Mumbai waited 8 years to win the Ranji Trophy, last winning in 2015-16. Vidarbha, who won the last two Ranji finals, lost to Mumbai this time. Ajinkya Rahane led Mumbai to victory, becoming the 26th captain from Mumbai to win the trophy, after lifting Ranji Trophy 2024.

After being told to chase a big target of 538, Vidarbha ended Day 4 with 248 runs for 5 wickets in 92 overs. Akshay Wadkar, with 56 runs, and Harsh Dubey faced a tough challenge on the last day.

They didn’t lose any wickets in the morning session of Day 5 and reduced the target to below 200. Wadkar reached his century off 195 balls, creating some pressure for Mumbai.

Just as Dubey and Wadkar were dominating, Mumbai made a comeback. Tanush Kotian trapped Wadkar leg-before-wicket, then Tushar Deshpande removed Dubey, who scored 65 runs.
