For Mumbai, opener Aakarshit Gomel top-scored with 34. The Oman bowlers kept making inroads even as one-drop Sujit Nayak (25), Chinmay Sutar (19), and Hardik Tamore (16) failed to convert their starts into big scores.

The lower-middle order also did not make any significant contributions.

Oman was off to a brisk start as openers IIlyas (17) and Jatindersingh Singh (46 off 28 balls; 3×5; 5×6) added 51 runs.
