Opener Akhil Herwadkar missed out on a hundred by four runs as Mumbai reached 244 for five at stumps on day one of their Ranji Trophy Group A match against Railways here on Saturday.

Mysore: Opener Akhil Herwadkar missed out on a hundred by four runs as Mumbai reached 244 for five at stumps on day one of their Ranji Trophy Group A match against Railways here on Saturday.

Herwadkar batted for the better part of the day anchoring the innings with other contributions coming from Shreyas Iyer (70) and Suryakumar Yadav, who remained unbeaten on 60.

Herwadkar hit 15 fours and a six before falling four runs short of a third straight hundred in as many games.

The southpaw had struck 153 and 106 against Madhya Pradesh and Baroda respectively.

His good work then was carried forward by Yadav, who played a very patient knock.

Herwadkar's dismissal led to fall of two quick wickets --Aditya Tare and Siddhesh Lad -- with leggie Karn Sharma doing the damage towards the end of the day.

Brief scores:
Mumbai 244/5 in 90 overs (Herwadkar 96, Iyer 70; Karn Sharma 3/56).


Tamil Nadu Bowl Out Baroda for 93

Raipur: Krishnamoorthy Vignesh and Aswin Crist shared nine wickets between them as Tamil Nadu bundled out Baroda for 93 in their Group A Ranji Trophy cricket match here on Saturday.

Vignesh was the most successful for Tamil Nadu, returning impressive figures of 5/23, while Crist, also a medium pace bowler, picked up 4/39 after Baroda were sent into bat on day one of the match at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium.

By the end of day's play, Tamil Nadu progressed to 79 for 1 in 31 overs, trailing by only 14 runs with nine wickets remaining.

Mukund was batting on 40, while Baba Indrajith was unbeaten on 18, after the departure of opener Kaushik Gandhi for 11.

Opener Mukund found the fence six times during his 93-ball knock.

Earlier, only three Baroda batsmen could reach the double digits in a horrendous batting display, with opener Kedar Devdhar's 26 being the top score.

Baroda were 36/1 and then 71/2, when the dismissal of Dhiren Mistry (23) by Vignesh triggered a slide from which they could never recover.
