A fighting partnership between Ankit Bawne and Kedar Jadhav helped Maharashtra recover in the second session against Mumbai on Day Two of the Ranji Trophy quarter-final at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. The visitors are 122 for three at tea with Bawne on 60 and Jadhav batting on 40.

Mumbai folded up for 402 when lunch was taken with Iqbal Abdulla unbeaten on 49. With less breeze during the afternoon, it didn’t look as though the Mumbai pacers will get the ball to move drastically but a fine bowling by Shardul Thakur and Zaheer Khan saw Maharashtra’s in-form batsmen falling in quick succession.

Thakur set up skipper Rohit Motwani by pitching consistently short before an accurate yorker saw Motwani dismissed leg-before. Their top run-scorer Harshad Kahdiwale too didn’t last long edging a short ball to slips. Then came the turn of young Vijay Zol. Fresh from the Asia Cup win, the left-hander was done in by an incoming delivery from Zaheer Khan which brushed the top of the bail and was out bowled.

From thereon, Bawne and Jadhav survived nervous moments to hold on to their wicket.

Brief Scores:

Mumbai 402 (Suryakumar Yadav 120, Vinit Indulkar 82, Iqbal Abdulla 49*; Samad Fallah 4 for 71, Anupam Sanklecha 3 for 55) lead Maharashtra 122 for 3  (Ankit Bawne 60*, Kedar Jadhav 40*; Shardul Thakur 2 for 37) by 280 runs.
