Batting first, Tamil Nadu had scored 571 for six declared after the opening day was washed out at the India Cement Limited Guru Nanak College Ground.

Rahul Dalal was the top-scorer for Haryana with an unbeaten 56 off 179 balls, which was laced with nine hits to the fence.

Opener Rahul Dewan (43) and Abhimanyu Khod (45) were the other two notable contributors for the visitors.

For the hosts, Sunil Sam, Yo Mahesh and B Aparajith took one wicket each.

Tamil Nadu and Haryana bagged one point each from the drawn tie.

Resuming at seven for no loss, openers Nitin Saini and Dewan added 40 runs when the former was caught by Arun karthik off Yo Mahesh in the 13th over.

Dewan and Khod then forged a 33-run partnership for the second wicket but the former was dismissed in the 27th over.

Khod then added 42 runs with Dalal for the third wicket before being dismissed by Sunil Sam in the 51st over.
