Only an exciting closing ceremony could be seen on Thursday night before the skies opened up and made Friday, the reserve day, the only day that the match could be played. The match had to be called off after the Kolhapur Tuskers’ innings lasted 16 overs despite numerous rain interruptions.

Led by Kedar Jadhav, Kolhapur Tuskers fought hard to reach a score of 80 for eight, but unfortunately, the weather had the final say on the day.

Ankeet Bawane, the current Orange Cap holder, and left-handed batter Sahil Autade were both bowled out in the Powerplay before the first rain break by left-arm spinner Kunal Thorat, while Tuskers captain Jadhav (32, 28b, 2×4, 2×6) was dismissed by Vijay Pawale following the second interruption.

Following the rules of the game, if the Playoffs ended in a tie, the side that finished higher in the league stage would advance. The Jets were declared the winner by the match officials and the Maharashtra Cricket Association. Despite being deadlocked on points, the Jets outperformed the Tuskers in terms of net run rate.

Kazi accepted a payment of Rs. 50 lakh in addition to the trophy. Tuskers were only given a runners-up trophy and a cash prize of Rs. 25 lakhs.
