Shah's century makes Mumbai strong
Hiken Shah's unbeaten knock of 118 and skipper Rohit Sharma's 79 i.e 175 runs partnership for the third wicket helped former Ranji Champion Mumbai to make 360 runs for three wickets against Champion Rajasthan on the penultimate day of their four-day Ranji Trophy group A match at the KL Saini Stadium here today.
Hiken Shah and Kaustubh Pawar were batting at 118 and seven runs respectively at stumps drawn.
Resuming the overnight score of 76 for no loss, the openers of the visiting team K Pawar and Tare added 123 runs for the opening wicket and gave a solid start to their team. This partnership was broken by left arm pacer Aniket Choudhary when he bowled out Pawar for 53 at the team score of 123. Pawar faced 133 balls and hit eight boundaries in his innings.
Hiken Shah joined Tare but both could not forge a big partnership and after adding 43 runs for the second wicket, Tare was sent back by Pankaj Singh when he missed the line and was leg before out for 80 runs off 171 balls with 14 fours.
