Mumbai: Jharkhand batsman Saurabh Tiwary compiled his maiden double ton, a swashbuckling 238, before the team's bowlers stifled Mumbai's batsmen only to loosen the grip on a rollercoaster second day two of their Group A Ranji Trophy match in Mumbai on Saturday.

In reply to the visitors' first innings total of 351, Mumbai were pushed firmly on the back foot by the pace of Varun Aaron before Hiken Shah (46 batting) and Suryakumar Yadav (49 batting) came to their side's rescue with an unbroken 96-run stand for the sixth wicket.

The duo, who came together when the 40-time champions were tottering at 114 for five before tea, batted through the last session to guide Mumbai to 210 for 5, still 141 runs behind the visitors' score.
