Hyderabad Batsmen go in a Shell

Starting day four at 30/1 against Kerala, Hyderabad's batsmen had a big task to clear the deficit of 495. Instead they played the waiting game and could only make 228 from 112 overs.

Bavanka Sandeep scored 56 from 155, while Kolla Sumanth managed 42 from 136 balls. In the end they did manage to salvage a draw and get one point for their effort.

Tamil Nadu Finally Bat

After waiting for two days, Tamil Nadu got a chance to bat against Madhya Pradesh. In a rain-affected encounter, they managed to score 236/4.

Skipper Baba Indrajith scored a ton (103) and put his team in a strong position. The match ended in a drab draw and both teams shared a point each.

Bad Light Saves Jharkhand

Assam needed 276 runs to win on the final day and were in a strong position to achieve that target. At one stage they were cruising at 140/2 in 39 overs, and with Sibsankar Roy (52) and Gokul Sharma (48) at the crease, a win for Assam looked possible.

That is when bad light stopped play, with around 30 overs still left in the day.
