Mumbai started off on a bad note as they lost 3 big wickets in quick successions. Mumbai lost their openers Akhil Herwadkar and Jay Bista in quick successions. First, it was Bista who departed for a duck and then it was Herwadkar who departed when team had put up just 5 runs on the board. Wicket-keeper batsman and the Mumbai skipper Aditya Tare tried to handle the situation along with Shreyas Iyer who walked in at No. 3 for Mumbai.

But Tare was dismissed by Karan Patel when the team had posted just 58 runs on the board. Iyer is still batting at 27 runs from 49 balls and his presence will be very important for Mumbai on Day Three as they still have a big total to surpass. At stumps, Dhawal Kulkarni is at the crease batting on Zero along with Iyer.
