How did Mumbai's innings pan out?
Mumbai lost Prithvi Shaw (5) and Hardik Tamore (1) early on to be reduced to 35/2. A solid 105-run stand between Yashasvi and Rahane steadied Mumbai's ship. Services picked up a pile of scalps, including Yashasvi to floor Mumbai (188/6). However, Shams Mulani and Tanush Kotian steered Mumbai past the 250-run mark. For Services, Diwesh Pathania (3/48) was instrumental.
A knock of substance from Yashasvi's blade
Yashasvi slammed 13 fours in his knock of 104 (SR 85.25). He paced his innings well given Mumbai needed some authority after losing those two quick wickets. His century-plus stand alongside Rahane was decisive. Rahane scored a patient knock, facing 67 balls.
