Group A

Delhi fightback

After openers Unmukt Chand and Gautam Gambhir departed cheaply, Delhi were reduced to 34 for 3 in 7.2 overs at Karnail Singh Stadium. However, the Railways’ charge was halted by Nitish Rana and Himmat Singh, who stitched together a rescue act. Rana and Himmat took Delhi to 120 for 3 at lunch. Before being caught by Mahesh Rawat off the bowling of Avinash Yadav, Himmat Singh smashed eight boundaries and one six to break the shackles. Rana took control along with wicket-keeper Anuj Rawat and when Rana departed, 11 short of a well deserved century, Delhi still had more than 31 overs to survive. Rawat and Manan Sharma added 111 runs for the sixth wicket to steer Delhi to a respectable total.
