Having already conceded a first-innings lead to Jammu & Kashmir on the third day, Rajasthan’s batsmen played out a draw on the fourth day in Jaipur.
J&K declared early on the fourth morning on 436 for 8, adding only four runs to their overnight score to take their lead to 106. J&K seamer Rohit Sharma then took two quick wickets to leave Rajasthan at 69 for 4 by the 20th over. However, Rajesh Bishnoi and Mahipal Lomror safely saw out the day for Rajasthan with an unbroken 177-run partnership. Bishnoi scored his third first-class hundred, ending the day on 101 not out off 138 balls, while 17-year-old Lomror played a steady 65 not out.
The match between Hyderabad and Maharashtra was abandoned without a ball bowled after rain wiped out all four days of play.
