Delhi settle for 3 pts after washout

Delhi had to settle for three points and a draw against Haryana after not a single ball was bowled on the fourth and final day of the Ranji Trophy Group B match as dense fog engulfed the Bansi Lal Cricket Stadium here on Thursday. Delhi were to begin the day at 134 for five with a 224-run lead already in the bag. While only 38 overs were bowled on Wednesday, no play was possible on Thursday.

The visitors would have fancied their chances of a win after bowling out Haryana for 188 on a lively Lahli wicket. Despite the draw, Delhi remain on top of the group standings with 23 points courtesy three wins from four games. Haryana, with a solitary point from their home game, have 10 points from four matches. Besides weather, the game will also be remembered for Virender Sehwag’s second consecutive century of the season. His 147 off 181 balls came after a 105 against Gujarat at home.

BriefScores Delhi: 278 & 134/5 in 41 overs (Gautam Gambhir 46, Shivam Sharma 25; Joginder Sharma 3/18, Kuldeep Hooda 2/22). Haryana: 188 all out.
