It’s stumps on Day Three and once again, Karnataka are on the frontfoot. They still have a lead of 291 runs and need just seven wickets to win the Irani Trophy with two more days to go. Superb performance led by Vinay Kumar who struck twice early on. Catch the stumps report here.
Baba Aparajith and Dinesh Karthik are watchful as day end is close by. Aparajith looking steady and has played some crisp cut shots.
Shreays Gopal removes Kedar Jadhav, who was looking dangerous.
OUT! K Jadhav 44(65)
Rest of India batsmen look to have taken control of the situation after 26 overs.
Baba Aparajith edged a delivery off Stuart Binny but falls short of Karnataka wicketkeeper CM Gautam
Baba Aparajith pushes a delivery off Stuart Binny towards the third-man for a four.
Jadhav almost got himself run out, while taking a quick single off Mithun’s bowling. Vinay Kumar was the fielder.
The Karnataka bowlers are not giving any chance for the Rest of India batsmen to score.

It’s Tea on Day Three and Rest of India are tottering at 32 for two

Gone, Gautam Gabhir hit two beautiful drives for a boundary and this time tries to glide the ball and is caught brilliantly by Manish Pandey in the slips. Typical Gambhir dismissal.
OUT! G Gambhir 9(8)


Pankaj Singh gets a six-for as centurion CM Gautam is dismissed for 122 and finishes the innings with the wicket of HS Sharath. Karnataka have scored 600 with a 405-run lead. 300 First-Class wickets for Pankaj Singh.
OUT! CM Gautam 122(168), HS Sharath 0(2)
Karnataka have batted Rest of India out of the game with close to 400-run lead. Mithun has smashed Dinda for two boundaries and a six in an over.
Gone, Pankaj Singh gets a wicket in his first over post lunch. Gopal edges one to Karthik behind the wickets. Regulation catch for the keeper. Abhimanyu Mithun, a handy batsman now adding to the frustration of the bowlers throwing his bat around. He even smashed a straight drive off Ashoke Dinda.
OUT! S Gopal 16(34)
It’s lunch on Day Three and Gautam has done well to complete his century before the break. Catch the lunch report here.
CM Gautam playing at will. The reverse swees have baffled the Rest of India bowlers as he moves in to the 90s. A frustrated Harbhajan brings on Mandeep Singh on to bowl. He almost trapped Gautam leg-before but he was bowling round the wicket and the ball might just have pitched outside leg-stump.
The 88-run partnership comes to an end as Vinay Kumar is caught playing down the leg-side off Amit Mishra. Sharp catch by Karthik. The lead is inching closer to 300 now.
OUT! V Kumar 31(54)
Rest of India bowlers just going through the motions while Karnataka are making merry by piling on runs. A well-compiled half-century for Gautam while Kumar is showing his skills with the bat by stitching a good partnership.
Fifty partnership comes up between Gautam and Kumar. This is the fifth 50-plus partnership of the innings. Shows the domination of the batsmen. The lead too has gone beyond 250. Both the batsmen are reading the ball well as the bounce has been low and the spinners have been deceptive as well.
CM Gautam and Vinay Kumar are frustrating the bowlers with some big hits and adding on to the huge lead.
Gone, a fine knock comes to an end as Pankaj sets up Binny for the short ball and then foxes him with a back of length delivery which sneaked through the gates, took a faint deflection from the pads and knocked down the stumps. He had used this ploy earlier but it had failed. Pankaj and Anureet Singh began the proceedings. The field placement was set up for a short ball in the first over of the day but Pankaj delivered one outside off-stump and he guides it calmly past gully for a four. Easy runs. Anureet beats Binny in the following over, it’s a maiden. 400 comes up for Karnataka in the third over of the day.
OUT! S Binny 122(122)

Hello and welcome to the live updates of Day Three of the Irani Trophy match between Karnataka and Rest of India. I am Abhijit Banare, and I will be bringing the live updates of the match. The hosts Karnataka once again dominated for the second day. The Rest of India could have fought back after the dismissal of the fourth wicket, but Stuart Binny who walked in completely changed the game and the match is heavily tilted towards Karnataka. His century in 82 balls demoralised the Rest of India bowlers. He is unbeaten on 115 along with CM Gautam. Pankaj Singh was the only impressive bowler on the second day using the swing to great extent. Catch the Day Two Highlights Here.

Rest of India (ROI) would need an inspired effort to come back into the game as the Karnataka batsmen have setup a good base for a victory for the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 champions.
