The final day of Round 3 of the Ranji Trophy 2017-18 witnessed some nail-biting cricket across the nation. While the marquee clash between Mumbai and Tamil Nadu ended in a tame draw, games between Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, and Karnataka and Hyderabad went down to the wire. Quite a few Indian star players took field on day four, where we witnessed quite a wide-range of fortunes for them.

Shreyas Iyer: Iyer came out with a man on a mission. Losing Prithvi Shaw last evening, Iyer led Mumbai s charge against Tamil Nadu. His blitz ensured Mumbai gain the all-important lead. Iyer took 101 balls for his 100. He was unfortunately run out for 138.

Ravichandran Ashwin: Ashwin’s poor run off late continued as he struggled to dent Mumbai s march on day Four. He remained wicketless in 26 overs.

Ambati Rayudu: Trying to keep himself in foray for Team India, Rayudu could not make good use of his start. He battled hard for 94 balls before departing for 31 to Binny.

Stuart Binny: Once in running for an all-rounder spot with Team India, Binny has faded away from highs of national prominence. Brought in as relief bowler, he managed pick Rayudu s wicket. His figures read 4-1-4-1.

Karn Sharma: Karn is known for his leg-breaks, but today he shone with bat. His knock enabled Vidarbha close in Chhattisgarh s first-innings score of 489. He remained unbeaten on 52. He later grabbed 2 wickets in 15 overs.

Suresh Raina: The Uttar Pradesh skipper suffered another failure. He made just 5 in a 31- run defeat.

Umesh Yadav: Rested for India s limited-overs series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka, Yadav has been sweating it out in domestic circuit. He bowled his heart out to halt Chhattisgarh s march, snapping up three quick wickets in his short spell.
