BEN 188/7 vs MAH

Dominic Joseph gets another wicket and Maharashtra only need three more scalps and a berth in the final is theirs.


KAR 242/5 vs PUN

Harbhajan still has a bag of tricks. He saw CM Gautam coming down the track and bowled it outside leg. Gautam reached out and merely spooned a catch to  mid-wicket.


BEN163/6 vs MAH

Sandipan is out and Maharashtra are coasting towards a victory.


KAR 219/4 vs PUN

Karun Nair has got to fifty. He has been in brilliant touch this season and the run continues.


BEN 145/5 vs MAH

Bengal are all over the shop! Laxmi Ratan Shukla, who has been the star of their season, has been dismissed as Dominic Joseph bowls him. Things looking ominous for them as the possibility of an innings defeat looms large.



KAR 190/4 vs PUN

Karun Nair and CM Gautam are going along very well. In fact, Nair is continuing from where he left off in the previous games, where he got back to back hundreds. We also have Gautam, who is batting really well.


BEN 128/4 vs PUN

Samad Fallah has dismissed Sudip Chaterjee. The batsman edged it and was caught behind and goes back for 49. That is also Fallah’s 200th First-Class wicket. What an effort this season!


KAR 163/4 vs PUN

Karnataka have started off the second session of the day and CM Gautam is the new batsman. Sandeep Sharma and Harbhajan Singh continue to bowl.


So, it is lunch at both the venues. Bengal have gone in at 116 for three and have added 100 runs in the morning session. However, they have lost two wickets since morning and are still trailing by 225 runs. On the other hand, Punjab lost Manish Pandey at the stroke of lunch as he edged one off Sandeep Sharma. Karnataka have gone into lunch at 158 for four.


BEN 95/3 vs MAH

Bengal have lost Arindam Das and Wriddhiman Saha has come out to bat with Sudip Chatterjee. Now, they are under tremendous pressure.


KAR 134/3 vs PUN

Manish Pandey gets his fifty in fantastic fashion. Gony pitches it short and Pandey half-flicks, half-pulls him over the fine-leg boundary for a huge six.


BEN 81/2 vs MAH

Arindam Das has moved into the 30s now and Sudip Chatterjee is in the 20s. Bengal have rebuilt after the early loss of Abhimanyu Easwaran and are going smoothly now.


KAR 117/3 vs PUN

Karun Nair and Manish Pandey are facing an attack that has its tail up. At the same time, Harbhajan Singh continues and has tried to create chances and given the batsmen a few scares. Jaskaran Singh has been taken out of the attack after a long spell and Manpreet Gony is back into the attack.


BEN 61/2 vs MAH

Arindam Das is holding fort for Bengal at Indore. In the first innings as well, he had fought, but to no avail. This time, they need a much bigger effort to get on top, which is a tough task.


KAR 97/3 vs PUN

Harbhajan has his man! Uthappa pads one from Harbhajan with the bat behind it and the umpire gives it leg-before. That was some moment for Punjab, who knew they had him earlier. Now, Karun Nair comes out to bat and  there is a run-out scare for him, but he makes it.


KAR 94/2 vs PUN

Harbbhajan Singh comes into the attack and has an appeal for bat=pad of Robin Uthappa. However, the umpire turned it down and Harbhajan was furious. There was a big deflection off the gloves as it went on to the pads and it lobbed in the air. Lucky break for Uthappa.


BEN 50/2 vs MAH

Bengal have to recover and fight. They have anyways conceded a huge lead and need an inspired performance to get back into the game. They have anyways crossed 50 now.


BEN 34/2 vs MAH

Anupam Sanklecha has a wicket to his name. Abhimanyu Easwaran has been dismissed leg before and Bengal are in further trouble at Indore.


KAR 54/2 vs PUN

Robin Uthappa is in good touch and is batting well. Manish Pandey is also playing with measure as Sandeep Sharma and Manpreet Gony are testing the Karnataka batsman. The rate of scoring is slow, but that is fine as they have to play long.
