Mysuru: Ranji Trophy champions Karnataka defeated Bangladesh A by four wickets in a three-day tour match on Thursday, overhauling the victory target of 181.

Resuming at their overnight score of 188/3 with a lead of 59 runs, Bangladesh A folded up for 309 as left-arm spinner Jagadeesha Suchith sliced through the middle and lower order for a haul of six wickets.

It left Karnataka a target of 181 which they achieved despite a few hiccups, including the early loss of Ravikumar Samarth (1) and Robin Uthappa (3).

But CM Gautam (49, 35b, 10x4), Abhishek Reddy (36) and Shreyas Gopal (40 not out) ensured that the hosts survived to cross the finish line.

Earlier, the visitors put up a brave fight with some useful contributions from middle-order batsmen Soumya Sarkar (43), Nasir Hossain (44) and Shuvagata Hom (50 not out, 74b, 7x4, 1x6). But Suchith struck at crucial moments to dash the visitors' hopes.
