Vinay Kumar30.168132.6814212000
8.4 to HH Khadiwale, 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
102.4 to AA Sanklecha, 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
104.1 to AA Darekar, 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
Abhimanyu Mithun2384932.131228003
30.5 to KM Jadhav, 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
72.1 to RH Motwani, 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
91.1 to AR Bawne, 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
Sreenath Aravind2666532.501248002
16.5 to VH Zol, 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
99.5 to SS Mundhe, 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
101.1 to SD Atitkar, 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
Manish Pandey10202.0040000
Shreyas Gopal1305404.15455000
Karun Nair512114.20172000
49.6 to CG Khurana, 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

Samad Fallah3789332.5117811005
113.5 to MK Pandey, 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
119.5 to CM Gautam, 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
151.2 to Amit Verma, 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
Anupam Sanklecha3078312.7613712000
160.5 to S Gopal, 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
Akshay Darekar28.5410803.7412112203
Shrikant Mundhe31.159032.8813910031
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. 14/0
93.5 to KL Rahul, 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
101.4 to RV Uthappa, 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
169.3 to A Mithun, 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
Chirag Khurana39.11011022.801759200
68.5 to Ganesh Satish, 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
146.2 to KK Nair, 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

Vinay Kumar29111644.0010010130
2.5 to HH Khadiwale, too much aggression costs Maharashtra! Khadiwale got a short ball from Vinay, he pulls but doesn't middle it well and it goes into the hands of Ganesh Satish at midwicket. 18/1
15.1 to VH Zol, and he strikes straightaway! The batsman is unhappy with the decision but he has to walk back. It was well outside off and Zol tried to cut it to third man but only got an outside edge (it seems) and the umpire took a bit of time to raise the finger. 54/2
63.5 to CG Khurana, and when he connects the full toss, he's given a catch to cover. He wanted to whip it on the leg side but top edged it in the air and cover ran in for an easy catch. The umpires are checking for the height of the full toss and have raised the finger. 262/5
65.4 to KM Jadhav, another wicket off a full toss - this time it's Jadhav! It was way outside the off stump, Jadhav went hard at it, trying to capitalise on the juicy full toss, but gave it straight into the hands of Uthappa. 268/6
Abhimanyu Mithun2217723.50827020
78.5 to RH Motwani, what a catch! Motwani drove at this length ball outside off, the thick outside edge was going away from the keeper CM Gautam, but he leapt to his left to take a spectacular single-handed catch. 307/7
84.5 to AA Sanklecha, that's gone high and taken easily. Mithun pitched it up and Sanklecha flicked it in the air on the leg side, in flamingo style, and it went high up and Karun Nair had enough time to take the easy catch at mid-on. 338/8

Manish Pandey201407.0071020
Shreyas Gopal13.214743.52431000
41.4 to AR Bawne, and the stand is broken by Gopal! Bawne came down the track yet again but missed the ball this time and the keeper simply whipped the stumps out of their grooves. Bawne could only look back and see it happen. 172/3
43.3 to SD Atitkar, Gopal strikes again! He pitched it outside leg in the rough, Atitkar goes for a wild sweep and only gets a top edge high in the air and short fine leg takes an easy catch. Maharashtra's aggressive approach is costing them. 174/4
89.4 to AA Darekar, that's gone high in the air and that's the ninth wicket. It was pitched up outside off and Darekar went for the lofted short but didn't get the distance and was caught easily at long-off. 362/9
91.2 to SS Mundhe, and that's the end for Maharashtra! Mundhe came down the track outside the leg stump to tonk this one out of the ground but could not connect and Gautam did the rest to take the bails off, oh wait but there was an edge too so he is judged caught behind by CM Gautam. 366/10

15.2 to RV Uthappa, appeal for a catch and the umpire raises his finger! Uthappa wanted to paddle sweep the ball which pitched outside leg, but Uthappa played a bit early and the ball took the top edge near the sticker of the bat and went behind the keeper on the leg side where first slip moved across for the catch. They are checking for the no ball but he's safe. 65/1
Chirag Khurana8.505316.00336300
29.3 to Amit Verma, that is a spectacular catch from the bowler. Verma jumped out of his crease and drilled the ball flat and hard towards the bowler's right. Khurana stayed balanced in his follow through and caught it far away from his body with both hands. That ball was travelling. Tea is being taken, we'll be back in 20 minutes to bring you Karnataka's progress on the home stretch to the Ranji Trophy title. 120/3
Shrikant Mundhe812012.50382001
