Kohli's ton in vain as UP win


Overnight 104 for two after being forced to follow on, Delhi’s batting collapsed after Kohli’s breezy 145-run knock that came off 173 balls.
The visitors were bundled out for 312 in their second innings which was 22 runs short of UP’s mammoth first essay total of 536.
Earlier, Puneet Bisht (79) and Kohli raised Delhi’s hopes of an unlikely draw as the two shared a 202-run partnership for the third wicket but once Kohli was dismissed Delhi began to sink.
