Parthiv Patel struck a mammoth 189- his fourth fifty-plus score in the tournament- which was instrumental in Gujarat securing a first-innings lead over Jharkhand in Jamshedpur.

His overnight partner Samit Gohel produced a patient 80, as the duo added 185 runs for the third wicket, but the rest of the batting line-up was not quite as potent. Parthiv struck 19 fours in his innings as he shepherded the lower order, and was finally the last man out before the declaration. Akshar Patel hung around long enough to put on a half-century partnership for sixth wicket with Parthiv. Samar Quadri, the legspinner, picked up four wickets including that of Parthiv's.

Jharkhand's second essay got off to a slow start, as Bhavin Thakkar had to return to the pavilion retired hurt. Rameez Nemat dropped anchor to ensure Jharkhand endured no further casualties.

Odisha 169 for 4 (Samantray 50*, Mallick 47*, HS Sharath 3-41) and 226 lead Karnataka 379 (Pandey 132, Mithun 43) by 16 runs
Scorecard

Karnataka's strength at the start of the day was somewhat relinquished as starting the day at 288 for 4, their remaining batsmen could manage only 91 runs. Odisha were jolted at the top but their middle-order, led by the captain Biplab Samantray who compiled his second fifty in as many matches, helped the team set up a slim lead.

Karnataka's overnight batsmen Manish Pandey, who was on 108, and CM Gautam were knocked over early by Suryakant Pradhan, but A 48-ball 43 from Abhimanyu Mithun recovered the lost momentum as he made his way to 43, with six fours and a six.

Mithun and HS Sharath then had Odisha in some trouble early on. Odisha lost opener Girija Rout in the first over and their recovery efforts came up lacking. At 75 for 4, Samantray and first-innings top-scorer Abhilash Mallick came together and their unbeaten 95-run partnership for the fifth wicket helped them recover. The 22-year old Mallick missed out on his maiden first-class ton in the first innings by two runs, but having already scored 47 in the second, he has another chance to reach three figures on Sunday.

Vidarbha 113 and 177 for 8 (Shrivastava 69) need another 353 runs to beat Mumbai 261 and 381 for 4 dec (Tare 172, Rahane 133)
Scorecard

Mumbai were on the brink of registering a huge win in their maiden Ranji Trophy clash against Vidarbha. At the end of the penultimate day's play, chasing an improbable target of 530, Vidarbha were 177 for 8 at Wankhede Stadium.
