Gujarat just about pushed a lacklustre Delhi out of the knockout race after grabbing three factors from their group A Ranji Trophy match, which led to a draw right here on Friday. On the premise of their 42-run first innings lead, Gujarat grabbed three factors from the competition to take their tally to 29 from seven outings. They now sit atop the cross pool (group A and B) standings.
The prime 5 groups within the cross pool will qualify for the quarterfinals. Top two from Group C and the most effective aspect within the Plate Group will full the road-up.
Delhi at the moment are left with a house recreation in opposition to Rajasthan, beginning right here from February 12, and so they need to get seven factors (together with bonus) to have any likelihood left.
But even a complete of 25 factors might not suffice as Gujarat (29), Andhra (27), Bengal (26), Saurashtra (25) and Karnataka (25) are already in prime 5 with a recreation left.
On ultimate day, Himmat Singh (70 off 76 balls) hit some lusty blows as Delhi declared at 333 for Eight leaving Gujarat with a goal of 292 in little over two classes.
The match was referred to as off at tea after Gujarat reached 128 for two because it was clear that no outright consequence was potential.
In Delhi: Delhi 293 and 333 for Eight declared (Himmat Singh 70). Gujarat 335 and 128/2 (Manprit Juneja 51 no).
