Andhra Pradesh notched up their second win of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, beating Goa by 16 runs in a rain-affected encounter in Vishakapatnam. In a game reduced to 17 overs-a-side, Goa had left Andhra reeling at 74 for 7 in the 14th over, before the eighth-wicket pair of captain Bodapati Sumanth (47) and Duvvarapu Shivkumar (22) lead the recovery with a stand of 40, and took their team to a respectable 118. The Goan reply was led by their captain Sagun Kamat, who made a run-a-ball 41, but there was little support available from the rest of the line-up as the visitors fell short of their target. Only three Goan batsmen reached double-figures; the trio of Doddapaneni Kalyankrishna, Shankara Rao and Syed Sahabuddin took seven wickets between them to ensure victory.

The two other contests, between Hyderabad and Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka and Kerala, both at Vishakapatnam, were washed out without a ball being bowled.
