Uttar Pradesh 279 for 6 (Kaif 68, Murtaza 49*, Gupta 46, Rangarajan 3-84) v Tamil Nadu
Scorecard

Two partnerships, of 66 and 92 runs respectively, carried Uttar Pradesh to 279 for 6 amid regular wickets against Tamil Nadu on the opening day in Chennai. Captain Mohammad Kaif, for whom this season has been productive in terms of runs, scored a half-century before falling to offspinner Malolan Rangarajan, who claimed three wickets. Kaif's stand with Umang Sharma took their side to 123 for 2, but then four wickets fell for 64 runs. In trouble at 187 for 6, Ali Murtaza and Prashant Gupta added a further 92 runs before stumps.

Tamil Nadu's M Vijay took his third wicket in first-class wicket in the two overs he bowled.

Baroda 256 for 3 (Devdhar 104*, Waghmode 87, Wakaskar 50) v Maharashtra
Scorecard

An unbeaten 172-run partnership between Kedar Devdhar and Aditya Waghmode took Baroda to a strong 256 for 3 against Maharashtra in Pune. Baroda started their innings poorly with two quick wickets falling to seamer Shrikant Mundhe before the 10th over of the match. But opener Saurabh Wakaskar stuck with No. 3 Waghmode to add 70, before falling for 50 to spinner Akshay Darekar. Devdhar, the next batsman in, dominated the stand with Waghmode to reach a hundred before stumps. Waghmode ended the day with an unbeaten 87.

Vidarbha 188 for 8 (Badani 40) v Odisha
Scorecard

Odisha's combined bowling effort, led by medium-pacer Biplab Samantray, reduced Vidarbha to 188 for 8 on the first day in Cuttack. Five batsmen got starts, but no one scored more than 40. The innings was based on two productive stands, for the fourth wicket worth 74 between Amol Umarhande and Hemang Badani, and for the sixth wicket worth 49 between Gaurav Upadhyaya and captain Sairaj Bahutule.

The scoring was slow throughout the day. Basant Mohanty, who bowled the maximum number of overs of all the bowlers, registered an economy rate of 1.06.

Haryana 293 for 7 (Mishra 86*, Jayant 64*, Sunny 56) v Karnataka
Scorecard

Hubli and its 31 degrees sunshine provided Haryana a stark contrast from the chilly, foggy north Indian towns where they have played much of the season, but for the first two sessions against Karnataka their batting floundered just as it has so often over the past two months. The several thousand fans who turned up to see the first first-class match in Hubli for a couple of decades would have returned home a happier lot had it not been for Amit Mishra and Jayant Yadav's 125-run eighth wicket stand that lifted Haryana to 293 for 7.
