Baroda vs Madhya Pradesh:

Live Cricket Score, Madhya Pradesh 128 in 16.4 overs | Target 182 | Batting: Ashwin Das 0(0): OUT! Ishwar Pandey c P R Shah b R T Arothe 1(2) The target was big and the batsmen were expected to perform up to that mark which the MP batsmen failed to do. It was a single handed effort from Harpreet Singh Bhatia who scored 52 to push score beyond 120. Baroda bowlers did exceptionally well with the ball to end things with 3.2 overs still remaining.

Maharashtra vs Karnataka:

Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan 123/7 in overs 15 |Target 184 | Batting: Robin Uthappa 60(41), Suchith J 3(5): OUT! Abhimanyu Mithun c R A Tripathi b A A Sanklecha 10(10) Robin Uthappa’s 52-ball 80 went in vain as he failed to take his team to a victorious end. But the effort was truly remarkable as it helped them to put up a good fight against the Maharashtra team.

Saurasthra vs Team Rajasthan:

Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan 115 in overs 19.3 |Target 141 | Batting: NB Singh 0(1): OUT! Pankaj Singh b Shaurya M Sanandia 0(1) Shaurya M Sanandia finish things off for Saurashtra as they win the match by 25 runs against the Rajasthan team. It was Jaydev Unadkat with the bat and a combined bowling attack that got them the victory.


 

Baroda vs Madhya Pradesh:

Live Cricket Score, Madhya Pradesh 115/8 in 15 overs | Target 182 | Batting: Ishwar Pandey 1(1), Harpreet Singh Bhatia 39(30): OUT! Puneet Datey c Mrunal Devdhar b I K Pathan And the Baroda bowlers have done a total destruction to the MP batting. The batsmen are throwing their wickets and no one is able to face them successfully except Bhatia who is unbeaten at 39.

Maharashtra vs Karnataka:

Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan 123/7 in overs 15 |Target 184 | Batting: Robin Uthappa 60(41), Suchith J 3(5): OUT! Shreyas Gopal Run Out Shrikant Mundhe Robin Uthappa can do it for his side but he is seeking a good partner at the other end to build up a partnership. He has a brief partnership with Vinay Kumar but the team has only 2 wickets left in hand.

Haryana vs Himachal Pradesh:

Live Cricket Score, Himachal Pradesh 123/8 in 19.2 overs | Target 123 | Batting: RK Singh 13(12), AN Chauhan 15(7): OUT! PP Jaswal c J J Yadav b A R Mishra The match came down to the last over and saw the Himachal Pradesh team emerge as the winner. They performed well in both the departments and the results went in favour of them. But the Haryana team put up a commendable fight.

Saurasthra vs Team Rajasthan:

Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan 106/7 in overs 18 |Target 141 | Batting: CK Singh 29(24), TM Ul Haq 7(8): OUT! RK Bishnoi c P I Solanki b Chirag Jani A poor performance by the Rajasthan batsmen as it seems impossible for them to get to an achievable target of 141.  None of the batsmen could put up a mentionable performance and wickets kept falling in regular intervals.

Punjab vs Tripura:

Live Cricket Score, Punjab 100/2 in overs 15.3 |Target 97 | Batting: Manan Vohra 35(39), ARK Malhotra 40(29): OUT! Himanshu Chawla Run Out M B Mura Singh And Punjab clinch an easy victory. With 4.3 overs still in hand, Punjab got their much-wanted victory. The credit goes to Punjab bowlers who restricted the batsmen within 100 and made the job easy for the batsmen.


 

Baroda vs Madhya Pradesh:

Live Cricket Score, Madhya Pradesh 31/3 in 5 overs | Target 182 | Batting: Jalaj saxena 9(12), Harpreet Singh Bhatia 4(3):  The Baroda bowlers have done a great job removing the top order of the Madhya Pradesh but Jalaj Saxena is still at the crease. He has performed very well in the Ranji Trophy and is currently in a very good form. If he performs up to the expectations, MP can still win it.

Maharashtra vs Karnataka:

Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan 48/3 in overs 7 |Target 184 | Batting: Robin Uthappa 21(18), Mayank Agarwal 11(10): OUT! CM Gautam c A R Bawane b A A Sanklecha And Uthappa is on fire! Uthappa looks set and has Mayank Agarwal to support him at the other end. The target is big but both the players are potent enough to do the job for their team. They need to hit big as they don’t have any other option.

Haryana vs Himachal Pradesh:

Live Cricket Score, Himachal Pradesh 38/2 in 7 overs | Target 123 | Batting: PS Chopra 15(22), Robin Bist 1(1): OUT! Paras Dogra c Yuzvendra Chahal b P B Mehta A big wicket for Haryana as Paras Dogra is one of the most consistent players of the side. But the total is quite achievable and with 8 wickets still in hand, HP can easily get to it.

Saurasthra vs Team Rajasthan:

Live Cricket Score, Rajasthan 36/4 in overs 7 |Target 141 | Batting: PR Yadav 12(15), Rajat Bhatia 5(4): OUT! Ashok Menaria Run out P I Solanki 0(2) Rajasthan is in danger now. They have already lost 4 wickets and have almost 13 overs in their hand and they will have to score more than hundred runs. The required runrate is going up with every over and they need to start hitting hard while protecting their wicket.

Punjab vs Tripura:

Live Cricket Score, Punjab 24/1 in overs 6 |Target 97 | Batting: Manan Vohra 3(14), Himanshu Chawla 6(5): OUT! Pargat Singh c Rana Datta b M B Mura Singh Tripura gets a wicket but that won’t affect much as the target is very low and the Punjab team has a long batting line up. One steady partnership can win them the match and to stop that from happening Tripura would have to scalp early wickets.

Rajasthan have a big battle in hand as they take on one of the powerhouse of Indian cricket, in the form of Saurashtra, who can undubtedly be the fabvourites for this game; However, Rajasthan ahve a good track record and experience as they could well put it into some good use.
