  • Jharkhand wins by five wickets against Gujarat, Anukul Roy and Sumit Kumar take Jharkhand home with 20 balls to spare.
  • J&K needs 16 off 16 balls now. Captain Parvez Rasool is at the crease batting at 59 off 63 balls.
  • Jharkhand 100/5 in 21 overs, Ishan Kishan's side needs just 8 more runs to win the match, with 4 overs remaining.
  • J&K needs 22 runs to win from 23 balls. Varun Chakravarthy traps Fazill Rashid leg before. J&K now six down
  • Bengal beats Rajasthan by six wickets. Manoj Tiwary 56 (117b, 3x4) and Anustup Majumdar 36 (42b, 3x4) take the team over the line.
  • Ishan Kishan comes out of the crease to take on Piyush Chawla and misses it, Parthiv Patel takes off the bails to end the Jharkhand skipper innings of 64 runs (52b, 3x4, 4x6). Jharkhand 90/5 in 18.2 overs
  • Another victory on the cards for the chasing team today, J&K 26 runs away from a victory with 34 balls remaining, captain Parvez Rasool reaches his fifty in 53 balls.
  • Manoj Tiwary reaches his fifty in 106 balls with Bengal needing just 11 more to win with six wickets in hand. Bengal 167/4 in 36 overs

  • Update from M.A.C: J&K 74/3 in 20 overs, Parvez Rasool holds key to the vistor's chances. The skipper swept off-spinner Varun over deep mid-wicket for six, and has looked settled so far. With dark clouds hovering above the ground, the light at MAC could soon become an issue. That has probably prompted Vijay Shankar to opt for an all-out spin attack.

  • Update from M.A.C: M. Mohammed traps Ahmad Banday in front as J&K loses an early wicket in its pursuit of 169. The visitor has an opportunity of causing on upset provided it doesn't panic and lose wickets in heap. J&K 15/1 in 5 overs.

  • Gujarat Playing XI: Parthiv Patel(w/c), Priyank Panchal, Bhargav Merai, Rujul Bhatt, Manprit Juneja, Chirag Gandhi, Piyush Chawla, Hardik Patel, Rush Kalaria, Karan Patel, Chintan Gaja
  • Update from M.A.C: Baba Indrajith (28, 35b, 3x4) struck a slew of lusty blows and together with Washington Sundar, put up 34 runs for the fifth wicket before becoming Raza's second victim of the match. Tamil Nadu 146/6  with 10 overs remaining.

  • Update from M.A.C: 50-run partnership between Vijay and Mukund off 64 balls. Both batsmen have shown the keenness to work the ball in the gaps for ones and twos.  The odd short ball catered with width has been punished, with Mukund playing an upper cut on one occasion.
  • Update from M.A.C: TN  brings up its 50 in the 11th over.  Murali Vijay, in the meantime, showing his class by dispatching a brace of boundaries. He drives Rasik Salam through mid-off before going down on one knee and hammering one through the covers.
  • Tamil Nadu brings up its 50 in 10.2 overs as Abhinav Mukund and Murali Vijay have settled in nicely.
  • Rajasthan has lost four wickets as the Bengal bowlers are making regular inroads. Rajasthan 64/4 at the end of 16 overs.
  • Update from M.A.C: Jammu and Kashmir won the toss and elected to bowl. TN lost opener Jagadeesan cheaply, the keeper-batsman getting caught behind off seamer Rasik Salam. There's some movement off the deck and in the air, however, early morning showers have slowed down the outfield, so expect the batsmen to run plenty of ones and twos. Meanwhile, in-form batsman Abhinav Mukund collected two boundaries thanks to a top edge that ran to the third-man fence and a delightful drive through mid-off. Murali Vijay and Mukund at the crease. TN 23/1 after 5.
