====================================================================================

MUMBAI Overs: 86 II Score: 310/6 ( Tendulkar: 92*, Chavan: 10*)

Sachin survived a little scare when he missed a flighted delivery from Ojha and the keeper went up in appeal after dislodging the bails. Replays showed him to be safe and he carries on batting.

====================================================================================

Mumbai go into lunch at 255 for the loss of 5 wickets and trail ROI by 271 runs. Sachin Tendulkar (59*), and Abhisekh Nayar (1*) are at the crease. ROI would be satisfied with this morning’s play. Ishwar Pandey was extremely impressive even though he bowled a lot of no balls.

====================================================================================

MUMBAI Overs: 71 II Score: 234/4 ( Tendulkar: 59*)

Rohit Sharma is dismissed. Harbhajan is delighted. With just about ten minutes to go for lunch Rohit decides to hoik one for a six but he mis-times it and the ball goes very high in the air and Ojha takes it comfortably at deep mid wicket.

Two spinners in tandem now for Rest of India. Harbhajan has picked up the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane. The ball pitched on middle and Rahane was looking to sweep it. The batsman looked very unhappy with the decision.

====================================================================================

MUMBAI Overs: 62 II Score: 226/3 ( Rahane: 80*, Tendulkar: 36*)

Mumbai batsmen are scoring runs at a good pace now. Ojha was smacked by Rahane for a six and now Tendulkar hits him for a six and a four off consecutive deliveries. Ojha is failing to create any pressure here and Mumbai are cruising along.

====================================================================================

MUMBAI Overs: 57 II Score: 200/3 ( Rahane: 74*, Tendulkar: 17*)

Spin has been introduced now in the form of Pragyan Ojha. He will be looking to get some turn out of this 3rd day pitch. Sachin and Rahane have looked comfortable so far. They will be looking to carry this partnership forward and get as close to the ROI total as possible. Ajinkya Rahane is well on course for a century.

====================================================================================

MUMBAI Overs: 53 II Score: 190/3 ( Rahane: 70*, Tendulkar: 10*)

Sreeshant and Pandey have bowled well in tandem. Pandey has been troubled by his front foot over stepping. The Mumbai batsmen playing with caution and are not doing anything rash. Both batsmen looking to take the singles.

====================================================================================

MUMBAI Overs: 44.1 II Score: 161/3 ( Rahane: 59*)

Mumbai have lost their night watchman early. Ishwar Pandey again gets off to a good start with a wicket in his first over. This one was pitched up and Thakur could not keep his attempted drive on the ground. The catch was well taken by Tiwary at gully. Sachin Tendulkar comes into bat now.

SN Thakur c Tiwary b Pandey 4 (16b 1x4 0x6)
