Ranji Trophy Quarterfinals, Day 3 LIVE Score Updates: UP needs 213 to win vs Karnataka, Shubham Sharma departs for 102

Welcome to Sportstar‘s LIVE coverage of Day 3 of the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals in Bengaluru.


Punjab vs Madhya Pradesh | Rajat Patidar continues his scorching form with his FIFTH 50-plus score in five innings this Ranji Trophy season! MP 290/4 in 112 overs.

Karnataka vs UP | BR Sharath is back. The rulebook states a wicketkeeper, although not in the 15, can be subbed.

Mumbai vs Uttarakhand | Here’s Amol: After Tushar Deshpande and Dhawal Kulkarni’s fiery spells, left-arm spinner Shams Mulani is introduced into the attack. The highest wicket-taker of the season is welcomed by Robin Bist with a six over long-off. The old pro is not only looking at his best but also constantly into Kamal Singh’s ears. 66/3

Karnataka vs UP | BR Sharath replaces wicketkeeper S Sharath as the latter seems to have dislocated his thumb while trying to take a catch. We will keep you updated. Oops! Seems like BR Sharath isn’t a part of the 15. Skipper Manish Pandey will be donning the gloves. The lack of a specialist wicketkeeper will hurt Karnataka. Devdutt Padikkal comes on as sub.

Bengal vs Jharkhand | Dhruva texts: Heartbreak for Manoj Tiwary, as he slashes straight to extra cover for 73. Bengal 613/6. No signs of a declaration yet.

Mumbai vs Uttarakhand | Amol: All eyes will be on Alur 1 but it’s been an action-packed half hour at Alur 2. A wicket off his first ball of the day for Dhawal Kulkarni and Tushar Deshpande loses out on a wicket due to his tendency of overstepping. U’khand 42/3


Karnataka vs UP | Here’s Ashwin: As expected, UP picks up the last two wickets in quick time. The target is easily achievable, but given how both teams have lacked patience and discipline, you can assume that Karnataka is favourite.

STAT: This is Karnataka’s lowest-ever score against Uttar Pradesh.

Punjab vs Madhya Pradesh | Lalith: Positive start to the day for Punjab. Siddarth Kaul cleans up centurion Shubham Sharma in the first over of the day for his overnight score of 102. MP 243/3 in 99.5 overs.

Bengal vs Jharkhand | Dhruva tweets: A sunny morning welcomes day three at the Just Cricket Academy. Manoj Tiwary will be gunning for his hundred before Bengal decides to declare. Meanwhile, Saurabh Tiwary is back on the field after sitting out the whole of day two.


Karnataka vs UP | Ronit More departs for a golden duck. Yash Dayal got this to angle away from the right-handed batter and ‘keeper Dhruv Jurel dives to his right to take an excellent catch. Karnataka 105/9 in 34.4 overs.


1. Bengal 577 for 5 in 178 overs (Tiwary 54*, Shahbaz 7*) vs Jharkhand.

2. Madhya Pradesh 238 for 2 in 99 overs (Shubham 102*, Patidar 20*) vs Punjab. MP leads by 19 runs.

3. Uttarakhand 39 for 2 in 11 overs (Kamal 27*, Chandela 8*) vs Mumbai. Uttarakhand trails by 608 runs.

4. Karnataka 100 for 8 in 34 overs (Sharath 10*) vs Uttar Pradesh. Karnataka leads by 198 runs.

Bengal would be in no mood to declare soon as it walks into Day 3 with 577 for five on the board and Manoj Tiwary and Shahbaz Ahmed at the crease.

Meanwhile, Shubham Sharma (batting on 102) and Himanshu Mantri executed Madhya Pradesh’s plan to perfection and guided their team to seize a lead against Punjab on the second day of the Ranji Trophy quarterfinals. Two down, MP’s Rajat Patidar and Shubham will plan to build on the slender lead of 19 on Wednesday.

Uttarakhand finds itself in a tight spot after Sudev Parkar’s record-breaking double century on debut. Trailing by 608 runs, it is already two men down.

Karnataka lost wickets in a heap to slip to 100 for 8. Uttar Pradesh, clearly the happier side of the two, sauntered out at Stumps on Day 2 knowing they’ll likely have to chase only a little over 200 to win.
