Greater Noida, Sep 1: India Red entered the final of the Duleep Trophy after the rain-affected game against India Blue ended in a draw with entire 4th day's play on Thursday (September 1) being washed out due to inclement weather and wet outfield.

Rain stops play on Day 3

With only 78.2 overs of play possible through out the entire 4 days, both teams got a point each and Yuvraj Singh's 'Red' team with 7 points from 2 games ensured that they are through for the summit clash.

The next game between 'Blue' and 'Green' team starting September 4 will decide on the other finalist.

Whoever gets atleast the first innings lead is through but in case there is another wash-out and points are split, the Blue team will then go through with two points as the 'Green' team can then only log home a solitary point.


Brief Scores: India Blue 285/5 in 78.2 overs (Mayank Agarwal 92, Gautam Gambhir 77, Kuldeep Yadav 4/78) drew with India Red.
