finished second on 16 points from five matches (four wins and a loss) and net run-rate of +0.435) followed by Andhra (16 points, NRR: +0.109).

Sent in to bat by Ambati Rayudu, Tamil Nadu rode on quick-fire knocks by (40, 16 balls, 2X4, 4X6) and R (28 balls, 2X4, 3X6) in the middle of the innings to put up 193 for 7 in 20 overs.

In response, Andhra looked in control when Rayudu (53, 34 balls, 1X4, 4X6) and Tanmay Agarwal (59, 39 balls, 5X4, 2X6) were at the crease. The former, in particular, was severe on the leggie M Ashwin and smote him for two big sixers in one over.
