There were four spots up for grabs before the last round of matches and some interesting events unfolded.
HIGHLIGHTS | Ranji Trophy Round 7 Day 5
Mumbai and Maharashtra vied for a spot and a first innings lead would have been enough for either side. The teams tied in the first innings to allow Andhra to squeeze into the knockouts. Andhra had won with a bonus point against Assam and finished second with more bonus points than Maharashtra.
Kerala missed out on a spot after it failed to defeat Pondicherry. The team had the chance to make it after Rajasthan and Jharkhand lost their fixtures.
Here are the teams which have qualified for the last eight stage from each group:
Elite Group A: Bengal and Uttarakhand
Elite Group B: Saurashtra and Andhra
Elite Group C: Karnataka and Jharkhand
Elite Group D: Madhya Pradesh and Punjab
