After posting a massive total of 672 runs on the boar, Chandigarh‘s bowling force wreaked havoc on Manipur by decimating their side at a meagre total of 63 runs in the first innings. After Chandigarh enforced the follow on, Manipur amassed 33 runs on the board without the loss of any wicket at stumps on Day 2.

In the encounter between Delhi and Rajasthan, the former’s batting unit exhibited strong batting performance after their three players– Hiten Dalal, Kshitiz Sharma and Kunwar Bidhuri smashed centuries. In reply, Rajasthan’s batting force had no answers to Delhi’s brilliant display as they lost their four wickets at 92 runs at the stumps.

After gathering 490 runs on the board in their first innings, Goa were successful in curbing Mizoram to the totals of 109 and 170 in their first and second innings respectively. Smit Patel garnered all the attention in the match by smashing a double ton to propel Goa to a mammoth total. However, the Man of the Match was awarded to the Goa skipper– Amit Verma for his all-round performance.

Puducherry also exhibited a brilliant batting performance against Nagaland as they posted 517 runs on the board at the stumps. Arun Karthik (98) and Paras Dogra (125) emerged as the top performers for Puducherry along with Sagar Udeshi (79) and Fabid Ahmed (70).
