After Abhimanyu Mithun became the first Karnataka bowler to claim a hat-trick in Vijay Hazare Trophy, Karnataka went on to win the title for the fourth time in the final of the prestigious tournament. 

Alongside, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal shared an unbeaten 114-run partnership after Mithun took a hat-trick and completed a 5-wicket haul. Owing to the players' exceptional performance, Karnataka defeated Tamil Nadu to lift the Vijay Hazare Trophy for the fourth time.

Karnataka were cruising towards a 253-run target before rain interrupted play. The final was eventually called off when Karnataka were 146/1 in 23 overs. With Rahul batting on 52 and Agarwal unbeaten on 69, Karanataka were declared winners by VJD method. Karnataka were well ahead of the VJD par-score, which was 87.

Meanwhile, just like rains played spoilsport for Tamil Nadu, Mumbai too faced the same issue during their quarter-final fixture against Chhatisgarh. Chasing a revised target of 195 from 39 overs, Mumbai were cruising at 95 for no loss in 11.3 overs with young Yashasvi Jaiswal batting on 60 (38 balls, 5 fours, 5 sixes) and Aditya Tare on 31.

However, the rains arrived and the match was abandoned, ending Mumbai's topsy-turvy campaign. As per rules, Mumbai needed to bat a minimum of 20 overs to get a result in this game. But as the game was abandoned, Chhattisgarh qualified.
