Uttarakhand thus registered their seventh win, but narrowly missed out on qualifying for the quarters. <p></p> <p></p>Opting to bat, Uttarakhand suffered a top order collapse that saw them slip to 90/6 in the 23<sup>rd</sup> over. However, Rangaranjan and wicketkeeper-batsman Saurabh Rawat (67) stitched a 100-plus partnership to resurrect the innings. Rangaranjan, who scored four boundaries during his 82-ball knock, was the first to depart after he was trapped lbw off Kshitiz Sharma in the 43<sup>rd</sup> over. Rawat, meanwhile, held fort and was dismissed in the last over off Akhilesh Sahani. Uttarakhand finished their innings at 264. <p></p> <p></p>Arunachal Pradesh fumbled during their run chase. Openers Samarth Seth (27) and Doria (26) got the right starts, but failed to capitalise as Arunachal slumped to 70/3 in the 19<sup>th</sup> over and from thereon, they further slipped to 132/6 in the 41<sup>st</sup> over. For Uttarakhand, skipper Rajat Bhatia returned with exceptional figures of 3/17 in his 10 overs, while Rangaranjan conceded 12 runs in his 10 overs. <p></p> <p></p><em><strong>Brief scores:</strong> Uttarkhand 264 all out in 49.4 overs (Saurabh Rawat 67, Malolan Rangarajan 50) beat Arunachal Pradesh 156/9 in 50 overs (Akhilesh Sahani 41; Rajat Bhatia 3-17) by 108 runs</em> <p></p> <p></p><strong>Puducherry finish third</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Puducherry have Paras Dogra to thank after his unbeaten 136 along with fifties from captain D Rohit (55) and Abhishek Nayar (50) helped them beat Meghalaya by 74 runs at the Shastri Maidan in Anand on Monday. After notching their fourth win in a row, Puducherry finished third in the Plate Group with 24 points. <p></p> <p></p>Opting to bat, Puducherry were off to a good start with opener Narayan (37) and Rohit conjuring 99 runs for the opening wicket. Narayan departed in the 19<sup>th</sup> over after he was stumped by keeper Punit Bisht off RR Biswa. Rohit followed his opening partner two overs later. Dogra and Nayar then took the onus of run-scoring as the duo were involved in a 115-run partnership which thrusted Puducherry to 218/3 in the 39<sup>th</sup> over after which Nayar was cleaned up by Mark Ingty. Dogra batted with the tail as Puducherry finished at 324/5. Dogra s 97-ball innings was laced with 12 boundaries and seven sixes. <p></p> <p></p>Chasing 324 was never going to be easy and Meghalaya seemed to have buckled under the pressure as they were down 73/3 in the 18<sup>th</sup> over. Yogesh Nagar s unbeaten 109 and Gurinder Singh (72) tried hard to reach the target, but their 133-run partnership could only help Meghalaya reach 250/5 after 50 overs. <p></p> <p></p><em><strong>Brief scores:</strong> Puducherry 324/5 in 50 overs (Paras Dogra 136, D Rohit 55, Abhishek Nayar 50) beat Meghalaya 250/5 in 50 overs (Yogesh Nagar 109*, Gurinder Singh 72) by 74 runs</em> <p></p> <p></p><strong>Bihar thrash Mizoram, qualify for quarters after 18 years</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Bihar thrashed Mizoram by nine wickets on Monday at the Moti Bagh Stadium in Vadodara to enter the quarter-finals on domestic return after 18 years. <p></p> <p></p>Opting to bat, Mizoram were off to a positive start with opener Akhil Rajput scoring a 65-ball 43. However, Bihar captain Keshar Kumar s left-arm spin spoiled the party for Rajut, who was cleaned up in the 22nd over. Rajput s dismissal led to a batting collapse with no other batsmen, besides his opening partner Michael Lalremkima (18) registering double digit scores. Five batsmen departed for ducks that added insult to injury. <p></p> <p></p>Mizoram were bowled out for 83 in 27.2 overs with Kumar returning with 4/21, while the other left-arm spinner Ashutosh Aman claimed three wickets in his four over and went for just two runs. <p></p> <p></p>An unbeaten 59 by opener Vikash Ranjan ensured Bihar seal the win in 15.4 overs and edge past second-placed Uttarakhand to reach the knockouts in a memorable victory. <p></p> <p></p><em><strong>Brief scores:</strong> Bihar 87/1 in 15.4 overs (Vikash Ranjan 59*) beat Mizoram 83 all out in 27.2 overs (Akhil Rajput 43; Keshav Kumar 4/21, Ashutosh Aman 3/2) by nine wickets</em> <p></p> <p></p>Here's how all the action unfolded <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/vijay-hazare-trophy-2018-19-live-live-cricket-score-round-12-2-753272">today</a>.
