Mumbai: Feb 8, 2013

After bowling out Mumbai for 409 on Day Three, Rest of India took stumps at 27 for one after Abhishek Nayar took a spectacular catch to send Shikhar Dhawan back for a duck.

Rest of India now lead Mumbai by 144 runs.

Earlier, Rest of India bowled out Mumbai for 409 runs and took great strides towards winning the Irani Cup after taking a vital 117-run first-innings lead.

Sachin Tendulkar remained not out on 140 while the rest of the team collapsed around him. Rest of India skipper Harbhajan Singh took three wickets for 64 runs, while Abhimanyu Mithun and Ishwar Pandey took two each.

The Mumbai bowlers will now have to bowl out of their skin to make a match out of this. They will get to have a go at the Rest’s batsmen for a few over before stumps today.

Rest of India picked the wicket of Ankeet Chavan soon after tea as Mumbai reached 398 for seven in 110 overs, still trailing by 128 runs.

Tendulkar is batting confidently on 137, while Dhawal Kulkarni (8 not out) is providing good company.

Earlier, Mumbai took tea on Day Three of the Irani Cup at 350 for six, still 176 runs behind Rest of India.

Tendulkar (108 not out) and Ankeet Chavan (40 not out) have forged a vital 93-run seventh-wicket partnership for the hosts, but still have a long way to go if they are to have any hopes of winning the match.

Tendulkar scored his 81st First-Class ton at the Wankhede Stadium, equaling Sunil Gavaskar‘s tally, as Mumbai reached 337 for six chasing Rest of India’s 526.

Tendulkar, unbeaten on 105, has scored more than 25,000 runs in 303 First-Class cricket.

Mumbai lost the wicket of captain Abhishek Nayar (1) in the first over after lunch, after which Tendulkar and Chavan steadied the innings.

Tendulkar reached his half-century for Mumbai at the Wankhede amidst loud cheers.

Meanwhile, Mumbai took lunch at 255 for five after losing the wickets of Ajinkya Rahane (83) and Rohit Sharma (0) in quick succession.

Mumbai lost the wicket of Rahane to a dubious call by umpire Subrata Das after the youngster tried to sweep Harbhajan from outside off.

Replays showed that the ball, apart from pitching outside off, clearly took the inside edge before hitting the pads.

Mumbai took drinks in the first session of Day Three of the Irani Trophy at 195 for three, still 331 runs behind Rest of India’s 526. 

Night watchman Shardul Thakur (4) was the only wicket to fall in the first hour of play. He was gone on the first ball he faced after edging Ishwar Pandey to gully.

 

Mumbai batsmen Wasim Jaffer and Rahane set up an interesting next three days of the Irani Trophy against Rest of India after taking their team to 155 for two at stumps on Day Two, in reply to RoI’s 526 all-out.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Aditya Tare fell early, but Jaffer and Rahane shook off the early wobble and took their side to safety.

The duo, who usually open for Mumbai, provided a right headache for the watching selectors after RoI’s openers Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay too were among the runs.

With a tough series against Australia coming up, and an out of form first-choice pairing of Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, it will be interesting to see who turns up to open India’s batting in the first Test at Chennai.

Jaffer, who has represented India in 31 Tests, was unbeaten on 74 off 118 balls. His knock included eight fours and a towering six over long-on off Pragyan Ojha.

Rahane, meanwhile, provided able company to the 34-year-old and scored an unbeaten 55 off 108 deliveries. Nightwatchman Shardul Thakur accompanied Rahane to stumps after Jaffer’s late dismissal.

Brief Scores: Rest of India 526 & 27 for one lead Mumbai 409 (Sachin Tendulkar 140*,Wasim Jaffer 80, Ajinkya Rahane 83; Harbhajan Singh 3 for 64) by 144 runs.
