New Delhi, March 14
Captain Prithvi Shaw’s 73 off 39 balls followed by former skipper Aditya Tare’s unbeaten 118 guided Mumbai to a crushing six-wicket victory over Uttar Pradesh in the final of the Vijay Hazare Trophy today.
Opting to bat, UP were powered to 314/4 by Madhav Kaushik, who made an unbeaten 158, but his knock was overshadowed by Shaw’s blitzkrieg which set the platform for Tare to finish off the chase with 51 balls remaining. This is Mumbai’s fourth Hazare title and the one to remember for Shaw, who made 827 runs in the tournament, a record. — PTI
