Abhinav Mukund, B Aparajith and Dinesh Karthik scored half-centuries as Tamil Nadu beat Rajasthan by six wickets in Jaipur.

Batting first, Rajasthan posted 261 for 9 with Arjit Gupta scoring 77 from No. 6 and Rahul Chahar blasting 48 off 25 from No. 8. Rajasthan were 53 for 4 before they recovered to a competitive total.

Tamil Nadu were steady in their chase with Abhinav (75) and Aparajith (52) adding 114 for the second wicket before Karthik (52*) and Shahrukh Khan (48* off 39) finished the game with an unbroken 100-run stand for the fifth wicket. Interestingly, the Rajasthan side had a Salman Khan in their ranks!

A four-wicket haul from pacer Roosh Kalaria gave Gujarat a 38-run win over Bengal in Jaipur.

Gujarat posted 253 for 8 with contributions from many, although only Bhargav Merai (63) scored a half-century. Captain and opener Parthiv Patel made 17. Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda picked up three wickets.
