    ALL OVER: Vidarbha have won the Ranji Trophy 2018-19 as Jadeja is dismissed and Wakhare picks up the last wicket. Vidarbha have won by 78 runs. 

  • 11:02 (IST)

    OUT: Sarwate has his sixth wicket in the innings as he removes skipper Unadkat trapped in front. This is great bowling the left-hander as he takes his wicket tally this season to 55 from 11 games. Vidarbha are just one wicket away from a win. 

  • 10:39 (IST)

    OUT: Jadeja's marathon innings come to an end as Sarwate bags his fifth wicket and tenth in the match. He tosses the ball up and the batsman goes for a slog sweep and misses the line of the ball completely. Saurashtra are 103/8.

  • 10:30 (IST)

    Vishvaraj Jadeja brings up his third first-class fifty and he is keeping Saurashtra in the game. The 20-year-old has shown great composure in the big final.

  • 10:13 (IST)

    Saurashtra

  • 10:09 (IST)

    Saurashtra are now six down! Makvana offered no shot to this delivery which kept straight and hit the off-stump. A promising looking partnership comes to an end and it's that man Sarwate who once again has done the job for Vidarbha.

11:22 (IST)

Vidarbha coach Chandrakant Pandit says that they wanted to prove the critics wrong, who believed that the team won last year with a fluke. 

11:19 (IST)

Wasim Jaffer has made another record as has won 10 Ranji final in as many seasons. What an exceptional record for this has been by the veteran.

11:16 (IST)
11:13 (IST)

ALL OVER: Vidarbha have won the Ranji Trophy 2018-19 as Jadeja is dismissed and Wakhare picks up the last wicket. Vidarbha have won by 78 runs. 

11:06 (IST)

Wakhare comes into the attack and here is a chance for him to bag his third wicket. Looking back on the season, what a memorable performance this has been by Vidarbha to come this far, that too twice on the trot. 

11:02 (IST)

OUT: Sarwate has his sixth wicket in the innings as he removes skipper Unadkat trapped in front. This is great bowling the left-hander as he takes his wicket tally this season to 55 from 11 games. Vidarbha are just one wicket away from a win. 

10:56 (IST)

Jadeja and Unakat are trying their best to fight it out in the middle. And the latter gets a boundary too but the target is quite some distance away for them. The score stands at 188/8. 

10:45 (IST)

This has been an ordinary batting performance by Saurashtra till now. But they still have hope as Dharmendra Jadeja and Jaydev Unadkat are still on the crease and they are no dud with the bat. It's 105/8. 

10:39 (IST)

OUT: Jadeja's marathon innings come to an end as Sarwate bags his fifth wicket and tenth in the match. He tosses the ball up and the batsman goes for a slog sweep and misses the line of the ball completely. Saurashtra are 103/8.

10:30 (IST)

Vishvaraj Jadeja brings up his third first-class fifty and he is keeping Saurashtra in the game. The 20-year-old has shown great composure in the big final.

10:27 (IST)

Sarwate and Wakhare are now bowling in tandem and it's going to be important for them to remain patient.

10:24 (IST)

Dharmendrasinh Jadeja is yet to get off the mark while Vishvaraj Jadeja has kept one side intact and is moving towards his fifty.

10:13 (IST)

Saurashtra have lost two in two overs now. Mankad can consider himself as unlucky as the impact was outside off but umpire Chettithody Shamshuddin wasted no time in raising his finger. Wakhare gets his second and Vidarbha are now just three wickets away from the title.

10:09 (IST)

Saurashtra are now six down! Makvana offered no shot to this delivery which kept straight and hit the off-stump. A promising looking partnership comes to an end and it's that man Sarwate who once again has done the job for Vidarbha.

09:56 (IST)

Both Jadeja and Makvana are focusing on strike rotation and their first goal will be to bring the runs required to below 100. As of now, they need 122 runs.

09:47 (IST)

Jadeja managed to score a century in the group-stage encounter against Vidarbha and the onus is now once again on him to take Saurashtra home. Meanwhile, Umesh is getting some movement and has started finding some good rhythm.

09:38 (IST)

Umesh Yadav hasn't looked at his best in this innings. He has struggled to get his line and length right and hasn't caused that threat that Vidarbha would have liked him to.

09:35 (IST)

Sarwate bowls one on the pads and Jadeja tucks it towards deep fine leg for a boundary. Not a bad start for Saurashtra.

09:28 (IST)

After starting cautiously, Kamlesh Makvana shows first sign of aggression as he sweeps Sarwate for a boundary. They still need 141 runs and it's important that they keep the scoreboard ticking.

09:21 (IST)

Aditya Sarwate has once again done the job for Vidarbha and Saurashtra are left with a huge task in their hands. Vishvaraj Jadeja has looked good but he will need all the support from the tailenders. 

09:19 (IST)
