Sehwag, Gambhir fail again as Delhi shot out for 235
The likes of Sehwag, Gambhir, Virat Kohli and Unmukt Chand were all back in the pavilion even before the lunch session, much to the disappointment of the capacity 15,000 crowd which expected some fireworks from the India stars in the Group B match.
Sehwag managed 25 while Gambhir and Kohli contributed 32 and 14 respectively. Unmukt, as usual, hit some lovely drives but did not go beyond an individual score of 28.
On a hazy day at the Nehru Stadium, Uttar Pradesh's right-arm medium pacer Imtiaz Ahmed bowled to a disciplined line as the much vaunted Delhi line-up could not make an impact.
Imtiaz grabbed five for 59 while out of favour seamer Praveen Kumar did his cause no harm by taking three wickets for 56 runs.
Delhi's first innings lasted only only 65.2 over. The highlight of the Delhi innings was 86 runs added for the fifth wicket by Mithun Manhas and Punit Bisht.
Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from international cricket after playing his 200th Test in the home series against the West Indies next month.
