    J&K post 116-run win over Goa

    In Surat, riding on Parveez Rasool's five-wicket haul, Jammu and Kashmir posted a 116-run victory over Goa in a Group C Ranji Trophy match and earn full six points.

    Goa resumed on 22 for no loss, chasing 412, and openers Darshan Misal (42) and Swapnil Asnodkar (47) gave the team a good start by sharing a solid 87-run stand before medium pacer Samiullah Beigh got the breakthrough.

    Misal's dismissal triggered a collapse and Goa were suddenly reeling at 116 for four.

    Rasool then ran through the line up to pick up his seventh five-wicket haul; finishing with impressive figures of five for 89.

    Wicketkeeper Samar Dubhashi put up some resistance with an unbeaten 79, with the last two batsmen -- AG Pandrekar (20) and Felix Alemao (22) -- giving him company for close to 35 overs, but it was not enough to avoid the defeat in the end.

    Brief scores: J&K: 227 & 261; Goa: 77 & 295 all out in 92 overs (Samar Dubhashi 79 not out; Parvez Rasool 5/89).
