Vijay Zol and Kedar Jadhav took Maharashtra to 111 for two at lunch on Day Four of their Ranji Trophy 2013-14 quarter-final against Mumbai at Wankhede Stadium. Maharashtra are chasing 252 and are in a good situation as they eye a huge victory over their rivals Mumbai.
Starting the day on 28 for one, Maharashtra got into trouble early when Harshad Khadiwale edged one from Zaheer Khan to the slips. The ball climbed to him from round the wicket and took his gloves as he tried to evade the ball.
Zol was dropped early by Kaustubh Pawar at covers and then the Maharashtra batsmen played cautiously before taking charge to all the bowlers. Zaheer shuffled his bowlers around, but couldn’t stop the batsmen from scoring. They also essayed a few boundaries and helped them cross 100 with ease.
Mumbai 402 and 129 lead Maharashtra 280 and 111 for 2 (Vijay Zol 37*, Kedar Jadhav 35*; Zaheer Khan 2 for 32) by 141 runs.
