  • Updates from Palam: The run-rate has slowed since blistering start to the chase. Going strong on 37, Ashish chipped left-arm spinner Akshay Chandran straight to Sachin Baby at mid-off, and four overs later, Akshath also fell, trapped lbw by Jalaj Saxena. Apart from a six by K.Rohit Rayudu off the left-arm spinner - it was lofted beyond the long-off boundary after he came down the track- the batsmen have kept quiet. Fielders clap to keep themselves motivated as the spinners operate under the hot sun. Hyderabad still in control of the chase, though. It's 101 for 3 in 23 overs.

    Nagaland 49/1 vs Arunachal Pradesh; Needs 223 runs to win

  • Updates from Palam: "Ashish Reddy, the No. 3, is dealing only in boundaries at the moment. Tanmay Agarwal departed early, falling lbw to off-spinner Jalaj Saxena. Ashish has struck four fours in his innings of 26, via drives, pulls and other belligerent strokes and was dropped by the third-man fielder when he attempted one too many. Akshath Reddy, his batting partner, has also joined in; he has five fours in his innings of 28. Hyderabad has raced to 61 for 1 in the 12th over."

  • Updates from Palam: "It started with frantic singles and twos, and later turned into agricultural hoicks and clubs for fours and sixes. The vigilant Jagadeesh needed to accelerate, and he targeted the fast bowlers during the death overs to take his team close to the 200-mark. The runs came in a torrent from the 46th over,when Jagadeesh reached his fifty with a pull for four.

    Runs came virtually every ball. Yorkers were dug out and singles were taken. In the 47th over, a slower ball was punished for a boundary, and in the 48th and 49th, Jagadeesh and Vishnu Vinod tore into the bowlers. Vishnu slammed C.V. Milind for a six through midwicket,and a four through long-off, off a misfield. Jagadeesh was caught in the deep as he tried to execute a belligerent stroke.

    Vishnu hit another six in the 49th over, and was dropped by B. Sandeep at the midwicket boundary when he tried another. The damage had been done. Vishnu's unbeaten 22-ball 34 helped Kerala reach 189 for 6 in its 50 overs, a good recovery on a slow wicket."

  • End of Innings: Himmat Singh scores a century (102*) and Delhi ends the innings with a big total - 314/5.

  • End of Innings: Mizoram's Taruwar Kohli bags six wickets, including a hat-trick off the final three balls of the innings, but Uttarakhand registers a massive total of 321. Karanveer Kaushal set the pace with an 86-ball 118.

  • Updates from Palam: "The run-rate has been slow, but V. A. Jagadeesh and Salman Nizar have looked assured in the middle, milking the spinners regularly for singles and the odd boundary. Mehdi, who came in to the attack again, was played relatively safely as he tried to throw in the slower ball amidst his faster stock delivery. The two batsmen must look to accelerate in the final 10 overs now that they are set. Kerala 114 for 4 in the 40th over."

  • Sikkim has been bowled out for 89 in  43.2 overs! Fabid Ahmed scalps 5 wickets.

  • Updates from Palam: "Akash Bhandari and Saaketh, the spinners in operation for the last half hour, haven't been as menacing as Mehdi. Baby and Jagadeesh especially warmed up to the bowling of leg-spinner Akash Bhandari, and played late cuts, drives and even paddle sweeps. Despite the batsmen having settled in, a wicket fell.
