Defending champions Rajasthan entered the Ranji Trophy final defeating Haryana by 64 runs at the Bansi Lal Stadium at Lahli, near Rohtak yesterday.

Haryana resumed their second innings at 15 for two on the third day, needing 170 runs for victory. They got into deeper trouble by losing two wickets quickly and they never looked like pulling it off.

Nitin Saini (23) and Sachin Rana (25) tried their best to keep them in the hunt, but once they left, Haryana folded up for 120 with Rituraj Singh (5/37) and Pankaj Singh (4/48) running through the side.
