Group B: Vidarbha rout Haryana

A stupendous bowling effort led by Darshan Nalkande (4 for 25) helped bowl Haryana out for just 83, setting up a big win for Vidarbha.

Haryana opted to bat but put up an abject batting display. They slipped to 36 for 8 before legspinners Amit Mishra (26) and Yuzvendra Chahal (20) shared 41 for the ninth wicket. Pacers Nalkande and Yash Thakur (2 for 16) ran through the line up as Haryana were bowled out in just 30.5 overs.

Batting first, Delhi posted only 204 for 8 in 50 overs with Dhawan (54) and Himmat Singh (64) scoring half-centuries. The other batsmen failed to convert starts, and UP's Mohsin Khan picked up three wickets as Delhi continued to falter through their innings.

UP lost their openers in the first five overs of the chase but Priyam Garg (79 off 52) and Upendra Yadav (57 off 62) slammed fifties to guide them from there. They shared 107 for the third wicket, setting up a victory in just 29 overs.

Punjab's No. 4 Ramandeep Singh top-scored with 62 in the chase. They were 167 for 5 in 39 overs when his dismissal triggered a collapse. The lower order couldn't step up and Punjab lost with an over to spare. Pacer Pankaj Jaiswal picked up 3 for 62.
