Day 3 Round-up: After dominating Australia, Cheteshwar Pujara was back doing what he does best. He blunted the Karnataka bowling attack and then broke free to score his 49th first-class century. Sheldon Jackson gave him good company as they stitched together a 201-run stand for the fourth-wicket to help Saurashtra reach 224/3 at the close of play. They now need only 55 runs to clinch the match and meet Vidarbha in the finals.
