In another match, Azim Kazi’s knock of 106 (97 balls, 7 fours, 4 sixes) enabled Maharashtra to notch a three-wicket win over Bengal. In the Pondicherry-Services match, the former won the toss and chose to field. Ravi Chauhan, who scored a ton in the upset win over Mumbai on Sunday, continued the good form with a superb 105 (117 balls, 9 fours, 1 six).

Rahul Singh contributed 81 and skipper Rajat Paliwal made 38 as Services posted a score of 302 for 6 in 50 overs.
Pondicherry lost captain and opening batter R Ragupathy (1) in the second over when Sachidanand Pandey (3 for 55) had him leg-before wicket. Jay Pandey (18), the other opener, and Karthick (78) added 35 runs before the former fell to Pandey.

This brought Karthick and Dogra, who hit 8 fours, 6 sixes, together for the third wicket and the two added 114 runs in about 20 overs to hand Pondicherry the advantage. Despite losing Karthick and G Chiranjeevi (2), Dogra kept going and found an able partner in Sharma (54) to power the team ahead.

The 103-run stand between Dogra and Sharma for the fifth wicket took Pondicherry closer to the target. However, Sharma was dismissed at 272 and the experienced Dogra took the team home in the company of Marimuthu Vikneshwaran (13 not out).
