India Blue v India Green at Cuttack

IND Blue v IND Green: India Blue beat Green; face Red in Challenger final

India Green succumbed to a 19-run defeat against India Blue as they were all out for 199, with an over to spare in the Challenger Series for the NKP Salve Trophy at Barabati Stadium.
Green, thus, squandered their chances to make it to the final. India Blue will take on India Red in the final on Sunday. Cheteshwar Pujara’s valiant 65 was not enough for Green as they were chasing a target of 219 from 45 overs.
Ravichandran Ashwin picked up 3/46 in nine overs for the Blue. Green captain Mohammed Kaif scored a pain-staking seven off 32 balls.
Earlier, Robin Uthappa rode his luck to make 76 as India Blue were dismissed for 218 in 44.2 overs. Following overnight rains, the match, crucial for Green’s aspiration for tomorrow’s summit clash, started an hour late with the umpires deciding to make it a 45 over-a-side affair.
Under overcast conditions and intermittent drizzle, Blues made a slow start after they were put in to bat.
IND Blue v IND Green: India Blue 218 (44.2 overs) beat India Green 199 (44.0 overs) by 19 runs
