Hello all and welcome to the coverage of the final of NKP Salve Challenger trophy between India Red and India Green. News coming in is that India Red have won the toss and are bowling

Team News: Suman comes in for Mishra for India Green. India Red: Gambhir, RP and Jalaj Saxena aren't playing

Pitch report: The surface will hold for the length of the game. Spinners will have a tough time in general. However if they are willing to vary the pace, it might yield results

Shikar Dhawan: It is going well for us as we won two games chasing and we don't want to do anything different

Harbhajan: Any captain would have bowled first. We need to put runs on the board and try to defend whatever we get. I would want to see the middle order clicking and getting runs

For people asking why Gambhir isn't playing, the reason is that he is away on national duties and RP Singh isn't feeling well

6.1

Unadkat to Jaggi, OUT, wide outside the off stump. Jaggi goes for the drive and looks like he missed it. Unadkat goes for the appeal and the umpire is slow in raising his finger.

M Kaif    40* (63b 3x4)      YK Pathan    1-0-3-0

28.1

Pathan to Suman, OUT, that's smashed straight back at Pathan and he clings on to it. Suman was looking to get down the track and hit the bowlers down the ground. He connected well enough with this one but was a bit too close to the ball and couldn't get any elevation on it. Went straight at Yusuf's midriff and though it came quickly he would have been really disappointed if he had dropped that

TL Suman c & b Pathan 29 (47m 43b 2x4 1x6) SR: 67.44

Gautham is the new batsman. That catch stung Yusuf's left hand and the physio is out with the magic spray. Gautham's had a poor tournament so far, with scores of 19 and 17. Yusuf's got some plaster on his left hand

CM Gautam    1* (2b)      BA Bhatt    6-0-23-0

Pankaj Singh back into the attack

29.1

Pankaj Singh to Kaif, OUT, that's plumb. Just a hint of inswing and it traps Kaif dead in front of middle. The ball didn't really do that much but Kaif just seemed to play down the wrong line

M Kaif lbw b Pankaj Singh 41 (96m 67b 3x4 0x6) SR: 61.19

Harbhajan is the new man

29.2

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, short of a length and Harbhajan works it off his hip to deep square leg

29.3

Pankaj Singh to Gautam, 1 run, that was full on off stump and Gautham shuffled across and worked it to seep square leg. Risky move from Gautham considering a batsman's just been dismissed lbw

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, no run, Harbhajan takes a couple of casual steps down the wicket but then just defends it to mid-off

29.5

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, no run, outside off. Harbhajan pushes at it and it goes off the outer half of the bat to backward point

29.6

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, no run, casual footwork from Harbhajan and he tries to work it to the leg side from way outside off stump. Gets an inside-edge onto his pad

End of over 30 (2 runs) India Green 138/5
Harbhajan Singh    1* (4b)      Pankaj Singh    5-0-21-1
CM Gautam    2* (3b)      YK Pathan    2-0-5-1

31.6

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, again short of a length and Harbhajan nudges it to midwicket for a single

India Green's innings just hasn't quite taken off here. Everytime a partnership develops, a wicket falls and pegs back the scoring rate. The run-rate now is just 4.53 and they need to lift it to get to a competitive total

End of over 32 (4 runs) India Green 145/5
Harbhajan Singh    4* (7b)      Pankaj Singh    6-0-25-1
CM Gautam    6* (12b)      BA Bhatt    7-0-26-0

33.3

Sudhindra to Gautam, no run, slightly shorter and Gautham again leans onto that back foot and plays it straight back to the bowler

33.4

Sudhindra to Gautam, OUT, that's plumb. Beaten by the slowness of the ball. Gautham attempting to flick across the line but misses it completely. Not a smart shot from Gautham and Sudhindra is rewarded for bowling a stump-to-stump line

CM Gautam lbw b Sudhindra 6 (26m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Sumit Narwal walks out to bat.

33.5

Sudhindra to Narwal, no run, greeted with a yorker, but at a gentle pace and Narwal squeezes it to point

33.6

Sudhindra to Narwal, no run, slower one and Narwal had no idea where that ball was. Was lucky it hit the inside-edge rather than go between the gate.

End of over 34 (5 runs) India Green 151/6
S Narwal    0* (2b)      TP Sudhindra    7-0-29-2
Harbhajan Singh    10* (15b 1x4)      BA Bhatt    8-0-27-0

Harbhajan Singh    11* (16b 1x4)      TP Sudhindra    7-0-29-2

Just one boundary in the last eight overs. They really need to get a move on now. These two are capable of big hits. Sudhindra goes around the wicket

39.5

Bhatt to Narwal, no run, full and on the sumps. Narwal defends

Bhatt to Narwal, 1 run, this one was almost a yorker and Narwal needs to get deep in his crease to punch it to long-on

S Narwal c Rayudu b Chawla 18 (28m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Iqbal Abdulla is the new man

40.4

Chawla to Iqbal Abdulla, 1 run, that's a short legspinner and Abdulla has time to rock back and cut it to deep cover

40.6

Sudhindra into the attack

42.1

Sudhindra to Harbhajan Singh, 1 leg bye, Harbhajan comes down the wicket and completely misses it. Goes off the pad to cover. Sudhindra meanwhile has gone sprawling to the flloor but he still manages an appeal. The ball was pretty straight and may even have been hitting the stumps but the umpire is never going to give it with the batsman that far down the wicket.

Apparently Sudhindra has just twisted his ankle in his delivery stride. Sudhindra's going off the field in fact. May have damaged a hamstring. Familiar story for an Indian seamer

Yusuf will complete the over for Sudhindra

42.2

Pathan to Iqbal Abdulla, 1 run, short and Abdulla punches off the back foot to long-off

42.3

Pathan to Harbhajan Singh, no run, good length and that turned quited sharply. Surprised Harbhajan who just flicks it to midwicket

44.6

Unadkat to Harbhajan Singh, no run, slower on outside off stump. Harbhajan's push finds the cover-point fielder

End of over 45 (5 runs) India Green 201/7
Harbhajan Singh    34* (45b 3x4)      JD Unadkat    7-1-42-2
Iqbal Abdulla    7* (11b)      Pankaj Singh    7-0-30-1

Pankaj Singh to Iqbal Abdulla, no run, short of a lenght. Abdulla can only defend of the back foot

That's the first boundary for 52 balls

Unadkat to Iqbal Abdulla, no run, full toss but he's missed it. That was at a nice high too and wide of off stump but Abdulla finds only air with his swing

46.3

Unadkat to Iqbal Abdulla, 2 runs, tight second run and Unadkat can't gather, Harbhajan would have been run out by some yards there. Abdulla had flicked to the leg side and Unadkat got in a horrible position to receive the throw from deep midwicket. Let off for Harbhajan

46.4

Unadkat to Iqbal Abdulla, 1 run, On leg stump and flicked to the leg side

46.5

Unadkat to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, Driven hard but again can't find the placement. Straight to long-off

47.1

Pankaj Singh to Iqbal Abdulla, OUT, that's given. Full ball outside off and Abdulla has a swing at it. Definite noise as the ball goes through to Saha behind the stumps but might have been bat hitting ground

Iqbal Abdulla c †Saha b Pankaj Singh 18 (30m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

47.2

Pankaj Singh to Mithun, 1 run, Slower one and Mithun hits it uppishly to long-on

Pankaj Singh to Mithun, 1 run, Pushed to the off side after he had chipped down the track

47.5

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, 2 runs, smashed straight back down but long-off gets around. Harbhajan timed that nicely but the ball seemed to hold up in the outfield

47.6

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, slower one. And Mithun pats it down. The batsmen steal a single but Pankaj has listlessly backhanded the ball to the non-striker's end and conceded an overthrow. Sloppy!

End of over 48 (6 runs) India Green 219/8
Harbhajan Singh    40* (50b 3x4)      Pankaj Singh    9-0-39-2
A Mithun    2* (2b)      JD Unadkat    8-1-51-2

Unadkat switches to over the wicket

48.3

Unadkat to Mithun, no run, better line and Mithun misses with a swipe. Was looking at that same area in the off side but didn't have the room

48.4

48.5

Unadkat to Mithun, 1 run, waits for the slower one and hits it hard but it goes to long-on. A tennis forehand from Mithun there

48.6

Unadkat to Harbhajan Singh, SIX, that's the one Harbhajan's been waiting for. Length ball, in the slot, at a decent pace and he deposits it in the stands beyond the midwicket boundary

End of over 49 (14 runs) India Green 233/8
Harbhajan Singh    47* (52b 3x4 1x6)      JD Unadkat    9-1-65-2
A Mithun    9* (6b 1x4)      Pankaj Singh    9-0-39-2

49.1

Pankaj Singh to Mithun, 1 run, a single gets Harbhajan on strike

49.2

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, yorker wide of off stump. Harbhajan can only squeeze it down to third man

49.3

Pankaj Singh to Mithun, 1 run, full toss but Mithun looks a little surprised by it and can only slap it to long-off for one

Harbhajan on 48 now

49.4

Pankaj Singh to Harbhajan Singh, 1 run, Slower one miles outside off but Harbhajan reaches for it and just pats it to backward point. That may have been a wide if he'd left it

49.5

Pankaj Singh to Mithun, no run, good yorker from Pankaj. Mithun has a wild swing and misses. Harbhajan too tired at this point to try to sneak a bye

49.6

Pankaj Singh to Mithun, 1 run, slower short ball and Mithun has bottom-edged a forehand into the ground

The India Green innings comes to an end but it never really got started. Harbhajan had to be sensible rather than belligerent at the end but his 49 not out may be vital come the end of the game. The wicket looked a little slow and there was some tight bowling from India Red but India Green will rue the number of dot balls they faced. Stay tuned for the chase. India Red, with Abhinav Mukund in prime form, will be chasing 239. Harbhajan is looking to lift his second trophy in the space of a few days.

End of over 50 (5 runs) India Green 238/8
A Mithun    12* (10b 1x4)      Pankaj Singh    10-0-44-2
Harbhajan Singh    49* (54b 3x4 1x6)      JD Unadkat    9-1-65-2
