New Delhi: Feb 24, 2012

 

For the third match in a row, Harbhajan Singh went wicket-less but his team were back to winning ways as they beat Jammu & Kashmir by 19 runs to register their second win in the North Zone leg match of the Vijay Hazare trophy.

 

It wasn’t one of the most convincing wins for Punjab as they could manage only 224 in 49.4 overs — courtesy 76 by former India colts’ wicketkeeper-batsman Chandan Madan. The other significant contribution came from Amitoze Singh who scored 54 while Taruwar Kohli contributed 31.

 

In reply, Jammu & Kashmir fought well but could only manage 205 for nine in their stipulated 50 overs. Harbhajan who hadn’t picked any wickets during the two matches against Haryana and Delhi this time gave away 42 runs in seven luckless overs.

 

It was left-arm spin twins Rajwinder Singh Golu (3/34) and Bipul Sharma (2/41) who made the difference as they got five wickets amongst themselves in the 20 overs giving away only 75 runs. It was pitch where the ball wasn’t coming onto the bat nicely and Harbhajan did well as bulk of the bowling was done by spinners.

 

For J&K, Pravez Rasool (51) and Ian Dev Singh (40) scored a few runs as most of the other batsmen struggled to come to terms with the conditions.(PTI)
