On the first day of the four-day Ranji Trophy Elite Group B match at Bandra Sharad Pawar Cricket Academy in Hyderabad on Tuesday.
Mumbai’s batting power was on display, with the team’s exciting Yashasvi Jaiswal and captain Ajinkya Rahane scoring centuries to help the team post an impressive 457 for three at the end of play.
Hyderabad had defeated Mumbai in the previous match.
Hyderabad could have hoped for something more dramatic when opener Prithvi Shaw (19) was caught behind in the fourth over of the day after being surprised by pacer Karthikeya Kak’s extra bounce and late movement.
The fact that Mumbai scored 169 runs for one at lunch in 31 overs may have been done with the intention of demoralizing the opposition by scoring quickly and without taking any risks on a surface that didn’t bother the batters in any way.
When left-arm spinner M. Shashank trapped Suryakumar lbw in the third over after lunch, he stretched fully forward but missed the ball’s line. As a result, Suryakumar missed out on a century.
As a result, Yashasvi was joined by Mumbai captain Ajinkya Rahane (139 batting, 190 assisting, 18×4, 2×6), and the two of them combined to score 206 runs for Hyderabad’s third wicket in 229 balls.
