STUMPS, DAY 1: India Green: 116/7; Overs 35
Tiwary and Dinda safely negotiate the dying moments of the day to take India Green to 116/7 in their first innings, still trailing India Red by 45 runs.

...

India Green: 108/7; Overs 32

...

India Green: 87/6; Overs 25
Two wickets in the over for Kuldeep Yadav. He now has 3 wickets.

Yuvraj Singh at first-slip makes no mistake. Wickets continue to tumble here. Gopal lasted just 3 balls.

...

India Green: 87/6; Overs 24.5
OUT! Shreyas Gopal edges a regulation delivery from Yadav to first-slip.

...

Shreyas Gopal is the new batsman for India Green. He has an average of 35 in first-class cricket with three hundreds to his credit.

...

Kuldeep Yadav tosses one, Raina swallows the bait and charges down to hit him over mid-wicket. Raina misses and is bowled. Its a rather embarassing dismissal for the India Green skipper.

...

India Green: 87/5; Overs 24.2
OUT! Just when we thought Raina was looking good, he commits a blunder. 

...

India Green: 87/4; Overs 24
India Green now trail by 74. Raina looks solid out there at the moment.

Parthiv Patel gets into the act now. He cuts a wide Ishwar Pandey delivery to the point boundary for four.

...

India Green: 55/3; Overs 16

...

India Green: 52/3; Overs 15

...

Raina punches Yadav over mid-on for four. Its hit against the spin but Raina manages to get to the pitch of the ball to put it away. Good looking shot that.

...

Raina is looking good here. He's timing the ball well and he appears assured as he leaves the ball.

...

India Green: 43/3; Overs 13

...

Raina pulls a short Kuldeep Yadav delivery to the wide long-on boundary for four. The crowd finally has something to cheer.

...

India Green: 38/3; Overs 12

...

Yuvraj Singh cannot believe it and stands wide eyed in astonishment. Replays confirm that Patel was indeed trapped in front. He survives though. 

...

Kuldeep Yadav's doing well. He had Parthiv Patel trapped in front. A huge appeal ensues but the umpire is unmoved.

...

India Green: 37/3; Overs 10

...

The flood-light problem has been fixed and we're back live now as play resumes.

...

The problem with the flood-flights continue. Play has been stopped as we wait for the organisers to get a hold of spare light bulbs. Here's one good reason why day-night domestic cricket wasn't a good idea in the first place.

...

Play has temporarily been stalled again due to the malfunctioning of the lights in one of the towers. Noida's power crisis continues! 

...

Change of bowling as Kuldeep Yadav come in and he's turning it big with the relatively new ball.

...

India Green: 33/3; Overs 8

...

Nathu Singh now has three.

...

Nathu Singh, India's answer to Dale Steyn as per Rahul Dravid, gets one to cut back in real sharp. It appeared to be heading down the leg-side on impact. Also, Singh's front foot seemed to land over the popping crease. Paliwal was not-out there on two accounts, yet he was sent back.

...

India Green: 31/3; Overs 6
OUT! Paliwal's been adjudged LBW. 

...

The pink-ball continues to move in the air as P Patel flashes wide outside the off-stump. The outside edge takes the ball wide of the slip fielders and Patel picks up four. 

...

India Green: 25/2; Overs 6

...

In comes Rajat Paliwal with an impressive first-class average of 51.76.

...

India Green: 25/2; Overs 5.5
Out! Nathu Singh's picked up another one here. He has J Saxena out caught behind.

...

J Saxena's looking good here as he cuts Nathu Singh through point and then lets the next one go through to the keeper.

...

Anureet Singh is sending in big in-swingers here. There's big movement here under the lights as J Saxena is having to get well forward to fend the in-swingers.

...

Nathu Singh is running in and delivering quick seam-up's. The pink ball flying across the pitch is a wonderful sight indeed.

...

Parthiv Patel and Jalaj Saxena resume for India Green.

...

We're back live now with the final session.

...

The food-lights have taken effect and its a wonderful sight here at the Greater Noida Sports Complex Ground. Stay tuned for the live action of the final session of play on day 1 of the Duleep Trophy for 2016.

...

India Red have managed to pick the prized wicket of Robin Uthappa before the dinner break. Robin's wicket was crucial as the opener from Karnataka can score big in quick time.
