Mumbai cricket team created a world record for the highest margin of victory in a first-class match by beating Uttarakhand by 725 runs in the Ranji Trophy 2021-22 quarterfinal. They will be up against an Uttar Pradesh side that beat Karnataka by five wickets in a thrilling low-scoring encounter.
Mumbai will be without their experienced gloveman Aditya Tare who is ruled out of the tournament due to a finger injury. Backup wicket-keeper Hardik Tamore is expected to keep wickets for the 41-time champions.

Mumbai vs Uttar Pradesh top picks
Mumbai: Sarfaraz Khan is a no-brainer for this fixture. The 24-year-old is currently in the form of his life with 704 runs across five innings at an average of 141 in the ongoing Ranji Trophy season. Sarfaraz has three 150-plus scores in the tournament and will look to add more runs to his tally in the all-important match against UP.
Uttar Pradesh: Saurabh Kumar will be a top pick from UP. The left-arm spinner picked seven wickets in the quarterfinal match against Karnataka and will hold the key against an in-form batting lineup of Mumbai.
Mumbai vs Uttar Pradesh Ranji Trophy 2021-22 prediction
Mumbai are favourites to win this fixture given the all-round depth of their squad.
However, Uttar Pradesh are no pushovers and can very well spring a surprise by beating the 41-time Ranji Trophy champions.
