Manoj Tiwari certainly not holding back here, continuously going after the spinners, getting two back-to-back boundaries off Gohil. He rushes to 13 off just 12 balls.


We seem to be having a bit of an insect problem, as the authorities go around with an insect spray. 


WICKET! Gohil gets the breakthrough, K Bharat dismissed for 8, Gohil getting one to go with the arm, and Bharat completely misreads it. The ball goes onto clatter the middle stumps. Umpires check for a no-ball and Gohil's foot was clearly behind the crease. FIrst wicket for India Red!


A couple of quiet overs after the tea, as Washington Sundar and Gohlil start the proceedings in the final session. the ball is turning a bit, offering something for the spinners. India Blue will be hoping to keep the wickets intact here.


THAT"S DINNER! India Blue score 40 runs in the 12 overs in the second session. Bharat was found struggling against spin, while Easwaran fared slightly better. Spin will be a dominant force in the last session too.  


Another good over by Sundar. Hits Easwaran's pads twice. 35/0.


So spinners will dictate terms in this match. Time for another offie Akhil Herwadkar. No great bowling credentials, but could be handy on this deteriorating pitch. Gives away 10 runs. Its' 34/0.


Sundar gets a bowl. Pitches in the right areas to trouble the batsmen. Just two runs from the over. 21/0


Gohil giving nothing away. Just four runs from as many overs. 19/0 after seven overs.


Easwaran pulls one through the midwicket boundary off Kaul. Just rocks back into the crease and makes room to swing his arms. Kaul gives away five runs. It's 18/0.


Gohil keeping it tight in the following over. Bharat and Easwaran have not been able to pick up the off-spinner. Looks like a wicket is round the corner. 


Kaul bowling tight lines at the moment. Gives away just a couple of runs in his over. 11/0.


An excellent maiden by Gohil. Gets the ball to dip into the right-handers causing all sorts of trouble. Scores static at 9/0. 


Siddharth Kaul starts the proceedings from the other end. Swings the ball away from the batsmen. No real worry for the openers though. 9/0 after two.


Vijay Gohil takes the new ball for India Red. Starts getting purchase from the wicket in the first over itself. It's 8/0.  


India Red have put a decent total on the board on the pitch that has already started aiding the spinners. It's going to be a tough task for India Blue openers K Bharat and A Easwaran. 


WICKET! Unfortunate end of a brilliant innings from Washington Sundar. Falls for 88 after he mishits a ball to deep-cover. Bhargav Bhatt pockets the catch with ease. India Red finish their innings at 483.

With the last man at the crease, Sundar has just one way to go—to hit. He takes charge to Bhatt and scores 10 runs off his over. India Red reach 462/9.


WICKET! Another one bites the dust here. This time Bhatt gets into the act. Pitches the ball up, Dinda tries to sweep. The ball clearly misses the bat, but all players appeal. The umpire raises his finger in a split second. Bhatt gets his fourth. India Red 444-9.
