Electing to bat after winning the toss, Mumbai suffered an early setback when comeback man V Yo Mahesh got Akhil Herwadkar in his first over.

The opener was trapped leg-before for a duck.

Shaw and Shreyas Iyer, who has been picked in the India T20 team to face New Zealand, were in an aggressive frame of mind and attacked the Tamil Nadu bowlers.

In a quick start despite the loss of Herwadkar, the 50 came in the eighth over.

They raised the teams 100 in the 20th over as Iyer rattled along striking some beautiful shots in the process.

He raised his half-century at run-a-ball.

Shaw appeared subdued but played some splendid shots too as the Tamil Nadu bowlers struggled to contain the free-stroking Mumbai batsmen.

Iyer fell at 106 after a fluent knock of 57 which included seven fours and two sixers.

He edged a delivery from Vijay Shankar to keeper N Jagadeesan.

The Mumbai batsmen continued to look for runs and Surya Kumar Yadav added 63 runs with Shaw in just over 11 overs to keep the momentum.

Shaw, who was 76 at the lunch break, only required another 26 balls to reach his century and continued to push the Mumbai score along.

The young right-hander hit 17 fours and two sixes before falling for 123 to Ravichandran Ashwin.

The country's premier off-spinner had previously got rid of the aggressive Siddesh Lad.

Mumbai skipper Aditya Tare scored an important half-century to further the teams cause and added 63 runs with the experienced Abhishek Nayar, before Vijay Shankar provided TN the much-needed breakthrough.

The all-rounder provided another wicket for Tamil Nadu by sending back Vijay Gohil in the final over of the day as Mumbai finished at 314 for 7.

It was another hard day for Ashwin as he bowled 29 overs for 77 in picking up two wickets while Yo Mahesh also scalped two Mumbai batsmen.

Left-arm spinner Rahil S Shah went for 82 runs in his 25 overs while young all-rounder M S Washington Sundar bowled only four overs.

Brief scores (Day 1): Mumbai 314 for 7 in 89.1 overs (Prithvi Shaw 123, Shreyas Iyer 57, Aditya Tare 53, Vijay Shankar 3 for 37, R Ashwin 2 for 77) vs Tamil Nadu.

At Vizianagaram: Andhra Pradesh 278 for 2 in 89.5 overs (G Hanuma Vihari 143 batting, D B Prashanth Kumar 127) vs Odisha.

At Agartala: Tripura 88 for 6 in 40 overs (B B Ghosh 42 batting, Ishwar Pandey 3 for 20) vs Madhya Pradesh.

Jharkhand bowl out Haryana for 208 on Amit Mishra's return

Ranchi: Haryana managed a paltry 208 against Jharkhand on the first day of a Ranji Trophy group B encounter, a match that marked veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra's return to competitive cricket after six-month lay-off due to injury.

Off-spinner Sunny Gupta (4/67) and seamer Jaskaran Singh (3/52) shared bulk of the spoils with India A regular Shahbaz Nadeem at his parsimonious best taking 2 for 27 in 23 overs.

Haryana in fact suffered a batting collapse as they were comfortably placed at 146 for 2 in the second session before losing last eight wickets for 54 runs.

Opener Shubham Rohilla (52) and Chaitanya Bishnoi (61) were the top scorers for Haryana.

Mishra in his return to competitive cricket scored only two runs. He later bowled a couple of overs when Jharkhand batted at the end of the day to reach 14 for no loss.

Brief scores Group B

Haryana 208 (Chaitanya Bishnoi 61, Shubham Rohilla 52, Sunny Gupta 4/67, Shahbaz Nadeem 2/27, Jaskaran Singh 3/52)

Jharkhand 14/0 in 7 overs.

Siraj celebrates India call-up with four wickets, Rahul fails

Shimoga: Mohammed Siraj celebrated his India call-up with a four wicket haul as Hyderabad dismissed Karnataka for 183 on the first day of a Ranji Trophy group A encounter.

At stumps, Hyderabad were 51 for 3 with Kolla Sumanth unbeaten on 34.

Siraj grabbed 4 for 42 in 15 overs as India international KL Rahul was castled by medium pacer Ravi Kiran for four runs. He looked rusty during his 27-ball stay at the crease.

Hosts Karnataka after a good batting show in the previous game faltered badly with only Stuart Binny's 61 off 88 balls adding some semblance of respectability to the total.

Karnataka were reduced to 89 for six at one stage but added 56 runs with Krishnappa Gowtham (13) as they managed to get close to 150-run mark.

Siraj hit the deck hard and got the deliveries to jag back into right-handers after pitching. He removed his India A teammate Ravikumar Samarth (19) and also breached through the defences of IPL specialist Mayank Agarwal (0), whose questionable technique was again exposed thoroughly.

Siraj also removed the dangerous looking Stuart Binny in his second spell along with Gowtham.

Brief scores:

Karnataka 183 (Stuart Binny 61, KL Rahul 4, Mohammed Siraj 4/42) Hyderabad 51/3 (Kolla Sumanth 34 no)

In Guwahati: Assam 216/8 (Tarjinder Singh 43, Deepak Bansal 3/50, Anureet Singh 2/65, Amit Mishra 3/56) vs Railways

At Lucknow: Maharashtra 274/4 (Ankit Bawne 107 batting, Saurabh Kumar 3/100) vs Uttar Pradesh.

Jiwanjot's double-century steers Punjab to 396/2 vs Goa

Porvorim: Opener Jiwanjot Singh struck double-century and Anmolpreet Singh hit a ton as Punjab reached 396 for two on the opening day of their Group D Ranji Trophy match against Goa.

Punjab has no points from two outings so far, having lost a match and conceding a lead in another.

Opting to bat, Punjab did not have an ideal start as they lost opener Manan Vohra for a three-ball duck in the first over itself but his opening partner, Jiwanjot scored an unbeaten 215 to put the team in control by the end of the first day's play.

When the stumps were drawn, Anmolpreet Singh was giving Jiwanjot company at the other end at an unbeaten 103.

Jiwanjot and Anmolpreet shared an unbroken 236-run stand for the fourth wicket.

Anmolpreet, promoted to No 4 in the absence of Yuvraj Singh, struck 11 fours and two sixes, while Jiwanjot hit 26 boundaries and a six.

Uday Kaul missed out on converting a good start into a century as he fell for 66 off 118 balls that included 10 hits to the fence.

Brief scores:

Punjab 1st innings: 396/2 in 90 overs (Jiwanjot Singh 215 batting, Anmolpreet Singh 103 batting).

Other Group D matches:

Himachal Pradesh vs Services

Himachal Pradesh 1st innings: 273/5 in 90 overs (Nikhil Gangta 89 batting, Ankush Bains 68; Vikas Yadav 3/79).
