Karnataka-Mumbai Ranji final hangs in balance

Mysore:

Bowled out for a modest 233 in the first essay, Mumbai came out all guns blazing as they skittled out Karnataka for a paltry 130 in their first innings on the dramatic second day of the Ranji Trophy final at the Gangotri Glades.

However, having conceded a 103-run lead, Karnataka seamers hit back to have the Mumbaikars in a tizzy at 51 for five.

Abhishek Nayyar (batting 32) and Daval Kulkarni (batting 35) pulled the visitors out of woods, posting 57 runs for unbroken sixth-wicket.

At draw of stumps, Mumbai were 108 for five, leading by 211 runs, with five wickets remaining.

As many as 14 wickets tumbled in the absorbing contest between bat and ball today, with Avishkar Salvi, who produced his season's best figures of 5 for 31, and Abhimanyu Mithun producing outstanding spells with the cherry.
