Dinesh Mongia and Yuvraj Singh carried out the final rituals as North Zone registered a comprehensive seven-wicket win over South Zone in the Duleep Trophy league match at Indore. North Zone thus secured a final berth, and will face Central Zone on March 8 at Nagpur. Resuming on 4 for 0, North succeeded in chasing the target of 140 within just 23 overs. Yuvraj continued his scintillating form with a 38-ball 60, smashing seven fours and four sixes. He was well supported by Dinesh Mongia, who contributed a steady 52 in 60 balls.

North faced a slight hiccup when they lost the top-three batsmen for 46. Then, Yuvraj and Mongia got together to smash a 100 runs and take North past the victory target. The North Zone batsmen were particularly severe on MR Shrinivas, who conceded 61 in 3.5 overs.
