Appanna, Mithun restrict Mumbai to modest total; TNCA XI win

Requiring to win their last league tie with a healthy run rate too at the Pachayappas ‘A’ ground, Karnataka bowled Mumbai out for 230, and replied with 16 without loss by close on day one of the two-day contest.

Minus the indisposed duo of Rohit Sharma and Abhishek Nayar, Mumbai were always on the back foot, and had it not been for a patient 93 (207b, 11x4) by Prashant Naik, their plight would have been even worse.

Karnataka’s competitors for the lone semifinal slot from the group, TNCA President’s XI, also made a brilliant start. Shalab Srivatsava made an unbeaten 104 (168b, 13x4), but Vidarbha managed just 238 as M Suresh Babu picked up six for 54. President’s XI were 11 without loss at stumps.
