Delhi declared their first innings at 260 for 9 on day two of their four-day final of the U-23 C K Nayudu tournament before restricting Mumbai to 105 for 4 in their second innings. Mumbai, who were bundled out for 230 in their first innings, thus have an overall lead of 75 runs with six wickets remaining in the second innings when the play resumes tomorrow at the Mumbai Cricket Association’s Bandra Kurla Complex ground.

On the opening day, Delhi pacer Simarjeet Singh had picked a six-wicket haul to skittle out Mumbai for a paltry 230 in their first innings. Delhi, who resumed their first innings at 140 for 1, had a middle order collapse and could manage only 260/9 declared on the board.

For the visitors, while keeper Anuj Rawat (87) top scored, another notable contribution came from opener Hiten Dalal (67). Shivank Vashisth (44 not out) frustrated the Mumbai bowlers to take his side post the 250-run-mark.

But all other batsmen, one-down Yash Sehrawat (16), Jonty Sidhu (13), Rajesh Sharma (0), Lalit Yadav (7), Dinesh Mor (0) went cheaply as Delhi failed to capitalise on the promising start given by their openers.

For Mumbai, pacer Sairaj Patil was the pick of the bowlers who returned with figures of 4 for 25. In their second innings, Mumbai were teetering at 105 for 4, with A Sardesai (37) and Mulani (9) at the crease.

Their skipper Jay Bista could not produce a fine show as he was dismissed for 8.
