The quarterfinal stage of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy finished, bringing two unpredictable results. The most astonishing was the defeat of Rajasthan, which was smashed by Vidarbha. Rajasthan 84/8 (20) – Vidarbha 87/1 (14.5). The favourites weren’t able to convert their experience and quality, losing to the undergod.
Another uncommon result came in the match between Gujarat and Hyderabad. The latter were considered as true outsiders but destroyed the favourites by 30 runs. Gujarat 128/8 (20) – Hyderabad 158/5 (20).

Although Karnataka was a favourite of the game against Bengal, there was a tie in the match. Twenty overs brought 160 runs for both teams, but in the Super Over, Karnataka proved their status. Bengal 160/8 (20) – Karnataka 160/5 (20). The most predictable game happened between Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Here the favourite successfully chased the underdog, even though it needed 19.3 overs for it. Tamil Nadu 187/5 (19.3) – Kerala 181/4 (20).
The semifinal pairs are Tamil Nadu – Hyderabad and Vidarbha – Karnataka. Both matches will be played on November 20. Want to know more about cricket and don’t miss the important news? Subscribe to cricket14.in and receive the latest updates to your email.
