    29.4 and Nayar does it! He draws Gohel onto a defensive poke. He gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Tare takes the catch and the third wicket falls for Gujarat 89/3
    14.2 and there's the first wicket! Pitches one in the corridor outside the off stump, Panchal is drawn into a stroke. He gets an outside edge that Suryakumar catches to his left, at second slip. Panchal can't break Laxman's record, but what a Ranji Trophy he has had. 47/1

    18.3 and that's the second wicket. After getting the ball to move away, ball after ball, Sandhu gets one to move back in. Merai played the ball on line and shouldered arms, only to find the off stump pegged back. Mumbai, slowly but surely, crawling back into the match 51/2
    87.3 short ball down the leg stump line. He looks to go for the pull, but gets a top edge that Shardul runs in and takes. What an innings it has been. Edges, brilliant strokes, edge and more brilliant strokes. The people present at the stadium give him a standing ovation. Is this the opening that Mumbai are looking for? Is it too late? 299/5
    65.5 looks to sweep it from outside the off stump. He looks to have feathered an edge to Tare. Tare's celebrations after Juneja was given out were in the face of the departing batsman. Has Mumbai turned the game? 205/4
