Mumbai win Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021

Mumbai rode Aditya Tare’s maiden List A hundred and Prithvi Shaw’s brilliance with the bat to chase down 313 against UP in the Vijay Hazare Trophy final. Earlier, Kaushik had scored 158* off 156 for UP.

Mumbai won by 6 wickets.

Prithvi Shaw | Winning skipper: Everyone contributed in this tournament, it wasn’t an individual. From the support staff, the players, this trophy goes to everyone. Tare batted so well today. It could have gone any way in that situation and everyone was happy for him because finishing isn’t easy. I have been captaining from a very young age. I have captained under-14s, under-16s, under-19s, India A and I enjoy this process. It was difficult in Australia, and the only thing I wanted to do was go back and work hard, fill the gaps and come back strongly.

Karan Sharma | Losing skipper: We were like 30-40 runs short. It was just a bad day for our bowlers. We learnt a lot from this game because they batted really well. I want to thank our coaches and our support staff, the players and my family.
