Ranji Trophy: Mumbai fightback against Rajasthan

Rajasthan’s starless batting line-up continued to pile on the misery for Mumbai, their bottom six contributing 206 runs in a mammoth total of 530, as the Ranji Trophy champions went from strength to strength at the Brabourne Stadium. In reply, Mumbai, who recovered from a horrible start, with the help of century from Rohit Sharma(100) and unbeaten 110* from Nayar brings mumbai back in game.
Rohit sharma was dropped twice, once by Ashok Menaria in the covers and then by Hrishikesh Kanitkar at first slip, leaving pacer Deepak Chahar frustrated. Sharma, who cheated fate while on 2 and 10, rubbed the proverbial salt into Chahar’s wounds by racing from 26 to 42, courtesy four boundaries in one over. All this happened after Pankaj Singh (2/40) sent back openers Kaustubh Pawar (0) and Wasim Jaffer (17; 23 balls, 4x4) inside the first half hour. Mumbai on days 3 with 291/3 (56.0 overs), trail by 239 runs with 7 wickets remaining in the 1st innings will lead test match to draw.
