Haryana lost their last eight wickets for 116 runs. However it was a phase of nine overs between 62nd and 71st that saw Haryana out of the contest losing five wickets for 15 runs. From 178 for 2 as they were consolidating, Haryana were 193 for 7 and they had no chance of a comeback after that.


Chaitanya Bishnoi (52) and Shivam Chauhan (43) added 87 runs for the third wicket before Chauhan was caught by Ishank Jaggi off Nadeem. It started the downslide as Rajat Paliwal (2) was next to go in identical manner, caught Jaggi off Nadeem's bowling.


Bishnoi was caught by substitute Pratyush Singh off medium pacer Kaushal Singh's bowling. RP Sharma (0) and Amit Mishra (0) were back in the hut soon.

10:32 (IST)

Former India U-19 captain Ishan Kishan, mentored by none other than MS Dhoni, provided a glimpse of his talent with a power-packed 86 off 61 balls that helped Jharkhand beat Haryana by five wickets to make it to their maiden semi-finals.


Chasing a target of 176, Jharkhand knocked off the runs in only 30.2 overs with Kishan hitting nine boundaries and six sixes as the eastern India state completely dominated proceedings for the entire duration of four days.


While Kishan, who now has 719 runs to his credit, finished with a flourish, left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem (4/78) and leg-spinner Samar Quadri (3/75) were instrumental in dismissing Haryana for 262 in their second innings.


 

10:32 (IST)

Samit Gohel (261*) struck his maiden double hundred in first class cricket in a dominating batting performance by Gujarat, who have taken an iron grip over their Ranji Trophy quarter-final against Odisha at the end of day four


Beginning at 246 for three, Gujarat ended the penultimate day at a strong 514 for eight to take their overall lead to 578, a position from where they can't lose and force an outright result on the final day.

26-year old Gohel had started at overnight score of 110 and at close he was unbeaten at 261, which came off 555 balls. Giving him company at close was Hardik Patel (11).


Gohel's knock was studded with 33 shots to the fence and one over it even as his other colleagues got starts but could not convert those into big ones.


Gohel's overnight partner Manpreet Juneja (24) added only 18 more runs to his Sunday's score while skipper Parthiv Patel made 40 before being bowled by Dhiraj Singh, who completed a five-for in Odisha's misery.

10:31 (IST)

Left-arm spinner Vijay Gohil registered his best first-class bowling figures to put defending champions Mumbai in firm control against Hyderabad in the quarterfinal.


Gohil picked up five wickets giving away just 28 runs from his 10 overs to reduce Hyderabad to 121 for seven while chasing gettable 232 runs for an outright win at stumps on the fourth and penultimate day of the match.


Besides Gohil, Abhishek Nayar (2/27) picked up two wickets for the 41-time winners.
Chasing a gettable target, Hyderabad put up a shoddy batting effort in their second innings with just four willow-wielders — Balchander Anirudh (40 not out), Tanmay Agarwal (29), Bavanaka Sandeep (25) and Kolla Sumanth (140) — managing double digit scores.
