Mumbai: Feb 6, 2013

Rest of India took stumps on Day One of the Irani Trophy against Mumbai at a formidable 330 for five.

Suresh Raina (36 not out) and captain Harbhajan Singh were at the crease after Rohit Sharma and Dhawal Kulkarni accounted for the wickets of Ambati Rayadu (51) and Wriddhiman Saha (17).

Mumbai skipper Abhishek Nayar got the prize scalp of Murali Viyay (116) right after Tea as Rest of India reached 302 for three in 80 overs on Day One of the Irani Trophy against Mumbai.

Vijay was bowled by Nayar, who has bowled well to pick up his second wicket of the day.

Nayar accounted for the wicket of Manoj Tiwary as Rest of India reached 228 for two in 60 overs. Ambati Rayadu joined Murali Vijay (113 not out) in the middle as the pitch eased out at the Wankhede.

Murali Vijay smashed his way to a brilliant century against Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium in the Irani Trophy as Rest of India reached 184 for one in 50 overs.

Vijay (100 not out off 172 balls, 15×4) got there with an upper-cut six and a four to the long-on fence as he knocked on the doors of the selectors.

Rest of India lost left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan (63) after a century stand with Murali Vijay at the top of the order.

In 40 overs, RoI had reached 146 for one with Vijay still going strong. The Tamil Nadu batsman looks set for a big score and is batting on 77 off 140 balls, including 13 boundaries. He was joined by Bengal batsman Manoj Tiwary in the middle.

Rest of India reached 130 for no loss at Lunch on Day One of the Irani Trophy against Mumbai, with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay both scoring half-centuries.

Dhawan and Vijay consolidated their solid start and continued to thwart Mumbai’s bowlers, taking Rest of India to 114 for no loss in 30 overs.

Mumbai captain Abhishek Nayar had elected to bowl first thinking the pitch at the Wankhede would give a lot of help to his seam bowlers.

But Nayar’s wishes were thwarted by the RoI openers as they steadily went about their innings.

RoI reached 34 for no loss in 10 overs with Dhawan unbeaten on 18 and Vijay on 14.

Shardul Thakur opened the bowling for the hosts along with Dhawal Kulkarni, in the absence of injured skipper Ajit Agarkar.

A buoyant Mumbai take on the Rest of India in the Irani Trophy at the Wankhede Stadium today after winning the Ranji Trophy for the 40th time last month.

Mumbai will hope to carry forward their form into the tie against the best among the rest.

Captaining the side is 29-year-old all-rounder Abhishek Nayar, who was the third-highest run scorer in the Ranji Trophy. He scored 966 runs and also took 19 wickets to cap a great all-round performance.

Nayar was given the reins of captaincy after skipper Ajit Agarkar pulled out from an injury sustained during the Ranji Trophy final against Saurashtra.

There was a surprise change in captains for Rest of India too as Virender Sehwag pulled out of the tie due to a reported stomach bug. Harbhajan Singh will lead the side instead.

Shami Ahmed, who was expected to be in the playing 11, too isn’t there in the team.

Wednesday’s match will be the 51st Irani Cup fixture and the second of the 2012-13 season. The Rest of India beat Rajasthan, the 2011-12 Ranji Trophy winners, in the previous game.
 
Rest of India have won the Irani Cup 24 times and have shared the trophy twice. They shared it with Mumbai in 1965-66, in what was the first Irani Cup game to be played at the start of the season. There was no game in 1979-80 but the Rest of India were declared joint winners with Delhi, the 1978-79 Ranji Trophy winners.
 
Mumbai have won the title 14 times.
