Mumbai Tour of Oman: Mumbai bounce back after defeat, beat Oman by four wickets in 4th ODI: Mumbai rode on 50s scored by Aakarshit Gomel, Hardik Tamore
and Sairaj Patil to beat hosts Oman by four wickets in the fourth 50-over match here on Friday.

Electing to bat, opener Kashyap Prajapati’s 146 off 138 balls propelled Oman to post a competitive 248/8, but Mumbai overhauled the target in 46.5 overs to record their third win of the series.

Mumbai have now won three out of the four games, having just lost the third one. They had earlier lost the T20 series 1-2.

On Friday, Mumbai had not so much fuss while chasing, thanks to opener Gomel’s 60 and Tamore’s 58, as these knocks laid foundation.

Mumbai was 18/2, but then Gomel and Tamore forged a 109-run stand for the third wicket to bring them back into contention.

Oman, however, scalped three quick wickets to reduce Mumbai to 150/5. But a gritty unbeaten 52 from Sairaj Patil, who got able support from skipper Shams Mulani (41), helped their team cross the line.

The duo added 92 runs for the sixth wicket, and this partnership played a key role. After Mulani departed, Patil ensured that the team was home in the company of Aman Khan (7 not out).

Earlier, Prajapati pummelled the Mumbai attack to submission. The opener was devoid of partners, but he anchored the innings by striking five boundaries and nine maximums.

Shoaib Khan (12), Khalid Kail (11), Ayaan Khan (7), Sandeep Goud (1), S Mahmood (12) and Muhammed Naseem Kushi (0) faltered as the hosts suffered a top and middle-order collapse and were reeling at 6/106.

But Prajapati found a perfect partner in Nester Dhamba (32 off 62 balls; 1×6), who played second fiddle. The duo forged a crucial 122-run stand for the seventh wicket and pulled the team out of trouble.
