The middle-order duo of Rawat and Ghosh have to play a responsible innings and form a vital partnership at this point.

Assam, who are having an average tournament would like to win against a quality side of Railways, who are on a hunt to make it to the knock-outs of the tournament. Delhi, who have been the former champions seem to be on atrail to be the champions once again, however, Goa would be on a mission as well to halt their progress and clear their way to the top. Himachal Pradesh, who have been in good form of late, would look to tame a quality side of Tamil Nadu, who have been on fore in the tournament and seem tough to be stopped at present.

Hyderabad, who have been mostly inconsistent throughout the oturnament would aim for a win here against Vidarbha, who have been performing well in the tournament recently and would a tough challenge to beat them. Jharkhand would be taking on the quality side of Saurashtra, who are undoubtedly one of the powerhouse in Indian domestic cricket of late, and would be a tough encounter for both the sides, who seem on a mission to emerge champions.
