Scorecard summary
East Zone269/8(50 overs)

Jubilation for Manoj and co., They have crawled back into the game from nowhere and West Zone have themselves to blame, lost wickets unnecessarily, needless shots and they have paid the price. Dinda was adjudged man of the match, that's all for now. Good night!
