In the ongoing semifinals of the Ranji Trophy 2024, star India allrounder Shardul Thakur rescues Mumbai from trouble. Bowling first, Mumbai bundled up Tamil Nadu for a mere 146 runs but failed to put up a show with the bat. 


Apart from Musheer Khan, not a single batter in the top eight scored more than 35 runs. Musheer, in his innings, scored 55 runs off 131 balls as Mumbai lost their seven wickets for a mere 107 runs. However, Shardul, along with Hardik Tamore, led Mumbai to relief as he smashed a magnificent century. 

Here is the video: 


Thakur, in his innings, scored a brilliant century while stitching up a beautiful century partnership with Hardik. Both not only rescued Mumbai but also led them to a comfortable position. Thakur is currently batting at 108 runs, while Hardik has been dismissed by R. Sai Kishore

Sai Kishore broke havoc in the Mumbai batting lineup! 


Regarding Tamil Nadu, it's worth mentioning that R. Sai Kishore has been phenomenal for them. In his spell till now, Kishore has clinched six wickets by giving just 88 runs in 33 overs. His remarkable performance started with Bhupesh Lalwani falling into his trap. After his departure, Kishore also dismissed Mohit Singh, Musheer Khan, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shreyas Iyer, among others. 

With Shardul Thakur's amazing performance, Mumbai is currently looking for a commanding position. The team has a hefty lead of 144 runs over Tamil Nadu. Mumbai will be keen to continue their dominance with the bat and win the game by a margin of an innings. However, for this, Shardul Thakur would need to bat long. Notably, this is Shardul Thakur's maiden first-class century. He has been phenomenal for India in Test cricket for a long time.
