    The covers are coming off. Although the pitch is still covered but the side covers are being removed.

    The main cover is now being taking away.

    Super sopper at work. Ground is being cleared. Shouldn’t take a long time for play to resume.

    West Zone 118/5 in 37 overs

    Sarfaraz Khan goes for a duck. Kaverappa gets his third wicket as he traps Sarfaraz in front and the umpire immediately raised the finger. Despite a review by the batter, it showed three reds and Sarfaraz had to walk back.

    And that will be Tea on day 2.

  • July 13, 2023 15:01
    West Zone 108/3 in 34 overs

    Suryakumar Yadav smashes a SIX on the very first ball he faces. A short ball and Surya pulls it in his trademark style. The ball went just above the ropes even though the fielder at square leg was interested and even got a hand to it.

    He tries to pull the next ball as well and gets a top edge but the ball lands safely.

  • July 13, 2023 14:52
    West Zone 101/3 in 32 overs

    Prithvi Shaw OUT! The short ball tactic against Shaw has worked for South. Ever since the break, both Vyshak and Kaverappa tested him with short balls. This time Shaw tried to upper cut it only to give a simple catch to the deep-third. Shaw goes for 65, Vyshak gets his first wicket.

    His wicket brings Suryakumar Yadav to the crease.

  • July 13, 2023 14:47
    West Zone 97/2 in 31 overs

    Kaverappa gets Harvik. A breakthrough for South as Harvik chases a wide ball and ends up edging it to the keeper. A 70-run stand for the second wicket comes to an end.

    Cheteshwar Pujara joins Prithvi Shaw at the crease.

  • July 13, 2023 14:43
    West Zone 96/1 in 30 overs

    A huge appeal for a catch at short-leg. Vyshak with a short delivery which was just above waist height. Harvik tries to play it towards fine leg but misses it and the ball jumps and short-leg catches it. Umpire Anil Choudhary declines and South takes the DRS. No edge and the umpire’s decision stays. Review lost.

  • July 13, 2023 14:37
    West Zone 93/1 in 29 overs

    The players are back in the middle. Prithvi Shaw and Harvik Desai were looking before the rain stopped play.

    West Zone 92/1 in 28 overs

    Shaw has hit some solid cover drives but unfortunately hasn’t been able to find the gap. The Shaw-Harvik pair has added 65 runs for the second wicket so far.

    Umpires have taken out the light meter. Seems like all good to continue.

  • July 13, 2023 13:20
    West Zone 91/1 in 27 overs

    Kaverappa bowling too wide and Harvik latches on to one and smashes it towards the cover region. It was in the air for a while, keeping the fielder at covers interested but it was too high to catch despite a full-stretch by Sai Kishore. Four.

    A runout chance on the last ball but the throw was too weak by the fielder at mid-on. It was a straight drive by Harvik and didn’t had enough power.

  • July 13, 2023 13:10
    West Zone 79/1 in 25 overs

    Fifty for Prithvi Shaw! A solid innings. His 16th First-Class half-century and it has come in just 73 balls including seven fours.

  • July 13, 2023 12:57
    West Zone 71/1 in 22 overs

    V Vyshak bowls in this match for the first time. Just two runs from that over. Shaw hit a well-timed drive only to be stopped at the covers.

    West Zone 68/1 in 20 overs - Lunch

    Two boundaries in that Kaverappa over just before Lunch. Shaw and Harvik have looked solid although South has cut down the scoring rate in the last 30 minutes.

  • July 13, 2023 12:01
    West Zone 60/1 in 19 overs

    Shaw brakes the shackles with a cut off Koushik that went in the gap and runs away towards the point region. Koushik follows it with a super delivery that completely beats Shaw who tried to defend it on the front foot but the ball just nips away.

  • July 13, 2023 11:52
    West Zone 55/1 in 17 overs

    West Zone 4/0

    Prithvi Shaw and Priyank Panchal take the crease for West.

  • July 13, 2023 10:27
    South Zone 213 all out

    Bengaluru Weather Forecast

    Chances of rain again very high at 80% in Bengaluru. Thankfully, the worst of the rain is expected only after 4pm which means we could have a majority overs completed in the day.

    South Zone vs West Zone - Day 2 report

    Duleep Trophy 2023 final: Vihari scores fifty but West Zone wrests control on rain-hit Day 1

  • July 13, 2023 08:28
    Day 2 beckons!

    A very good morning to all our readers. The second day of play in the Duleep Trophy final is just about an hour away.

    Day 1 turned out to be a tale of two halves. South Zone, despite the fall of two early wickets, was in control at Lunch. Hanuma Vihari and Tilak Varma were at crease and had put the innings back on track. In the second session, though, West Zone clawed back courtesy its pace battery. Vihari got past 50 but his resistance was ended by Shams Mulani. None of the other middle order batters threatened really. Washington Sundar and Vyshak Vijaykumar were at crease when rain forced a stop in proceedings in the third session.

    Day 2, for South, should start with Sundar farming the strike and trying to get as many runs as possible. Some support from the tail and the team total, currently 182 for seven, could stretch to 250.
