With only 78.2 overs of play possible through out the entire four days, both teams got a point each and Yuvraj Singh's 'Red' team with seven points from two games ensured that they are through for the summit clash.

The next game between 'Blue' and 'Green' team starting September 4 will decide on the other finalist.

Whoever gets at least the first innings lead is through but in case there is another wash-out and points are split, the Blue team will then go through with two points as the 'Green' team can then only log home a solitary point.

Brief Scores:

India Blue 285/5 in 78.2 overs (Mayank Agarwal 92, Gautam Gambhir 77, Kuldeep Yadav 4/78) vs India Red.
