    Ajinkya Rahane - Mumbai captain

    I would first like to appreciate Vidarbha, the way they fought in this match. It is not easy to chase 538. But they kept belief in the last innings. Really happy to see that. For us, it is a special moment. Last year, we could not qualify by one run. We knew we had the skills. But it was important to stay fit and set the tone in the dressing room. Ups and downs are a part of a career. I might have the least runs in the team but I’m happy we have the title. It is what matters the most. Personally, this is just a phase, you have to respect it and keep learning. We will celebrate tonight, then we’ll think about the road ahead. It’s been a long season. I would like to thank the backroom staff as well who worked so hard. What the players do everyone sees, but these guys keep the work going behind the scenes. I’ve been playing with Dhawal since U14. Whatever I say will not be enough. The way he’s helped the younger bowlers. His guidance has been crucial. Just wish him the best.

    Akshay Wadkar - Vidarbha captain

    There can be an innings where you don’t click. The first innings is crucial in the big matches. If you dismiss a big team like Mumbai for 224, then you should bat well. Credit to them for bowling well. I think pitch was tough throughout but it needed a courageous innings like the Mumbai batters should. The partnership between Ajju da and Musheer took the game away from us. Today, we were trying to play ball-by-ball and frustrate them. We wanted to be careful in the first hour. We played like it was our last wicket. (The biggest positive) This year, we worked a lot on fielding. Atul Ranade sir worked on it every day. We took some good catches which turned the match for us.

    Player of the tournament - Tanush Kotian

    Start of the season, we wanted to improve on the runner up. Everyone wanted the title. It was a combined effort from all. Last year, I got confidence on my batting. I’ve worked a lot on my batting. Ajju da helped me a lot on how to score hundreds. I just want to keep working hard, and work with my coaches and senior players to constantly keep getting better.

  • March 14, 2024 13:55
    Player of the Match - Musheer Khan

    This innings was very important for me. I just tried to stay out there for as long as possible and help my team. I enjoyed out in the middle with him (Rahane). We just tried to play with a straight bat. I’m proud to be in the Mumbai dugout. I’m elated for the 42nd title. Still a long road for me, I just want to focus on my process.

  • March 14, 2024 13:40
    Shardul Thakur on the title win

    Very special. When I debuted, we won the Ranji Trophy. When we won in 15/16, we did not have too many seniors. I joined this team late but the boys have worked hard since June. I enjoy playing in challenging situations. I always want to get my team out of trouble. I think that is what I tried in the semifinal and the final. I think I was able to help the team help set the big target.

  • March 14, 2024 13:38
    Dhawal Kulkarni on his retirement

    It is every cricketer’s dream to end with a high. This is my sixth final and the fifth title. I’ll never forget this day. A lovely gesture by Rahane to get me the final wicket. He told, ‘you’ve led us for so many years, do it once more’. I have learned so much from my seniors, I just tried to pass it on to my teammates now.

    VID 266/5 in 101 overs

    Mumbai loses all its review. The ball pops up into the silly point’s hands off Dubey’s pads. Mumbai thinks there is an inside edge too and goes up. The UltraEdge check shows the bat hit the pad and not the ball, and the final review is gone.

  • March 14, 2024 10:01
