Mumbai 71 for 1 (Rohit 33 *) won Bihar 69 (Rahmatullah 18, Deshpande 5-23, Mulani 3-18) for nine windows
On a track with some carries for those who could climb it, Bihar retired for 69 against Mumbai in a nine-track loss at Just Cricket Academy Ground in the Vijay Hazare 2018-19 Trophy quarter finals .
Seamer Tushar Deshpande made his first tour of five wickets in his sixth game on List A to add to Bihar in 28.2 shots. Desphande's first spell gave him 4 for 16 in six shots, reducing Bihar to 34 by 4 in the 12th, and there was no recovery from that. Only Babul Kumar and Rahmat Ullah, batters No. 3 and No. 4, got double figures, and no batter could cross 20. No partnership was worth more than 15, and the Mumbai players gave him no respite from start to finish.
The only time Mumbai faced any kind of problem was before it started on the 11th, when a fan jumped the fence. and ran to the middle to embrace Rohit and touch his feet, causing a delay in the game. That could have contributed to Akhil Herwadkar losing his concentration, getting trapped behind, but other than that, it was a walk through Mumbai.
This was the first game that faced one of the new teams in India's biggest national season against an established one. one. Bihar was the best team in the Plate Group, easily outperformed other newcomers and even recorded a record 292 career victory against Sikkim, but the gap between the best of the newcomers and the best domestic cricket dogs in India is still wide. .
Mumbai captain Shreyas Iyer put Bihar in after winning the draw, and from the start, his hitters were never comfortable. Dhawal Kulkarni and Deshpande worked at a good pace, with Desphande in particular, making the ball also bounce appreciably. He hit with his third ball, a lifter that caused Vikash Ranjan to steal Aditya Tare. Deshpande hit in his third, fifth and sixth shots, and Bihar was in the sea.
The spinner of the left arm Shams Mulani entered the act with two quick windows, and Rahmatullah faced a confusion with Samar Quadri. Deshpande completed his five-window run in his second spell to finish with 5 for 23. With Bihar in freefall, Iyer even beat the part-time failures and ended up with the third window of List A when Anunay Singh was trapped behind . Mulani cleaned Ashutosh Aman in the next to finish with 3 for 18.
The scant but vocal crowd that had gathered was expecting a special Rohit, and although Bihar's poor total denied them, they could see a couple of nice cuts, a disdainful blow to the bowler's head for six, and one that went through midwicket.
At the beginning of the chase, Rohit and Herwadkar seemed to have almost a net session, and the total bass had allowed that. luxury. They were in no particular hurry, concentrating more on doing the right thing in their ways than on seeking to drill holes. The fact that Sabir Khan threw five widths in the opening did not help Bihar either.
