MP reach 191/5 after Mumbai score 304

Young Satyam Choudhary remained unbeaten on 73 as Madhya Pradesh reached 191 for five in reply to Mumbai’s first innings score of 304 in a Ranji Trophy group league encounter at the Holkar Stadium here today.

Satyam and former India colts player Harpreet Singh added 37 runs for the unbroken sixth wicket stand when stumps were drawn. Satyam hit 11 boundaries in his undefeated knock and hosts now need 114 runs to surpass Mumbai’s first innings total.

Zaheer Khan didn’t look menacing enough as he bowled 17 overs to take the wicket of rival skipper Devendra Bundela who was bowled for eight. India A players Naman Ojha and Jalaj Saxena also didn’t get many runs although the former looked in great touch as he smashed six fours in his 26-run knock.

Mumbai captain Ajit Agarkar was the most successful bowler taking two for 43. Iqbal Abdulla, Abhishek Nayar and Zaheer got the other wickets.
