A round-up of the Ranji Trophy Group A matches played on December 31, 2014

Bengal 210 (Easwaran 85, Tiwary 63, Thakur 5-59) and 129 for 0 (Das 80*, Banerjee 44*) drew with Mumbai 414 (Iyer 153, Nayar 65, Lad 64)
Scorecard
Mumbai took home three points from the drawn game against Bengal in Kolkata, after the final day was abandoned due to rain and a wet outfield. Bengal's openers had added an unbroken partnership of 129 runs on the third day after being asked to follow-on.
Tamil Nadu 213 (Abhinav 57, Indrajith 51, Ashish 6-86) and 133 for 3 dec (Abhinav 69) drew with Railways 236 (Ashish 51, Nandi 50, Anureet 35, Rangarajan 4-93)
Scorecard
The Railways lower order rallied and lifted their side to 236, securing a first-innings lead against Tamil Nadu on the fourth day of the match in Chennai. Railways resumed the day at 133 for 6 but fifties from Ashish Yadav and Arnab Nandi and a swift 35 from Anureet Singh helped them move past Tamil Nadu's first-innings score of 213.
Yadav and Nandi extended their partnership to 75 runs before Yadav was dismissed for 51. The last two wickets then put on 51 runs between them to lift Railways. Nandi and Anureet shared a 27-run, ninth-wicket stand before Anureet paired with Rohan Bhosale to add another 24 runs. Bhosale had been hit on the neck while fielding, on the third day, and had been taken to hospital. He walked in to bat at the fall of Nandi's wicket, with Railways still two runs away from securing a first-innings lead and he battled to 5 off 11 balls, remaining not out.
Tamil Nadu then batted out the remaining overs, reaching a score of 133 for 3, with Abhinav Mukund scoring his second fifty of the match.
Madhya Pradesh 178 (Ojha 42, Gagandeep 5-41) and 119 for 6 (f/o) (Saxena 34, Gagandeep 3-64) drew with Baroda 358 (Wakaskar 94, Hooda 85)
Scorecard
Fog and bad light allowed for only seven overs of play on the final morning of the match between Baroda and Madhya Pradesh, which ended in a draw.
After being dismissed for 178 in their first innings, Madhya Pradesh were asked to follow-on and they were struggling at 97 for 6 when play resumed on the fourth day. The overnight pair of Harpreet Singh and Ankit Sharma took the score to 119 for 6 before the match ended.
Jammu & Kashmir 199 for 8 (Ian Dev 103*, RP Singh 4-39) drew with Uttar Pradesh 299 for 5 dec (Srivastava 99, Verma 57, Dwivedi 52*)
Scorecard
Ian Dev Singh slammed a century and shared an unbroken 123-run, ninth-wicket stand with Samiullah Beigh as Jammu &Kashmir drew their game against Uttar Pradesh. J&K did not finish their first innings and as a result, both teams were awarded one point each from the game.

While Ian Dev finished unbeaten on 103 off 151 balls, Beigh scored 45 off 128 deliveries
