Abdulla picked up three for 44 while Chavan returned figures of three for 45. There were two wickets for skipper Ajit Agarkar. Ambati Rayudu top-scored for Baroda with a knock of 52 while Aditya Waghmode made 42.

Despite getting a decent start with the openers -- Saurabh Wakaskar (31) and Aditya Reddy (38) -- putting on 61 runs, Baroda failed to chase down the target.

After Rayudu's dismissal to Abdulla, none of the Baroda players could contribute. Earlier, Mumbai relied on Shoaibh Shaikh (51) and the experienced Wasim Jaffer (42) to give them a platform.

Before his effort with ball, Abdulla contributed with the bat as well, scoring an invaluable 39-ball 43 and giving his team's total a semblance of respectability Abdulla struck two fours and as many sixes during his breezy knock, which proved to be the difference eventually.
