PTI[/caption] <p></p> <p></p>Rain ended Mumbai's Vijay Hazare Trophy campaign in Bengaluru on Monday as Chhattisgarh made it to the semi-finals on the basis of more wins against their quarterfinal opponents in the league phase. <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu also reached the semifinals on the basis of more wins than Punjab in the league stage after their quarter-final game was cut short by rain. <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu had won nine out of nine matches in Group C, while Chhattisgarh emerged victorious in five out of eight games in Group A. Mumbai won four. <p></p> <p></p>While Tamil Nadu will take on Gujarat in the semifinals on Wednesday, hosts Karnataka will clash with Chhattisgarh on the same day. <p></p> <p></p>In pursuit of a revised target of 195 from 39 overs, Mumbai were cruising at 95 for no loss in 11.3 overs with young Yashasvi Jaiswal batting on 60 (38 balls, 5 fours, 5 sixes) and Aditya Tare on 31. <p></p> <p></p>However, the skies opened up and the match was abandoned, ending Mumbai's topsy-turvy campaign. <p></p> <p></p>As per rules, Mumbai needed to bat a minimum of 20 overs to get a result in this game. But as the game was abandoned, Chhattisgarh qualified. <p></p> <p></p>Put into bat at the Alur cricket stadium III, Mumbai bowlers did well to restrict Chhattisgarh to 190 for six in 45.4 overs, when play was halted due to rain. <p></p> <p></p>Experienced medium-pacer Dhawal Kulkarni sent Chhattisgarh opener Jiwanjyot Singh Chauhan (0) back after he edged to keeper Tare. <p></p> <p></p>Shardul Thakur got rid off Shashank Chandrakar to leave Chhattisgarh in trouble at 3 for 2. <p></p> <p></p>Ashutosh Pratap Singh (27), who came in at one drop, was unable to convert his start as Chhattisgarh slipped to 40 for 3. <p></p> <p></p>Skipper Harpreet Singh Bhatia (83) and Amandeep Khare (59 not out) led the recovery with a 135-run stand for the fourth wicket. <p></p> <p></p>Bhatia hit four boundaries and as many sixes in his 108-ball knock, while Khare hit four fours and a six. <p></p> <p></p>However, when it looked like the duo was taking the game away from Mumbai, all-rounder Shubham Ranjane dismissed Bhatia and Chhattisgarh. <p></p> <p></p>But their splendid bowling effort eventually went in vain. <p></p> <p></p>In the other last eight game, Punjab restricted Tamil Nadu to 174 for six in 39 overs when rain stopped play. Tamil Nadu had a shaky start after openers Murali Vijay (22) and Abhinav Mukund (17) failed to convert starts. <p></p> <p></p>But the in-form Baba Aparajith came up with a patient 76-ball 56 (2 fours, 2 sixes) to pull his side out of trouble. He lacked support as all-rounder Vijay Shankar (13) and skipper Dinesh Karthik (11) didn't last long enough. <p></p> <p></p>Thanks to Washingston Sundar's unbeaten 35 off 39 balls, Tamil Nadu breached the 170-run mark. <p></p> <p></p>Punjab were 52 for two in 12.2 overs, having lost opener Abhishek Sharma (6) and Anmolpreet Singh (9) when rain stopped play. The game was eventually called off. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief scores:</strong> <p></p> <p></p>Chhattisgarh 190 for 6 in 45.4 overs (Harpreet Singh Bhatia 83, Amandeep Khare 59 not out, Dhawal Kulkarni 2 for 9) vs Mumbai 95 for no loss in 11.3 overs (Yashasvi Jaiswal 60 not out, Aditya Tare 31 not out). <p></p> <p></p>Tamil Nadu 174 for 6 in 39 overs (Baba Aparajith 56, Washington Sundar 35 not out, Gurkeerat Singh 2 for 25) versus Punjab 52 for 2 in 12.2 overs.
