Andhra Pradesh picked up their first win of the season despite a century by Jammu & Kashmir's Parvez Rasool at the Gandhi Memorial Science College Ground in Jammu. Rasool and AP Singh, who scored 54, managed to hold Andhra at bay for 10 overs on the fourth morning, but once P Vijaykumar dismissed Singh, the tail didn't hang around too long and J & K were all out for 252, leaving Andhra plenty of time to chase 130. Andhra captain Syed Sahabuddin rounded off a productive match with a five-for giving him eight wickets for the match to go with his 71 in Andhra's first innings. Venugopal Rao got 54 in Andhra's second as the visitors won by seven wickets.
Maharashtra widened the gap at the top of the Group B table to four, as they picked up three points from their game against Kerala at the Nehru Stadium in Kochi. After three rain-affected days, there was finally a whole day's play, and it was just enough for the Maharashtra bowlers to skittle Kerala out for 221 and take the points for a first-innings lead. After a solid start thanks to opener Abhishek Hegde's 56, Kerala lost three quick wickets to go from 97 for 1 to 128 for 4. Captain Raiphi Gomez and Sreekumar Nair offered some resistance with a 50-run partnership but Kerala lost their last six wickets for 43 runs and couldn't last till stumps. Offspinner Ganesh Gaikwad and seamer Samad Fallah took three wickets each for Maharashtra.
