Bangalore:Forced to follow on, Tamil Nadu were precariously placed, losing three wickets for 130 in the second innings and still needing 89 runs against Karnataka at the end of the third day's play in a sixth round Elite 'A' group Ranji Trophy match here today.

At stumps, skipper Badrinath (46) and Hemang Badani (six) were at the crease, with the visitors facing certain defeat.

Chasing a huge Karnataka first innings knock of 426, Tamil Nadu were bundled out for only 207, with left arm spinner Sunil Joshi (4/53) and M P Appanna (3/39) devastating the Tamil Nadu batsmen, among whom opener M Vijay scared a debiant 48 runs.

However, in the second knock too, the visitors failed, losing three wickets before the stumps were drawn. R Prasanna scored a valiant 59 before he was trapped leg before by Appanna.
