Mumbai: Jan 27, 2013

On a day of records, Wasim Jaffer scored a sublime ton to take Mumbai to 181 for three at Tea on Day Two of the Ranji Trophy final against Saurashtra at the Wankhede stadium.

Doing so, Jaffer (108 not out) went past Amol Muzumdar‘s tally (9,105) of most runs scored by a batsman in the Ranji Trophy.

However, Jaffer enjoyed three lives — two umpiring errors and one by the wicketkeeper.

Sachin Tendulkar (22) too was involved in a bit of history he would not have particularly liked. The master batsman was run out for the first time in the Ranji Trophy.

After a session where 100 runs were scored for the loss of Tendulkar and Aditya Tare (3), Mumbai went into tea 33 runs ahead with seven wickets in hand.

Earlier in the day, openers Jaffer and Kaustubh Pawar (21) took the hosts to 88 for one at Lunch.

Responding to Saurashtra’s total of 148, the opening pair put Mumbai in a commanding position with a partnership of 75. Both batsmen were in no hurry to score runs and patiently went about their innings before Pawar fell to Siddharth Trivedi for a 90-ball 21.

Mumbai will aim to put up a huge first innings total.

Brief Scores: Saurashtra 148 (Aarpit Vasavada 55, Kamlesh Makvana 26; Dhaval Kulkarni 4 for 24) trail Mumbai 188 for 3 (Wasim Jaffer 108*) by 33 runs.
