Ranji Trophy, Group C: Goa register 10-wicket win over Assam

Guwahati: Goa Offspinner Amit Yadav wrecked Assam with a seven-wicket haul before his team chased down down a 50-run target with ease to clinch a 10-wicket win on the fourth and final day of their Ranji Trophy Group C encounter on Monday.

Reeling at 31 for 4 at stumps on Sunday, Assam collapsed to 208 to set Goa a target of 50 runs. Amit was the undisputed star of the Goa show, doing the bulk of the bowling.

His 31 overs, including nine maidens, cost merely 69 runs and yielded seven wickets for the visiting side. Jamaluddin Syed Mohammed was the top-scorer for the hosts with 67 runs.

In reply, Goa hardly broke a sweat in chasing down the paltry target with openers Amogh Sunil Desai (14) and Swapnil Asnodkar (33) clinching the issue in 9.5 overs to give the team its second win in five matches.

Brief Scores: Assam: 247 and 208 all out in 79.3 overs (Jamaluddin Syed Mohammed 67, Amit Yadav 7/69); Goa: 406/9d and 50/0 in 9.5 overs

Maharashtra scores easy 9-wicket win over J&K

AT Pune, Opener Harshad Khadiwale smashed a run-a-ball 74 to power Maharashtra to an emphatic nine-wicket win over Jammu and Kashmir in Group C match of the Ranji Trophy.

With just 124 runs to chase for an outright win, Khadiwale preferred to adopt an attacking approach and struck as many as 13 boundaries during his unconquered innings to overwhelm the target in 26.2 overs.

Vijay Zol (26) and Sangram Dilip Atitkar (21 not out) also made notable contributions in Maharashtra's chase.

Earlier, resuming their second innings at the overnight score of 333 for 6, skipper Parvez Rasool struck a quick-fire unbeaten 64 to delay the inevitable for Jammu and Kashmir, who were eventually bowled out for 439 in 153.5 overs.

Rasool took the attack to the opposition and decorated his 65-ball knock with seven hits to the fence and two sixes.

Overnight batsmen Samiullah Beigh (23) and Ram Dayal (32) batted for a while before both becoming pacer Shrikant Mundhe's victims.

Mundhe finished with impressive figures of five for 123 while leg-spinner Bharatkumar Solanki scalped three wickets giving away 47 runs.

By virtue of this win, Maharashtra pocked six points from the match.

Brief Scores: Jammu and Kshmir: 85 and 439 all out in 153.5 overs (Obaid Haroon 94, Bandeep Singh 79; Parvez Rasool 64 not out; Shrikant Mundhe 5/123, Bharatkumar Solanki 3/47); Maharashtra - 401/9 decl & 126 for one in 26.2 overs (Harshad Khadiwale 74 not out; Waseem Raza 1/15)

Tripura, Hyderabad share one point each after dull draw

At Hyderabad, DB Ravi Teja (175) and skipper Akshath Reddy (149) scored a century each to ensure that Hyderabad did not get out in their first innings against Tripura as it gave both the teams one point each after their Group C Ranji Trophy tie ended in a dull draw on the fourth and final day.

When stumps were drawn on the last day, Hyderabad were 566 for 8 in their first innings in reply to Tripura's 650 for 8 declared.

Since the first innings of both the teams were not completed in four days, both shared a point each with Tripura failing to earn three points despite a lead in the first essay. Only 16 wickets fell in four days.

Hyderabad resumed on 258 for 1 with last night's centurion Reddy and Ravi Teja on the crease.

Reddy, however, could add just 11 more runs to his overnight score of 138 before being dismissed for a well-made 149 off 251 balls, laced with 20 boundaries.

He also put on 250 runs for the second wicket with Ravi Teja.

Ravi Teja, who resumed on 90, completed his ton and also shared a solid 131-run partnership with Hanuma Vihari (55) for the third wicket.

Ravi Teja's knock came from 325 deliveries with 14 hits to the fence and two sixes. Bavanaka Sandeep (41), Syed Quadri (40) and Amol Shinde (35 not out) also chipped in with important runs.

Brief scores: Tripura: 650 for eight declared; Hyderabad: 566 for eight in 171 overs (DB Ravi Teja 175, Hanuma Vihari 55; Tushar Saha 5/150)
