Vidarbha are 84/4 after their skipper S. Badrinath is trapped in front by Pankaj Singh for 47. Jharkhand lose two quick wickets with opener Rameez Nemat (44) and skipper Saurabh Tiwary (4) are out in quick succession against Kerala at Dhanbad. They are reduced to 116 for three after an excellent start.

Mumbai who lost the opening Ranji Trophy 2014-15 tie against Jammu and Kashmir earlier, came back to form after thumping Uttar Pradesh in Kanpur in the Round Three match played at Green Park Kanpur. The motivated Mumbai side would now take on Bengal in Round Four match which will be played at Eden Gardens on Sunday.

Bengal on the other hand started their campaign in a superior note as they pushed apart Baroda in their opening tie. But they lost track as they lost to Karnataka in the next match. It would be interesting to see how they perform against inspired Mumbai side on Sunday. Mumbai on the other hand picked up six new players for their Ranji Trophy tie against Bengal.

In another, Group B tie, Punjab would take on Saurashtra at Rajkot. Punjab defeated Maharashtra in the last match by three wickets riding on some decent performances by Yuvraj Singh, Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Sandeep Sharma. It would be another challenge for Punjab to keep the momentum going in the season.

On the other hand, Saurashtra drew with Gujarat in previous Ranji Trophy tie. Sheldon Jackson was one of the top performers for Saurashtra as fired an attacking 156.
