HP scored scintillating win over Goa
Porvorim: Himachal Pradesh spinners Aakash Vashisth (5-38) and Rahul Singh (4-19) mesmerised Goan batsmen on a turning track of Porvorim Cricket Academy to guide Himachal Pradesh to a hard fought 32 runs victory and collected full points in the U-19 Cooch Behar four-day league cricket match.
Required just 111 runs for the outright win, Goa`s second inning collapsed like a pack of cards as they were all out for 79 runs in 41 overs.
Though both the Himachal spin duo bowled well in tandem, the Goan batsmen failed to apply their mind and fell meekly on a turning track.
Darshan Misal, Vikas Shetty and Keenan Vaz failed to open their accounts. Only Reagan Pinto, Ganeshraj Narvekar and Prathmesh Gaus showed some resistance to HP Spin Duo.
