In another match, Services notched up its second straight win, humbling Bengal by eight wickets.

In the third match of the day, Gujarat outplayed Rajasthan by eight wickets, with spinner Hardik Patel's five wicket haul and Priyank Panchal knock of 84 coming to the fore.

In the Tamil Nadu-Jharkhand match, the latter chose to bat after skipper Ishan Kishan won the toss.

The talented Southpaw continued his hot form from Monday and gave the team a rollicking start.

Kishan made 85 off 87 balls (8x4, 3x6) and added 83 for the opening wicket with Anand Singh (52) and 104 with Virat Singh (48).

The experienced Saurabh Tiwary weighed in with a half century to power Jharkhand past the 300 mark.

Chasing 308 for a win, Tamil Nadu didn't have the best of starts as the aggressive N Jagadeesan was dismissed early.

Abhinav Mukund carved out a classy 63, but the loss of wickets pegged the hosts back.

Skipper Indrajith led a wonderful rearguard and kept Tamil Nadu in the hunt with his scintillating strokemaking, but could not carry the team over the line.

A minute's silence was observed before the start of the Bengal Vs Services match as a mark of respect to former BCCI president Biswanath Dutt, who passed away in Kolkota on Monday.
