After winning the toss and choosing to bat, Maharashtra lost Harshad Khadiwale early on Day One of the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 final. The Maharashtra batsmen showed patience in the centre and picked their opportunities to score. However, Vinay Kumar held his line consistently and got the reward by trapping Khadiwale leg-before with the score on 24. After the first hour, Maharashtra are 35 for one.

The Maharashtra openers, Khadiwale and Chirag Khurana showed good patience early on and were taking their time. Some of the highlights in the morning included two straight drives by Khadiwale, which, which laced the park for four. Abhimanyu Mithun struggled when compared to his partner as he started off with two no-balls, the first one being the biggest.

Khurana’s wristwork was impressive in the morning as he punished the lose deliveries off his pads. Even when Karnataka had placed a mid-wicket and a square-leg, he managed to put it through the gap.

It was interesting to see Vinay Kumar gets some bounce off the wicket. He pushed Khadiwale onto the backfoot with a few deliveries that climbed off a length. And, ultimately, he was rewarded when he pitched it up a little and Khadiwale was rooted to the crease. There was a bit of a suspense over the no-ball, but replays confirmed that Vinay Kumar had stayed within the lines.

Sreenath Aravind then changed ends and replaced Vinay Kumar. Off his first ball from the new end, he had Khurana edging one, but Manish Pandey dived across from second slip and could not hold on to it.

Brief scores:

Maharashtra 35 for 1 (Harshad Khadiwale 15, Chirag Khurana 14*; R Vinay Kumar 1 for 9) vs Karnataka.
