Resuming at the overnight score of 268 for 6, Delhi's hopes of overhauling the host's first innings total of 432 rested on centurion Jonty Sidhu and Lalit Yadav extending their partnership.
The duo started in a promising manner and played some attractive shots.
He also hit a superb straight six off Vijay Shankar.
Yadav looked good to join Sidhu in scoring a ton, but fell to Sai Kishore for 91.
Kishore got him caught in the short cover region when playing a drive, ending a partnership of 170 runs off 340 balls for the 7th wicket.
The left-arm spinner had Subodh Bhati caught off the first ball of his next over at slip by captain B Indrajith, but his chances of a hat-trick were foiled by a defence-minded Vikas Mishra.
Mishra lasted 42 balls but didn't trouble the scorers and was run-out going for a second run.
Navdeep Sain, the No.11, lasted only eight balls and his wicket gave Kishore a well-deserved five-wicket haul.
Batting a second time, Tamil Nadu was 113 for 1 in 40 overs when it chose to declare and bring an end to the proceedings.
Opener N Jagadeesan helped himself to 59 not out as the match meandered to a draw.
Kerala became the only team from Group 'B' to secure a spot in the quarterfinal.
