That's all she wrote, as Rajasthan put together a professional display here and edge Bihar out by 16 runs here and enter the semi-finals, as Bihar end their 20 overs with 148/4. Chandrapal Singh Chundawat bowled an economical spell of 1/21 off 4 overs, with Aniket Choudhary getting 1/25 off his 4 and Ravi Bishnoi getting 1/34 off his 4. For Bihar, Mangal Mahrour played a valiant hand of 68* (58) with Vikash Yadav chipping in with 27* (17). Rajasthan must be thanking Mahipal Lomror for his outstanding 78* (37), which essentially made the difference between the two sides. They will now face Tamil Nadu in the 1st Semi-Final on Friday, 29th January with Baroda taking on Punjab in the 2nd Semi-Final on the same day.

19.4 Aniket Choudhary to Vikash Yadav, yorker on the pads, Yadav squeezes that out towards long on and the batsmen return for the second. A good throw and it would have made matters interesting had that it
