India Blue wins the 2013/14 NKP Salve Challenger Trophy. They clinch the title by 50 runs, Vinay Kumar, Piyush Chawla and Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled well and early wickets set the tempo for them. Earlier in the morning Manish Pandey and Chawla helped them to get a challenging total. For Delhi, Milind Kumar and Bisht tried their best and also not to forget Nehra. The big guns in the names of Gambhir, Chand and Sehwag falls early, Kohli got a start but can't carried it on.
