The final of the 2020-21 edition of the Vijay Hazare Trophy saw a nail-biting affair between Uttar Pradesh and Mumbai. The game ended with Mumbai lifting the trophy by outplaying the opposition in all three facets of the game and comprehensively defeating UP by 6 wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Mumbai.

The match commenced with UP captain Karan Sharma winning the toss and opting to put the total on the board first. Batting in the first innings, Uttar Pradesh presented a stunning show as they managed to post an above-par total of 312 runs on the scoreboard in 50 overs.

The opening pair of Madhav Kaushik and Samarth Singh stitched a crucial partnership of a massive 122 runs with Prashant Solanki giving the first breakthrough to Mumbai and Samarth going back to the pavilion after scoring 55 runs. Singh was soon followed by Karan Sharma as he scored a golden duck. 

Priyam Garg also couldn’t contribute much as he lost his wicket off Tanush Kotian after scoring just 21 runs. Akshdeep Nath, who came to bat at number 5, got involved in a partnership with Kaushik to take the team to a decent total of 312 runs. The opening batsman Kaushik remained not-out as he played a remarkable knock of 158 runs. For Mumbai, Tanush scalped two wickets while Prashant had one under his belt.

Aditya Tare takes Mumbai home

Chasing the target of 313 runs, the Mumbai batman went all guns blazing against UP as they started firing from the very first delivery. The opening batsman Prithvi Shaw continued his blistering form as he played a sublime knock of 73 runs off just 39 deliveries including 10 boundaries and 4 maximums. 

The wicketkeeper-batsman Aditya Tare also shined with the willow as he remained not-out with an innings of 118 off 107 balls under his name. The final touches were applied by Shivam Dube who played a quickfire knock of 42 runs off 28 deliveries to help Mumbai achieve the massive target in just 41.3 overs.

For UP, the bowlers had a bad day in the office as they could neither scalp timely wickets nor could stop the flow of the runs and this resulted in them ending the season as runners-up.
