Nair (55) was out off the last ball of the day even as Vihari (65 batting, 123 balls) looked solid at the other end.

They now need 107 runs on the final day with seven wickets in hand. The Nair-Vihari pair added 136 runs for the third wicket to lay the foundation of what could be a praiseworthy victory after being bowled out for 192 in the first innings.

India's new ball bowlers (4/64) and Rajneesh Gurbani (3/64) did most of the damage while (67) and (61) scored half centuries.

Brief Scores: 302 and 210 (67, 61, 4/64, R Gurbani 3/64)
