Mumbai were in trouble at 8/2 after Punjab rode on Mayank Sidhana’s century and skipper Gurkeerat Singh’s 93 to notch up 468 in their Group A Ranji Trophy match here today.

Sidhana struck 115 off 254 balls while Gurkeerat fell seven short of a century on day two at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

The day had started with Punjab on 216 for 4, with Gitansh Khera on 4 and Sidhana on 11. Khera fell for 16 after which Sidhana and Gurkeerat came together for a sixth-wicket partnership of 178 that pushed the score past 400.

However, Punjab collapsed to lose their last five wickets for 34 runs.

The slide began with Gurkeerat’s dismissal for 93, caught behind off Tushar Deshpande. Sidhana fell to the same bowler in his next over, and though Manpreet Gony scored 31, the lower order was dismissed quickly. Suryakumar Yadav took a career-best 4 for 47.

In reply, Mumbai’s Shreyas Iyer was dismissed for a second-ball duck and Armaan Jaffer was trapped lbw by right-arm medium pacer Kamal Passi. Mumbai are behind by 460 runs with eight wickets in hand at stumps.
