DNA (Delhi) - - PROPERTY -

Pune: Bowlers and stand-in skip­per Sid­desh Lad who scored an un­beaten 70 led Mum­bai’s fight­back against Ma­ha­rash­tra on the sec­ond day of their Elite Group A Ranji Tro­phy match here.

Af­ter bundling out Ma­ha­rash­tra for 352, Mum­bai ended the sec­ond day at 196/5, still adrift by 156 runs, at the Ma­ha­rash­tra Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion Sta­dium on Fri­day.

In the morn­ing, Ma­ha­rash­tra — who re­sumed at their overnight first in­nings score of 298/3 — were bowled out for 352 with medium-pacer Akash Parkar (4/56) be­ing the pick of Mum­bai bowlers.

The fight­back for Mum­bai was con­tin­ued by cri­sis man Lad who walked in at No. 3 af­ter the early fall of opener Jay Bista (23). Lad, who hit nine fours and a six in his 151-ball knock, and ex­pe­ri­enced Aditya Tare (63), who opened the in­nings, com­piled a cru­cial 109-run stand for the sec­ond wicket. But Ma­ha­rash­tra hit back by tak­ing three quick wick­ets.
