Ranji Trophy: Suryakumar Yadav century helps Mumbai dominate MP

Skipper Suryakumar Yadav struck a superb century, his sixth in first-class cricket and second of the season, while young opener Akhil Herwadkar missed his ton by just three runs as Mumbai dominated Madhya Pradesh on day one of the four-day Group A Ranji Trophy match here today.

The 24-year-old Yadav took full advantage of a pedestrian MP bowling attack to stroke his way to 135 off 145 balls, after openers Aditya Tare (37) and left-handed Herwadkar (97) laid a good foundation of 93 runs, to help Mumbai end the opening day at a commanding 375 for 4 in 87 overs.

The only batsman to fail was no 3 Shreyas Iyer who came into the game after scoring a brilliant century against Bengal at Kolkata as the home batsmen made merry against a toothless attack after being asked to bat first at the Wankhede Stadium.
