Good morning, welcome to Sportstar's live coverage of Round 6 of Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019-20.

LIVE UPDATES

In Jaipur, Tamil Nadu versus Bengal in Elite Group C: Tamil Nadu quickly wrap things up and register a comprehensive 74-run victory on the back of Dinesh Karthik's batting exploits. Shahbaz Ahmed's 107 goes in vain as he ran out of partners to conjure up a meaningful threat to TN's bowling.

In Bangalore, Mumbai versus Saurashtra in Elite Group A: Mumbai wins by five wickets but Ranjane has denied a century for Yadav, who is left stranded not out on 85. Ranjane finishes unbeaten on 45 as the pair get the job done with two overs to spare. The sixth-wicket unbroken partnership reads 115. Two wins in two for Mumbai.

In Bangalore, Hyderabad versus Karnataka in Elite Group A: Abhimanyu Mithun hasn't thrown in the towel yet. He has brought the target down to 22 with a few tonks to the boundary. Unfortunately, for him and Karnataka, there is only Prasid Krishna left for company to pull this one off. And, just as I write that Milind has finished the job for Hyderabad by prising out Mithun. A 21-run win for Hyderabad, which registers its second victory in three matches. It's a first defeat for Karnataka.

In Jaipur, Railways versus Services in Elite Group C: Services has completed a five-wicket victory over Railways. It lost a few wickets with the target under 35 runs but Nakul Verma's 108 and Rajat Paliwal's 56 had done enough to take the sting out of Railways' bowling.

In Bangalore, Hyderabad versus Karnataka in Elite Group A: Collapse Alert! Karnataka has lost 5 wickets for 25 runs and is nine down needing another 39 runs from 46 balls. Left-arm orthodox of Bavanaka Sandeep is proving to be the undoing for Karnataka's lower middle order.

In Jaipur, Tamil Nadu versus Bengal in Elite Group C: The Ahmed and Majumdar partnership is broken by the off-spin of Aparajith. He catches Majumdar short of crease to be stumped before having Arnab Nandi holing out for 14. Bengal is now seven wickets down as TN smells its fourth successive win of the season.

In Bangalore, Mumbai versus Saurashtra in Elite Group A: Mumbai is closing in on the target and Suryakumar Yadav is doing it in style. He has raced onto 78 runs from 65 balls and his sixth-wicket stand with Ranjane has swelled to 84. Mumbai requires 29 runs from 30 balls for its second win of the tournament in as many matches. It will be a well deserved hundred too for Yadav if he manages to reach the mark on the back of his 31-ball 81 against Chattisgarh last time out.

In Bangalore, Mumbai versus Saurashtra in Elite Group A: Chasing 246 for victory, Mumbai is 139 for five after 33 overs. The required run-rate has ticked over six runs an over and Suryakumar Yadav holds the key to the run-chase. Shivam Dube has just been dismissed, bringing Shubham Ranjane to the middle.

In Bangalore, Hyderabad versus Karnataka in Elite Group A: Chasing 199 for victory, Karnataka is 120 for four after 27 overs. Devdutt Padikal is the set batsman batting on 45, B.R. Sharath is relatively new to the crease. If Karnataka avoids losing wickets, it will get to the target easily with the required run-rate not an issue.

In Jaipur, Tamil Nadu versus Bengal in Elite Group C: Bengal, chasing 287 for victory, is 60 for five after 20 overs. Shreevats Goswali, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Abhishek Kumar Raman, Manoj Tiwary and Sudip Chatterjee are the batsmen dismissed. Shahbaz Ahmed and Anustup Majumdar have stemmed the flow of wickets and added 39 runs so far for the sixth wicket, but the with required run-rate now touch 7.50 runs per over, they need to get a move on.

In Jaipur, Gujarat versus Rajasthan in Elite Group C: Gujarat completes a seven-wicket win, chasing down a small target of 103 with 147 balls to spare. Dhruv Raval (34) and Manpreet Juneja (19) are the two not-out batsmen. Khaleel Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers for Rajasthan with figures of 6-0-15-1.

In Jaipur, Railways versus Services in Elite Group C: Chasing 252 for victory, Services is 139 for two after 32 overs. Nakul Verma is batting on 72 off 92 balls, while Rahul Singh Gahlaut has just been dismissed for 43. Rajat Paliwal has joined Nakul in the middle with Services needing a shift in the tempo.
