Ranji Trophy Final: Iyer's 82 leads Mumbai fight back on Day 3

Shreyas Iyer's 82 helped defending champions Mumbai fight back as they reached 208 for three in their second innings after allowing Gujarat to take a 100-run first-innings lead on the third day of the Ranji Trophy cricket final on Thursday.

Iyer found a perfect foil in former captain Suryakumar Yadav (45 not out) and the duo shared a 127-run stand for the third wicket as Mumbai built a 108-run lead over Gujarat in their bid to extend their record haul of 41 Ranji Trophy titles.


Amla, Duminy power South Africa to 338-3 on Day 1 at the Wanderers

Hashim Amla emulated the performance of Graeme Smith at The Oval in 2012 in scoring a century in his 100th Test match on the opening day of the final Sunfoil Test match against Sri Lanka at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Thursday.

On that famous weekend in London the Standard Bank Proteas achieved one of the biggest victories in the history of Test cricket, winning by an innings after losing only two wickets. That occasion also witnessed Hashim Amla’s unbeaten treble century – the only one ever achieved by a South African – and few would bet against something similar from Amla this weekend.
