Batting first Maharashtra put on a total of 330/5 in 50 overs, thanks to swashbuckling batting from Captain Gaikwad. Gaikwad smoked 220* from 159 balls with 10 boundaries and 16 massive sixes. UP could only score 272/10 in 47.4 overs and lost the match by 58 runs. Aryan Juyal batted brilliantly for his 159 off 143 deliveries but no once else could stay on the pitch for a long time with him.
