The session started with Vineet Indulkar edging one from Anupam Sanklecha. Then, Abhishek Nayar was caught at second slip off the very first ball as Sankecha moved it away from him. Later, Samad Fallah had Aditya Tare chased a wide one and was caught at second slip.

 

Iqbal Abdulla and Suryakumar Yadav started a recovery as they put up 48, playing positively along the way. However, Abdulla’s aggressive streak got the better of him as he edged Shrikant Mundhe to the slips. Yadav was then trapped plumb in front to leave Mumbai at 88 for seven at tea.
