Ranjane stars in Mumbai’s win over TN; Goa beats Rajasthan

Friday, February 09, 2018

Chennai: Mumbai handed host Tamil Nadu a second straight defeat, winning by two wickets to secure a third consecutive victory in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy Group 'C' League here.

Chasing 184 for a win after Tamil Nadu had been bowled out in 49.3 overs, Shubam Ranjane (59 not out) came to Mumbai's rescue after the team had slumped to 79 for 5.

India Test spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had brought Tamil Nadu back into the game with a tight spell, during which he scalped skipper Aditya Tare (17) and Surya Kumar Yadav (21). Earlier, the host endured a poor start as Dhawal Kulkarni sent back opener M Kaushik Gandhi caught behind by Tare in the first over for a duck.

Tamil Nadu, who were without Test opener Murali Vijay, stuttered as wickets fell at regular intervals.

Ashwin (41) and N Jagadeesan (31) managed the only half-century partnership of the innings as the team struggled to 183 all out. Kulkarni was the most successful Mumbai bowler with three wickets while Ranjane and Dhrumil Matkar scalped two each.

When Mumbai batted, they too didn't have things their way. Young sensation Prithvi Shaw, fresh from leading India to triumph in the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand, hit two boundaries, but was sent back by K Vignesh in the third over. The quick loss of Tare and Yadav would have raised Tamil Nadu's hopes but Ranjane followed up his spell of 2 for 28 by hammering six fours and two sixers to see Mumbai home.

Mumbai lost two wickets when in sight of a win, but Ranjane held firm to ensure the team remained unbeaten.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Life sometimes smiles down upon you, and today seems to be such a day. Though you will remain occupied with your work, there will be no pressure. Same is the case with your personal life. What more does one need? Ganesha is probably trying to teach you to be content. Extravagance of any kind will cause you money problems. Be particularly careful about this.
