Next up, we have a double-header. Delhi will take on Mumbai while Karnataka squares off against Uttar Pradesh. Play to start at 1.30 pm.

Maharashtra rode on Rahul Tripathi's quickfire 60  and an all-round performance from its bowlers to thrash Bengal by seven wickets.

11.36 am: Commentator's curse? Maharashtra loses two in quick succession. Shahbaz traps Motwani in front before Akash Deep grabs his second by removing Naushad Shaikh. Maharashtra is 87/3 after 11 overs. A case of too little too late?

11.30 am: Tripathi and Motwani are taking Bengal bowlers to the cleaners. Motwani has joined the fun with two sixes and as many boundaries with Maharashtra now just 62 runs away from victory. It is 77/1 after 9.3 overs. 

11.14 am: Tripathi has taken over the mantle of scoring boundaries; he gets three against his name as Maharashtra nonchalantly goes about erasing the deficit. He has been joined by Rahul Motwani in the middle. Maharashtra is 47/1 at the end of powerplay. It needs another 92 runs to win.

11.02 am: And Gaikwad perishes; he is clean bowled by Akash Deep for 20. Maharashtra is 30/1 after 3.

10.57 am: Ruturaj Gaikwad has been in a hurry from the moment he walked in. He has raced to 20 off just four deliveries, clobbering three boundaries off Ashoke Dinda's first over. Maharashtra making light work of Bengal's total. It is 25/0 in 2.1 overs.

Welcome back. Ruturaj Gaikwad and  Rahul Tripathi are opening the innings for Maharashtra; Dinda with the new ball.

DID YOU KNOW?

The lowest team total in Syed Mushtaq T20 was recorded by Tripura in 2009 when it was all-out for a paltry 30.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Innings break: After losing half the side for 25, Bengal recovered well through a 55-run sixth-wicket stand between Manoj Tiwary (41, 44b, 3x4, 2x6)  and Shahbaz (60 n.o., 44b, 5x4, 2x6).

Shahbaz upped the ante in the death overs to reach a crucial half-century as Bengal finished on 138/7. Will it be enough to thwart Maharashtra? We will find out soon.

10.09 am: BIG WICKET for Maharashtra as Tiwary departs for a well-crafted 41. The Bengal skipper tried to repair the early damage on the back of a 55-run sixth wicket stand with Shahbaz before being cleaned up by Bacchav with five overs to spare. Bengal 82/6 in 15 overs.

9.45 am: Manoj Tiwary has reached 20 off 25 deliveries with the help of three boundaries. He has Shahbaz for company, who has moved to 11 off 12 balls. Bengal is limping towards the 50-run mark. It is 44/5 in 9.1 overs

9.32 am: Half the team is now back in the dressing room for just 25, Ritwik Roy Chowdhury the latest to fall. It's a procession out there at the moment.

9.12   am: Muthuswamy is wreaking havoc on the Bengal top-order at the moment as he cleans up Easwaran for a duck. Bengal reeling at 3/3.

9.08 am: The one-brings-two phenomenon as Muthuswamy claims the prized scalp of in-form batsman Shreevats Goswami. Goswami has been a force to reckon with for Bengal at the top of the order and was instrumental in Bengal's comprehensive win yesterday. He departs for 1 as Bengal slips to 2/2.

9.06 am: Maharashtra strikes early as opener Wriddhiman Saha falls for a two-ball duck; S. M. Fallah with the breakthrough. The move to promote Saha up the order after having tried Vivek Singh in the opening slot has worked for Bengal but not today. Bengal 1/1 after 1 over.

TOSS UPDATE: Maharashtra has won the toss and inserted Bengal in.
