Mumbai: Jan 9, 2013

Multiple-time champions Mumbai assured themselves of a place in the Ranji Trophy’s last-four stage after bundling out Baroda for 271 before extending their lead to 545 runs on the fourth and penultimate day of their quarterfinal clash at Mumbai on Wednesday.

Even if the match ends in a draw on Thursday, Mumbai, who were 171/1 at stumps, will qualify for the next stage due to their huge first innings lead.

Baroda needed another 175 runs to avoid the follow on and trailed by 374 runs when their innings wrapped up nine minutes before the end of first session. The host skipper Ajit Agarkar decided against imposing the follow on.

First innings centurion Wasim Jaffer became the second player to accumulate more than 9,000 runs and is 97 runs behind former Mumbai player Amol Muzumdar (9,105 runs) in the overall tally.

He scored 33, striking two fours and two sixes, before being trapped LBW by Ambati Rayudu.

Opener Kaustubh Pawar (70) and one down batsman Hiken Shah (65) forged an unbeaten 123-run stand. Baroda skipper Yusuf Pathan seemed to be suffering from butter fingers, as he dropped Hiken Shah (his third dropped catch in the match) on 54. Pawar hit six fours and two sixes, while Shah struck six fours and a six.
