Chasing Goa's score of 266 for 8, Mumbai secured the win in the 47th over as the top-order got going.

He was involved in two important partnerships, first with Jay Bista for 64 runs and then with Surya Kumar Yadav (90 runs).

The young right-hander hit six fours and a six in his innings of 53.

Yadav then forged a 52-run stand with Tare, who scored an almost run-a-ball 50.
