Odisha 242 (Rout 94, Mishra 4-83) and 228 for 6 (Podder 79, Niranjan 64) drew with Haryana 626 for 4 dec (Dewan 273, Rana 157, Saini 102)

Haryana were ensured another season in the top tier of the Ranji Trophy after playing out a draw against Odisha in Bhubaneswar.

The visitors had already managed to all but avoid relegation on Thursday by securing a first-innings lead of 384, and with Jharkhand losing heavily to Punjab, the final day was a mere formality for both teams.

Odisha, who began at 33 for no loss, were buoyed by a 120-run partnership for the second wicket between Govind Podder and Niranjan Behera, who scored 79 and 64 respectively. Odisha lost quick wickets following Niranjan's dismissal in the 54th over, but the result of the game was never really in question.

Joginder Sharma and Jayant Yadav picked up two wickets each, as Odisha ended on 228 for 6 in 97 overs.
