Electing to bat, Rajsingh and Shubham stitched a brilliant 243-run partnership for the second wicket after the Dadar outfit lost their first wicket on 25 when opener Tanay Khandeshi (5) edged right-arm pacer Atharva Bhagat to Avesh Khan at second slip in the sixth over. The partnership between Rajsingh and Shubham came to an end in the 59th over when leg-spinner Jawwed Ali trapped Rajsingh in front of the wicket. The right-hander struck 18 fours and one six in his 156-ball knock.
