Baroda 301 (Waghmode 71, Rayudu 64, Chauhan 60, Shah 50) and 4 for 0 beat Odisha 181 (Podder 82, Bhatt 6-73) and 123 (K Patel 4-36) by ten wickets

Odisha's batting keeled over for the second time in the match to help Baroda to all seven points in Vadodara. Five of Odisha's top six made single-digit scores as their side collapsed to 56 for 6, still needing plenty to make Baroda bat again. The lower order showed a bit more spine than the specialist batsmen in the side to help Odisha reach 123, at least averting the ignominy of an innings defeat. Debutant left-arm spinner Ketul Patel was Baroda's most successful bowler, taking 4 for 36. Baroda were left needing four runs to win, and they didn't even have to score those off the bat as four byes confirmed their victory. The result took Baroda, at least temporarily, to the top of the table with 20 points. Odisha have slipped from second to third place, and still remain strong contenders for a place in the knockouts.

Vidarbha 237 for 6 (Badani 69*) trail Uttar Pradesh 548 for 8 dec (Dagar 116, Alam 100, Kaif 85, Chawla 85) by 311 runs

Uttar Pradesh finally declared their first innings on the third morning, after Arif Alam reached his second successive century, and then steadily consolidated their advantage with regular strikes against Vidarbha. Hemang Badani, the batsman formerly of Tamil Nadu, top scored with an unbeaten 69 but with UP having scored a mountain of runs, Vidarbha needed big hundreds to stand a serious chance of getting the first-innings lead. Instead, opener Faiz Fazal and No. 3 Amol Ubarhande produced 40s, which were not enough to prevent UP from dominating the game.

Haryana 257 (Yadav 63) and 75 for 2 trailMaharashtra 540 for 8 dec (Atitkar 190, Jadhav 109, Bawne 86) by 208 runs

Maharashtra gave themselves a chance of their first outright victory of the season by taking a massive lead in the first innings and setting Haryana's fragile batting the challenge of seeing out the best part of four sessions to survive. Sangram Atitkar, who reached his century on Sunday, reached his career-best score of 190, and Kedar Jadhav made a hundred to lift Maharashtra towards 500. Faced with a 283-run deficit, Haryana lost their openers in the 26 overs before stumps, and need to find some batting solidity on the final day to salvage a point.
