Karnataka vs UP | Here's Ashwin Achal, our correspondent, from Hubli:

UP makes a solid start. Almas and Aryan have played out the tricky first hour very well. Mithun and More defeated the edge a few times, but don't have a wicket to show. Mathias has been disappointing, straying in line and length too often. At his military medium, Mathias just cannot afford to stray.

Spin introduced for the first time. Left arm Suchith comes into the attack in the 20th over. Starts with a loosener, dispatched comfortably to the point boundary by Aryan.

Tamil Nadu vs Himachal Pradesh | Openers Priyanshu Khanduri and Prashant Chopra are back in the pavilion, at the NPR College Ground in Dindigul. S. L. Verma (27 n.o., 53b, 4x4) and captain Ankit Kalsi (8, 39b, 1x4) are batting.

Anureet Singh and L. I. Meriwala have two wickets each.

Karnataka vs UP | UP openers have survived a tough first hour, in Hubli. In between the plays and misses, the uncertain leaves and defensive postures, they've hit four fours between them. It's drinks, after 16 overs; the total is 32.

Aryan Juyal is batting on 17 (55b, 2x4) while Almas Shaukat is batting on 11 (42b, 2x4).

 

Andhra vs Delhi | Andhra has crossed the 50-mark at the CSR Sharma College Ground in Ongole. Both openers are back in the pavilion, Kunal Chandela for a duck and Anuj Rawat for 29 (44b, 5x4).

Rishav Das, the other opener, has taken 21 balls to score six runs while captain Sibsankar Roy is batting on 1, off 18 deliveries.

Right-arm seamer Ashish Kumar has taken the only wicket to fall. He has figures of 4-3-1-1.

Karnataka vs UP | It's 10 overs up at the KSCA stadium in Hubli. Abhimanyu Mithun is getting the ball the swing well and opener Aryan Juyal seems to have no clue how to negotiate those deliveries. One of them pitches outside leg-stump and swings just enough to breach the batsman's defence, cutting him in half on its way to the wicketkeeper. In the same over, the batsman shapes similarly to play a ball that swings and narrowly misses the outside edge of the bat. After 10 overs, it's 16 for 0.
