Mumbai win big – Times of India

Visakhapatnam: Andhra lost tamely to Mumbai in the first match of the Ranji trophy tournament with a day to spare, at the PVG Raju Sports Complex, Vizianagaram, on Thursday. Mumbai won by nine wickets after dismissing the hosts for 131 in their second innings.
Andhra did well in restricting Mumbai to 331 after the visitors resumed at 290 for six. Armaan Jaffer fell at the overnight score of 116 while Tanush Kotian went on to complete an unbeaten half century. Off-spinner Shoaib Md Khan who scored 84 on the first day, did well with the ball claiming four wickets and medium pacer KV Sasikanth took three and left-arm spinner A. Lalith Mohan had three wickets, after beating the batsmen a number of times.
However, Andhra batsmen floundered in their second innings. No one could build on a good start and Mumbai bowlers dominated the batsmen with their steady bowling. Andhra managed to take the innings beyond the tea break but soon folded up leaving Mumabi with a target of 39 to win. Sasikanth claimed Prithiv Shaw for the second time in the match and Mumbai won by nine wickets. Andhra play their next match against Tamil Nadu in Coimbatore from December 20.
Brief scores: Andhra 238 and 131 in 47.4 overs (UMS Girinath 27; Tushar U Deshpande 3/34) lost to Mumbai 331 in 123 overs (Armaan Jaffer 116, Tanush Kotian 63 no, Yashasvi Jaiswal 45, Ajinkya Rahane 44; Shoaib Md Khan 4/73, KV Sasikanth 3/56, A Lalith Mohan 3/113) and 40/1 in 6.1 overs.
