Exclusive Pics : Sachin Tendulkar in Action During Day 3 of the Ranji Game vs Railways

Despite dropping a few catches, Mumbai were poised to take a big first-innings lead after restricting Railways to 380 for eight on day three of their Group A Ranji Trophy match here today.

In pursuit of Mumbai's massive 570 all out, Railways were trailing by 190 runs at stumps, and required another 41 to avoid follow-on.

To challenge the might of Mumbai, the visitors needed at least a couple of big knocks from their top-order batsmen but that did not happen, though there were three half-centuries.

Railways, however, could not really capitalise on the lives they got at the Wankhede stadium.
