That's it West Zone win by 274 runs and lift the Duleep Trophy for the 17th time. The players come out to shake hands with each other. Ramesh Powar picks up 10 wickets for the match. South Zone were never in the match after their poor performance in the first innings.

Badrinath: "We were outplayed in all three departments, we did not apply ourselves and did not bowl good lengths. 678 on any track is a bit too much, it was almost impossible."

Badrinath lifts the runners-up Trophy.

Wasim Jaffer: "Good season for me and the team, they had a great batting line up, but we bowled well on the 3rd morning, wicket was getting bad and the bowlers contributed."

Jaffer lifts the Duleep Trophy.
