Haryana vs Goa:
Looks like the track in Ghaziabad is a belter! Haryana easily blaze past Goa’s first innings total of 413 to guarantee three points with this being the final day. Nitin Saini, who scored a double ton yesterday is still batting on 219.
Hyderabad vs Chhattisgarh:
Hyderabad managed to add only seven runs in the morning to fold for 122 which sets Chhattisgarh a target of 286. Having conceded the first innings lead, the onus is on them to force a win.
Gujarat vs Mumbai:
What a start for Gujarat! Shreyas Iyer is not getting his double century. Kalaria gets his first wicket as he manages to get rid of Iyer for 194. At 333 for 7, they need something special from the tailenders to guide them past Gujarat’s total.
Kerala vs Andhra: Kerala declare
Andhra have been set a target of 296 to win this contest. Will they go for it? They will have three points in the bag even if they settle for a draw so their approach will be interesting to see now. Sachin Baby’s unbeaten 55-ball 60 helped Kerala get the quick runs that they need in order to push for a win.
We are all set for the final day’s play of the seventh round in the 2016-17 Ranji Trophy. Plenty to look forward to as certain teams are aiming for an outright win and the rest aiming for a point at least. After the mayhem in Lahli, we are yet to witness another result in this round. Shreyas Iyer rescued Mumbai from a precarious situation with an unbeaten 191 and Mumbai will need him yet again in order to go past Gujarat, whose skipper Parthiv Patel earned a recall to the Test squad yesterday.
Kaushik Gandhi stroked a wonderful century to help Tamil Nadu fetch a crucial first innings lead against Punjab. Even though a draw looks likely, a couple of early wickets in the morning can put extreme pressure on Punjab. Elsewhere, Karnataka staged a spirited fightback against Odisha but it may still not be enough unless they add some crucial runs in the morning today.
Maharashtra are already on the brink of securing a win. They need just four more wickets after asking Assam to bat again. The Delhi-Rajasthan match is nicely poised with Delhi needing 102 runs to win with seven wickets in hand. Welcome to our live blog for the final day’s play.
