Rain plays spoilsport at Agartala

The Cooch Behar Under-19 Trophy tournament match between Tripura and Bihar at the PIG ground in Agartala was declared a draw after uninterrupted rain forced the suspension of play at 9.15 am on the third and final day on Sunday.

In all, only three overs were possible in the match on the opening day on Friday before the rain gods took over to wash away any hope of play for the rest of the match. Electing to bat, Bihar scored only five runs without loss in the three overs. Both teams got three points each.
