Captain Sagun Kamat’s unbeaten hundred led Goa to a thrilling one-wicket win over Gujarat in the penultimate over, braving through the six wickets shared between Piyush Chawla and Kathan D Patel.

Haryana racked up 323 on board after choosing to bat, with Shubham Rohilla (74), Rajat Paliwal (76) and Jayant Yadav (58) offsetting Mrinmoy Dutta’s five-wicket haul. Harshal Patel then picked three wickets to impede the chase. Lack of partnerships and intent meant that Assam could only make 237 in the 50 overs, with Romario Sharma stranded on 97.
