The third day of the 2023 Duleep Trophy Final got underway on July 14 at Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium in Bangalore. West Zone experienced a dramatic batting collapse as they failed to capitalize on the incredible start that they got on day two. Apart from the top three batters, none of the batters looked to apply themselves on this pitch.

The West could only add a further 22 runs before being bundled out cheaply for 146. A staggering seven batters from West Zone fell to Vidwath Kaverappa, and ended up with a single-digit score. Decent contributions were made by Vasuki Koushik and Vijaykumar Vyshak who shared three wickets between them.

When South Zone came on to bat, they were severely jolted by two quick wickets inside the first five overs reducing them to 8-2. Then a steady partnership between Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari ensued as the duo added 64 runs for the third wicket. Mayank Agarwal was eventually dismissed for 35. Hanuma Vihari batted right through to expand the lead further.

But his innings was cut short as Atit Sheth dismissed him for 42. Ricky Bhui and Sachin Baby carried the innings forward notching up respectable scores of 37 (69) and 28 (55) respectively. Despite losing a few quick wickets in the closing hours of play, South Zone ended the day on a high with a staggering lead of 248 runs.
