Indore [India], Jan 1 (ANI): Vidarbha scripted history on Monday by lifting the Ranji Trophy title for the first time following their thumping nine-wicket win over Delhi here at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
Chasing a lowly target of 29 runs to win on the fourth day of the final match, opener Faiz Fazal was dismissed cheaply for two runs off Kulwant Khejroliya's delivery.

For Delhi, Navdeep Saini was the pick of the bowlers as he grabbed five wickets while Akash Sudan and Kulwant Khejroliya also took two wickets each. Nitish Rana also chipped in with a wicket.
Rajneesh Gurbani was adjudged man-of-the-match as he finished with excellent figures of 6-59 and 2-92 in the two innings respectively.
