BENGALURU: India Red continued their domination in the Duleep Trophy final as they took a commanding lead of 114 runs against India Green here on Friday. At stumps on day three, Reds were 345 for six with Aditya Sarwate and Jaydev Undakat at the crease with 30 and 10 respectively.
Green bowlers had to toil hard on a rain-truncated day as Red added 170 runs to their overnight total. The third session witnessed only four overs of action as umpires had to call of the day due to bad light.
Aditya and Ishan Kishan put on 61 runs for the sixth wicket. Ishan looked watchful from the start. He got a reprieve from Akshdeep Nath, stationed at second slip. Ishan was dropped when he was on 16. Ishan’s strokeplay led to his own downfall as he edged pacer Ankit Rajpoot to the wicket-keeper after scripting a 59-ball 36.
