Aditya Tare Stars With Bat As Mumbai Beat Delhi To Lift Vijay Hazare Trophy

Aditya Tare starred with the bat as Mumbai defeated Delhi by four wickets to clinch the Vijay Hazare Trophy at M Chinnaswamy stadium on Saturday. This is Mumbai’s first title win in the competition since 2006-07 season.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer’s decision to bowl first turned out to be spot on.  Fast-bowlers Shivam Dubey (3/29) and Dhawal Kulkarni (3/30) picked up three wickets apiece to help Mumbai bowl out Delhi for a paltry 177 in 45.4 overs.  The national capital-based outfit were off to a poor start with Kulkarni and Deshpande making the most of the helpful of conditions.

In-form skipper Gautam Gambhir departed for just one in second over off the innings.  Unmukt Chand (13) and Manan Sharma (5) also joined Gambhir in the hut soon as Delhi found themselves 3 down for just 21 after six overs.  Nitish Rana (13) and Dhruv Shorey (31) then stopped the rot for a brief period before the former was removed by Dubey with the scoreboard reading just 60.

Delhi kept on losing wickets at regular intervals as half of their team was already back in the pavilion with only 81 runs on the board. Thereafter, Pawan Negi (21), Subodh Bhati (25) and Himmat Singh (41) scored vital runs to take Delhi to 177.

In reply, Mumbai were also off to a similar start. In fact, they were off to an even worse start. Mumbai lost in-form Prithvi Shaw for eight in third ball of the innings after he smashed two consecutive boundaries of Navdeep Saini.  Ajinkya Rahane (10), Iyer (7) and Suryakumar Yadav (4) were sent back cheaply by Saini and Kulwant Khejroliya as the game turned on its head.  Mumbai were reeling at 40 for 4 in the eighth over.
