The visitors opted to bat after winning the toss and almost immediately suffered a setback with Kevin Jivrajani (0) falling prey to Sandeep Warrier. Opener Harvik Desai (83) and Sheldon Jackson (22) were among runs. Cheteshwar Pujara (2), Saurahstra’s highest run-scorer this season, was sent back by Ajith Ram.

In Mumbai, India U-19 World Cup star Musheer Khan came to Mumbai’s rescue with his maiden first-class hundred as the hosts recovered from a precarious position to reach 248 for five against Baroda.

The 18-year-old Musheer, younger brother of Sarfaraz Khan, was batting on 128 off 216, studded with 10 fours.
