Vadodara: India pacer Navdeep Saini helped Delhi bundle out Haryana for 154 but rain forced them to share points for the second day in a row in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in Vadodara on Wednesday.
While no play was possible in all three games of Group B at Vadodara on Tuesday, rain played spoilsport soon after Delhi dismissed Haryana in 32.4 overs with Saini taking four wickets for 36 runs in 6.4 overs.
Spinners Manan Sharma and Pawan Negi shared two wickets each.
The top-scorer for Haryana was Pramod Chandila, who made 58 off 57 balls.
Delhi could bat only for 1.3 overs before rain arrived at the Darshanam Sports and Education Academy Cricket Ground. Both teams shared two points each for the abandoned game.
Haryana had India leggie Yuzvendra Chahal in the playing eleven and Delhi had Rishabh Pant, who has copped criticism of late for his reckless strokemaking in India colours.
Rishabh would be aiming to get some runs under his belt ahead of the Test series against South Africa starting 2 October in Visakhapatnam.
The games between Baroda and Uttar Pradesh, and Himachal Pradesh and Punjab too were abandoned.
Young opener Shubman Gill, who has been picked for the South Africa series, made 23 as Punjab struggled to 169 for nine in 42 overs.
In response, Himachal were 22 for one in eight overs before rain stopped play.
At the Reliance Stadium, Baroda were reeling at 91 for eight against Uttar Pradesh before play was called off.

Rishabh Pant emphasised on the importance of building a partnership and not lose wickets especially with the team in a tricky position.
The former Pakistan leg-spinner wasn't impressed with Pant's leadership skills during India's T20I series against South Africa at home.
Yuzvendra Chahal wore a beanie throughout his time on the field owing to the cold weather in Dublin.
