Mumbai: Jan 26, 2013

Aarpit Vasavada and Kamlesh Makwana fell after a solid 64-run stand for the sixth wicket, as Saurashtra reached 117 for seven in the first innings of the Ranji Trophy final. Both the batsmen were dismissed by Mumbai’s Abhishek Nayar.

Vasavada fell after scoring a fluent 55 off 146 balls, while Makwana scored an 83-ball 26 studded with four boundaries.

Before their dismissal, Vasavada and Makwana stitched a strong 64-run stand in 24.5 overs to stabilise Saurashtra, reaching 109 for five from 54 overs in the second session’s play.

Vasavada struck a crucial half-century, scoring 50 not out off 139 balls with the help of eight boundaries to provide Saurashtra innings some strength after they suffered a batting collapse earlier in the day.

Earlier, Saurashtra began on a positive note in the second session’s play against Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy final, reaching 75 for five from 42 overs in the first innings.

Before Lunch, Saurashtra slipped to 45 for four losing the middle-order mainstay Sitanshu Kotak and Sheldon Jackson during the first session’s play at the Wankhede Stadium.

Brief Scores: Saurashtra 117 for 7 (Aarpit Vasavada 55, Kamlesh Makwana 26; Dhawal Kulkarni 3 for 17, Vishal Dhabholkar 2 for 12, Abhishek Nayar 2 for 22) vs Mumbai.
