Green's response to 303 is probably described as a meek surrender. Besides Tiwary, who top scored with 65, the rest failed to make a fist of the target, or at least deny Reds a bonus point.

Reds are through to the final after bagging a bonus point today and this means that India Green will have to win by a thumping margin tomorrow (against India Blue) if they are to qualify.

We hope you enjoyed the coverage today. Do join us again tomorrow for the final league match, between India Blue and India Green (starts 9.00 GMT) . Till then, it's cheers!

Kumar to MM Patel, OUT, that's five for the road for Praveen Kumar! Munaf gets a little too adventurous and shuffles across his stumps, aiming to flick it down leg. He fails to get bat on ball and is struck on the pads in line with leg stump

Kumar to Pankaj Singh, OUT, timber! Kumar bowls length and keeps it on the stumps. Singh gives room for another heave but was too early on the stroke. A swing and a miss follows and the leg stumps goes back a few yards
