For Delhi, Dhruv Shorey and Nitish Rana both scored half-centuries. Akshay Wakhare, Aditya Sarwate, Rajneesh Gurbani and Siddhesh Neral picked up four, three, two and one wickets for Vidarbha to restrict Delhi to 280.

Vidarbha achieved the target in just five overs as Wasim Jaffer finished the match in style by hitting a boundary. Rajneesh, who picked up six wickets in the first innings and became the second bowler to get a hat-trick in a Ranji final was awarded the Man of the Match award.
