Assam vs Mizoram: Assam skittles out Mizoram for 66. Taruwar Kohli, who scored 76 and 81 in the previous matches, top scores with 25 in what is a horror-show from the rest of the Mizoram batters. Pacer Abu Nechim tops the bowling charts with three wickets for three runs. Rajasthan Royals' teen starlet Riyan Parag claimed two wickets.

Tamil Nadu vs Manipur: Tamil Nadu has Manipur on the mat in the first 10 overs with the score reading 26/3 after electing to field. Sai Kishore has finished his spell with 4-1-6-2. Tamil Nadu is playing a strong side here.

Baroda vs Bihar: Kunal Dabas' 40-ball 45 has set Bihar up to go big in the final 5 overs. Baroda is 103/2 in 15 overs. Dabas' opening partner Vinay Bharti is batting on 24 from 25 balls. 

Mumbai vs Bengal: Shubham Ranjane, take a bow! With Mumbai needing four off the final ball, he hits a boundary to give his side a win -- fifth of the campaign. Ranjane first starred with the ball claiming three wickets before leading his side with the bat smashing a 17-ball 30. A rare off day for Suryakumar Yadav, however, scoring just 22. Bengal put up a good fight the ball after posting 153 on the board but it wasn't enough to prevent its second defeat in Group D.

Andhra vs Uttarakhand: Andhra struggles in the chase but ends up chasing down the modest total with seven balls to spare. Openers Srikar Kona (47) and Ashwin Kattingeri (23) laid the foundation for Andhra's chase with a 48-run stand for the first wicket in the chase of 130.

Kerala vs Vidarbha: Sandeep Warrier (3 wickets for 29) lays the foundation for Kerala's 26-run win over Vidarbha. It's a third win in four matches for Kerala while Vidarbha's 100 per cent record comes to an end.

Delhi vs J & K: Delhi has been stunned by Jammu and Kashmir in the Group E fixture. An eight-wicket win for J & K thanks to a 24-ball 58 from Manzoor Dar. Opener Jatin Wadhwan remained unbeaten with a 38-ball 48. A first loss for Delhi and a second win for J & K.

Rajasthan vs Uttar Pradesh: Rajesh Bishnoi slams an unbeaten 43-ball 87 to give Rajasthan its second win of the campaign. He registered a 200-plus strike rate with 8 fours and 6 sixes. Deepak Chahar remained unbeaten at the end to see off the target. Not many may remember Bishnoi, who played thrice for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2009 season where the team reached the final.

Punjab vs Railways: Punjab falls short of Railways by 5 runs in Group C! Railways goes level on points with Punjab with this win. Punjab needed 14 runs from the final over. Anmolpreet ((84 off 56 balls) took his side close with five fours and five sixes but couldn't get his team the win and was run out of the final ball.

Chandigarh vs Chhatisgarh: Sunrisers' Bipul Sharma scores an unbeaten 62 off 33 balls to take Chandigarh over the line. Third win in Group C for Chandigarh while Chhatisgarh is condemned to its first defeat in 5 matches.

Delhi vs J & K: Jammu and Kashmir is on the verge of a huge upset. It is made light work of Delhi's 165 thanks to Shubham Kajuria (49 off 22 balls) and Manzoor Dar (48 n.o. off 17 balls). It requires another 45 runs from the last 10 overs to complete a comprehensive win.

Punjab vs Railways: Punjab needs 14 to win from the final over. It has 4 wickets in hand.

Goa vs Services: Goa is let down by its top order as it falls 21 runs short of Services' 190. Goa's middle and lower order put up a fight to keep Goa briefly interested in the run chase but ultimately proved insufficient. Snehal Kauthankar remained unbeaten on 44. Mohit Kumar, who gave Services momentum in its innings with two sixes in the final over, picked up three wickets.

Pondicherry vs Haryana: Haryana completes the run chase with little discomfort to make it three wins in five matches in Group D. It's a second defeat of the tournament for Pondicherry. Rohit Sharma, not the Indian opener, hits the winning runs for Haryana.

Andhra vs Uttarakhand: Tanmay Srivastava doesn't get enough support at the other end as Uttarakhand posts 129/8 in 20 overs. He finishes unbeaten on 57 from 45 balls. Ayyappa Bandaru is the pick of the bowlers for Andhra with two wickets for 19.

Gujarat vs Sikkim: Demolition job carried out by Gujarat! It wraps up a win over Sikkim with 94 balls to spare. This is Gujarat's 2nd win in Group E while Sikkim remains winless.

Punjab vs Railways: Punjab in a spot of bother after it loses Gurkeerat Mann for 30. Anmolpreet Singh (46 off 36 balls) holds key as Punjab requires another 67 runs from 36 balls. Punjab is on 101/4 in 14 overs.

From a dream debut aged 18 to suffering a spate of injuries before earning recognition, Deepak Chahar has seen it all. Here, the India and CSK pacer speaks to Shayan Acharya on his resurgence.

Delhi vs J & K: Nitish Rana's 30-ball 55 takes Delhi to 165/7 in 20 overs. This was Rana's first fifty-plus score in 9 innings across formats. Lalit Yadav, too, chipped in with a 8-ball 23 with two fours and two sixes.

Bengal vs Mumbai: Not a commanding total after the start given to Bengal by its openers. Bengal finishes on 153/4 following a 45-ball 56 by Vivek Singh. Shahbaz Ahamad's cameo was crucial for the away side in helping it cross 150. Shubham Ranjane was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai with 3 for 17 from his four overs.

Andhra vs Uttarakhand: Tanmay Srivastava continues his impressive run at the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. The former India u-19 World Cup-winner is batting on 37 to lead Uttarakhand's revival. Uttarakhand is on 95/3 in 13.1 overs.

Gujarat vs Sikkim: Sikkim loses its last 7 wickets for 13 runs to be shot out for 49! The wickets are shared by all five bowlers used by Gujarat with the chief wreckers being Piyush Chawla (3 wickets) and Axar Patel (2 wickets). Chawla's figures read 4-2-4-3.

Pondicherry vs Haryana: Pondicherry is all-out for 114. Harshal Patel of Royal Challengers Bangalore fame and Ashish Hooda claim three wiskets each to put Haryana in a strong position.

Kerala vs Vidarbha: Captain's knock from Robin Uthappa! The former Karnataka and Saurashtra batsman struck an unbeaten 39-ball 69 to take Kerala to 162-7 in 20 overs.

Rajasthan vs Uttar Pradesh: Deepak Chahar almost took another hat-trick. He is making quite a habit of picking three wickets in an over. His final over fetched him three wickets in the space of four balls as UP manages 164 for the loss of 9. The India pacer, however, was on the expensive side today going for 46 runs in his 4 overs.

Punjab vs Railways: Railways finishes on 167/8. Its top-four batsmen all got starts but none of them went on to make a big score. Siddharth Kaul claimed four wickets for 19 to derail the Railways.

Delhi vs J & K: A nine-ball duck for India opener Shikhar Dhawan! Delhi was 51/3 in 7.5 overs but Nitish Rana, who desperately needs some runs has steadied Delhi with an unbeaten 17-ball 30. He already has three sixes. Delhi is 90/3 in 13 overs.

Kerala vs Vidarbha: Sanju Samson, too, is back in the hut for Kerala. He hit two boundaries before Darshan Nalkande dismissed him. Sachin Baby has walked in and has got goign with a flurry boundaries as he and Saxena look to steady things for Kerala. Kerala 47/2 in 6 overs.

Rajasthan vs Uttar Pradesh: Surprise, surprise! Deepak Chahar has no wickets in his opening two overs. Instead, he has been tonked for 18 runs.

Jayant Yadav, India Test player with 4 caps and Mumbai Indians spinner, took the big wicket of Paras Dogra for 17.

Goa vs Services: Services is 112 for the loss of no wickets in 12 overs. Just as I type that Services loses the first wicket -- Lakhan Singh departs after a 50-ball 81. His knock was studded with 9 x 4s and 4 x 6s. Ravi Chauhan was playing second fiddle to Lakhan in the 112-opening wicket stand.

Punjab vs Railways: Railways is off to a flier! Openers Pratham Singh (25) and Mrunal Devdhar (25 n.o.) help Punjab over 50 at the start of the 6th over. Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Kaul manages to break the opening stand in his first over.

Railways will have its task cut out in notching up it third win of the campaign in this Group C contest.
