In such a situation, while congratulating the team, Sachin has praised some players. He also praised the Vidarbha team as they were in a good position at one point while chasing the mammoth target of 538 runs as captain Akshay Wadkar scored a century and Harsh Dubey troubled Mumbai with a half-century.

Congratulating the Mumbai team, Sachin Tendulkar wrote on social media, “Many congratulations to the Mumbai cricket team on winning their 42nd Ranji Trophy! Vidarbha’s counter-performance added excitement to the match, especially for Karun, Akshay, and Harsh, who batted very well and made the match very interesting. Mumbai bowlers kept bowling consistently, and finally, the breakthrough was made by Tanush, who took four wickets in the fourth innings. It was a brilliant display of cricket that enthralled all of us. That makes domestic cricket very important.”

Talking about the match, the Mumbai team had scored only 224 runs while batting first, but the Vidarbha team could score only 105 runs in its first innings. In this way, Mumbai got a lead of 119 runs based on the first innings. One thing became clear from this: even if the match ends in a draw, only the Mumbai team will become the champion because the tournament rules are such that the team that takes the lead based on the first innings in the knockout will be the winner.

After this, in the second innings, Mumbai scored 418 runs and gave a target of 538 runs to Vidarbha, but the Vidarbha team could score only 368 runs.
