Welcome to Sportstar 's live coverage of the fourth day of the second round of the 2021-22 season of the Ranji Trophy.

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Kerala has won here at Rajkot, with Salman Nizar taking a single off Arzan Nagwaswalla. The man of the moment was at the other end, though. And what a knock it has been from Rohan Kunnummal (106 not out, 87b, 12x4, 6x3). Kerala, which has won by eight wickets, and Madhya Pradesh have 13 points each in Group A. Their clash, from March 3, will determine who will go through to the knock-out phase.

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Rohan Kunnummal has made history here at Rajkot. He became the first Kerala batter to make three First Class hundreds in as many innings. And this has been quite a remarkable hundred, which he completed by pulling Arzan Nagwaswalla for a six. He is also on the verge of taking Kerala to win against Gujarat. Kerala needs just 15 more runs. He is batting on 112 (84b, 11x4 3x6).

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: There you go. Tanush Kotian off the sixth ball of the last hour gets Amit Yadav caught at forward short-leg. Sachin Yadav doesn't miss many, anyway. Mumbai get 6 points. Cracker of a last round in store


Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Rohan Kunnummal and Sachin Baby seem determined to take Kerala to what could be a famous victory. Chasing 214, Kerala is 120 for one, from just 21 overs. Rohan, who scored hundreds in both his last innings, is on 63 (54b, 9x4, 1x6) and Baby on 41 (57b, 5x4, 1x6).

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: All that Solanki and Avasthi could get was one wicket each from the far end. While Mulani is back into the attack, Dhawal Kulkarni is persistent from the other end. A loud appeal was turned down in his previous over, he bowls an accurate bouncer to Pandrekar

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Pandrekar and Yadav have survived for more than 12 overs now. With 20 overs remaining, Mumbai would certainly be plagued with the demons of Unadkat and Sakariya at the same venue last Sunday. In a bid to seal the deal, Dhawal Kulkarni is brought back

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Mulani gets five - third successive innings and Mumbai is just a solitary wicket away from competing a remarkable victory. Shreekant Wagh edges him to Ajinkya Rahane. 80/9

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Eighth gone. Shams Mulani's arm ball is too good to handle for Garg. And it's tea time. Arjun Tendulkar blows the whistle as Mumbai's bench gives the team a rousing welcome. 66/8. See you in 20


Andhra vs Services | M. R. Praveen Chandran: Andhra 220/4 at tea and the captains have agreed to call off the match. The highlight of the final day had been Gnaneshwar's century. Ricky Bhui is the man of the match

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: At tea here in Rajkot, Kerala is 44 for one, with opener Rohan Kunnummal on 22 (24b) and captain Sachin Baby on six. Kerala needs to make another 170 runs in the final session, a tough ask.

Railways vs Pondicherry | Lalith Kalidas: Pondicherry and Railways have settled for a DRAW. The players have shaken hands with an outright result seeming impossible. Railways take three points with its first-innings lead while Pondicherry gets its first point in Group C.  Paras Dogra wins the Man of the Match award following two critical knocks of 107 and 64*.


TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: Bhatia once again playing a crucial hand. Unbeaten on 29. Chhattisgarh 121/5 at Tea. Not sure if the game has been called off or TN will try for sometime again in the last session.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: There goes the other Mumbai import. Mulani sneaks through Ranjane's defence as the ball crashes into the stumps. 55/7. Can Mumbai win with a margin bigger than the first innings it conceded? Still a possibility. Sarfaraz Khan has been on fire in the field. From doing a cartwheel to celebrating a wicket to getting into the head of Goa fielders with his chirping, he has been constantly at it. "Yeh Baga Beach pe aaya hai" is his latest jibe at the batters

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Kerala has lost its first wicket as it chases a daunting 214 for a win. P. Rahul is the man to go, trapped lbw by a ball that swung in from Chintan Gaja. Kerala needs another 187. Gujara’s second innings ended at 264, with Jalaj Saxena taking four for 57. Among the off-spinner’s victims were debutant Umang Kumar, who made a gritty 70 (175b, 8x4, 1x6) after coming in at 65 for four.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: In Tanush Kotian's next over, a huge appeal yet again. Umpire Kamlesh Sharma waits and waits and waits before raising his finger. Misal departs. 41/5. All-Mumbai affair now, with Ranjane and Eknath Kerkar at the crease

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Dhawal gets captain Kauthankar lbw. Yet another late decision by the umpire. Mumbai is definitely on the way to doing a Mumbai on Goa. 21/4 with 48 overs remaining.

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: I think we might have a 98 over day today. Drinks have been taken at 1 hour 15 mark, indicating a 2.5-hour session. Tea might be taken at 2.25 p.m. 2.45 to 4.15 will be the final session I think. Chhattisgarh 79 for 5. Need another 87 runs to make TN bat again.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: And now it's three down, thanks to a sensational catch by Sachin Yadav at silly-point. Opener Amogh Desai had cut it well but Yadav held on to the travelling ball neatly. He has been outstanding close-in right through the match. Mulani has 2, Goa 19/3

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Dhawal Kulkarni gives Mumbai the breakthrough as the umpire upholds an lbw appeal after a long time. Sumiran Amonkar is aghast, indicating that he had inside-edged it on to his pad. 9/1 . One becomes two. Suyash Prabhudessai was quite vocal during Mumbai's innings. He gets it back immediately upon arrival at the crease. The batter steps out, the ball turns and Tare whips the bails. Two down. Game on!

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Kerala has finally broken through here in Rajkot. Sijomon Joseph has just got rid of Karan Patel, who was looking for his second hundred of the match, when he was caught brilliantly by P. Rahul at slip. He was on 81 (150b, 9x4) and the sixth-wicket partnership with Umang Kumar (64 not out, 166b, 7x4 ,1x6) was worth 138. Gujarat 229 for six, a lead of 178.

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: WICKET !!! Aparajith on song here. Cleans up Ajay Mandal. The left-hander had no clue. 45/3

Karnataka vs J&K | S. Dinakar: Karnataka scored a 117-run win over a spirited Jammu & Kashmir, which made 390 in its second innings. Paceman Prasidh Krishna and leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal shared eight wickets between them. Off-spinner K. Gowtham took two wickets. Karnataka  gained six points for the outright win. Karun Nair, who made 175 and 71 not out, was adjudged Man of the Match. Prasidh finished with a match haul of 10 for 94.

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Gujarat has taken lunch at 221 for five, that’s lead of 170. The two men responsible for keeping their side in the game, Umang Kumar (63 not out, 163b, 7x4, 1x6) and Karan Patel (80, 144b, 9x4,) will return to the wicket after a taking well-earned break of 40 minutes (unless the team management decides to declare and give the bowlers the entire two sessions to get Kerala’s 10 second-innings wickets). Gujarat had resumed the final day at 128 for five.

Andhra vs Services | M. R. Praveen Chandran: Andhra 144/1 at lunch. Gnaneshwar batting on 94. Shaik Rasheed on 26.  Andhra lead by 190.

Railways vs Pondicherry | Lalith Kalidas: Amit Mishra strikes in his second spell of the morning. S Karthik nicks one to keeper Upendra Yadav. Pondicherry three down for 88 in 30.5 overs, trails Railways by 95 runs.

Karnataka vs J&K | S. Dinakar: Jammu & Kashmir,  pursuing 508, was 356 for seven with 30 minutes to go for lunch on day four. Earlier, skipper Ian Dev Singh, 110, and Abdul Samad, 70, added 143 for the fifth wicket. Off-spinner K. Gowtham, who end the partnership, picked up two wickets, while leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal scalped four.

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Umang Kumar has just completed a most valuable fifty on debut, stepping out and hitting left-arm spinner Sijomon Joseph for a six over long-on. His unfinished sixth-wicket stand with Karan Patel is now 121. Gujarat leads by 154 – a remarkable turnaround authored by these two men, who came together when their side was in deep trouble at 84 for five. Now the score is 205 for five, with Umang batting on 52 (142b, 6x4, 1x6) and Karan on 75 (135b, 9x4).

Saurashtra vs Odisha | Saurashtra beat Odisha by an innings and 131 runs to pocket seven points (bonus point for innings win). Dharmendrasinh Jadeja grabbed 7 for 88.

Bengal vs Hyderabad | Y. B. Sarangi: Lunch: Hyderabad 106/6 in 42 overs (Tilak Varma batting 52, Ravi Teja batting 12). With Bengal bowlers taking three wickets in the morning session, Hyderabad was struggling to save the match. Tilak applied himself very nicely to hold one end. He added 42 runs with Prateek Reddy (19). Shahbaz broke the partnership as Prateek was bowled in the left-arm spinner's second over. Akash Deep deviated the ball from the surface to claim his third wicket as Buddhi Rahul was caught behind.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: There's the declaration at 395/9, 26 overs into the day. That leaves Goa an enticing target of 232 runs off a minimum of 62 overs. Mumbai have only one aim, to wrap up the innings. Will Goa take the bait and go for the kill?

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Oh, did i jinx it? Kotian misses the landmark by 2 runs, caught in the slips off left-arm spinner Amulya Pandrekar. He may have missed the hundred but he has done the job. 98 off 163 (8x4, 1x6). Mumbai bat on

Tanush Kotian is dismissed after scoring 98.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: A cover drive and a pull in the same over off Amit Yadav takes Tanush Kotian to 95. Since then, he has expectedly been jittery, moving to 98. With the lead having crossed 220, don't be surprised if the declaration is timed with the century celebration

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: Sai Kishore has looked good so far in this spell. He has beaten the bat quite often. Turn and bounce, has been able to find the right length. Bit unlucky not to get a wicket so far. Chhatisgarh 27/1. It is lunch on the final day here at Guwahati. Chhattisgarh 35/1 in 13 overs in the second innings after being forced to follow on.

Karnataka vs J&K | K Gowtham strikes again. Ian Dev Singh's falls for 110. J&K 294/6, Karnataka four wickets away from an outright win.

Railways vs Pondicherry | Lalith Kalidas: Yuvraj Singh with the breakthrough for Railways. Neyan slashes a wide delivery straight to point. PDY 54/1, change in its order as S Karthik comes in at 3.

Karnataka vs J&K | K. Gowtham gets the breakthrough as Abdul Samad falls for 70 off 78 balls. J&K 276/5

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: Chhattisgarh has finally been bowled out. Aparajith took the last two wickets. TN has a lead of 166 runs and has enforced the follow-on. But skipper Harpreet Singh Bhatia and Veer Pratap Singh's 83-run stand has ensured Chhattisgarh will walk away with one point.

Andhra vs Services | M. R. Praveen Chandran: Andhra opening batters have negotiated the opening hour well. Gnaneshwar, after three failures, is closing on his fifty. He is on 47 and Girinath on 20 . Andhra 71/0. It leads Services by 117 runs.

Gujarat vs Kerala | P. K. Ajith Kumar: Gujarat has done well in the opening 45 minutes of the final day here in Rajkot. It has extended its lead to 110 without losing any more wickets. Umang Kumar (34 not out) and Karan Patel (49 not out) could take credit for this spirited fightback of Gujarat, which is now 161 for five, after resuming at 128 for five. Their partnership is worth 77 now, and Kerala should be worried.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: 10 overs into the day's play, a Mumbai reserve runs in with a message, oops water. With Mumbai having added 19 runs, the lead is now 177 with 80 overs remaining in the game. Remember, it's a must-win for both the teams to keep their KO chances alive. 341/8

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: WICKET!!!... Aparajith finally strikes.. removes Harpreet Singh Bhatia, who is out lbw. He goes for a sweep and misses it. 291/9. He has all but saved the match for his side.

Bengal vs Hyderabad | Y. B. Sarangi: Drinks break in the morning session: Two young men Tilak Varma (31) and Prateek Reddy (18) are trying to steady the boat after Hyderabad lost Himalay Agarwal who was bowled off the first ball of the day off Akash Deep. Akash, who had removed Akshath Reddy in the last delivery overnight, could not achieve his hat-trick but bowled with a lot of fire in cool and seaming conditions. Hyderabad 55/4 in 27 overs.

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: Chhattisgarh doing it nicely. They are 288/5. 182 behind. The lack of bounce means batters are able to play on the front foot with ease. Chhattisgarh gets to the Drinks break safely. At 291/8. 83-run stand for the 9th wicket. Bhatia looking good on 170.

Karnataka vs J&K | Abdul Samad has lit up the IIT Chemplast ground with his powerhitting. Races to his fifty with a six off Shreyas Gopal. He has struck five maximums and three fours. Ian Chauhan is nearing his hundred. J&K need another 272 for what can be best described as a historic win.

Saurashtra vs Goa | Odisha are currently five down for 136, still trailing Saurashtra's massive first-innings score of 501 by 200 runs. Rajesh Dhuper and Abhishek Raut are at the crease.

Railways vs Pondicherry | Lalith Kalidas: Interesting to note that Railways has opted the left-arm spin of Akash Pandey from one end to complement seamer Mishra. On a hard deck in the first innings, Yuvraj Singh had done enough with the new ball to trouble a shaky Aravind in his first spell. As we speak, Pandey fires in a quicker one that thuds Aravind's pads but misses leg.

Mumbai vs Goa | Amol Karhadkar: Welcome to Day 4. 1st over: Shams Mulani taps Shubham Ranjane on the on-side for a single to complete his 50. 2nd over: Lakshay Garg, with the shiny ball, manages a nick off Mulani's edge to Amogh Desai at second slip. 324/8. Lead of 160. Every Goa huddle ends with a player chanting "Three, Two, One" before the others join in chorus "Goa". In the last 10 minutes, we have heard "three, two, one... Goa" twice, before the start of play and after Mulani's wicket. Kotian & Avasthi in for Mumbai.

Karnataka vs J&K | After an inspiring riposte on day 3, following an initial meltdown, J&K batters Abdul Samad and Ian Chauhan are now trying to put the Karnataka bowlers under pressure. Samad has raced to 41 off just 43 balls with three fours and four sixes. Meanwhile, Chauhan is nearing his 100. J&K 219/4.

Railways vs Pondicherry | Lalith Kalidas: Update: Railways has declared at 525/9 with a 183-run lead. Pondicherry to begin its second innings in an early 9:15am start, with a min. of 90 overs in the day. Pondicherry openers Neyan Kangayan and Aravind K walk out to the middle. Amit Mishra takes the new ball for Railways.

Pondicherry players limbering up ahead of the start of the final day's play against Railways.

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: Harpreet Bhatia gets to his 150 with a single to covers. Sandeep Warrier has 5 balls to Veer Pratap now. The leader of the attack needs to deliver. He has been erratic and given easy boundaries.

Railways vs Pondicherry | Lalith Kalidas: Good morning from Guru Nanak college. We enter the final day with Railways sitting pretty on a 183-run first innings lead (3 points in the bag atm). Focus will be on its seam trio -  Amit, Yuvraj and Rahul - as Pondicherry braces for a tough day out in the field.

Action will resume 15 minutes early on the final day to ensure all 90 overs can be bowled.

TN vs Chhatisgarh | S. Dipak Ragav: Good morning from Guwahati. We may have the first on-time start of this encounter between TN and Chhatisgarh on the final day. No overnight rains. TN needs 2 wickets to take the first innings lead and then press ahead for a big win. Chhattisgarh is almost 220 runs behind.

The Tamil Nadu vs Chhatisgarh match got underway at 8:45 am with weather staying clear for the first time in four days.


The fourth day of the second round of India's premier red-ball competition begins today.

All 38 teams will be in action, including defending champion Saurashtra, which squares off against Odisha in Ahmedabad. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane will once again be in action. They will be keen on extending their form from last game.

In another clash, Tamil Nadu, the Vijay Hazare Trophy runner-up, will play Chhattisgarh in Guwahati.
