Match Review: Riding high on centuries of both Ruturaj and Ankit, Maharashtra posed a formidable 350 in their allotted 50 overs. Assam fought with fervour till the last ball with Purakayastha (95) and Roy (78), but couldn’t match up to their opponents.
Semi Final 2 : Karnataka: 171 ( 49.1) vs Saurashtra : 172/5 ( 36.2 )

Match Result:- Saurastra win by 5 wickets
Match Review : It was a meek surrender for Karnataka as Saurashtra hardly put a foot wrong. Skipper Jaydev Unadkad ‘s fiery opening spell was “Too hot to handle” by the Karnataka batsmen as they fell like nine-pins and only managed to put up 171 on the board which seemed to be a cakewalk for Saurashtra in the end as they chased it down with 13 overs to spare.
