MAHARASHTRA vs KARNATAKA, Indore

Karnataka won by 8 wkts

Karnataka - 159/2 (18.3 Ovs)
Maharashtra - 155/4 (20 Ovs)

The trophy has been handed to Manish Pandey, and the celebrations follow. Lot of happy faces in the Karnataka camp and it's been a richly deserved one for them. They now have won 14 T20 games on the trot which is a record for most number of wins by an Indian domestic team. KKR too have 14 and Karnataka have to win their next T20 game to better that record. We hope you enjoyed the coverage and appreciate your feedback and comments throughout the season. Curtains down on India's domestic cricket 2018-19. Until next time, goodbye and good night!!

"If I have to sum up the whole tournament, some of the guys stood up to their reputation and the younger guys have done really well especially Kadam and Cariappa. A lot of players play the IPL and I don't have to talk to them a lot and it made easier for me. I love to lead a side especially for the boys in Karnataka. I played for Karnataka for a long time now, and I think it was not difficult for me to put that captaincy shoes on. Everyone helped me and glad to be a captain. We always have something to learn from all tournaments. What has happened has happened. It was a close game in the Ranji semi finals and we keep looking for the next tournaments and do well as a team. Not only in the T20s, in the Ranji Trophy as well we had a lot of youngsters coming in and they did fairly well. So, I think it was a conscious effort from our side and the management to get the younger guys so that we give them a platform for the coming years to help us win many more tournaments," a thoroughly elated Karnataka skipper Manish Pandey.

"I have not been getting as many runs during the league stages and I'm happy I delivered in the knock-out. The dressing room talk is all about winning tournaments and I'm happy that we ended on a high. Looking forward to the IPL and I'm happy I got some runs and I can take this confidence to the IPL," the ever-cheerful Mayank Agarwal after receiving the Man of the Match award.

"I thought we had a good total, but Karnataka batted well. A couple of more wickets at the front would have changed the game. All in all, I want to congratulate the Maharashtra team for making it to the final. We didn't have a great Ranji season but I'm happy we did well in limited overs. The credit goes to the boys. It's an honour to lead the boys, they are a great bunch of people and I had a good experience with the captaincy. Winning the trophy would have been the icing on the cake, but we did well and can be proud of what we have achieved," a mildly disappointed Maharashtra skipper, Rahul Tripathi.

20:49 local: Mayank Agarwal was on 5 when he was dropped by Vishal Gite. Karnataka would have been 27/2 had that catch been taken. Wasn't to be. Make no mistake, Karnataka have been absolutely brilliant and the same has been illustrated by the red-hot batting from their opener Rohan Kadam who set the platform with a scintillating knock at the top. Kadam notched up 60 off 39 balls and became the season's highest run-getter of the tournament. Mayank hasn't had a great outing with the bat thus far, but he seemed to have saved his best for the last and boy, he's such a joy to watch when in full-flow. The required run rate was always under control and Maharashtra's sloppy fielding and below-par bowling made it much more easier for Karnataka.

18.3 Divyang Himganekar to Agarwal, FOUR, sliced away behind point and that's it. Karnataka are the champions of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2019. It's the first time they have won this trophy and the pair of Mayank Agarwal and Karun Nair are absolutely pumped. Manish Pandey is a happy man in the dressing room. The rest of the Karnataka team hustle onto the centre and the celebrations are up and running in Indore....

18.2 Divyang Himganekar to Agarwal, no run, very full outside off, Mayank jams the drive to cover-point and looks for a non-existent single, Nair sends him back instantly

18.1 Divyang Himganekar to Agarwal, no run, full and wide, Mayank steers the drive straight to backward point

Divyang Himganekar [3.0-0-17-1] is back into the attack

17.6 Azim Kazi to Agarwal, 1 run, scores level. Gets there with a drive to sweeper cover

17.5 Azim Kazi to Agarwal, no run, fired in on off, Mayank hangs back and defends it with a straight blade

17.4 Azim Kazi to Nair, 1 run, slower and sliding in with the arm, Karun Nair slots the drive in the gap wide of cover

17.3 Azim Kazi to Nair, no run, full on off-stump, Karun Nair punch-drives straight to short cover

17.2 Azim Kazi to Agarwal, 1 run, drifting in on off, Mayank goes on the back foot and cuts to deep cover

17.1 Azim Kazi to Agarwal, no run, flat outside off, Mayank slices the cut and nearly hands a catch to backward point, falls just short of the fielder

Azim Kazi [1.0-0-10-0] is back into the attack

16.6 Bachhav to Nair, no run, classic forward defence, maybe he wants Mayank Agarwal to hit the winning runs

16.5 Bachhav to Agarwal, 1 run, looks to flick off his pads and gets a thick leading edge down to third man

16.4 Bachhav to Agarwal, FOUR, flat outside off, Mayank sits deep inside the crease and cuts it through point with impeccable timing

16.3 Bachhav to Agarwal, no run, appeal for stumping but Mayank's well in. Got beaten by the spin outside off and dragged his back foot out of the crease momentarily, the keeper was quick with his glovework but Mayank had his back foot grounded just in the nick of time
