Day 1: Parvinder Awana's late strikes help Delhi restrict Haryana to 219/6

The pitch was dry in nature which forced Delhi management to include off-spinner Manoj Chauhan who gave away 89 runs in 27 overs. Although the young off-spinner was successful in beating the batsman on a few occasions, he wasn't consistently giving the ball air or inviting the batsmen to drive.

Awana removed Sachin Rana and rival captain Amit Mishra in quick succession with the second new ball as the hosts frittered away a good start provided by openers Rahul Dewan (71) and Nitin Saini (45).

The duo added 69 runs for the opening stand but save Rahil Dalal (42 batting), the others didn't make any significant contribution.

Awana finished the day on three for 39 from 17 overs.
