Mumbai: Feb 10, 2013

Mumbai batsman Wasim Jaffer remained not out on 74 as tea was taken on Day Five of the Irani Trophy with the hosts at 119 for three, still trailing Rest of India by 388 runs.

With a result not possible, the two sides have to play a minimum of eight more overs before the match can be called off.

Rest of India picked up two quick wickets, those of Ajinkya Rahane (25) and Rohit Sharma (1), to peg Mumbai back after lunch.

Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh got his second wicket of the day when he dismissed Rahane off a bat-pad catch at short leg, before Rohit played his second poor shot of the match as he mistimed a big heave off Pragyan Ojha’s bowling to find Abhimanyu Mithun at mid-off.

Mumbai lost wicketkeeper-batsman Aditya Tare (11) to a superb catch at short leg by Dhawal Kulkarni immediately after lunch.

Rest of India set a massive 507-run target for Mumbai to win the Irani Trophy after declaring their second innings at 389 for five before lunch.

The Rest lost the wicket of Suresh Raina (71) in the morning session as they took the first drinks break at 378 for five. Raina charged down the ground trying to hit spinner Vishal Dabholkar over the top, but found the leading edge that carried to Ajinkya Rahane at short third-man.

Rayudu was joined in the middle by Wriddhiman Saha and the duo scored at a brisk rate of a run-a-ball before declaring.

Brief Scores: Rest of India 526 and 389 for 5 dec. (Ambati Rayudu 147*, Suresh Raina 71, Manoj Tiwary 69; Vishal Dabholkar 2 for 91) lead Mumbai 409 (Sachin Tendulkar 140*, Wasim Jaffer 80, Ajinkya Rahane 83; Harbhajan Singh 3 for 64, Abhimanyu Mithun 2 for 73) and 119 for 3 (Wasim Jaffer 74*, Harbhajan Singh 2 for 38) by 388 runs.
