RP Singh had an impressive outing.

Mumbai, who came into the Ranji Trophy final as huge favourites, were bowled out for just 228 on day one against Gujarat on Tuesday.

The 41-time Ranji Trophy champions were put into bat by Gujarat captain Parthiv Patel and lost wickets at regular intervals to hand their opponents the initiative.

Once again, 17-year-old Prithvi Shaw was impressive, top scoring for Mumbai before being dismissed for 71, a knock which included 11 boundaries.

Suryakumar Yadav also notched up a half-century, but the Mumbai camp will be very disappointed in the way some of their batsmen threw their wickets away.

The wickets were spread among the Gujarat bowlers, with RP Singh, Chintan Gaja and Rujul Bhatt picking up two scalps each while Rush Kalaria and Hardik Patel accounted for a wicket a piece.

Gujarat were 2-0 at stumps on day one, with Samit Gohel very lucky to still be at the crease after being dropped by Shaw at first slip off the first ball of their innings.

BRIEF SCORES

Mumbai 228 all out [Shaw 71, Yadav 57, Gaja 2/46] lead Gujarat 2/0 [Gohel 2*] by 226 runs.
