Vadodara: An Impressive bowling display by Sumit Narwal (5-102) and Amit Mishra (3-108) put North Zone in a commanding position against West at the end of the third day's play in the semi-final of the Duleep Trophy cricket tournament here on Friday.

At stumps on day three, North were comfortably placed at 191 for three in their second innings, leading by 259 runs, with Mithun Manhas batting on 48 and Yashpal Singh unbeaten on eight.
