Mushtaq Ali Trophy: Shivam Dube’s all-round performance takes Mumbai closer to knockout stages | Cricket News


RAJKOT: Prithvi Shaw had a rare day off but Shivam Dube joined the party as his all-round performance ensured a 15-run win for Mumbai Vidarbha Sunday in a Group A match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament.
Batting first, Mumbai scored 155 for eight in 20 overs with Dubey’s 41 off 40 balls and Sarfaraz Khan’s 26 off 20 balls enabling the tournament favorites to cross the 150-run mark.
In reply, Vidarbha were restricted to 140 for six with in-form left-arm spinner Shams Mulani (3/21 in 4 overs) and Dub (2/20 in 3 overs) choking the run flow.
Earlier, Shaw (19 off 13 balls), who shot to 134 off 61 balls in the last match, hit three fours and a six before being bowled by India international Umesh Yadav (2/38).
However, it was left-arm spinner Aditya Sarwate (3/28) who put the brakes on in the middle overs, and even a big hitter like Dube had to play the guard game.
As they chased, Vidarbha were clawed back in the contest and found themselves reeling at 50 for four in the ninth over as their T20 specialist big hitter Jitesh Sharma gave a catch to custodian Hardik Tamore of Dube.
The lower middle order tried its side but by then Mumbai were shooting way ahead.
They lead the Group A standings with 16 from four games and need to win just two of their next three games to secure direct entry to the quarter-finals.
