Jharkhand 9 for 2 trail Haryana 453 (Sunny 137, Rana 83, Rao 4-129) by 444 runs

Sunny Singh completed a fine hundred and put Haryana on the road to the Plate Group final. Sunny's tenacious 137 and valuable contributions from the lower order took Haryana to a healthy 453 in the semi-final against Jharkhand in Chandigarh. Sachin Rana stroked a plucky 83 and had two good partnerships with Ajay Ratra (40) and Amit Mishra (47). The day got better for Haryana when they snapped up two Jharkhand wickets in the four overs that they got before stumps.

Himachal Pradesh 9 for 0 v Services

It turned out to be another damp day at Dharamsala with only seven overs of play possible between Himachal Pradesh and Services. Himachal were 9 for no loss when play was called off due to bad light. In case there is no result in the game, the winner will be decided by the toss of a coin.
