Chennai

Skipper Dinesh Karthik with a brisk knock of 52 not out (52 balls, 4 fours, 1 six) saw the team home in the company of M Shahrukh Khan (48 not out, 39 balls, 6 fours).


The left-handed Mukund and Aparajith set the platform for Tamil Nadu after the aggressive N Jagadeesan (7) fell in the seventh over to left-arm pacer Aniket Choudhary.Mukund played some fine shots while Aparajith preferred to be watchful and rotated the strike well.


Earlier, sent in to bat by Tamil Nadu, the home team recovered from 53 for 4 to post 261 in the 50 overs, thanks to a strokeful knock of 77 by right-hander Arjit Gupta.Gupta, who hit seven fours and three sixes in 82 balls, was involved in a 87-run partnership with Ashok Menaria (35).Medium-pacer K Vignesh bowled well to start with and got opener Chetan Bist (4) in the second over.


He dismissed the other opener Manender Singh (7) and the key wicket of captain Mahipal Lomror (11, 27 balls) to reduce Rajasthan to 53 for 4.In another match, Gujarat beat Bengal by 38 runs. Half-centuries by Bishal Ghosh (62) and Milind Kumar (77) helped Tripura scratch their way to a two-wicket win over Jammu & Kashmir in a low-scoring encounter in Jaipur.


Only three batsmen managed to register double-digit scores in Tripura’s chase of 198. Umar Nazir Mir and Harmeet Singh bagged three wickets each. Rongsen Jonathan scored an unbeaten 104 against Manipur, in Dehradun before rain stopped play in the ninth over of Manipur’s chase, and the contest ended without a result.


Dwaraka Ravi Teja’s unbeaten 88-ball 109 powered Meghalaya to a massive 194-run win over Sikkim. Along with Amiangshu Sen (59), he stitched a 143-run stand and helped the side to 318 for 5. Aditya Sighania returned a 4-fer to bundle out Sikkim for 124.


Brief scores: Rajasthan 261/9 in 50 overs (A Gupta 77, A Menaria 35, R Chahar 48, K Vignesh 3/34) lost to Tamil Nadu 262/4 in 48 overs (A Mukund 75, B Aparajith 52, D Karthik 52*, M Shahrukh Khan 48*)
