Tamil Nadu had a disappointing outing in the first innings, being bowled out for 151 in reply to Karnataka’s 366. However, they still have a chance to win the match if they can score 319 runs in the final day.

Despite some luck (umpire’s error, dropped catch, no-ball dismissal), Tamil Nadu succumbed to the pressure, leaving them with a daunting task of chasing 367 on a turning track. Karnataka now holds the upper hand, needing just three more wickets to put themselves in a commanding position.

Earlier, Tamil Nadu bowlers started the day positively. Opting for spin early, they dismissed Padikkal cheaply through part-timer Pradosh Ranjan Paul. However, Karnataka’s lower order, led by Hardik Raj’s fifty and valuable contributions from wicketkeeper Sharath and Shashi, added crucial runs, pushing the total beyond 350.

With two days remaining, the match hangs in the balance. Can Tamil Nadu stage a fightback or will Karnataka capitalize on their advantage and secure a vital first-innings lead? These two days promise an enthralling contest between two strong contenders for the Ranji Trophy title.
