Cuttack: Skipper Aditya Tare's unbeaten 42-ball 49 added to a good bowling effort as Mumbai thrashed a hapless Services side by eight wickets in the Group D Twenty20 cricket match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy here today.
Chasing a modest 128 for a win at the Barabati stadium, Mumbai rode a third-wicket 50-run unbeaten stand between tare and Siddhesh Lad (20 not out) to achieve the target with 11 balls to spare.
Opener Akhil Herwadkar laid a solid foundation with a 33-ball 39 and Shreyas Iyer contributed with a 15-ball 17.
Earlier Mumbai medium-pacers Shardul Thakur and Rohan Raje shared two wickets apiece to restrict Services to a below-par 127 for seven in 20 overs.
Yashpal Singh made a defiant 40 not out as rest of the batting failed to get going.
Services 127/7 in 20 overs (Yashpal Singh 40 not out, Rajat Paliwal 26; Shardul Thakur 2-17, Rohan Raje 2-37)
Mumbai 128/2 in 18.1 overs (Aditya Tare 49 not out, Akhil Herwadkar 39; Raushan Raj 1-26, Rajat Paliwal 1-15)
Points: Mumbai 4, Services 0.
