In order to end his cricketing career on a high, Gambhir decided to bid farewell in style. Andhra batted first against Delhi and put up 390 on board with Ricky Bhui making 187 and Subodh Bhati taking 5/48.

However, when it came time for Delhi to bat, Gautam Gambhir put on 108 with Hiten Dalal (58) and 82 with captain Dhruv Shorey (39*). The biggest news here is that Gambhir himself is not out on 92 runs off 154 balls with 8 fours and is poised for a dream goodbye to the team with a possible century on the horizon.

BRIEF SCORES:

ANDHRA 390 (R BHUI 187; S BHATI 5/48) lead DELHI 190/1 (G GAMBHIR 92*, H DALAL 58) by 200 runs
