Two matches of the Vizay Hazare Trophy zonal rounds were tied on Friday, one of them a 20-over affair played between Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. In the South Zone leg between Karnataka and Hyderabad, the scores were tied at 248 after both sides played out their full quota of 50 overs. Captain R Vinay Kumar had a good outing with both the bat and the ball in the tied game. 

Put into bat, Karnataka recovered from an early wobble to post 248 for eight with captain R Vinay Kumar top-scoring with an unbeaten 47. Hyderabad seemed to be on course in their run chase as they were 142 for two in the 31st over but suffered a batting collapse, triggered by Vinay Kumar (5/42), to be reduced to 165 for six in the 38th over. Hyderabad needed 31 runs from the last three overs with three wickets in hand and they almost pulled it off. Ashish Reddy (51 not out) kept Hyderabad in the hunt but finally fell short of the target of 249 by one run.

In Jaipur, thanks to cameos from their top-three, including 24 off 21 from Suresh Raina, Uttar Pradesh finished at 137 for nine from 20 overs, the same score as Madhya Pradesh in the Central Zone game.

At Alur in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu beat Andhra Pradesh by eight wickets in a low scoring match while Kerala defeated Goa by three wickets. Tamil Nadu pacer Yo Mahesh returned with figures of 5/31 as Andhra were shot out for just 126 in 41.3 overs. Tamil Nadu easily chased down the target of 127 in just 30.1 overs on the back of 84-run opening wicket stand between wicket-keeper batsman Umashankar Sushil (61 not out) and Murali Vijay (50).
