Dindigul : Uttar Pradesh left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar’s five-wicket haul helped India Green secure a vital 83-run lead against India Blue on a truncated

 Resuming at 151 for 4, India Green lost the wicket of Gurkeerat Mann (20, 4X4) with the score at 175 and Harpreet Singh Bhatia (3) four runs later, both to Saurabh Kumar.

The doughty Parthiv Patel (80, 109 balls, 8X4) meanwhile reached his half-century and added 40 runs for the seventh wicket with Aditya Sarwate (11).
