Our reporter Amol Karhadkar from Mumbai updates:  Shreyas Iyer has got off to a brisk start, a flurry boundaries taking Mumbai to 72/2 at the drinks break.

Our reporter Amol Karhadkar from Mumbai updates: Hardik doesn't have to wait too long for a wicket, thanks to an error of judgment by the debutante left-hander. In the seventh over, Hardik pitches one on the fourth stump marginally short of good length and Auti shoulders it but the ball rises a little and kisses perhaps the glove en route the keeper.

Mumbai vs Baroda: Hardik Pandya strikes. He sends Vikrant Auti for 12 (19 balls), caught by Mitesh Patel, and Mumbai loses its first wicket for 25.

Our reporter Amol Karhadkar from Mumbai updates:  Hardik Pandya it seems is more than eager to make a point to national selectors, including Sarandeep Singh who is watching from the president's box. Kedar Devdhar didn't hesitate in putting a depleted Mumbai — with heaps of changes — in to bat. Guess who bowled the first over on a greenish top? Hardik.
