Odisha and Maharashtra settled for a draw in their Group A game at the Brabati Stadium in Cuttack, but the visitors took three points by virtue of a first-innings lead.

Resuming for an overnight score of 156 for 3, Maharashtra rode on a 113-run fourth-wicket partnership between Kedar Jadhav and Ankit Bawne. Jayant Behera brought an end to the partnership when he had Bawne caught behind for 44, after which Maharashtra declared on 289 for 4, with Jadhav getting to 100 not out.

Odisha needed 304 for an outright win, but Anupam Sanklecha had both Natraj Behera and Govinda Podder caught behind for single digit scores inside eight overs, leaving the home team on 26 for 2. Swapnil Gugale then dismissed Anurag Sarangi for 28 and ran out Girija Rout for 31, as the match headed for a draw. Odisha lost another wicket before finishing on 129 for 5. For his spell of 31-10-62-6 in the first innings, Shrikant Mundhe was adjudged the Man of the Match.
