Guwahati: Assam and Himachal Pradesh shared a point each as their Group C Ranji Trophy match ended in a tame draw here on Tuesday.

Replying to Assam`s first-innings total of 354, Himachal Pradesh were 316 for five when stumps were drawn for the final time at the end of fourth day`s play.

Since the hosts could not bowl out Himachal, Assam had to be content with a point.

Struggling at 173 for five at one stage, Himachal were saved by Rishi Dhawan`s unbeaten knock of 114, and his 143-run sixth-wicket partnership with Aatish Bhalaik, who remained unbeaten on 57 at the Nehru Stadium.

Dhawan slammed 15 fours and a six during his 165-ball knock, while wicketkeeper-batsman Bhalik found the fence eight times.

Brief scores:

Assam 1st innings: 354 all out in 117.5 overs

Himachal Pradesh 1st innings: 316 for five in 124 overs (Dhawan not out 114).

Points: Assam 1, Himachal 1.
