Kerala 93 (Rana 4-27) and 35 for 3 trail Haryana 382 (Sunny Singh 140, Dewan 56) by 254 runs
Sunny Singh scored a century to give Haryana a massive lead in Rohtak before the bowlers knocked the top off the Kerala second innings to set up the possibility of an innings victory in three days. Sunny Singh, resuming on 31, went on to score 140 and, though contributions from the middle and lower order weren't substantial, it was enough for Haryana to secure a 289-run advantage. Sreekumar Nair was the most impressive bowler, taking 4 for 14 off 14 overs, as Haryana were eventually dismissed for 382. Kerala, who were routed for 93 in the first innings, struggled again, losing the openers with the score on 14. Sachin Baby was then lbw to Amit Mishra as they ended the day on 35 for 3.
Jammu and Kashmir 147 (ID Singh 64) and 53 for 2 trail Andhra 318 (Shankara Rao 66, Sahabuddin 52, Sameer Ali 4-74) by 118 runs
A first-innings collapse and early hiccups in the second left Jammu and Kashmir battling for survival against Andhra in Anantapur. They folded for 147 after Andhra had ended their first-innings on 318, conceding a lead of 171. DP Vijaykumar and D shivkumar caused most of the damage, taking three wickets each, while Ian Dev Singh top-scored with 64. Ian Dev Singh failed in the follow-on, however, and was bowled by Syed Sahabuddin for 5. Hardeep Singh was then caught behind, also off Sahabuddin, reducing Jammu and Kashmir to 14 for 2. Hiken Shah scored 30 to steer his team to 53 at stumps.
Tripura 44 for 0 trail Goa 201 (Mota 3-66, Chanda 3-38) by 157 runs
Tripura covered considerable ground on another shortened day in Agartala, dismissing Goa for 201 and then progressing to 44 for no loss in the 59.2 overs that were possible. Goa were on 91 for 2 overnight with S Sriram on 38 off 31 balls but he did not add to his score on the second day and was the first of Wilkin Mota's three wickets. Goa were struggling at 118 for 6 at one stage before Shadab Jakati and Robin D'Souza lifted them towards 201. Tushar Saha dismissed Jakati for 26 and finished with 2 for 22. Building on his sound performance with the ball, Mota remained unbeaten on 23 at stumps.
Jharkhand 276 for 4 (Tiwary 103, Vardhan 101*) lead Rajasthan 246 (Pranay Sharma 64, Gupta 77, Nadeem 6-74) by 30 runs
Twin centuries from Saurabh Tiwary and Manish Vardhan gave Jharkhand the first-innings lead on the second day in Dhanbad after their bowlers had dismissed Rajasthan on the opening day. Replying to Rajasthan's 246, Jharkhand lost their openers cheaply to Pankaj Singh and were 18 for 2 when Tiwary joined Vardhan. They added 155 for the third wicket - Tiwary contributing 103 - and put their team in control. Vardhan was more sedate, taking 237 balls to score 103, but he remained unbeaten to continue Jharkhand's dominance on the third day.
Assam 392 for 8 (Jadhav 111, Tarjinder Singh 117, Sinha 51) v Vidarbha
Dheeraj Jadhav and Tarjinder Singh scored centuries to lead Assam's strong progress on the second day against Vidarbha in Guwahati. Jadhav, resuming overnight on 54, went on to score 111 while Tarjinder converted his start to 117. They added 151 for the fourth wicket before Jadhav was lbw to Umesh Yadav. Tarjinder stayed firm and added valuable runs with the lower order, extending Assam's total to 392 for 8 at stumps.
