Courtesy its first innings lead, Bengal collected three points while Tamil Nadu picked up one. The visitor, chasing 372 for victory and having an overnight score of 24 without loss, came agonisingly close of the target.

When Tamil Nadu (370 for nine) required only two runs for a success with one wicket in hand, bad light stopped play. Opener D Gauri Sankar (100) and all-rounder R Sonu Yadav (95) did well with the bat for the away side.

Brief scores: Bengal 270 all-out & 370 for 9 decl. drew with Tamil Nadu 269 all-out & 370 for 9 in 96 overs (D Gauri Sankar 100, K Vishal Vaidhya 39, S Swaminathan 50, R Sonu Yadav 95, S Ganesh 35, Pradipta Pramanik 4/108, Durgesh Dubey 2/52, Akash Deep  2/82).
