Delhi extended their lead against Haryana to 224 runs on a curtailed day three of the Ranji Trophy Group B match at Bansi Lal Cricket Stadium here on Wednesday.

Delhi, resuming their second innings at seven for no loss, had reached 134 for five at stumps on a day when only 38 overs could be bowled due to bad light.

Sumit Narwal and Rajat Bhatia were in the middle on 13 and 1 respectively after skipper Gautam Gambhir struck a handy 46. Haryana's seasoned medium pacer Joginder Sharma was the pick of the bowlers, taking three crucial wickets including first innings centurion Virender Sehwag (8).

Sehwag, who had hammered 147 on Tuesday, lasted for 25 balls and was trapped in front by Sharma.

Having already secured a first innings lead, group leaders Delhi would press for their fourth straight outright win on the final day, weather permitting of course.

The visitors took the crucial first innings lead yesterday by bowling out Haryana for 188 after making 278 in the first innings.

Brief Scores:

Delhi: 278 & 134/5 in 41 overs (Gautam Gambhir 46, Shivam Sharma 25; Joginder Sharma 3/18, Kuldeep Hooda 2/22).

Haryana: 188 all out.
