The TN bowlers fought back after Ruturaj and got two quick wickets by the first hour. However, Jadhav and skipper Bawane have rebuilt the innings and laid a good platform to cash in on through the rest of the day.

Jadhav played his shots and found two sixes, one a pull of Aswin Crist over fine leg and then lofted Sai Kishore through long off.

Vignesh started off being wavered but found his rhythm after a few overs and bowled a long first spell of 10 overs. Sandeep Warrier though was the best bowler for TN in the first session, getting good bounce and carry from good lengths.

With ball getting old and conditions easing, Jadhav who made 283 in the last game will look to get another big one here.

It was the first century for Shaw in this edition of the tournament and he took just 107 deliveries to reach the ton and crafted his innings with 15 fours and a six.

Shaw not only played a flawless innings, he also forged an opening 123-run stand with Musheer Khan to provide a steady start to Mumbai after it was inserted to bat by Assam. But as the day panned out, Assam bowlers struggled under scorching sun as Musheer and Shaw went about their business.
