AIU edge past South; Central win

 Despite conceding a narrow seven-run lead to South, AIU hit back strongly in the second innings, bowling their rivals -- overnight 167/9 -- out for 168 in 66.3 overs. Centurion KL Rahul (101) could add just one run to his overnight total before being dismissed as the last batsman.

Needing 176 for victory with almost a day’s play left, AIU went for the jugular and came out with flying colours, though South did threaten to spoil their party.

In another match at the RWF ground, ZCA Central registered a comprehensive 215-run win over President’s XI. Needing an improbable 293 for victory on the final day, President’s were eventually bowled out for 241 in 98.1 overs.
