Pratham Singh (92 off 94 balls) looked formidable with the bat, but he fell to Warrier.

With the hosts enforcing the follow-on, things went from bad to worse for Railways, as it could manage just 114 in their second essay.

Pratham (29) top-scored again for the visitors. But Sai Kishore (4/43) and fellow left-arm spinner Ajith Ram (4/40) mopped up their batting unit.

In another Group C meeting at Mysore, tons from Mayank Agarwal (114), Devdutt Padikkal (103) and Nikin Jose (107) put Karnataka in the driver's seat against Goa.
