Ranji Trophy 2016-17 is inching towards the knockouts stage. All teams are keen on notching up big wins to make it to the next stage. While Maharashtra suffered a heavy defeat against Odisha on day 2, they reduced their chances of going to the knockouts. The third day of the round 8 of Ranji Trophy 2016-17 saw Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh dominate the headlines.

Bengal showed up great resistance against Mumbai. At one stage, Bengal looked stuttering after having been bowled out for 99 in their first innings. Skipper Manoj Tiwary led the fightback with Sudip Chatterjee. Both batsmen scored tons to put up a 271 run stand and took Bengal to safety with 433/8 in their second innings.

The match between Vidarbha and Delhi was washed out on the third day and the rain gods did not let a single ball being bowled. Goa managed to beat Andhra in a low scoring affair at Dhanbad. Shadab Jakati emerged as the player of the match with figures of 8/53 and 3/70 in the two innings.
