In the first quarter-final match, between Bihar and Mumbai, Bihar were bowled out for 69 runs, with Mumbai going on to win by nine wickets.[15] In the second match, Delhi beat Haryana by five wickets,[16] with Delhi's Gautam Gambhir scoring his 10,000th run in List A cricket.[17] In the third fixture, Jharkhand beat Maharashtra by two wickets in a rain-affected match.[18] In the fourth and final quarter-final match, Hyderabad beat Andhra by 14 runs to progress.[19]
