Mumbai: Feb 9, 2013

Mumbai got the wicket of Manoj Tiwary (69), albeit controversially, after the Bengal lad was given out caught by umpire Subrat Das at leg slip going for a sweep.

Tiwary was shocked at the decision and seemed to suggest the ball had hit is forearm and not the bat.

The Rest of India reached 231 for four in 83 overs with Ambati Rayudu (80 not out) and Suresh Raina (13 not out) at the crease.

Earlier Mumbai took two wickets and maintained the pressure on Rest of India in the first session of Day Four of the Irani Cup. The Rest were 92 for three at lunch with Tiwary (11 not out)  and  Rayudu (14 not out) at the crease.

Murali Vijay (35) and night watchman S Sreesanth (18) built on their overnight partnership and took the Rest’s score to 60 in the first hour without further damage.

However, on the last ball of the 18th over, Sreesanth, who had batted well for his 18, was unfortunate to be run out after a fantastic direct hit from Rohit Sharma at point from a tough angle.

Immediately in the next over, Vijay, on 32, was dropped in fourth slip by substitute Kaustubh Pawar, who was on the field for Sachin Tendulkar.

Soon after, in the first over after drinks, Tiwary was dropped on one by keeper Aditya Tare off an inside edge. Dhawal Kulkarni was the bowler on both occasions.

Tamil Nadu batsman Vijay, who is among the many players vying for an India spot and scored a century in the first innings, did not make the most out of his extra life in the second. In the 24th over, he played a loose shot off Shardul Thakur’s length delivery straight to Rohit at cover. At 67 for three, the Rest were in a precarious position.

Tiwary was then joined by Hyderabad’s Ambati Rayudu in the middle. The duo resisted the sustained pressure from the Mumbai seamers till lunch and went into the break with the Rest’s lead at 209 runs.

Brief Scores: Rest of India 526 and 231 for 4 (Ambati Rayudu 80*, Murali Vijay 35; Shardul Thakur 1 for 21) lead Mumbai 409 (Sachin Tendulkar 140*, Wasim Jaffer 80, Ajinkya Rahane 83; Harbhajan Singh 3 for 64, Abhimanyu Mithun 2 for 73) by 347 runs.
