Vinay Kumar18.127133.90303000
65.5 to SS Neral, two balls outside, one ball in. Pokes at it and gets a thick edge to gully. Good, low catch.. 245/8
84.1 to AA Sarwate, the new ball has done the trick. The length is quite full, comes back in to hit him on the pad and this would've crashed into the stumps. Sarvate played for the one that nips away. That doesn't take anything away from what he's achieved, a gritty half-century to help stretch the lead close to 200 and give his side a fighting chance. That will also be lunch on Day four . 313/10
Abhimanyu Mithun1834712.61302000
59.2 to Ganesh Satish, they've got him with a bouncer. The big fish has been prised out.This is a skiddy bouncer angling in from wide of the crease, Satish shapes to hook but is clearly beaten for pace and only manages to get a top edge. Arvind at fine leg was underneath the delivery but had to be mindful of the delivery swirling away, but he kept his eyes on the ball and pouched it safely. Mithun roars and Karnataka are back in this. Satish's resistance is over, if ever someone deserved a wicket this morning, it was Mithun. Sensational stuff.. 224/6
Sreenath Aravind2355622.43491000
Stuart Binny1417435.28302100
58.1 to AV Wadkar, and he's struck with his first delivery. This is a very poor stroke from Wadkar, who gives catching practice to first slip. A poke at this away-going delivery and Karun Nair said 'thank you very much.' As easy as they come in the slips. This is a much-needed respite for Karnataka.. 222/5
60.1 to AA Wakhare, this is a sensational catching in the slips. Gosh, these guys can give their senior colleagues in the Indian team some catching lessons. Excellent from Samarth. Wakhare is drawn forward to play this outswinger, gets a thick edge and Samarth dives across to his left from second slip to take an excellent catch.. 228/7
Krishnappa Gowtham301204.0041000
Shreyas Gopal813514.37252100
73.6 to UT Yadav, googly has done the trick. Umesh stabs outside the line to get a thin inside edge onto the pad as this lobs to slip. There was a big gap between bat and pad, Umesh completely misread this. A handy ninth-wicket stand has come to an end.. 283/9

Umesh Yadav2036513.25889000
2.4 to MA Agarwal, the season's highest run-getter is gone and that's because of some excellent reflexes by Umesh on his followthrough. Agarwal looks to turn this length ball into the leg side but this one straightens to take the leading edge and Umesh does the rest. Big wicket upfront for Vidarbha. 7/1
Rajneesh Gurbani23.136872.931037100
31.6 to KK Nair, he's snuffed the big fish with an outswinger. Another poke, this time from Nair, and the keeper take a straightforward catch. Nair was drawn forward by the line, this one moved away late as he played away from the body. Karnataka are in trouble or what?. 81/4
33.2 to STR Binny, gone for a duck. Boy, Gurbani is bowling them into the final or what? This comes back in a long, long way in the air from outside off and cuts back in to strike him low on the pad. This is plumb in front of middle. Binny wasn't committing himself either forward nor back and has to pay the price.. 87/5
37.6 to CM Gautam, has he tickled this down leg? Yes, he has says umpire Paschim Pathak. Gautam can't believe that decision and hits the bat on his pad with disgust. Gautam now indicates to the umpire that it flicked the pad. Coming back to the delivery, this came back in a long way, Gautam looks to shuffle across to tickle this. Bat was close to the ball, in all fairness. Keeper collects and goes up spontaneously, everyone else joins in and boy, are they celebrating or what. 100/6
39.6 to K Gowtham, he's paid the price of missing the line of this delivery. Angled in towards off stump, hint of reverse in to beat Gowtham's forward push. He was looking to play across the line when he was better off playing straight. Paschim Pathak had no doubts whatsoever. What an inspired spell this is turning out to be. 104/7
49.6 to R Vinay Kumar, There's the five-for! First breakthrough of the day and it's the dangerous Vinay. Good length outside off and Vinay tries an expansive back-foot punch. But no feet movement, and takes the outside edge into the keeper's gloves. Karnataka eight down. 141/8
57.4 to A Mithun, and that's the ninth wicket! Full outside off and goes for the glory shot. Takes the top edge as he drives, and it's a skyer to deep point. What have you done, Mithun? He smacks his bat onto the ground as he walks out. 189/9
59.1 to S Aravind, Vidarbha are in the final of the Ranji Trophy! They reach the final for the very first time! Seven for Rajneesh Gurbani and there are #scenes at the Eden Gardens. Emotional moment for the bowler, who is on his knees. He's being congratulated by everyone. It was a fullish ball outside off that the batsman tried to play at, takes the outside edge and into gully's hands.. 192/10
Aditya Sarwate621402.33302000
Siddhesh Neral1043723.70476100
19.1 to R Samarth, he kept probing away around off and has been rewarded with the wicket of Samarth. This is an excellent in-dipper from length outside off, beats Samarth's tentative push to hit him plumb in front of middle. He made the mistake of playing outside the line, this one kept a touch low as well, so he was a dead duck. Umpire Paschim Pathak raised the finger even before the bowler could belt out a full-blooded appeal. Another big strike, they kept things quiet and have now prised out a second scalp.. 35/2
19.6 to D Nischal, this is a poor stroke, one that Nischal will regret for not sure how long. This is a very loose stroke. Reaching out to play a full delivery angling away, gets a healthy edge and the keeper does the rest. Those are the kind of deliveries, coaches would tell you to not even bother playing. Double-strike for Neral and Vidarbha are right back in this.. 40/3
