While Anmolpreet slammed his second consecutive ton (138 off 106 balls), young Shubman scored 77.

Top five teams — Mumbai (28 points), Delhi (26 points), Maharashtra (26 points), Andhra (26 points) and Hyderabad (22 points) — made it to the quarter-finals which will be held at Bengaluru from October 14.
