Mumbai resumed the game on the final day from their overnight score of 113/2 however he failed to put MP on the backfoot after Armaan Jaffer was removed on 37 runs. The Mumbai batters failed to form a partnership. Suved Parkar was the top-scorer from the side with 51 runs and no other batter could reach fifty.
Yashasvi Jaiswal also failed when his side needed him the most. Coming out to bat at number 6 in the second innings, Jaiswal could score only 1 run.
