Sanjay Ramaswamy was out caught at second slip off Navdeep Saini, after which Ganesh Satish was caught behind off Sumit Narwal. Faiz Fazal, who hit the first of the two fours of the day, fell leg before wicket to Vikas Tokas.

"The result's disappointing. We could have pushed for a win had it not been for the rain. It's unfortunate that Manan Sharma couldn't score a century. But, Gambhir made the right call to declare. Team comes first," said Delhi coach Bhaskar Pillai.
