Goa sail past Assam in Ranji trophy
Guwahati: Goa Off-spinner Amit Yadav wrecked Assam with a seven-wicket haul before his team chased 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 here on monday.
Reeling at 31 for four at stumps yesterday, 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.
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.
