Match Notes

  • South ease into semi-finals after draw

    Legspinner M Suresh took six Central Zone wickets during an extended spell to seal South Zone's berth in the semi-finals of the Duleep Trophy. Central were faced with the ardous task of scoring 381 in 77 overs and the aggressive approach of their batsmen

  • Dravid and Karthik tons build South's lead

    Having gained a narrow first-innings lead early in the day, South Zone consolidated in their second to finish the penultimate day with a semi-final spot all but assured

  • Dravid returns to reliable ways

    Rahul Dravid played the sort of knock that made him the world's most bankable batsman a few years ago, displaying the confidence, ease and solidity that were once second nature to him

  • Match tantalisingly poised as South fight back

    Piyush Chawla and Murali Kartik had a horror day with the ball on Thursday, but their streaky, quickfire 57-run eighth-wicket stand put Central within touching distance of the all-important first-innings lead after the second day against South Zone in Ban

  • Both sides of Sreesanth

    Sreesanth's first bowling stint in the spotlight since last year's IPL was a typically entertaining mix of the sublime and the surreal
