Rajasthan got a fine start from in-form openers Gagan Khoda and Vineet Saxena, who put up a 92-run opening partnership. Khoda was the first to go, out for 60. The next eight wickets fell for 75 runs, with Kartik dismissing six of the batsmen. The spinner's figures at the end of the day read: 34-13-57-6.
In Indore, Madhya Pradesh, resuming from 246/5, were bowled out for 315. Nikhil Patwardhan, unbeaten overnight, added only one run to his personal score, but his partner, captain Sulakshan Kulkarni, made 60, adding bulk to his team's total and ensuring it crossed the 300-run mark. For Uttar Pradesh, Nikhil Chopra picked up four wickets.
Uttar Pradesh benefited from a solid opening stand of 78, but wickets fell after that and, at the close of play, five wickets had fallen for 164. Rizwan Shamshad, not out on a patient 35, and Nikhil Chopra, making an even more patient six off 41 balls, were at the crease at stumps.
