  Maharashtra 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal HH Khadiwale lbw b Vinay Kumar 15 39 29 3 0 51.72
8.4 there's the first one down! He was stuck on the back foot for a long time and this full length ball had just a touch of shape in. Khadiwale looks to defend but plays the wrong line as he brings his bat around the pad and is trapped plumb in front. 24/1
View dismissal CG Khurana lbw b Nair 64 212 145 8 0 44.13
49.6 he's given, Nair has broken through as Khurana tried to sweep. Struck in front of middle and that would have gone on to hit off stump. He had shuffled across and tried to sweep this very full delivery but missed it altogether and is struck low on the front pad. Very good decision from umpire Shamsuddin. That was Nair's maiden first-class wicket, vital time to chip in 144/4
View dismissal VH Zol c †Gautam b Aravind 5 36 28 0 0 17.85
16.5 this time he's edged it! Zol's luck runs out as this one bounces and seams outside off. Pitched it back of a length and draws Zol into an airy push, possibly through point, but only manages an outside edge through to the keeper. Karnataka are making some serious inroads using the help available in the morning session. 42/2
View dismissal KM Jadhav c †Gautam b Mithun 37 64 44 6 0 84.09
30.5 a very delayed reaction from umpire Anil Chaudhary as he surveyed the fielders appealing and he gives it. The danger man Jadhav is gone for a pretty 37, strangled down the leg side. It was full and seamed in a touch as he was looking to flick it away to long leg. Big appeal from the keeper straight up and there seemed to be a noise as the ball passed the bat, but Jadhav looked forlornly at the umpire before walking off. Too tight to call there, there was a flick of the trouser as the ball went past as well 90/3
View dismissal AR Bawne b Mithun 89 237 173 10 0 51.44
91.1 shatters his middle stump first ball! Went wide of the crease and brought this back quite sharply. Bawne was late on it, moving only half-forward to meet this fullish delivery on and around off stump. He had not expected it to cut back so much and it sneaks through the gap between bat and pad. What a start for Mithun and Karnataka! Started with a big no ball yesterday, no easy ones today! 272/6
View dismissal RH Motwani*† c †Gautam b Mithun 17 82 61 2 0 27.86
72.1 he's poked outside off and a regulation edge carries through to the keeper. Length ball just outside off, should have been left alone but he goes for a waft on the front foot away from the body and succumbs 215/5
View dismissal SD Atitkar c †Gautam b Aravind 50 133 97 8 0 51.54
101.1 another one caught down the leg side and Atitkar walks! Clear inside edge as this length ball was pushed in on his pads. The back foot flick does not connect the way he wants it to and Aravind strikes for the second time in as many overs this morning. 301/8
View dismissal SS Mundhe c Pandey b Aravind 7 41 32 1 0 21.87
99.5 moves around the wicket and he's snared a beauty at first slip! Back of a length and it straightens outside off. Mundhe was drawn into playing because of the change in angle and even as he tries to correct himself and leave the ball, it runs off the face to the right of Pandey in the cordon. But he leaps off his feet and pulls off an absolute stunner, with both hands safely behind the ball. Excellent work 294/7
View dismissal AA Darekar c Aravind b Vinay Kumar 2 22 12 0 0 16.66
104.1 and there's the final one. It's Vinay's eighth straight over this morning and he's rewarded for his persistence as he keeps this full on off stump. Darekar goes for a loft over mid-off, but he doesn't get enough on it. Settles safely in Aravind's hands 305/10
View dismissal AA Sanklecha lbw b Vinay Kumar 1 6 6 0 0 16.66
102.4 the finger goes up after a bit of a delay and umpire Anil Chaudhary sends Sanklecha packing. It was fullish and angled in. He was coming forward and tried to work it towards midwicket, and so was playing across the ball, misses it altogether and strikes him on the back pad. Would have crashed into leg stump 302/9

View dismissal RV Uthappa c sub (RA Tripathi) b Mundhe 72 181 108 10 1 66.66
101.4 a catch has been taken, that too a good one! Uthappa's gone - he got a wide delivery on length outside off, chased and drove it half-heartedly on the up towards point where substitute fielder Tripathi went to his right to catch it 345/3
View dismissal KL Rahul c †Motwani b Mundhe 131 432 273 13 2 47.98
93.5 he's gone! Rahul has departed finally by giving a catch the keeper. It was short and wide, Rahul chased, looking to cut it and got the outside edge to Motwani who took the catch 318/2
View dismissal Ganesh Satish b Khurana 117 283 212 16 0 55.18
68.5 oh he's struck in the first over! That one kept low again - very similar to the first ball of the over. It pitched on length just outside off, was a tad quicker and went past Satish's edge to rattle the stumps as he went on the backfoot to defend. 230/1
View dismissal MK Pandey lbw b Fallah 36 89 66 4 0 54.54
113.5 this time he's gone! Fallah bowled from wide of the crease, it came in sharply from short of length, outside off, and surprised Pandey when it hit him on the pad in front of the stumps and the umpire's finger went up straightaway. That calls for drinks 380/4
View dismissal KK Nair c †Motwani b Khurana 44 188 118 4 0 37.28
146.2 a loud appeal for caught behind and the finger has gone up! Nair tried to reverse sweep this full delivery outside off, but the bat hit the ground at the same time when the ball went past it, so hard to confirm if it was out or not, and the umpire took his time for the decision. Six down for Karnataka 447/6
View dismissal CM Gautam c & b Fallah 7 27 19 1 0 36.84
119.5 that was lobbed back to the bowler! The ball stopped on Gautam as he looked to punch it back straight, easy take for Fallah, Karnataka lead by 89 with half their side down 394/5
View dismissal Amit Verma lbw b Fallah 29 122 102 3 1 28.43
151.2 and Fallah strikes straightaway! This one had reverse swing as it came in sharply from length outside off, Verma tried to work it on the leg ice but missed and was hit on the front pad for a loud appeal to follow and the umpire raised his finger straightaway even though the cll was very close about the ball hitting the pad in or outside the off stump line 461/7
View dismissal S Gopal c †Motwani b Sanklecha 10 57 45 2 0 22.22
160.5 and Sanklecha has struck! He has troubled Gopal outside the off stump and had been beating him, gets the outside edge this time with a length delivery just outside the off stump and Goapl pokes again and the keeper gets an easy catch 475/8
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar* run out (Khadiwale/†Motwani) 28 96 60 3 0 46.66
171.1 from Mundhe, and Vinay Kumar is run out! Thick outside edge went past first slip towards third man and Vinay wanted the second to keep the strike but an accurate throw from Khadiwale meant Vinay's dive was not enough to get back on time. No need to go to the third umpire 515/10
View dismissal A Mithun c †Motwani b Mundhe 16 47 26 2 0 61.53
169.3 Mundhe gets the outside edge! It was outside the off stump on length, Mithun went for an extravagant drive and edged it to the keeper for an easy catch 513/9
