TNI Bureau: Despite a strong fightback, Odisha finds itself in deep trouble against Karnataka in the Ranji Trophy match in Bangalore. In reply to Odisha’s 202, Karnataka bundled out for 213.
Karnataka put the Odisha batsmen on the mat in the dying moments of the match, as Sandeep Mulia and Niranjan Behera were out cheaply. Vinay Kumar took both wickets. At stumps, Odisha finished at 30/2.
Skipper Natraj Behera is reportedly ill. So, that could be a disaster for Odisha, as they struggle against the genuine Karnataka pace attack.
