  • Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh needs 5 runs to win off the last over now.

  • Andhra just 19 runs from a win here against Saurashtra.

  • Suryakumar's 16th hit to the fence wraps up a superb run chase for Mumbai. An unbeaten fifth wicket stand between Suryakumar (123*, 103b) and Shams Mulani (41*)  for the fifth wicket allowed Mumbai to knock off the runs at a canter. Mumbai 270/4 in 44.3 overs against Himachal.

  • Suryakumar Yadav (103*, 93b) races to his century with Mumbai in firm control of the chase. Mumbai 238/4 in 42 overs chasing 270.

  • A boundary from no. 9 batsmen Arun Chaprana seals the the match for Haryana against Tripura. C.K. Bishnoi's patient 55* from 111 balls saw Haryana through a few hiccups in its chase. Haryana 175/7 in 41.2 overs.

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai:  Mukund falls six shy of a hundred. The Tamil Nadu batsmen have flayed Bengal's ineffective bowling. TN 197/2 in 32 overs.

  • Updates from Palam-B ground, New Delhi: Prashanth and Ricky Bhui have consolidated Andhra's position in the chase, surviving the tough period against the spinners and attacking when the opportunity arose. Ricky Bhui, especially, has played the spinners well. A couple of slog sweeps for six off Makwana made a statement, too. The two have grafted well and are picking singles at ease. In another sign of confidence, Prashanth reached his half century with a boundary. Andhra 132/2 in the 35th over. Target - 215.

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai:  TN has reached 166 in 28 overs.  On a sluggish wicket,  Mukund has led the way with a quickfire 85 off 93 balls. Baba Aparajith giving him company on 17. 74 more to get.

  • Haryana within 11 runs off the target in its match against Tripura. Haryana 162/5 in 37 overs.

  • Fighting fifties from Aksh Deep Nath (51) and Samarth Singh (52*) has allowed Uttar Pradesh to be within reach of the asking rate. Mihir Hirwani brought an end to the 115-run stand between Aksh and Samarth. Uttar Pradesh 187/3 in the 37th over chasing 278.

  • Jagadeesan departs against the run of play, he's out for 55. Mukund (81*, 86b) marches on. Tamil Nadu 151/1 in the 25th over chasing 240.

  • Sikkim has been shot out for 46 with just two batsmen registering double digit scores. A mammoth 292-run win for Bihar. Anunay Narayan Singh (3), Keshav Kumar (3) and Rehan Khan (2) starred with the ball for Bihar on the back of Rahmat Ullah's unbeaten 156 with the bat.

  • Vineet Saxena (66*, 87b) leads Uttarakhand to an eight-wicket win over Meghalaya. Uttarakhand 143/2 in 31 overs.

  • Chhattisgarh has lost its way here in its chase of 223. Mohammed Siraj's run-out of Amandeep Khare triggers a middle-order collapse. Off-spinner Saaketh Sairam joins the party with a couple of wickets which leaves Chhatisgarh reeling at 73/6 in the 24th over.

  • Updates from Palam-B ground, New Delhi: Saurashtra's tails are up after the spinners lay a web to confound the batsmen in the middle. All of a sudden, the pitch feels like a minefield and the ball seems to be turning square. The pressure paid off when K.S. Bharat, who was playing well till that point, nudged Kamlesh Makwana to short midwicket. Andhra 82/2 in 24 overs.

  • Karnataka completes six-wicket win over Vidarbha. Ravikumar Thakur's three-wicket burst had Karnataka in trouble at 61/4 in the 18th over. Kaunain Abbas (35*) and Shreyas Gopal (34*) quelled any fears in the Karnataka dressing room by steering them home in the chase of 126. Karnataka 129/4 in 32.3 overs.

  • Nagaland defeats Manipur by 9 wickets. Fifties from Sedezhalie (52*) and Pawan K. B. (50*) take the Northeast side to a comfortable win which was set up by a good bowling effort by their bowlers. Nagaland 147/1 in 34.2 overs.

  • Saransh Jain's twin strikes have allowed Madhya Pradesh to pull things back after a rapid start from the Uttar Pradesh openers (Abhishek Goswami 31, Upendra Yadav 45). Madhya Pradesh 111/2 in 23 overs in chase of 278.

  • A wobbly start from Chhatisgarh in its chase of 222 against Hyderabad. Opener Ashutosh Singh (37*, 56b) and Amandeep Khare (7*) look to rebuild the innings after two quick wickets. Chhatisgarh 57/2 in 17 overs.

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai:  Mukund (42*, 37b) in no mood to relent as he continues to inflict more misery on the Bengal bowlers — especially the seamers. Tamil Nadu brought up its 50 in 6.3 overs, with Mukund scoring 38 of those. 

    Meanwhile left-arm spinner Pramanik is bearing the brunt of Jagadeesan's (26*, 22b) willow as the keeper-batsman collects 14 off his one over. TN off to a rollicking start , it is 76/0 after 10 overs.

  • Mumbai's batting comes under test with opener Prithvi Shaw's participation in the Board's President XI match against West Indies. Himachal's Rishi Dhawan makes early inroads by removing Akhil Herwadkar (28) and Siddesh Lad (11). Mumbai 70/2 in 14 overs chasing 270.

  • Baroda's Lukman Meriwala opening spell of 5-0-9-2 has put Railways in the backfoot in its chase of 270. Railways 42/4 in the 12th over.

  • Updates from Palam-B ground, New Delhi: Jaydev Unadkat and Chirag Jani, Saurashtra's seamers, have been hard to get away with as Andhra makes a quiet start to its chase of 215.

    KS Bharat's back-to-back boundaries - a pull and a square drive - apart, runs have come in a trickle. Ashein Hebbar was surprised as the ball jumped on him, and was caught behind. Andhra 32/1 in the 11th over.

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai:  Abhinav Mukund has cut, driven and pulled his way to 24 off 20 while Jagadeesan flexed his muscle with an off drive as Tamil Nadu openers put a rather undisciplined Bengal new-ball pair of Dinda and Kanishk Seth under the pump. TN 36/0 after five overs.

  • Rehan Khan joins the party as he sends back Ashish Thapa for an lbw and then dismisses Lee Yong Lepcha for a score of four in the same over. Sikkim 10/5 (9 Overs)

  • Haryana needs 99 runs more to win against Tripura. Haryana 73/1 (10 Overs)

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram stadium, Chennai:  "Bengal all out for 239; a fine knock from Easwaran 72 (97) at the top and a late burst from A. Majumdar 39(33) helped the Manoj Tiwary-led side to what appears to be challenging score on this pitch. Vijay Shankar was the pick of the bowlers, returning figures of 4-34."

  • Baroda finishes 269/9 in 50 overs, Aditya Waghmode 74(99), Krunal Pandya 62(67), Deepak Hooda 54(43) set up a commendable total against Railways.

  • Updates from Palam-B ground, New Delhi:  "Frantic run making from Arpit Vasavad and Chirag Jani helped Saurashtra reach 214/7 in 50 overs. Since the batting power play was taken in the 40th over, runs have come off virtually every delivery. Singles have been converted into twos and few aggressive strokes were hit when the opportunity arose. Eventually both got out in the pursuit of runs. But not before Arpit reaches his fifty."

  • Rahmat Ullah walks off retired hurt after making 156 off 103 balls (10x4, 6x8), Bihar 307/3 (46.3 Overs)

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram stadium, Chennai: "Easwaran is out for 72 off 97 balls, in a rather contentious fashion with substitute Shahrukh Khan claiming a low catch at shot mid-wicket off Koushik.

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram stadium, Chennai: "It is a fairly slow wicket at Chepauk, no surprise TN is playing three spinners in Rahil Shah, Varun Chakravarthy and Sai Kishore. The pitch will tend to get slower as the game progresses, so Bengal will fancy its chances should it reach a competitive score. At the moment, its the batsmen who are benefiting from some pretty ordinary fielding by TN. Easwaran is grinding it out on a pitch that has little to offers in terms of pace and bounce. The right-hander reaches his fifty in 76 balls with Bengal over the hundred mark in the 25th over" Bengal 105/2 (25.2 Overs)

  • Updates from M.A. Chidambaram stadium, Chennai:  "Bengal has lost its second wicket.
