Udit stars with the ball too

After his successful sojourn with the bat, Udit Patel today spun his web around Uttar Pradesh to hand over a 97 runs lead for Karnataka in the first innings. Patel took 3/92 to emerge the highest wicket-taker for Karnataka as UP was skittled out for 319 in reply to Karnataka's first innings total of 416. Bhuvenshwar Kumar scored 62 while Piyush Chawla made 102 for UP but still couldn't save UP from conceding the first innings lead.

Robin Uthappa then used his long handle well enough to punch a 83-ball 67 to take Karnataka to 178/2 at the end of the third day. Karnataka now leads by 275 runs and it now remains to be seen whether skipper Vinay Kumar pushes the button to go for an outright victory on the last day. But with Karnataka already making it to the quarters, it is highly unlikely that Vinay Kumar would lose the opportunity to provide much needed batting practice to the top order.
