Assam vs Mizoram: Drinks have been called for with Mizoram at 137/6 in 37 overs. With 206 runs still required, the side has a long way to go. Assam shouldn't face much trouble in wrapping this game up in its favour.

J & K vs Chandigarh: Jammu and Kashmir has dashed Chandigarh's hopes of a 'direct' qualification with a thrilling victory! The eight-wicket defeat has additionally guaranteed Saurashtra of a QF spot, irrespective of its result today against Services.

Himachal vs Mumbai: After Mayank Dagar scores 23 runs from the 24th over - the most expensive, thus far, in this game - Vaibhav Arora loses his wicket off the first ball of the 25th. Mumbai, unbeaten in the league stage, has earned itself a much-deserved berth in the Vijay Hazare quarterfinal!

J & K vs Chandigarh: J & K is marching towards an emphatic victory, thanks to game-changing knocks from Shubham Khajuria (120, 86b, 15x4, 5x6) and Henan Nazir, who is fast approaching a century! Less than 25 runs to get now with eight wickets remaining. J & K 221/2 in 31.3 overs.


Innings progression worms for J & K vs Chandigarh   -  BCCI


Himachal vs Mumbai: Captain Shreyas Iyer drops one but doesn't commit another error later on in the over when the second opportunity rises. MUMBAI, NOW, IS JUST ONE WICKET AWAY FROM SEALING A QUARTERFINAL BERTH! Himachal 89/9 in 21.4 overs.

J & K vs Chandigarh: Shubham Khajuria, chipping in as an opener since Jammu and Kashmir's last game, is headed towards yet another monumental knock as he moves into the 70s. J & K 117/1 in 16.5 overs.

Maharashtra vs Pondicherry: Early batting collapses have been the order of the day and Pondicherry fell victim to yet another instance of the same.

Meghalaya vs Manipur: Sanjay Yadav disturbs Nitesh Sedai's furniture as Manipur loses its first man. Manipur 30/1 in 4 overs.

Himachal vs Mumbai: Mumbai looking to finish things off in a hurry at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Nikhil Gangta follows the openers soon enough for a duck. Mumbai 4/3 in 2.5 overs.

#StatAttack: None of the Mumbai bowlers have bowled a single No Ball in this season of the Vijay Hazare Trophy, thus far.

Himachal vs Mumbai: Two quick wickets have unsettled Himachal. Prashant Chopra and Ravi Thakur are back in the dugout. Himachal 4/2 in 2.2 overs.

Maharashtra vs Pondicherry: Pradeep Dadhe traps opener Ragu D plumb in front to deliver Pondicherry the first blow. Wait a second... We have the second wicket already as well! It is Rajvardhan Hangargekar, this time, who gets rid of the opponent captain Damodaran Rohit. Pondicherry 13/2 in 1.2 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Ishan Porel's inswingers are cramping the left-handed Chaitanya Bishnoi for space. The Bengal pacer gets one to hit the top of the pads this time, which invites vociferous appeals from his teammates. The umpire, however, isn't too interested. Haryana 30/0 in 4.2 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Opener Chaitanya Bishnoi gears up to face Ishan Porel, who has the new ball in hand. Shubham Rohilla takes his position at the non- striker's end.

Himachal needs 322 to win vs Mumbai

Mizoram needs 343 to win vs Assam

Meghalaya vs Manipur: Meghalaya, third on the Plate group, will be looking to inflict a massive defeat on Manipur, which is yet to win a game this season. The win will see the side pocket 16 points and hope both Uttarakhand and Assam lose their respective contests and then bank on Net Run Rate (NRR) to give itself a chance to play in the Pre-Quarterfinals (Eliminator) on Sunday. Yes, a lot of mathematics! Meghalaya 303/8 in 50 overs.

Assam vs Mizoram: The Assam batsmen will be satisfied with their efforts today. Except captain Gokul Sharma and Rajjakuddin Ahmed, everyone has had valuable contributions towards the scoresheet. Assam 297/6 in 45.1 overs.

Himachal vs Mumbai: The tables have turned and how! Mumbai, arguably the side with the most heavyweight batting order in the tournament, is now being propelled by wicketkeeper Aditya Tare and the explosive Shardul Thakur, lower down the order. Both the batsmen have gone well past their fifties. Mumbai 260/5 in 44.3 overs.

Saurashtra vs Services: It's a 150 for Rahul Singh Gahlaut! It has been an incredible comeback by Services, all thanks to this man. Services 262/5 in 46 overs.


UPDATE: Rahul Singh Gahlaut's wagon wheel   -  BCCI


Uttarakhand vs Sikkim: Quite the turnaround at the SSN College Ground in Chennai as Sikkim, in no time, has gone on to pick six wickets to land Uttarakhand in trouble! Tanush Gusain is the last man to go. Uttarakhand 254/7 in 44.1 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Arnab Nandi, looking to launch Sanjay Pahal over covers, sends the ball straight down Ankit Kumar's throat. Bengal's innings comes to a disappointing end with a mere 177 up on the board from 45.1 overs.

J & K vs Chandigarh: Two wickets fall for seven runs as Chandigarh becomes subject to immense pressure from Parvez Rasool and Co. Chandigarh 212/7 in 41.1 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Nothing lasts forever and Bengal finds it the hard way... Suvankar Bal, only moments after scoring his fifty, has been dismissed by Ashok Sandhu. Bengal 152/7 in 39.2 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Suvankar Bal's half-century instills some hope into the Bengal dressing-room. Bengal 152/6 in 39.1 overs.

Delhi vs Rajasthan: The big fish! Shikhar Dhawan takes a fine catch as Manender Singh, who was initially looking set to go for the big hundred, is gone. Ashok Menaria and Arjit Gupta are looking to build a solid partnership hereon. Rajasthan 173/4 in 32.1 overs.

Himachal vs Mumbai: That's the wicket Himachal was looking for! Suryakumar Yadav falls nine short of what would have been a much-deserved List A ton. He is absolutely gutted. Shardul Thakur comes to the crease. Mumbai 148/5 in 30.4 overs.

Uttarakhand vs Sikkim: A hundred it is for Kamal Singh! The Uttarakhand batsmen have done great to render the Sikkim bowlers almost ineffective. Uttarakhand 181/1 in 32.4 overs.


UPDATE: All bowlers to Kamal Singh during the Uttarakhand innings   -  BCCI


Delhi vs Rajasthan: Manender Singh saunters along to his fifty after Rajasthan loses the all-important wicket of Shiva Chauhan for 42. Bihar 132/2 in 23 overs.

Uttarakhand vs Sikkim: Uttarakhand is showing precisely why it leads the Plate Group. Unbeaten in the league stage, thus far, it has now moved on to 133/0 in 24 overs in this game, with both its openers getting a fifty each.

Bengal vs Haryana: Two for Jayant Yadav! The spinner has looked to be in great touch today, maintaining an economy well under 3.00. Shahbaz Ahamad, the victim, was completely flummoxed by the turn on this one as it headed on to crash into the wickets. Bengal 85/5 in 23.5 overs.

Assam vs Mizoram: Pallav Kumar Das' wicket does little to deter Assam as Denish Das moves to his fifty. Assam 104/1 in 18.2 overs.

Himachal vs Mumbai: Another one bites the dust! Sarfaraz Khan departs for 11 as Aditya Tare replaces him at the crease. Suryakumar Yadav, batting on 29*, needs to step up and play another "Main hoon na..." innings, if you know what we are talking about. Mumbai 49/4 in 13 overs.

Maharashtra vs Pondicherry: Just when the opening duo of Yash Nahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad was starting to frustrate the Pondicherry bowlers a bit, Sagar Udeshi removes the Maharashtra captain. Maharashtra 43/1 in 9.2 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Time for some off-spin feat. Jayant Yadav. And straightaway... Abhishek Raman tries to make some room but the ball turns into the left-hander, making a mess of the woodwork. Bengal has dug itself a hole at 49/3 in 12 overs.

Saurashtra vs Services: Three caught-behind dismissals! What is happening out here?! Captain Jaydev Unadkat and wicketkeeper Snell Patel combine to get rid of three batsmen in as many overs. Services 26/4 in 10.3 overs.

Himachal vs Mumbai: Bad news has been the order of the day, thus far, for Mumbai cricket fans! And there's more... It is the captain Shreyas Iyer, who has been trapped plumb in front now by his Himachal counterpart Rishi Dhawan. 2, 2, 2 reads the score of the side's top three as Mumbai finds itself slipping further at 8/3 in 4 overs.

Bengal vs Haryana: Ritwik Roy Chowdhury goes without bothering the scorers as Sanjay Pahal tastes blood yet again! Bengal 18/2 in 7.2 overs.
