This the highest successful run chase in first-class cricket and West Zone has done it in style, well done. West Zone win by 3 wickets and lift the Duleep Trophy for the 16th time. Yusuf is being hugged and lifted by his brother Irfan, a fantastic effort and a great win. Feel for Karthik, who will be dejected and disappointed to end up losing the game, after his wonderful knocks in both the innings. The fielding was terrible, drops all around and that was the case for South. A Final worth remembering for West Zone and the fans, but this match will linger in the minds of South Zone for all the wrong reasons.
Tanveer: "Hats off to Yusuf pathan!!!!!!! what an inning he has played, I think this is his best inning so far. "
Vrijlesh: "Duleepsinhji would have been proud of this effort! Kudos to the West Zone."
Satvir Singh: "Final words: Long live YK, DK and the longest format of the game."
Anish: "This match shows nothing is impossible in cricket"
Karthik: "It has been very tough, we worked hard for 4 days and it did not go well on the 5th day, we did not take the catches."
Jaffer: "I was really positive, the openers played well and Yusuf batted extremely well. The Finals are getting too close for comfort but I am enjoying it."
Thanks for joining us, it has been a pleasure going through all the emails, a fantastic finish. Do join us again for more domestic cricket, until then this is Binoy George your scorer and commentator signing off.
Aravind to bowl some left arm spinners.
That boundary brings up the 50 runs partnership.
An amazing knock from Pathan.
Krishna: "I was not very serious about the saying "Little drops make the mighty ocean" until I saw this match today where little "drops" have made up this mighty ocean of 500+. The context of the drops is different though ;)"
Suresh: "Just feel that SOUTH ZONE will come victorious as something tells me that they have a chance with the spinners and Ganapathy bowling his heart out.Come on Fielders hold everything from here on."
Absolem is back.
23 runs required.
