North Zone win by 49 runs and lift the Deodhar Trophy. The North Zone team is jubilant, hugs and handshakes all around. Kohli is very happy and he shakes hands with his team mates and the umpires. The West Zone players now come out to shake hands. Mukesh Sharma the pick of the bowlers with a five-wicket haul, wonderful stuff. It was a wonderful display of batting from Yusuf, hitting to all parts of the Moti Bagh stadium, fireworks, but then it was not enough, he had to stay till the end. He fell and the tail did not wag.

Here is the list of Deodhar Trophy winners.

Gaurav: "what a poor finish to such an exciting match? Expected a tight finish... congrats North Zone."

Parthiv: The batting condition was much better in the first innings. The wicket was turning later on and it was Phenomenal batting by Yusuf."

Kohli: "I knew we had to put up a big total, we did well in the end. Bringing in an extra spinner worked for us. They started well but we pulled it back and then Yusuf hitting the big sixes, we were hoping for a mistake from Yusuf."

Kohli lifts the Deodhar Trophy and his teammates join him for a photo session.
