Mumbai chose to bat.
All has been going in Madhya Pradesh’s favor as there is no end to their innings. They started with 123 for 1 and added another 245 runs today just losing 2 wickets. They trail by 6 runs and are moving towards 1st innings lead. This is massive for a team that looks to win their first tournament.
When they started to bat on Day 3, Madhya Pradesh needed to ensure that their power partnership continued even the next day. With 9 wickets in hand, they must have felt confident about their standing. The duo Yash Dubey and Shubham Sharma piled 222 runs for the next wicket.
Both the players were in their 40s when they started Day 2 and finished their centuries having each other on the other end. Shubham Sharma got out on 116 runs. While Yash Dubey had another partnership with Rajat Patidar for the next wicket before getting out on 133. Rajat Patidar also finished his half century.
Rajat Patidar (67*) and Captain Adiya Shrivastava (11*) are at crease now.
The bowling did not have any impact today. Mohit Avasthi and Tushar Deshpande were the only bowlers who got wickets today.
Madhya Pradesh came with intent and there was no stopping for them. The team is in a comfortable position, just 7 runs away from first innings lead. It is a massive win in itself as after day 3, the teams are still not done with innings 1 and the test might end in a draw.
