Ranji Trophy: Karnataka 36/3 after skittling out Vidarbha for 185
Kolkata, Dec 17 (CRICKETNMORE) - Pacer Abhimanyu Mithun bagged his third five-wicket haul of the Ranji Trophy campaign as Vidarbha collapsed for a paltry 185 before Karnataka were reduced to 36/3 at the end of the first day's play in their semi-final at the Eden Gardens here on Sunday.
Karun Nair (6 batting) and CM Gautam (9 batting) were at the crease at stumps with Karnataka trailing by 149 runs. Play was called off 12 overs before the scheduled time due to bad light.
Promising pacer Rajneesh Gurbani (2/9) and India speedster Umesh Yadav (1/22) raised hopes of a comeback by shaving off the Karnataka top-order after Mithun returned figures of 5/45 with all his scalps coming in the second session.
