North Zone 251 for 3 (Dhawan 101, Dewan 65) v West Zone
Fifteen boundaries in Dhawan's innings boosted his strike-rate to 56, the highest among all batsmen. His departure - he was stumped off offspinner Kamlesh Makwana - was followed by his partner Dewan's dismissal, also off the same bowler, seven overs later. A third-wicket stand of 76 between Sunny Singh and Nitin Saini looked to see them through to the close before Singh was caught behind in the 90th over, as the day ended.
Left-arm spinner Harmeet Singh, who was part of the India Under-19 squad that won the World Cup in Australia, was the most expensive of all the bowlers, with an economy rate of 4.16 in his 18 overs.
