TN vs Gujarat: The only televised match. The first three overs are just in. Match delayed due to wet outfield.
Mumbai vs Delhi: The battle to follow? Mumbai at 123/4. Another poor effort from the top six after the last one against TN. One may wonder why they still open with a wicketkeeper. Wickets taken by all except Pawan Suyal. Rahane missing, while Rohit Sharma is at the crease unbeaten on 29. Mumbai are in the knockouts anyway.
Karnataka vs UP: The other battle to follow? Karnataka are well placed at 93/3, with Manish Pandey unbeaten on 25. At least they don't do something silly like open with wicketkeepers, but Uthappa has been woefully short of runs, while Vinay hasn't quite been among the wickets, partly due to Joshi's dominance, though time on the India bench pushed him lower down the wickets tally- but time on that important bench is more important for him. He doesn't need to prove himself in domestic cricket now. Chawla, though, is short of wickets and has had a poor Ranji so far, which won't do him any good in making a comeback to the national team. Sad, as he's a rather versatile player.
Baroda vs HP: Baroda may have relegated HP to Plate by crunching them at 89/8. Bharghav Bhatt took five, while, as usual, Yusuf Pathan took one, and Munaf two.
Haryana vs Orissa: Or is Haryana knocking Orissa down to Plate? They're at 113/6, with the all-rounders scalping most. Sachin Rana took three, while Joginder Sharma scalped two. Leggie Amit Mishra, much like Chawla, hasn't had a good season at all, with a single wicket. That's really disappointing. All-rounder Sachin Rana, though, has done well, and though he hasn't scalped loads of wickets like Sharma, he's still a better package.
Railways vs Bengal: Two matches old, and in his first innings, Gitimoy Basu scores 52. There's little to look at otherwise. Murali Kartik has fallen away after an impressive start, but he's done better than other veteran spinners Chawla and Mishra.
Saurashtra vs Assam: Look away. Relegation battle.
