Having already retained the title by virtue of their huge first innings lead, defending champions Karnataka are now looking to post an outright win over Tamil Nadu after reducing them to 113 for three in their second essay on day four of Ranji Trophy cricket final on Wednesday.
Karnataka posted a massive total of 762 in their first innings after bundling out Tamil Nadu for a paltry 134.
At stumps on the penultimate day, Tamil Nadu were struggling in their second innings, still trailing the title holders by a huge 515 runs with seven wickets remaining.
Now even if the match ends in a draw, which is one of the only two possible outcomes, Karnataka would retained the Ranji Trophy title at the Wankhede stadium.
Resuming at an overnight score of 618 for seven on Wednesday, Karnataka added 144 more runs to their total.
Batting since post-tea on the opening day, Karnataka piled on runs as their innings lasted 1044 minutes.
The defending champions lost their triple centurion Karun Nair (328) in the first session today but skipper R Vinay Kumar (105) slammed his second Ranji century to guide the team to a mammoth 762.
