88.2 Balwinder Sandhu to Rujul Bhatt, no run, huge appeal as Rujul Bhatt tried to shuffle across his sticks. The impact was well outside off and the batsman was safe. Umpire Nitin Menon was not impressed

88.1 Balwinder Sandhu to Rujul Bhatt, no run, outside off and well wide, Rujul Bhatt sees it through

It was back in 1990-91 when Mumbai were defeated in the Ranji finals. Kapil Dev led Haryana had won a cliff-hanger by 2 runs. Parthiv Patel might not match the stature of Kapil nor would he match up in altitude. But this will go down as one of the biggest moments of Ranji Trophy history

87.3 SN Thakur to Parthiv Patel, out Caught&Bowled!! He is gone!! Parthive is gone. He is livid. Short ball and he is late on the pull to scoop it up for the bowler to run forward and take it. A wicket too late in the day for Mumbai but a wicket nonetheless. End of a stellar knock from the skipper. He has played out of his skins to ensure Gujarat are in the last lap of the chase. The entire ground along with the Gujarat camp stand up and applaud. No such celebrations for Thakur. Parthiv Patel c and b SN Thakur 143(196) [4s-24]

SN Thakur to Parthiv Patel, THAT'S OUT!! Caught&Bowled!!

87.2 SN Thakur to Parthiv Patel, FOUR, this man can do no wrong! They will write songs about this knock. As delicious as a Dhokla it was and Parthiv Patel gobbled it up with his drive down the ground. The man at mid-on dived in vain but the ball raced away to the fence

86.1 Balwinder Sandhu to Rujul Bhatt, no run, starts with a back of a length outside off, Bhatt hops on his toes and taps it on the off-side

Welcome back! Sandhu with the ball. Here we go

Tea, day five: So, after 14 sessions, we can say with conviction that Gujarat will win this game. It's just a matter of time. They need just 27 runs with an entire session in hand and their captain Parthiv Patel is going strong. A mammoth 139 runs in the session for the loss of one wicket. When Juneja departed playing a loose shot, Mumbai had a mini opening, but that's been buried by this partnership between Patel and Rujul Bhatt who have added 80 runs in just 122 deliveries. Runs have come thick and fast with the new ball as well. Join us back for the final session which is all in readiness to crown a new champion..
