Bangalore: Pakistan set an improbable 370-run target stumbled to 162/7 before bad light forced an early close and a draw on the final day of the third and final Test against India at Chinnaswami Stadium, Bangalore on Wednesday.

Kumble (5/60) ripped thro' the Pak top-order while Yuvraj accounted for the dangerman Misbah and Arafat on a pitch which assisted the spinners.

Earlier Saurav Ganguly and Dinesh Karthik virtually assured India of a series win as their team set visitors a stiff target of 374 from 48 overs.

Ganguly, the man possessed, was unlucky enough to miss out on record of scoring a double ton and a hundred, getting out for 91 and Karthik scored a brisk 52 before hosts declared their second essay at 284/6 just before tea.

India won the opening Test by six wickets in New Delhi and drew the second in Kolkata.

Brief Scores:

India 626 and 284/6 decl (Ganguly 91, Karthik 52; Arafat 2 for 49, Sami 2 for 63) drew with Pakistan 537 and 162/7 (Faisal 51, Yaisr Hameed 39, Misbah 37; Kumble 5 for 60, Yuvraj 2 for 9)
