3rd 50-over match: Oman beat Mumbai by 2 wickets after last ball 6 by Kaleemullah
Mumbai, after losing the just concluded T20 series 1-2, were unbeaten in the 50-over series so far, but the Oman batsmen held their nerves to script a memorable win in the third game.
The hosts then chased down the target on the last ball with Ayaan Khan playing a key part in the victory with a stroke-filled 91.
Jaiswal, who struck six fours and three sixes, anchored the Mumbai innings despite losing Hardik Tamore (4) cheaply. Mumbai were once teetering at 26/3 after Arman Jaffer (2) and Chinmay Sutar (3) also fell early.
Then Jaiswal took the onus to score runs. Sairaj Patil (6) and Dhurmil Matkar (13) could not convert their starts, but thanks to a quickfire 31 off 19 balls by number eight Aman Khan, Mumbai could go beyond the 235-run mark.
Kaleemullah (2/9) and Mohammad Nadeem (2/32) were the leading wicket takers for Oman.
Offie Shashank Attarde (1/39) brought back Mumbai into the game by removing Nadeem at a crucial juncture.
However, Ayaan Khan kept playing his shots and took the game deep. He missed out on a well deserving hundred and was run-out in the penultimate over.
