Result: Tamil Nadu beats Odisha by 8 wickets, registers third consecutive win.

Points: Tamil Nadu 4 | Odisha 0

What a fine win by Tamil Nadu as the Dinesh Karthik-led side registers third consecutive win and remains on top of Elite Group B with 12 points from three matches. Odisha was never in the game after posting just 132 and in reply, N Jagadeesan scored his second consecutive half-century to hand his side an easy win. Odisha staring at an early exit.

Tamil Nadu 104/1 after 12 overs: The 100 is up for Tamil Nadu and the shoulders have strated dropping in the Odisha camp as the body language suggests they have almost given up. Arun Karthik smacks Ankitkar Jaiswal for a maximum right over the sightscreen as Tamil Nadu is en route to register its third win on the trot.

Tamil Nadu 83/1 after 10 overs: Back to back half-centuries for N Jagadeesan and his knock has put Tamil Nadu on top of this run chase. Papu Roy made a breakthrough by dismissing Hari Nishaanth but Jagadeesan with four boundaries and three sixes has kept Odisha at bay. He is joined by K.B. Arun Karthik with Tamil Nadu requiring 44 runs to win. 

Tamil Nadu 48/0 after 5 overs: The openers have so far hit eight fours and two sixes. It’s been a rapid start to the chase.

Tamil Nadu 11/0 after 2 overs: N Jagadeesan and Hari Nishaanth are off the mark as Tamil Nadu chases 131 to remain on top of the table and record its third consecutive win. Odisha needs early wickets to make a comeback into the match after positing a mere 130.

End of Innings: Odisha 132/9 after 20 Overs: Top stuff from Tamil Nadu and they will be a happy lot as they require just 131 runs to register their third win on the trot. Odisha got a good start but the rest faltered and the side lost wickets at regular intervals. It was a good bowling show with Murugan Ashwin, being the pick of the bowlers with three wickets and Ashwin Crist and M Mohammed sharing four wickets among themselves. It should be an easy chase for Tamil Nadu.

Odisha 124/6 after 18 overs: Suryakant Pandhan has hit some lusty blows with tow huge sixes to give Odisha some vital runs. With two more overs, Odisha will aim to get to at least 140 and give their bowlers something to bowl at.

Odisha 93/5 after 15 overs: The experienced Tamil Nadu bowlers have tied down the Odisha batsmen and there is absolutely no momentum what so ever. The spin of Murugan Ashwin has left the batsmen clueless and skipper Dinesh Karthik as been exceptional in rotating his bowlers.

Odisha 83/5 after 13 overs: Odisha continue to slip as skipper Biplab Samantray falls follows Rajesh Dhuper and not a single batsman is willing to spend some time at the crease. The ball is coming nicely on to the bat but Odisha’s top-order has been guilty of playing poor shots and lacked application. Tamil Nadu bossing the game.

Odisha 66/2 after 10 overs: Halfway stage and Odisha just going above six and they need to go at 10 per over to get to at least 166 as anything less than that will not pose much a challenge to Tamil Nadu who are unbeaten so far in the tournament. 

Odisha 53/2 after 8 overs: The fifty comes for Odisha and they are going at 6.62 runs per over and after the fall of Gaurav Choudhary, Odisha has lacked momentum and they need some good overs to compensate for the loss of two wickets. Spinners Murugan Ashwin and Sai Kishore have applied brakes on the batting and the boundaries have dried up.

Odisha 43/2 after 5 overs: Tamil Nadu strikes as spinner Sai Kishore and fast bowler Ashwi Crist strike to remove Gaurav and former skipper Govind Poddar. Odisha if off to a good start after winning the toss but it lost opener Gaurav who went on attack. Subhranshu Senapati is the new man in and he joins Dhuper. There isn’t much turn nor swing on offer and Odisha needs to bat sensibly to post a challenging total against a strong Tamil Nadu side.

Odisha 30/0 after 3 overs: Gaurav has been severe on Tamil Nadu bowlers and especially on Ashwin Christ as he smacked the fast bowler for 18 runs in the second over to give Odisha a brilliant start. Dhuper, meanwhile has been playing the role of second fiddle and allowing his partner to go on the attack. Tamil Nadu needs a breakthrough.

Odisha 1/0 after 1 over: Sandeep Warrier begins proceedings for Tamil Nadu in a fine fashion as Gaurav Choudhary and Rajesh Dhuper open the batting for Odisha. Tamil Nadu almost had their first wicket as a direct hit from mid-on could have packed off Gaurav. Dhuper is yet to open his account in what is a must-win tie for Odisha.

At the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, Odisha won the toss and opted to bat first against Tamil Nadu

The seasoned campaigner – who has been in the circuit for the last six years – surpassed Rohan Prem’s previous top-score of 92 not out and ensured that Kerala remained undefeated in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

A wicketkeeper-batsman, Azharuddeen made it to Kerala’s first-class side in 2015 and has been quite a consistent performer since.
