    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.

    Munaf ends with three wickets, he is performing consistently this year - hope he keeps it up.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Meanwhile, Vinay Kumar takes two, on the back of a fifty. The race for wickets is getting hotter, with Tyagi, Abdulla, Joginder, Bharghav, Narwal and (guess who?) JP Yadav getting a lot. Chawla just took five in the latest game.

    Results look likely, as can be seen with Delhi/Mumbai, Haryana/Orissa, Baroda/HP, and possibly UP/Karnataka and the relegation battle Saurashtra/Assam. There seems a deliberate attempt to get results, and pitches (and thus the curators' efforts) are cited as a reason.

    Today's action on television is again delayed by a wet outfield. Cricinfo doesn't update the scores on time, so expect first-session scores well into the second session.

    Spinners are in better form now. Mishra has four (including three in the first innings) and Chawla took five, and now it's the turn of Ashwin to take five, yet again.

    Akash Chopra's concerns notwithstanding, Rajasthan are at 551/6. Of these runs, Chopra has scored 262, even when he felt that Maharashtra would get the most out of home advantage, against a better team, in his blog.

    So he could get picked in CPL without counting as a retired player, IMO.

    Talking of Bengal, captain Manoj Tiwary was out due to a dubious decision, and tweeted about it in a manner not meant for public consumption, calling the umpire a so-called Elite Panel member. He's now in trouble for that. One of the lows in an otherwise impressive performance this season. At present, he's had more centuries than fifties, and one rather offensive tweet picked up by DNA. As for Ganguly, he's been playing this match as practice for the forthcoming IPL. In other news on that front, Laxmi Ratan Shukla is unbeaten on 58.

    Baroda and Haryana join Karnataka in the quarters with wins over minnows. It's a pity they went up against relegation-threatened stragglers while the other contender, UP, had to face table-toppers Karnataka, who refused to go easy on the last game, inconsequential for them. Chawla has had a very good game here- first five wickets, then a century, but that couldn't help his team make the quarters.

    In the other group, Mumbai will be joined by TN and Railways, who have defeated Bengal by an innings and ten runs. Railways' seam-up bowler JP Yadav is running hot on the wickets tally yet again, just like he did five years ago, but his performance has been less emphatic, and he doesn't have the runs to back that up this time. Add to that the slightly irrelevant note of his slow-medium pace- India now have options who score more runs and also bowl faster, like one who's missed the entire league phase due to injury.

    Right now, there's a pitch report for this rain-affected TN/Guj game, and Amay Khurasiya suggests there's a lot of turn in the wicket, and it's not easy to bat on.

    Just how good is Rohit Sharma? He's maintaining an average of 61, with that triple, and has scored yet another century. Very impressive, especially for one typecast as a T20/IPL specialist. Badrinath, though, continues to impress, without luck or support from the five (not so) wise men.

    Vinay Kumar should be knocking on Test selection doors sooner than later, with wickets and runs this season.

    Tiwary made a post in facebook not twitter,btw.


    As for Sharma he is doing well this season ,very well in fact but Mumbai play on some of the flattest wickets in the country.

    For his 60 average,Rahane is averaging near to 68 and i would think for the last few years Jaffer would be somewhere near abouts too.

    He always had the talent ,but it was the temperament that was the issue.

    Seeing him consistently score big and not give it away this season is a real positive sign.

    Always mantained he should go back and play atleast 1/2 seasons of FC cricket before coming back into the Indian team and i think we should let him play atleast this full season before calling him back if we want too.

    As a limited-overs player, Rohit should be a certainty. He's done well lately in ODIs, and is one of India's best T20 batsmen. Tests are still a season away. He's a more versatile batsman, verrsatile across formats, as long as he can consistently play a long innings.
