Delhi batsman Dhruv Shorey missed out on a well-deserved century for the second consecutive game getting out for 93, but he helped India blue to 340 in the first innings on day two of the league match of Duleep Trophy 2018-19 being played at Dindigul on Thursday.

In reply, India Green finishes had 151 for 4 at the end of day two with Prashant Chopra (80) and Baba Indrajith (35) adding 89 runs in a little over 35 overs after openers Priyank Panchal and Sudip Chaterjee were dismissed without scoring as the team slumped to 9 for 2 in the seventh over.

Tamil Nadu medium-pacer K Vignesh underlined his potential, picking up a five-wicket haul, which was instrumental in restricting India Blue. Vignesh took four of the last six wickets to finish with figures of 5 for 50 from 25.1 overs.

Four batsmen made half-centuries for India Blue but a late collapse proved their undoing as the two sides battle for a place in the final, starting September 4.
