Mumbai: Jan 29, 2013

Saurashtra fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat conceded that his team was hampered by the big names in the Mumbai line-up after the home side clinched their 40th Ranji Trophy title with a crushing win by an innings and 125 runs on Monday.

“It was a big occasion for all of us. We lacked the firepower in the batting line-up. They (Mumbai) had many big names as well and that was playing on our minds,” said Unadkat, according to a report on Mid-Day

A dominant Mumbai was triumphant after skipper Ajit Agarkar and Dhawal Kulkarni wrecked Saurashtra, to win the final in inside three days at the Wankhede Stadium.

After taking a first-innings lead of 207 runs, Mumbai shot out the visitors for just 82 in the less than 40 overs.

Agarkar snapped up four wickets for 15 runs while his younger teammate Kulkarni grabbed five for 32 to complete splendid match figures of nine for 56.

Wicketkeeper Aditya Tare had more reasons to celebrate. He claimed the most dismissals in the season – a record 41, with 39 catches and two stumpings. Saurashtra’s 82 was the third lowest total in a Ranji final.

“I was quite surprised the way Saurashtra batted in the second innings. We didn’t expect that,” said Agarkar.
