Railways bowlers break Delhi hold

If the first couple of sessions belonged to Delhi seamer Sumit Narwal -- who returned with career-best figures of seven for 43 to dismiss Railways for 166, it was Railways’ new-ball bowler Anureet Singh who kept his team’s chances alive with an incisive spell in the last session to remove Shikhar (14), Mayank Tehlan (6) and Unmukt Chand (22). Aditya Jain (2) was dismissed by veteran Jai Prakash Yadav. However, it was Narwal who got into the act straightaway. Dismissing openers Faiz Fazal and Shreyas Khanolkar in his first two overs.
