Good Afternoon, नमस्कार! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog session of the third day of the Duleep Trophy 2017-18 tie between India Blue and India Green at Green Park in Kanpur. We will be bringing to you the live updates from this tie. Rain washed out play on day two of the match. Rain started before the start of day and continued till evening, forcing the umpires to call off play without a single being bowled in the final round robin fixture of the tournament. Rain had also played spoilsport in the match between India Blue and India Red last week with the game ending in a drab draw. 

The opening day was a good one for India Green who dismissed the Blue team for a paltry 177 before finishing the day at 100 for three. Parvez Rasool was the star for India Green with five wickets for 70 runs in 17 overs. Rasool was assisted well by pacer Aniket Choudhary’s 3 for 18 and left-arm spinner Mayank Dagar 2 for 11 as only five of the India Blue batsmen managed to reach double figures. In reply, Nitin Saini’s 25 and Kaushik Gandhi’s 39 gave India Green a patient 53-run opening start. Senior India speedster Ishant Sharma, playing a First- Class match after six months, bowled a steady line taking one for 15 in seven overs.
