Young batsman Musheer Khan scored an unbeaten 203 runs in 357 balls. Baroda spinner Bhargav Bhatt took seven wickets for 112 runs. The Mumbai team was in trouble in the ongoing season due to the exclusion of some players, including Shivam Dubey and Shreyas Iyer. Musheer’s brother Sarfaraz is also not a part of the team, as he plays for the Indian team in the Test series against England. After this, Musheer got a chance to play.
