Karnataka plundered heavy runs against Bengal at Mysore on the third day to end up with 523 for 9. Overnight batsmen KB Pawan (134) and Amit Verma (157) got past their respective centuries today. Wicket Keeper CM Gautam joined the party as well to score an unbeaten 108. For the hapless Bengal, off spinner Sourasish Lahiri toiled hard to take a five-wicket haul in 45 overs. This match is now all about Karnataka taking three points with a draw or getting five points with an outright victory on the fourth day by bowling out Bengal.
