Shreyas Iyer's unbeaten 79 helped Mumbai beat Gujarat to register their second win in the west zone leg of the inter-state T20 competition for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Mumbai breezed to their 132-run target with five wickets in hand and ten balls to spare.

Iyer, who opened the innings, hit six fours and four sixes. He put on 42 for the first wicket with Ajinkya Rahane, who struck a 30-ball 25. Although Mumbai slipped to 112 for 5, Iyer's blazing start meant they were always ahead of the asking rate. Earlier in the day, Rujul Bhatt top-scored with 47 in Gujarat's 131 for 9. Pravin Tambe, the 45-year old legspinner, took 2 for 19 off four overs. Gujarat now have one win in two matches.

Maharashtra bounced back from their loss to Gujarat on Sunday by beating Saurashtra by 15 runs in their second league fixture. Ankit Bawne, who made an unbeaten 90 in the first game, top-scored with 71 in Maharashtra's 165 for 9. Saurashtra looked down and out at 86 for 8, but were revived courtesy Prerak Mankad's counterattack. The allrounder struck three fours and five sixes in his 46-ball 72 before falling off the last ball of the innings, to fast bowler Anupam Sanklecha, who finished with 2 for 20 off four overs. Saurashtra fast bowler Shaurya Sanandia finished with a four-wicket haul in a losing cause. Cheteshwar Pujara, who opened the innings, was out for 4.
