It was a good comeback game for Unmukt, who was dumped from the squad initially only to be brought back after Delhi's campaign ended.

He wasn't exactly fluent but batted responsibly enough as he played 85 balls hitting five boundaries and a six in the process.

Skipper Rishabh Pant hit 35 off 26 balls with two fours and three huge sixes. Milind Kumar hit 40 off 37 balls with six boundaries and a six.

It was Manan Sharma, who ended the match with a huge six off Vinod Kumar's bowling. Earlier, another comeback man Pawan Suyal, replacement for an out of form Pawan Negi grabbed two for 46 while Navdeep Saini took 2 for 49.
