Reigning champions Mumbai tightened their grip over their Ranji Trophy Group A match by bowling out Railways for 160 and scalping four more batsmen after enforcing follow on.
Railways began at 76 for three but left-arm spinner Vijay Gohil, together with Shardul Thakur and Balwinder Sandhu ripped apart the Railways’ middle order as Mumbai took a handsome 185-run lead.
Railways batsmen managed to get starts but there was no big partnerships as they continued to perish one after another.
Captain Karn Sharma was highest scorer with 24 while Ashish Singh made 22. Nitin Bhille (18) and Arindam Ghosh (17) too got starts but could not convert those into big ones.
Gohil, who had taken two of the three wickets yesterday, got rid of Gosh, Fiaz Ahmed (16) and Karan Thakur (0) to complete his five-wicket haul. Thakur and Sandhu took two wickets apiece.
