Railways 216 for 5 (JP Yadav 60, Bangar 55) beat Delhi 213 for 8 (Jadeja 98, Harvinder 4-37) by 5 wickets
Scorecard

Jai Prakash Yadav continued his dream season and propelled Railways to an emphatic five-wicket win over Delhi in the pre-quarterfinals of the Ranji Trophy one-day tournament. Yadav's two early wickets pegged Delhi back in the morning before his thrilling 60 off 65 balls, including three sixes, ensured that Railways cruised home with 8.5 overs to spare. Sanjay Bangar also contributed a composed 55 and shared a vital 106-run partnership with Yadav in the middle overs. Ajay Jadeja managed a steady 98 for Delhi but 213 proved too small a total in the end.

Orissa 285 for 4 (Das 82, Parida 53, Mohapatra 50) beat Karnataka 284 for 9 (Rowland 104, Somasundar 77, Behara 4-61) by 6 wickets
Scorecard

Despite making a formidable 284 in their first innings, Karnataka were shunted out of the tournament largely due to some fantastic hitting from the Orissa batsmen. BBCC Mohapatra began the carnage with a 26-ball 52, including 4 sixes and five fours, before Shiv Sundar Das and Rashmi Ranjan Parida raced to a 91-run partnership in quick time. Das anchored the innings with a rapid 82 as Orissa reached the target with more than four overs to spare. Earlier, Karnataka rode on Barrington Rowland's century to post a competetive total. Sujit Somasundar, the captain, also chipped in with 77.
