Shams Mulani disappointed Mumbai team
After starting the day at 123 for one wicket, the batsmen of Madhya Pradesh scored 245 runs while playing patiently on the third day, but during this time the Mumbai bowlers longed for wickets. Rajat Patidar, who performed brilliantly for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League at the time of stumps, was playing 67 off 106 balls with the help of 13 fours and captain Aditya Srivastava scoring 11 runs in 33 balls. The effort of the team will now be to increase its lead so much from where Mumbai could not get a chance to return.
The pitch at the Chinnaswamy Stadium was not showing any sign of help to the bowlers. The strong sunlight during the day made the batsmen’s job easier. The biggest disappointment came to Mumbai’s left-arm spinner Shams Mulani (117 for one wicket in 40 overs), who bowled too many loose deliveries.
