Follow LIVE updates and scorecard from Day 5 of Ranji Trophy 2022 Final between Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh on our LIVE blog here
Ranji Trophy Final Day 4 report: Mumbai cut a majority of their deficit down to 49 on day four of the Ranji Trophy final at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday (June 25). But it was Madhya Pradesh, thanks to a crucial 162-run lead, who are in firm control of the final and lifting the trophy, as Rajat Patidar notched up a fine 122 while Saransh Jain brought up his maiden first-class fifty to take the side to 536.
Though Mumbai are 113/2 in 22 overs at stumps, they are running out of time for giving themselves a small chance at winning the prestigious trophy. After getting Madhya Pradesh out for 536, Prithvi Shaw and makeshift opener Hardik Tamore (as Yashasvi Jaiswal didn't open due to ankle injury) started off well for a 63-run opening stand. Both batters got reprieves - Shaw was dropped by pacer Gaurav Yadav while Tamore was given a life by Rajat Patidar at first slip.
That Winning Feeling!

That brings an end to our coverage as well!
Madhya Pradesh, not considered among cricketing elites during the past decade, on Sunday humbled domestic powerhouse Mumbai by six wickets in a one-sided Ranji Trophy final under coach Chandrakant Pandit, who exorcised the ghosts of losing one at this very ground 23 summers ago. On the final day, Mumbai could only manage 269 in their second innings, leaving MP with a paltry target of 108, and they did it in style as Pandit won a record sixth national title as a coach.

Chandrakant Pandit, in tears
MP coach was emotional after the win as he back in 1998/99 he led MP to their maiden Ranji final but they lost to Karnataka back then. He says that winning it now made me emotional.
Madhya Pradesh are Ranji Trophy champions 2022. Another first-time champion in recent years. Lovely scenes in the end. Chandrakant Pandit gets lofted on the shoulders by MP players. A nice warm hug b/w Pandit and Amol Muzumdar, Mumbai's coach. pic.twitter.com/hL52FIksYd
