A 92-year-old record for the largest victory margin in first-class cricket was obliterated on Thursday when Mumbai defeated Uttarakhand by 725 runs in Alur.

Set a notional target of 795 on the fourth day, Uttarakhand folded for just 69 in the first session, as New South Wales’ demolition of Queensland by 685 runs in a 1929-30 Sheffield Shield contest went by the wayside.

Although there have been hundreds of examples of 10-wicket and innings victories in first-class history, the efforts of a Mumbai team captained by India international Prithvi Shaw ensured the bar has been raised in terms of wins by runs.
