Fans gathered inside the M Chinnaswamy Stadium to watch Day Five of the Ranji Trophy final, started chanting RCB, RCB after Madhya Pradesh beat Mumbai by six wickets to seal their first Ranji Trophy title on Sunday.
The crowd cheered on after IPL team RCB’s batsman Rajat Patidar hit the winning runs.
The video was posted by the BCCI’s official Twitter handle.
"WHAT.A.WIN! Madhya Pradesh beat Mumbai by 6 wickets & clinch their maiden #RanjiTrophy title," BCCI captioned the video.
The historic win was fashioned by centuries from Yash Dubey, Shubham Sharma and Patidar in the first innings and after Mumbai were all out for 269 in their second innings on day five, Sharma and Patidar helped them chase down 108 in 29.5 overs to make Sunday an unforgettable day for Madhya Pradesh.
The victory is also another feather in the cap of Chandrakant Pandit's glittering coaching CV in domestic cricket, after previously guiding Mumbai (thrice) and Vidarbha (twice) to Ranji Trophy titles. Co-incidentally, Pandit had missed winning the Ranji Trophy as the Madhya Pradesh captain in 1998-99 at this very venue and 23 years later, the stars aligned for him to win the trophy as its head coach.
