Mumbai’s home team broke the world record for most wins by the most margin in first-class cricket as they beat Uttarakhand by a huge margin of 725 runs in the Ranji Trophy 2022 quarter-finals to enter the semi-finals on Thursday (June 9).

Mumbai broke New South Wales’ 92-year-old Sheffield Shield record when they beat Queensland by 685 runs. In the Ranji Trophy, the previous record for the highest margin for a win was held by Bengal, who defeated Odisha by 540 runs in 1953–54.

Mumbai’s world record comes a day after Bengal broke the 129-year-old one with half-centuries from all nine of their batsmen in an innings against Jharkhand in another quarter-final. Mumbai will now face Uttar Pradesh in the semi-finals of the prestigious domestic competition.

The 41-time Ranji Trophy champion, who dominated from day one, declared his second innings at 261/3, setting Uttarakhand an impossible target of 794 runs. He had stacked 647/8 declared in his first essay, riding on debutant Suved Parkar’s (252) maiden double century.

Uttarakhand who were partially bundled out for 114 in their first essay, once again succumbed to the Mumbai bowlers as they were bowled out for just 69 runs in the second innings. Mumbai bowlers led by veteran fast bowler Dhawal Kulkarni created a ruckus. Kulkarni (3/11) took three wickets each along with in-form left-arm spinner Shams Mulani (3/15) and off-spinner Tanush Kotian (3/13) as none of the Uttarakhand batsmen had any backbone. did not appear.

Kulkarni wreaked havoc as he first trapped opener Kamal Singh (0) and then rival skipper Jay Bista (0) in front of the wickets, with the opposition at 1/2. He then clean bowled Robin Bisht (3) with a ball in which Uttarakhand was facing a heavy defeat.

In-form Mulani, who had hit a half-century in the first innings, swung into action and ran into the middle order. His victims included Kunal Chandela (21), Dikshanshu Negi (5) and Mayank Mishra (0). Wickets kept falling for the hill state, even as Kotian dismissed three lower-order batsmen in quick succession as well to grab the final wicket of Agrim Tiwary to secure a historic victory.

Such was the downfall for Uttarakhand that only wicketkeeper Shivam Khurana (25 not out) and Chandela could reach double digits. Mumbai’s medium pacer Mohit Awasthi (1/5) also played his part perfectly. Parkar was adjudged the player of the match.
