Bengal batsmen faltered yet again to give away a 74 run lead to Tamil Nadu. After the hosts posted 263 on the board, a superb spell from M Mohammed(4 for 39) and spinner Rahil Shah(5 for 46) put Bengal on backfoot, as they were bundled out for a paltry 189. Tamil Nadu were 12 for 1 at stumps, with 86 run lead.
On the other hand, Mumbai’s Royston Dias (3-52) crippled Gujarat batting line up to restrict them to 232/8, still trailing Mumbai by 65 runs.
Delhi may suffer innings defeat at the hands of Punjab after a batting collapse saw them lose six wickets for 106 in response to Punjab’s 282. Although Gambhir and Dalal laid a solid foundation for the team putting on 72 run partnership, Punjab bowlers quickly gained upperhand in the match.
