Uttar Pradesh batsmen dominate proceedings against Karnataka

Bhuvneshwar played a perfect foil to his partner scoring at a strike rate of just below 36. However, like Parvinder, Bhuvneshwar also didn't spare anything short or wide as he stroked 13 hits to the fence before being stumped by Robin Uthappa off Krishnappa Gowtham.

Meerut: Parvinder Singh struck an unbeaten century while Bhuvneshwar Kumar missed out on three-figure mark by nine runs as Uttar Pradesh extended their overall lead to a massive 445 runs against a tooth-less Karnataka attack in their Ranji Trophy Group B match, on Monday.

The duo added 230 runs for the fifth wicket to rescue their team from a precarious 88 for four and ended the third day at a strong 343 for five.

Having combined together at the fall of Mohammad Kaif's wicket early on Monday, the duo showed great determination to not let Karnataka bowlers dominate the proceedings.
