At the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur on Friday, Mumbai bowled Uttarakhand out for 143 on the first day of their Under-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy encounter. Yaseen Saudagar took five wickets in the process.

Mumbai had a 201/4 score at the end of the play, a 58-run advantage. While No. 3 Abhigyan Kundu sped to 47 off 28 balls with the aid of 10 fours before being caught LBW by Aditya Chakravarty, Harsh Gaikar, entering at No. 5, remained undefeated on 65 (82b, 13×4).

However, the bowlers had already caused the damage previously. Dev Damania, who picked up four wickets while giving up only seven runs in 6.3 overs, provided a strong counterbalance to Saudagar’s 5/52.

To reduce Uttarakhand to 33/3, Saudagar, who shared the new ball with Pratapraj Pulla (1/31) took out both openers, including skipper Anmol Singh. After then, Mumbai continued to make regular breakthroughs, cutting through the middle and lower order with Saudagar and Damania.

Brief ratings: Mumbai 201/4 in 41 overs against. Uttarakhand 143 in 46.3 overs (Vikas Yadav 29; Yaseen Saudagar 5/52, Dev Damania 4/7) (Harsh Gaikar 65 batting, Abhigyan Kundu 47)
