At Ongole: Mumbai have recovered well after their brief collapse in the morning session of Day One. After bundling out for 332, Mumbai removed Andhra openers for 23.

Mumbai were 20 for 2 at one stage. Jay Bista and Shreyas Iyer were back in the pavilion. Suryakumar Yadav gave his all to survive Andhra’s spectacular bowling, but Bandaru Ayyappa had him caught behind. At the crease, fighting against all odds, was the 18-year-old Prithvi Shaw. He scored his fifth First-Class century. Captain Aditya Tare pushed himself down the order, letting Siddhesh Lad take centre stage. Along with Prithvi, Lad added 125 for the fourth wicket.

After ending Day One at 248 for 6, Abhishek Nayar (35) and Dhawal Kulkarni (50) provided late blitz, taking Mumbai to a challenging score.

Brief scores:

Mumbai 332 (Prithvi Shaw 114; Bandaru Ayyappa 4 for 110) lead Andhra 74 for 2 (Hanuma Vihari 29*; Abhishek Nayar 1 for 19) by 258 runs.

At Vadodara: Baroda annihilated Odisha further on Day Two, slamming 503 runs.

Openers Kedar Devdhar and Aditya Waghmode stitched up 152 runs for the opening stand. Although Waghmode departed after scoring a fine half-century, Devdhar accumulated his 7th First-Class hundred.

There were two more centurions:  Vishnu Solanki and Ninad Rathva. Amidst the rampage, Basant Mohanty ended with a five-wicket haul.

In reply, Odisha lost two wickets for 64. Given the situation, Baroda are well on course for a victory.

Baroda 503 (Kedar Devdhar 104, Vishnu Solanki 109, Ninad Rathva 115; Biplab Basant Mohanty 5 for 85) lead Odisha 64 for 2 (Natraj Behera 24*; Vishnu Solanki 1 for 6) by 439 runs.

In reply, opener Narayan Jagadeesan took Tamil Nadu to 191 for 6. He is unbeaten on 94*. Ishwar Pandey and Puneet Datey took 3 wickets each.
