NKP Salve Challenger one-day cricket tournament 2006-07 Final
India Blue, India Red declared joint winners
India Seniors were 210 for four in 31.2 overs with Virender Sehwag going strong on 90, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni on 6 when play was stopped at 5.12 pm after a downpour. Sehwag blasted 14 boundaries and a six in his knock.
It rained heavily for an hour and then stopped. The umpires made one inspection and preferred to have another one before deciding on the fate of the match. When it rained heavily for the second time after 15 minutes,the umpires did not conduct any inspection before calling off the match at 7.45 pm.
VRV Singh was declared man of the series. Each team gets Rs 3.75 lakh as prize money. Rahul Dravid included Virender Sehwag in the playing eleven dispelling the rumour that he was not fit after an ankle injury he sustained on Sunday. Sehwag opened the innings with Sachin Tendulkar.
India Red captain Venugopal Rao opted for Subramaniam Badrinath for Delhi's Gautham Gambhir. Tendulkar, who had scored 61 and 139 in the earlier two matches, could not open his account as Zaheer Khan dismissed him in the last ball of the first over of the innings, caught brilliantly by Robin Uthappa in the covers.
Sehwag was looking good for a century but rain interrupted the play and both teams were declared joint winners. India seniors have claimed the trophy on six occasions, while India-A had won four times including sharing it with India-B in 1998-99, when the tournament was known as NPK Salve Challenger Trophy.
