Hello! Welcome everyone to CricketCountry’s coverage of the second day of the three-day game between Karnataka and Bangladesh A. I am Nikhil Popat and I will be bringing you the updates from the game today. Bangladesh A had a day to forget as their batsmen failed to turn up again after they won the toss and elected to bat first. It was only due to the fifties from Litton Das and Shuvagata Hom that got them to 158. Karnataka were in a spot of bother when Saqlain Sajib and Hom taking three wickets each. Shishir Bhavane’s grit saw Karnataka get into a slender lead and the hosts will want to build on it today. Let’ see how things pan out. Catch all the live cricket scores and updates here.
