Maharashtra finished Day Three of their Ranji Trophy 2013-14 quarter-final against Mumbai at 28 for one. They are chasing 252 runs to win. Late in the day Zaheer Khan dismissed Chirag Khurana as play was called. Mumbai were bowled out for 129 after they had taken a 122-run lead.

Early on, Wasim Jaffer was dismissed for a duck and then Kaustubh Pawar was caught in the slips as they went into tea at 17 for two. The afternoon session started with Vineet Indulkar edging one from Anupam Sanklecha. Then, Abhishek Nayar was caught at second slip off the very first ball as Sankecha moved it away from him. Later, Samad Fallah had Aditya Tare chase a wide one and was caught at second slip.

Iqbal Abdulla and Suryakumar Yadav had a recovery as they put up 48, playing positively along the way. However, Abdulla’s aggressive streak got the better of him as he edged Shrikant Mundhe to the slips. Yadav was then trapped plumb in front to leave Mumbai at 88 for seven at tea.

Shardul Thakur continued to fight and essayed a few big strokes, but ultimately, Mumbai were bundled for 129.

Maharashtra then resumed their chase in cautious fashion with Harshad Khadiwale leading the way. Surprisingly, Khurana walked in to open the batting instead of Rohit Motwani.


Brief scores:

Mumbai 402 and 129 (Suryakumar Yadav 33, Shardul Thakur 33; Anupam Sanklecha 4 for 41, Shrikant Mundhe 2 for 13) lead Maharashtra 280 (Ankit Bawne 82, Kedar Jadhav 51; Shardul Thakur 6 for 86) and 28 for 1 by 224 runs.
