Mumbai: Maharashtra fought their way back in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal against Mumbai in brilliant fashion by bundling out the defending champions for a meagre 129 in second innings on a dramatic third day of the five-day match in Mumbai on Friday.

Maharashtra were all out for 280 in their first innings in reply to Mumbai's 402, thereby conceding a lead of 122 runs, but the visiting bowlers brought their side back into the game by dismissing the hosts for just 129 on a day which saw 14 wickets fall.

Mumbai were in even worse situation as they were reduced to 29 for 5 at one stage before some rear-guard lower order batting took the score past 100-mark.
