short of a century. Mumbai's lower order contributed, with Musheer scoring a remarkable 136 before getting out. Shams Mulani's gritty innings further boosted Mumbai's total, giving them a lead of 537 runs! They failed to pick any wickets in the two overs that they bowled. They will be looking to grab some quick wickets at the start of Day 4 and put their hands on the trophy!
