Mumbai 299/6 at Lunch

Prasad Pawar scored his maiden first-class century as Mumbai headed for lunch at 299-6, still trailing by 85 runs. Resuming the day at 99, Pawar (142 n.o., 256b) brought up his century on the first ball of the day, as Mumbai did make an attempt to fight back in a must-win game.

On a Brabourne Stadium surface that had very little help for the bowlers, Pawar forged a 51-run stand with Shams Mulani before the latter was stumped by stumper Saurabh Nawale off a Siddesh Veer delivery.

Mumbai must take a first-innings lead in a bid to make it to the quarterfinals, but with its top-order failing to rise to the occasion, Pawar stood firm and played a disciplined innings.

However, Maharashtra would be disappointed as Nawale dropped Pawar behind the stumps for 121 off a Pradeep Dadhe delivery. And making optimum use of the reprieve, Pawar went about his business, trying to build yet another partnership with Tanush Kotian (38 no, 55b). Having got six stitches on his left hand after being hit on the first day, Kotian came out to bat and hit three boundaries and a six.

Just at the stroke of lunch, he was caught at deep square leg by Veer off a Dadhe delivery, but the umpires called it a no-ball. As Maharashtra players looked dejected, there were huge cheers from the Mumbai camp.

Day 2 recap - Pondicherry vs Kerala
