Mumbai: Reigning champions Mumbai stood poised for a thumping victory over Vidarbha after reducing them to 177 for 8, in a chase of 530, on day three of their Group A Ranji Trophy match on Saturday.

The hosts compiled a huge 381 for 4 declared in their second innings, riding on centuries from opener Aditya Tare (172 in 190 balls with 16 fours and 6 sixes) and South Africa-bound batsman Ajinkya Rahane (133 in 254 balls with 14 fours and one six), to set Vidarbha an improbable target of 530 for an outright win.

The visitors, who conceded a lead of 148 runs in the first innings, produced another totally inept batting display to face a massive defeat.
