Replying to South's total of 291, West could notch up 180/9 with one batsman hurt. Ravindra Jadeja (53), Rohit Sharma (41) and Dhiraj Jadhav (36) were the only batsmen who somehow faced South's mixed attack - the pace of Laxmipathy Balaji and S Sreesanth coupled with Kumble's menacing spin.
S Bahutule could not come to bat owing to injury. Sreesanth claimed three wickets and Balaji took one.
Earlier, South could add a mere 10 to their overnight score of 281/9. In the second innings, South were 65/2.
Zaheer Khan who scalped batsmen in the first innings took one in the second also.
One wicket was claimed by S Trivedi.
At stumps, V V S Laxman (12) and Y Venugopal Rao (26) were at the crease.
