Baroda lost to Kerala but reached final for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Haryana beat UP, while Delhi beat Rajasthan on the last day of the league phase. Here are the highlights of Day 5 of the ongoing Super League of the T20 tournament:

Group A

Goa vs Gujarat: Goa won their last game of the league against Gujarat by four wickets in Rajkot. The top three of the Gujarat line-up ensured their team got to a competitive total after electing to bat first. An 86-run opening stand helped lay a platform for the formidable score. No.3 bat SK Patel made 50 not-out, while openers PK Panchal and RD Darbar made 47 and 43 respectively. Chasing the target, Swapnil Asnodkar once again played a crucial knock for his team. The Goa captain made 64 while the rest of the line-up made useful contributions to help the team to victory with five overs to spare.

Haryana vs UPCA: UP posted a six-wicket win over Haryana to strengthen their position at the top the group table. Chasing 179 in Rajkot, UP opener PS Gupta powered his team to victory with a 102 not-out. Earlier, Ravi Dewan’s 46, at the top of the order, helped set the tone of the innings. Although the middle order returned without a substantial contribution, the lower-middle order batsmen, including R Dalal (24*) and S Rathi (10), took the team to 178 for eight.

Group B

Baroda vs Kerala: Although Baroda’s winning streak was halted by Kerala, the team from West Zone confirmed a berth in the final on the basis of their net run-rate. The team from South Zone beat Baroda by 22 runs in the Group B match of the T20 Super League for the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy in Mumbai in their quest to claim a berth in the final. After setting the opposition a 153-run target, thanks to a late blitzkrieg by Raiphi Gomez (42* off 19 balls), Kerala bowlers restricted Baroda to 130 for eight. Click here for the full report.
