Meghalaya vs Sikkim:
With the eighth wicket of Mandup Bhutia falling in the 46th over, Sikkim is still 105 runs away from the target.

Nagaland vs Mizoram: A target of 348 runs proved to be too much to handle for Mizoram as it played its full quota of 50 overs to score 318/6.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: Mumbai skipper Shreyas slams a hundred as his side thumps Maharashtra by six wickets.

Haryana vs Saurashtra: Saurashtra just manages to eke out a nervy win with five balls to spare!

Delhi vs Pondicherry: Pondicherry loses three wickets for as many runs to slump to its second straight loss in the 2020-21 season of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.

J & K vs Services: Fifties from Samad, Khajuria and Shubham Singh Pundir help Jammu and Kashmir pip Services by three wickets.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: GAME. SET. MATCH. Chandigarh romps home!

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: As Shreyas looks set to convert his fifty into a big hundred, Dube departs only three short of his own half-century. Mumbai 239/4 in 41.4 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Well… well… well… What is happening here?! Chandigarh has now lost three wickets for one run as the Bengal pace duo of Akash Deep and Ishan Porel have started breathing fire on the pitch, right out of nowhere! Are we going to witness something special today? Chandigarh 230/5 in 46.2 overs.

Assam vs Arunachal Pradesh: Rahul’s century goes in vain as Sibsankar Roy and Denish post fifties to help Assam across the finish line with a five-wicket win.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Chandigarh, in its debut in the Elite group, is doing some serious giant-slaying! The visiting team’s batsmen are toying with the Bengal bowlers at their very den. Understandably, there are quite a few unhappy faces in the makeshift dugout near the boundary ropes, including that of Bengal coach Arun Lal’s. The side surely has some thinking to do after this (pretty much) one-sided fixture. Chandigarh 226/2 in 44.1 overs.

Rajasthan vs Himachal: Skipper Dhawan, unbeaten on 73, sees Himachal through despite a few jump-scares a few overs ago. Four points for the side!

Haryana vs Saurashtra: Three quick wickets have now piled the pressure back on the Saurashtra batsmen. Prerak Mankad, Snell Patel and Divyaraj Chauhan have all been sent back, courtesy Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohit Sharma. Saurashtra 189/5 in 36 overs.

J & K vs Services: Shubham Khajuria is inching towards triple digits as J & K looks all set to move to the upper half of the Elite Group E table with an emphatic win over Services. J & K 213/4 in 35.1 overs, needs 62 runs to win.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: While Satyajeet Bachhav has picked up the crucial wickets of Prithvi and Suryakumar Yadav, Kazi has gotten rid of Yashasvi. Shivam Dube has joined his skipper Shreyas Iyer at the crease even as the target is still quite some distance away. Mumbai 153/3 in 30.5 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Two big wickets have now come Bengal’s way! First Manan Vohra and now Arslan. Can Bengal turn things around from here? Chandigarh 148/2 in 31 overs.

Delhi vs Pondicherry: At the stroke of the first drinks break of the innings, S Suresh Kumar and Paras Dogra are looking to be extra cautious with their shot selection with much of the work still left to be done and two top-order batsman already back in the pavilion. Pondicherry 68/2 in 13 overs.

Nagaland vs Mizoram: Despite losing two early wickets, Mizoram has ambled along nicely, thanks to opener Pratik Desai’s run-a-ball fifty. Mizoram 86/2 in 18.3 overs.

Rajasthan vs Himachal: Rajasthan clearly won’t let go without a fight as it gives Himachal a taste of its own medicine, bagging four wickets for just 22 runs. Himachal 84/4 in 14.4 overs.

Meghalaya vs Sikkim: Wicketkeeper-batsman Ashish Thapa and captain Robin Bist carry on the repair job even as Sikkim reaches 50 after the side lost opener Nilesh Lamichaney in the very first over. Sikkim 52/1 in 13 overs.

J & K vs Services: Meanwhile, Abdul Samad has turned on the heat at Salt Lake! The Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman has slammed a 30-ball fifty, studded with six fours and three sixes. J & K 101/2 in 15.2 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Chandigarh’s Arslan Khan has raced away to his half-century off 53 deliveries. The opening left-hand-right-hand combination has only frustrated the Bengal bowlers, thus far. Chandigarh 77/0 in 15.1 overs.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: Yashasvi Jaiswal and Prithvi Shaw, meanwhile, are off to a sedate start. The openers are clearly not willing to take any unnecessary risks. Mumbai 30/0 in 7.1 overs.

Assam vs Arunachal Pradesh: Pallav Kumar Das and Denish Das’ 62-run opening stand comes to a screeching halt as Rakesh Kumar tastes blood. Assam 62/1 in 6.4 overs.

Uttarakhand vs Manipur: Kamal Singh and Jay Bista take Uttarakhand past the 60-run mark unfazed. They are in a hurry to see off the day at the SSN College Ground as Manipur’s young captain Rex Singh has been kept relatively silent. Uttarakhand 64/0 in 10 overs.

J & K vs Services: Commentator’s curse! Pulkit Narang and Varun Choudhary strike! Wicketkeeper-batsman Raina departs, trapped in front of the sticks. Vivrant, bowled, follows his partner to the dugout shortly after. Shubham Khajuria and Abdul Samad are the new men at the crease. J & K 43/2 in 7.3 overs.

Haryana vs Saurashtra: Saurashtra’s Avi Barot has been castled right at the end of the fifth over! Arun Chaprana provides the much-needed breakthrough. Saurashtra 30/1 in 5 overs.

J & K vs Services: Openers Vivrant Sharma and Suryansh Raina have looked confident from the get-go. J & K 36/0 in 5 overs, needs 239 to win.

INNINGS BREAK

Services 274/7 (50 ov) vs J & K

Bengal 253/9 (50 ov) vs Chandigarh

Haryana 264 (50 ov) vs Saurashtra

Maharashtra 279/9 (50 ov) vs Mumbai

Delhi 354/4 (50 ov) vs Pondicherry

Rajasthan 199 (48 ov) vs Himachal

Arunachal Pradesh 222/7 (50 ov) vs Assam

Manipur 148/9 (50 ov) vs Uttarakhand

Nagaland 347/9 (50 ov) vs Mizoram

Meghalaya 319/7 (50 ov) vs Sikkim


Maharashtra vs Mumbai:
After Dhawal Kulkarni completes his fifer with Kazi’s wicket, three more dismissals – including the prized scalp of Nahar – follow for mere 12 runs. Maharashtra 276/8 in 49.2 overs.

Meghalaya vs Sikkim: Captain Punit Bisht’s hundred coupled with Sanjay Yadav’s quickfire 73* helps Meghalaya put up a mammoth 319 runs on the board. Seems ages ago now since the side was struggling at 35/3 by the end of the 13th over.

Rajasthan vs Himachal: Annihilation! Rajasthan has just lost five wickets for 12 runs with Himachal captain Rishi Dhawan’s figures reading: 9-1-27-6. Pretty much self-explanatory.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: Meanwhile, a completely different scenario awaits us at the K. L. Saini Stadium as Maharashtra goes past 250 for the loss of four wickets! Yash Nahar and Azim Kazi have raced away to their respective hundreds negating all the earlier efforts from Mumbai paceman Kulkarni.

Uttarakhand vs Manipur: Kishan Thokchom falls as Uttarakhand continues to make short work of the Manipuri batsmen. Will the chase be a walk in the park for Uttarakhand? We will find out soon enough. Remember that Manipur has a pacer in its ranks who goes by the name of Rex Singh and had claimed all 10 wickets in an innings during the 2018 Cooch Behar Trophy! Manipur 142/9 in 47.5 overs.

Nagaland vs Mizoram: Shrikant Mundhe and Hem Chetri’s successive dismissals following Binny’s departure won’t do much to bother Nagaland as it closes in on the 300-run mark. Nagaland 283/6 in 44 overs.

Delhi vs Pondicherry: TONS FOR RANA AND SHOREY! Absolutely nothing has gone right for Pondicherry since it pushed Delhi on the backfoot with two quick scalps during the initial moments for the game. Delhi 249/2 in 40.1 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Wickets are falling in a heap at the Eden Gardens! Shahbaz goes first, lobbing the ball right back to veteran spinner Bipul Sharma. Writtick follows, run out, while looking to find a non-existent single. Arnab falls soon after, caught in the deep after a bit of juggle by Jaskarandeep Singh. Bengal 204/8 in 45 overs.

J & K vs Services: Centurion Chauhan’s departure is followed by the dismissal of Mohit Kumar only three balls later. Services 215/7 in 44.1 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Shahbaz Ahmed gets to his fifty off 60 deliveries with a single. However, with much of the rebuilding work still remaining, all eyes would be on the 26-year-old all-rounder to carry on with the good work in the middle. Bengal 188/5 in 42 overs.

Delhi vs Pondicherry: Both Nitish Rana and Dhruv Shorey look set to post a big hundred after Pondicherry had earlier pushed Delhi onto the backfoot, having dismissed superstar Shikhar Dhawan and Himmat Singh cheaply. Delhi 174/2 in 32.1 overs.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: Fifties from Yash Nahar and Azim Kazi have helped Maharashtra stage a resilient fightback after things were seeming to slip out of the side’s hands, courtesy a four-wicket haul from Dhawal Kulkarni. Maharashtra 157/4 in 35 overs.

J & K vs Services: And it is a century for Chauhan! His knock, studded with 13 boundaries and a maximum, has helped Services bounce back into the game after early setbacks. Services 175/5 in 38.1 overs.

Uttarakhand vs Manipur: Johnson Singh and Kangabam Priyojit continue to fight a losing battle to put up a competitive target on the board after Rex Singh’s dismissal in the 29th over. Manipur 103/5 in 34.1 overs.

Nagaland vs Mizoram: Rongsen Jonathan takes over from Sedezhalie and gets a half-century too. Stuart Binny is giving him good company in the middle. Nagaland 190/2 in 33 overs.

Assam vs Arunachal Pradesh: Dalal’s fifty has been the only highlight of Arunachal’s batting, thus far. Arunachal Pradesh 118/5 in 32.1 overs.

Rajasthan vs Himachal: Ayush Janwal strikes! Arijit Gupta departs, only five short of his fifty, as Rajasthan loses its fourth wicket, also five short of 100 in 23.3 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Kaif Ahmad and Abhimanyu Easwaran, who were looking to be in fine touch, have made their way back to the dugout leaving Bengal reeling at 127/5 in 31 overs.

J & K vs Services: Ravi Chauhan’s unbeaten 70-run knock has steadied the Services ship, despite the side having lost two early wickets within the first three overs. Services 120/3 in 29 overs.

Haryana vs Saurashtra: It’s all happening at the ’22 Yards’ in Salt Lake! Opener Chaitanya Bishnoi reaches his fifty moments after Haryana enters triple figures on the scoreboard and loses the young left-handed batsman Yashu Sharma. Haryana 106/3 in 25.5 overs.

Assam vs Arunachal Pradesh: After Techi Doria’s dismissal, Arunachal Pradesh’s Kamsha Yangfo and wicketkeeper Rahul Dalal have managed to hold the ends together for some time now. Will this prove to be the game-changing partnership for the north-eastern side? Arunachal Pradesh 49/2 in 16 overs.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: WRECKER-IN-CHIEF! 6-2-19-4 read Dhawal Kulkarni’s figures after Prithvi Shaw takes a fine catch to dismiss Ankeet Bawane. Maharashtra 38/4 in 8.5 overs.

Nagaland vs Mizoram: Sedezhalie scores the first half-century of Day 4 as Nagaland continues to call the shots at the IC-Gurunanak College Ground, Chennai. Nagaland 96/1 in 16 overs.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: At the drinks break in Kolkata, the tables have turned and how! Three quick, crucial wickets have pegged Bengal back, the last one being that of Anustup Majumdar. Jagjit Singh Sandhu, at short square leg, takes another comfortable catch to dismiss the home-team captain. Bengal 55/3 in 15 overs.

Uttarakhand vs Manipur: Wicketkeeper Saurabh Rawat is having a field day behind the sticks. He pouches two to send back openers Narsingh Yadav and Al Bashid. Manipur 10/2 in 5.1 overs.

Delhi vs Pondicherry: Sagar Vijay Trivedi’s back-to-back wickets of Shikhar Dhawan and Himmat Singh have Pondicherry assuming control over things after Delhi got off to a brisk start at the Jaipuria Vidhyalaya Ground. Delhi 25/2 in 5.5 overs.

Maharashtra vs Mumbai: Mumbai’s Dhawal Kulkarni has sprung right into action, getting rid of Maharashtra skipper and opener Ruturaj Gaikwad, Naushad Shaikh and all-rounder Kedar Jadhav. It will be an early shift for Ankeet Bawane. Maharashtra 34/3 in 6.5 overs.

Meghalaya vs Sikkim: Welcome to the VB Nest in Singara Chennai, where Sikkim’s Nitesh Kumar Gupta has dismissed two top-order batsmen for nought! Meghalaya in deep trouble at 7/2 in 1.5 overs.

Rajasthan vs Himachal: And gone! The Himachal bowlers look to be on a mission here. Both of Rajasthan’s openers have been sent back into the hut with only 13 on the board midway through the fourth over.

Bengal vs Chandigarh: Bengal openers Shreevats Goswami and Vivek Singh are making good use of what looks like a well-rolled and good batting track at the Eden Gardens. Chandigarh, meanwhile, lets an opportunity slip as Gaurav Gambhir, at mid-wicket, spills a dolly. Bengal 24/0 in 5.3 overs.

J & K vs Services: Umar Nazir has provided J & K with an excellent start! The medium-pacer not only trapped Nakul Verma plumb in front in the very first over but later also went on to dismiss Rahul Singh Gahlaut. Services 22/2 in 5.4 overs.

DAY 3 RECAP

Before we kickstart the day’s proceedings, let’s help you relive all the action from Monday as you sip on your morning coffee.

While Robin Uthappa, with a match-winning knock of 81(55) for Kerala, gave the Chennai Super Kings fans all the reasons to whistle louder, R. Samarth’s highest List A score (158 n.o., 144b) propelled Karnataka to a massive 267-run win over Bihar.

It was also a brilliant day at the office for pacers Cheepurapalli Stephen (3/46) and Girinath Reddy (2/33) as they helped set up an easy seven-wicket win for Andhra over Tamil Nadu in an Elite Group B fixture.

Meanwhile, Gujarat recorded its second successive win in the tournament, beating Goa by eight wickets.
