MPL 2024: Ratnagiri Jets thumps Nashik to defend title

Ratnagiri Jets thumped Eagle Nashik Titans by 24 runs to defend its Maharashtra Premier League (MPL) title at the MCA International Stadium.

The first innings saw a below-par score of 160 and it looked like an easy task for the Titans but a clinical bowling performance won the Ratnagiri Jets its second title in a row. In 2023, Ratnagiri Jets was declared winners after its final against PBG Kolhapur Tuskers was abandoned due to inclement weather. 

“We are very happy to able to achieve this historic feat of winning the MPL twice in a row. Everyone has really played their part well and taken responsibility that has steered the Ratnagiri Jets to victory. We have consistently played good cricket and winning this trophy again feels great,” said Azim Kazi, captain of Ratnagiri Jets.
