Mandeep Singh looked set for a big score after rescuing the North Zone innings from a precarious 29 for 3, adding 74 runs for the fourth wicket along side Gurkeerat Singh Mann. Mandeep contributed 40 to a total of 103 in 26 overs. North Zone have an uphill task ahead of them as they need another 171 runs to win from 144 balls with almost half the batting fire power back in the hut. The onus now lies on the young shoulders of Gukeerat Singh Mann to take them close to the East Zone total of 273. Gurkeerat is batting on 47 from 64 balls.
