Ajinkya Rahane’s stay at the crease lasted for only three balls as the Mumbai lad was dismissed by medium-pacer Lakshay Garg for a duck. When Rahane walked in to bat Mumbai were already struggling at 30 for 2 and his dismissal reduced his side to 30 for 3 in the Elite Group D match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

However, Rahane scored a century in his previous Ranji Trophy match against Saurashtra.

For Cheteshwar Pujara too it was not a good day at the office as the Saurashtra lad could only last for six balls for his domestic side after being dismissed by medium-pacer Debabrata Pradhan for 8 against Odisha in Elite Group D match at the Sardar Patel Stadium B in Ahmedabad. In his short stay at the crease, Pujara went on to hit two boundaries.

In his previous Ranji Trophy match against Mumbai Pujara had scored a four-ball duck in the first innings but went on to score 91 of 83 balls in the second innings.
