A five-for but no high-fives for Narwal

Next to go was Jayant Yadav. Early on Day Four, Narwal knew he had to make the most of the conditions to ensure Haryana, whose lead was 250 at that point, did not get further ahead in the game. Narwal struck Yadav on the pads with an in-cutter to take his tally to three, on the second ball after the start of play. Haryana had lost seven wickets by then and Amit Mishra alongside Mohit Sharma were enroute to another partnership. Narwal scalped Mohit with a similar delivery that he bowled to Dalal, ending the 29-run stand. Finally his fifth victim was Amit Mishra, who having made 74, couldn't read the slower one and scooped it to mid-off to end the Haryana innings.

Despite the veteran's canny effort, Delhi's batsmen let the side down for the second time in the match. But Narwal's efforts would surely be a positive for the next round.
