Mumbai denied Rajasthan wickets in reply to the hosts' massive 478 on Day Two of their Group A Ranji Trophy match at the KL Saini ground on Saturday.

The former champions ended the day at 76 for no loss with wicketkeeper-batsman Aditya Tare unbeaten on 43 and Kaustubh Pawar on 26.

Rajasthan resumed the day on 269 for two, but lost centurion Vineet Saxena early when Tare held on to a snick off pacer Dhawal Kulkarni.

Robin Bisht (34), Ashok Menaria (26) and R R Parida (28) failed to cash in on starts, but wicketkeeper Dishant Yagnik stayed unbeaten on 76 off 123 balls.

It was a tiring day for Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma, who used eight bowlers to tackle Rajasthan. The day ended on a positive note with his openers playing out 28 testing overs.
