Mumbai take on Karnataka in key battle

Thursday, December 07, 2017

Nagpur: Mumbai, who routed minnows Tripura by 10 wickets in their last league game to book their knock-out berth, will lock horns with Karnataka in what promises to be a no-holds-barred Ranji Trophy quarter final match today.

Mumbai drubbed Tripura at the Wankhede Stadium in what was a must-win game for the 41-times Ranji Trophy champions to gather some timely momentum after a sluggish earlier phase.

The Mumbai opening pair of in-form young batsman Prithvi Shaw, who has hit three hundreds and two fifties in his debut season, and Jay Bista, who scored a hundred in the last game, will need to be at their best to negotiate the incisive Karnataka attack and give them a sound start at the VCA stadium here in Jamtha. Siddesh Lad, who has an impressive tally of 613 runs, has been Mumbai's crisis man but skipper Aditya Tare has not been among the runs and needs to fire big in this game.
