Ranji Trophy: Mumbai under the hammer against Services

Jan 16 2013, 7:18am CST | by

New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) Record Ranji Trophy champions Mumbai were put under tremendous pressure by Services, who restricted the visitors to 199 for six at stumps on day one of their semifinal encounter here Wednesday.

New Delhi, Jan 16 — Record Ranji Trophy champions Mumbai were put under tremendous pressure by Services, who restricted the visitors to 199 for six at stumps on day one of their semifinal encounter here Wednesday.

Sachin Tendulkar (56) and Abhishek Nayar (70) were the only silver linings for Mumbai in an otherwise dismal batting performance at the Air Force ground, Palam.

Suraj Yadav (2/42) was once again the star for Services with the ball, giving his team the early breakthroughs. He was well supported by medium pacer Shadab Nazar (2/45), who took the all important wicket of Mumbai's top scorer this season, Nayar.

Electing to bat on a hazy morning, Mumbai lost both their openers in the space of an over. Yadav trapped Kaustabh Pawar (15) plumb in front of the stumps in the ninth over while Nishan Singh removed the dangerous Wasim Jaffer (3) six balls later.

Hiken Shah (0), who has been a revelation for Mumbai this season, was sent back to the pavilion without disturbing the scorers.

With Mumbai reeling at 23 for three, the stage was set for Tendulkar to bail out his team. The batting maestro didn't disappoint his fans, mostly school kids, who had flocked the ground to see the batting great in action.

Tendulkar struck 10 fours and a six in his short but fluent innings. He put on a 81-run stand with Nayar for the fourth wicket before falling victim to spinner Avishek Sinha.

Nayar added another 65 runs for the fifth wicket with Aditya Tare (26 batting) befor being dismissed.

Captain Ajit Agarkar (17 batting) and Tare were left to battle it out for the rest of the day.

Meanwhile, at Rajkot, half-centuries from Shitanshu Kotak (54), Jaydev Shah (87) and Sheldon Jackson (70 batting) helped Saurashtra reach 274 for five against Punjab on the first day of the other semi-final.

Siddharth Kaul was the pick of the Punjab bowlers with figures of 64 for two.

Brief Scores:

At Rajkot: Saurashtra 274/5 in 87 overs (Shitanshu Kotak 54, Jaydev Shah 87, Sheldon Jackson 70 batting; Siddharth Kaul 2/64, Harbhajan Singh 1/59) vs Punjab

At Delhi: Mumbai 199 for six in 78 overs (Sachin Tendulkar 56, Abhishek Nayar 70; Suraj Yadav 2/42, Shadab Nazar 2/45) vs Services

As more than 1.2 billion Indians celebrated their nation’s 68th Independence Day, 11 others haplessly surrendered to their erstwhile rulers on the cricket field. August 15, 2014, could now well be remembered as the day India’s hopes of being buoyed by their new generation of cricketers came crashing down and plunged deep into the ocean.

Kumar Sangakkara’s latest double-hundred against Pakistan in the first Test at Galle has only served to reaffirm the Sri Lankan’s status as one of the game’s all-time great batsmen. The erudite law graduate was finally out just before tea on Day 4 for 221, having added 119 more runs to his overnight score, in the process edging past West Indian legend Brian Lara with what was the 10th double-century of his Test career.

India Must Consider Dropping Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli After Test Failures

India need more than a miracle to save the third Test against England at Southampton, with the visitors staring down the barrel at 112 for four at the end of Day 4, chasing England's distant target of 445. Miracles are often talked about in the game of cricket, with its rich and eventful history abundant with instances that can be so classified. However, miracles should not be expected to be showered upon you with a swish of a wand; they have to be earned. After four excruciating days o ...
