Mumbai: Mumbai continued to pile up the runs on the second day of the Irani Cup match against Rest of India at Brabourne Stadium here on Monday too, with Suryakumar Yadav becoming the second centurion of the match.

Yadav top-scored with 156 as the Ranji champions posted a mammoth 603 in their first innings.

 

After sweating it out on the field for more than five sessions (725 minutes) in which they bowled 158.2 overs, RoI saw off a difficult 75 minutes of play, losing Srikar Bharat (16) in the process.

The right-handed Andhra batsman negotiated 35 balls and struck three boundaries but perished while chasing a wide delivery from all-rounder Abhishek Nayar towards the fag end of the day, slashing to Siddesh Lad at point.

Play was extended for about an hour to compensate for just 83 overs bowled on the first day.

Opener Faiz Fazal (18 not out) and Jayant Yadav (1 not out) were left to negotiate the challenging last 15 minutes in which they had to counter lengthening shadows.

Brief scores: Mumbai 603 in 158.2 overs (S. Yadav 156,  J Bista 104, A. Herwadkar 90; J. Yadav 4/132, J. Unadkat 2/128, K. Das 2/152) vs Rest of India 36/1 in 16 overs (F. Fazal 18 batting)
