Duleep Trophy: A decade long wait ends for South Zone

South Zone outclassed West Zone to win the Duleep Trophy with a 75-run victory at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. In pursuit of a target of 298 runs, West Zone, who resumed their innings at 182/5 on the final day, were eventually bowled out for 222. This victory marked South Zone’s 14th Duleep Trophy title, and it held special significance as a form of redemption. In the previous year’s final, West Zone had triumphed over South Zone by a massive margin of 294 runs.

South Zone faced a major hurdle in their quest for the title in the form of Priyank Panchal, who had resumed his innings on 92. However, Panchal could only add three runs to his overnight score before edging a delivery from pacer Vidwath Kaverappa, who was later named the ‘Man of the Match’, to wicketkeeper Ricky Bhui.
