Assam and Vidarbha qualify for the knock outs, who would have thought. Of course I am happy because KB Arun Karthik is Assam’s main batsman and S Badrinath is Vidarbha’s captain. Looking at the way Tamil Nadu capitulated, both of them were of course sorely missed. It is always lovely to see a lesser known team qualify, like Jammu and Kashmir at one point 🙂

Karnataka have been knocked out. Earlier in life, I would have jumped up and down gleefully and now I feel sad for this truly great team. How life turns as we age.
