Vinay-Gautam lead late surge by Karnataka

Skipper Vinay Kumar along with CM Gautam led a late resurgence in the Karnataka batting against Uttar Pradesh in the Ranji Trophy Super League encounter here today at Kanpur. Vinay and Gautam combined well to dole out Karnataka as the top order again failed to live upto their expectation. Battling at 151/6, with stars like Robin Uthappa (4), Manish Pandey (36) failing to lift the team score, Vinay-Gautam duo eked out a 92-run partnership for the seventh wicket before Vinay returned for a well made 51 off 94 deliveries with 9 hits to the fence. Amit Verma (54) was also instrumental in holding one end but it was Gautam (62 not out) who was resolute in his unbeaten innings and guided Karnataka to a safer 274/7 at stumps on day 1. With the recovery coming from unexpected corners, it is now left to the bowlers to double up the workload to force a first innings lead.

In another clash of the titans, Delhi skittled out Mumbai for a paltry 267 on day one. However, Delhi, in reply, was already reeling at 47/2 with star Challenger Virat Kohli falling for 5 only. Skipper Wasim Jaffer made 32 for Mumbai.
