| | Port Elizabeth

Skipper G Hanuma Vihari (169) and K S Bharat (105) starred in Andhra's 29-run win over Mumbai on Wednesday, its sixth straight win in the Vijay Hazare Trophy Group 'C' League.

The victory enabled Andhra finish on top of the standings with 24 points and qualify for the national knockout phase, along with Mumbai, which finished second with 16 points.

The massive 254-run partnership in 204 balls between Bharat and Vihari helped Andhra post a mammoth 344 for 5 in 50 overs before restricting the opponent to 315 for 9 despite Siddhesh Lad's strokeful ton.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu ended its losing streak by posting a comfortable seven-wicket win over Team Rajasthan with left-arm spinner R Sai Kishore stealing the show with a five-wicket haul.

In the other match of the day, wicketkeeper Keenan Vaz snared seven victims to equal the record in List A matches as Goa edged Gujarat by one wicket in a thriller.

hyderabad: Saurashtra trounced Ranji Trophy champions Vidarbha by eight wickets for a hat-trick of wins, helping them seal a quarterfinal berth in the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Wednesday.

Hosts Hyderbad rode on pacer Mohammed Siraj's 5/37 to hammer Chhattisgarh by 84 runs and join Saurashtra in the last eight as Group D toppers.

Saurashtra edged out Vidarbha on a better net run-rate for the second spot as it was heartbreak for the reigning Ranji champions who were leading the group.
